Dragon Star’s chefs make all sauces and menu items from scratch in authentic Cantonese and Szechuan styles. Full-course combination meals fuse all the full-bodied flavors of a bustling Hong Kong marketplace by pairing a meat- or tofu-based entrée with steamed or fried rice, a choice of soup, a side, and a dessert. The Kung Pao chicken combination delivers a cheek-filling karate chop ($11.95), while the sautéed tofu with bean sprouts or mixed vegetables is the stuff of savory soy-based dreams ($11.75). The House Special combination meal is a harmonious grouping of chicken, pork, and shrimp that can be cooked in a spicy Szechuan or tangy orange sauce with no MSG, trans fats, or temper tantrums ($13.95). À-la-carte options are also available, including items such as shrimp with broccoli ($12.75), honey-garlic chicken ($11.25), and sweet-and-sour tofu ($10.75), all served with a choice of soup and rice.
