You can find traditional Chinese food items such as egg rolls, fried wontons, chop suey and chow mein in a typical Golden Dragon menu. There are several different Chinese restaurants called Golden Dragon located in different parts of the country, but they all serve similar foods.
A typical Golden Dragon menu features many varieties of chow mein, including pork, chicken, beef and vegetable. Chow mein is a traditional Chinese dish consisting of stir-fried noodles. In Chinese, the word "chow" means "fried" and the word "mein" means noodles. The American-Chinese version typically also features some type of protein, along with onions and celery. The noodles are served in either steamed or crispy styles.
Egg rolls are another menu item typically served at Golden Dragon restaurants. An American-Chinese egg roll is a dish made from a flour dough wrap and a filling of some type of meat, usually pork, chicken or shrimp, and various vegetables, including cabbage, bean sprouts and carrots. The flour wrap is stuffed with the filling and then deep-fried or baked, resulting in a savory roll that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Egg rolls and chow mein can be ordered on their own, but they are also both featured in many Golden Dragon combination platters.
