I had dinner at Pearl Dragon in Pacific Palisades the other night and was pleasantly surprised (I wasnt expecting much). The restaurant has a fun, slightly cool atmosphere and serves Pan Asian cuisine as well as sushi. The people I was with shared several of the small plates for dinner. The spring rolls and chicken sate were definitely not worth revisiting. However, the minced chicken and lettuce cups and Vietnamese potstickers were both good. For three people this was plenty of food.
I would go back to try the sushi (they have a small sushi bar) but this is obviously a place where the dishes are very hit or miss and you need to know what to order. Also I heard they have good cocktails but did not feel like drinking that evening. If anyone has been here and has any recommendation of what to get please let me know.
