The Lemony Chick

Dragonfly owners, Brent Wong and Tania Siladi, were inspired by their father’s Chinese restaurant, The Jasmin, for this year’s Festival Dish. Lemon chicken was the most popular order at their father’s restaurant and Brent and Tania have fond memories of going there every day after school and feasting on this delicious dish. For their version of lemon chicken, Dragonfly is giving it a modern Japanese twist with bite-sized karaage style chicken and yuzu in the sauce. The Jasmin Licensed Chinese Restaurant was and still is, located on the mezzanine floor of the James Cook Arcade on Lambton Quay. The current owner was a former employee of their father’s, who worked his way up from kitchen hand and eventually purchased the business when their father retired.

Dish Description: Karaage free-range chicken with NZ Yuzu, lemon sauce, 26 Seasons China Rose radish and coconut rice
