Dining: Nine Dragons

 This past weekend I attended the last days of this years Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot and had a great time.  The park was pretty busy as it was the last weekend and the weather was beautiful.  We were able to see Mickey Dolez perform as part of the Flower Power Concert Series, he was filling in for Davy Jones who passed away earlier this year.  He was great and the crowd gave him a standing ovation.
 For lunch we decided to eat at the Nine Dragons restaurant located in the China Pavillion as we hadn't eaten there in a while.  The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.   Nine Dragons offers cusine from the four regions of China:  Cantonese, Szechuan, Mandarin and Kiangche.
We ordered the Honey Seasame Chicken (16.98) and the Canton Pepper Beef (15.98), both were delicious.  The menu is varied and offers more selections than a typical Chinese restaurant.  As is typical for a theme park the prices are more expensive, about 20 percent more than chain restaurants, but the quality of the food is much better.  
Service was exceptional, the server was very attentive and knowledgable.  We ate at 2pm a great time because it's not very busy, we were seated as soon as we walked in.  The restaurant was redisgned inside a few years ago and it's very beautiful, the decor is Chinesse but done with in more modern design.  The Nine Dragons is a great dining option.  The full menu can be found on line.
