Hidden Gem in an Alley
Imagine… You are going to meet some friends out to have dinner. “No big deal!”, you’re thinking- not the first time. Now Imagine… The GPS on your phone, that is directing you to the restaurant is taking you down a back alley of the town. GPS showing you that in 200 feet, you have reached your destination. What would be your thoughts and feelings about going to eat at a restaurant in a back alley? About five years ago, that same situation happened to me. Myself and a group of my friends agreed we all wanted to try out this highly recommended restaurant, The Goblin Market. It was locally known as the town of Mt. Dora’s ‘Hidden Gem’.

Ironically, each of us girls decided to get a martini and chose a different flavor. I went with the Key Lime martini. It had graham cracker encrusted around rim of glass, with the smell and sweet creamy taste of key lime pie, still makes my taste buds aroused thinking about it. Each of our martini’s ordered were not only delicious but a beautiful to look at, a crafted master piece. As an appetizer I got the Lobster Bisque soup. The bisque’s coloring of peach-cream, was not too thick nor thin having the perfect consistency. A tasteful blend I personally enjoyed with the hint of dry sherry and the large pieces of real lobster. The Filet Marchard De Vin was my entrée, a flawless presentation of the eight-ounce filet sitting atop a potato cake, topped with melted fontina cheese and finished with a port wine sauce. The entrée had a succulent sinful taste with the perfectly cooked juicy filet. An excellent choose of ingredients, the sweet (port wine sauce), salty (potato cake and seasonings), and cream (fontina cheese) blended together magnificently. Unfortunately, we all were way too full to even attempt to try a

    At first glance, the portions served seem a bit overwhelming. When ordering appetizers you have in mind “it’s just enough food to keep you full until the actual dinner is served,” but this was not the case at the Double Dragon. Nonetheless, I continued to sample the appetizers and to satisfaction, the spring rolls actually had fresh crispy cabbage and medium pieces of shrimp in each bite! The steamed dumplings were steamed perfectly, the beef inside was extremely tender making the steamed dumplings a complete success. The crab ragoons did not fall behind of its appetizer competitors, because they were crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside.…

    I tried three different kinds of pizza - the cheese, pepperoni, and finally the meat lovers. Though all the deep dish pies were tremendous with their glazed brown crust and sauce smoothly layered on top, the meat lovers pizza was my favorite.

The chips are a few millimeters thick, which is much thicker than regular potato chips found in a vending machine.…

I went to some Michelin Star restaurants in Hong Kong, but these dumplings were the best. There were good Chinese restaurants everywhere.
