Dragon Sea Buffet in Springfield, VA

Lee | Jan 5, 200510:17 PM     4

I had a late lunch there today, and they are still the best bargain in the area that I have found for dim sum and Chinese food. Lunch is only $7.00, and they always have a huge selection to choose from, plus a beverage is included (oolong tea, sodas, etc.). Here's what I remember from today. On the dim sum table: fried taro stuffed with chicken, shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, siu mai, chicken feet, tiny spare ribs in black bean sauce, fried sesame balls with bean paste, turnip cakes, and steamed BBQ pork buns. At the other counters: Seafood: whole flounder, whole crabs in ginger sauce, squid in a spicy sauce, cod stuffed with crab, fresh periwinkles, and mussels in soy and ginger sauce. Chicken: five-spice chicken on a skewer, General Tso's, roast, fried, and cooked with vegies. Meats: beef and pork dishes (sorry, can't remember what). Starches: steamed and fried rice, cellophane and lo mein noodles. Vegies: mixed steamed greens, Szechuan string beans. Soup, sushi, ice cream, jello, fruit and pastries also. Plus lots more that I can't remember. AND there's even more on the weekend. YUM!
