BLUE EYE DRAGON
Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
Tucked down the end of Pyrmont's Harris Street, Blue Eye Dragon is an elegant little restaurant that excels at delivering the fresh flavours of Taiwan. The first thing that strikes you when you arrive is the iron gate, shaped like a dragon guarding the entrance, the second is the dining room, which is modern and moodily lit, which tells us this is a decent date location.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

If you happen to stray into the Blue Eye Dragon's line of sight, you will undoubtedly soon find yourself ensconced inside as you give yourself over to the remarkable flavours of Taiwan. Tucked down the end of Pyrmont's Harris Street, this elegant little restaurant is about as far removed from its contemporaries in Chinatown as you can get, with slate grey walls, warm cherry wood floors and gentle lighting that illuminates beautiful works of art. Blue Eye Dragon is a family owned affair, with Muriel Chen cheerfully running the floor and her mother, Jade, overseeing the kitchen.

The clean cut flavours of the menu are Jade's creation, having been inspired by the dishes she cooks for her family. And like any mother wanting the best for her children (or customers), only the most superior produce and ingredients will do. The dumplings at Blue Eye Dragon have earned quite the reputation for being divine and they certainly are – plump little pockets of prawns, water chestnuts, shallots and Chinese celery in glossy white pastry disappear into the mouth with alarming speed. Tender eye fillet in black pepper sauce tempts as a main, as does slow-cooked pork belly in soy, aniseed, garlic and light chilli. Stick to some Movenpick ice-cream for dessert and remember to take some frozen dumplings home with you.

Blue Eye Dragon is not really a secret but I'm constantly surprised at how many people don't know this wonderful Taiwanese restaurant in a backstreet in Pyrmont. Great dumplings made in house and I love the pork cheeks.
