Dragonfly vs. Slanted Door

It's been a long time since I checked out Dragonfly on the rec of my Lonely Planet writer friend (she's penned the SF guide for the past few years) who claims this resto is better than The Slanted Door. No way, I said. That just can't be. Charles Phan practically walks on water ... he can do no wrong ...

Well, Dragonfly's shaking beef (bouncy cubes of filet mignon sitting on a bed of arugula) was pretty Ah-mazing ... as amazing as Phan's rendition.

The stir-fried garlic noodles brought oohs and ahhs all 'round. Super fatty, super garlicky, super delicious.

But the steamed sea bass, though tender and moist, fell a bit short. I'm just not a fan of the banana leaf ... the fish was overwhelmed by it, and no amount of spiced soy sauce could neutralize its flavor.

As it stands, Slanted Door and its quick/casual cousin Out the Door still reign supreme, but Dragonfly certainly finished a strong second ... I'll go back some day ...

1 essential suggestion for university students who live in dorms with communal baths would be to usually put on turn flops when taking a shower. You are sharing a shower area with dozens otherwise numerous other college students so make sure to keep yourself as clean as possible by sporting shower stockings every time its time to clean up up.
