A couple of weeks ago, we went to one of those paint your own pottery places (you know, like where we got engaged, but not that one). Our friends Jamie and Dave were painting some stuff and we hung out with them for a while, before having dinner with them. I didn’t paint anything, but Jason painted a dinosaur. And then last weekend, we went to pick it up.
The pottery place we went to was in Emory Village so we decided to have lunch there and after picking up the dinosaur, we went to Doc Chey’s Dragon Bowl. Doc Chey’s Dragon Bowl is an offshoot of Doc Chey’s – a local noodle place. This location used to be Doc Chey’s for years but they recently turned it into the Dragon Bowl. Not sure why. A search on Yelp revealed that people were not impressed by the change. Most of the bad reviews were written by people who were upset that the restaurant had changed.
I, on the other hand, love a build your own type restaurant. And that’s what Doc Chey’s Dragon Bowl is.
First you choose the style of your bowl. They have Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese and Thai style. Then you choose your base – ramen, salad greens, vermicelli or dragon rice. And finally your veggies and meat.
I went with Vietnamese style with salad greens, roasted broccoli, roasted cauliflower and tofu.
I loved it. Yelpers be damned.
