Dragon Lord Cafe on Fraser St, Vancouver


We met up with Rey when Ben got back from Beijing in January. Ben wanted to pass a Chinese culinary book to Rey.

It was a beautiful sunny winter day with the snow capped mountain in view.

We met up at Dragon Lord Cafe on Fraser St. It was a recommendation by Oliver who simply loves Hong Kong style cafe.

We were there around noon and it was already packed. The restaurant has simple decor with long and narrow setting.

Like most Chinese restaurants, specials posters were pasted on the wall.

Rey ordered a Beef Brisket Curry which came with rice. It was …rich and creamy. The curry sauce is great with steamed rice.

Ben and I shared a Lamb Hot Pot which was on special. It is loaded with bean curd sticks, lamb and some lettuce.

The skin on and bone in lamb is tender.

There is also some bamboo shoot in the hot pot.

Prices are quite reasonable and the food is good. We’ll definitely come back to check out other dishes.

  1. @Minnie – that’s too bad ! Did they tell you if it’s just a name or owner change ? Or is Moon Cafe completely different restaurant ?

  2. Just called them today and found out they have closed down an will switch to Moon Cafe starting Tues … what a lose for cheap tasty hong kong style breakfast.

  3. So after reading this review, we went there on Saturday evening to try them out. Packed ! Place was busy at 6:15pm, but luckily we didn’t have to wait > 5 mins for a table to clear. Ordered the baked sole fillet on rice, beef, lily & fungus hot pot set meal, and lychee+S&S pork set meal (originally ordered Chinese sausages with fried lotus root but they came back later to say they’re sold out of it). All dishes’ portions were very generous, and were restrained in the amount of oil and salt (or MSG) in the cooking. We liked it ! The sole fillet was actually deep-fried a la cutlet, so it has a nice crunch despite being topped in the white bechamel/cheesy sauce.

    The set meals, being $9.95 and which each comes with a heaping bowl of rice, a drink of choice, are terrific deals IMO. But I noticed the portions differ depending on what you order ….. it seems the hot pots are fairly modest in size, compared to the non-hot pot dishes.

    A bonus to Dragon Lord is they have congees, which isn’t always the case in other HK-style cafes.

    We’ll be back ! 🙂

  4. That lamb hot pot and curry brisket look great ! I must have driven/walked by this place hundred times but always thought they’re just a bubble tea shop. Thx for the review Suanne, I’ll check them out one day soon ….. another option on S. Fraser 😀
