Blue Dragon - the amazing Ming Tsai comes to Boston

Based on the my most recent post and this one, it may seem like I go out to lunch a lot, but I am really just backed up on blogging!  My co-worker and I have birthdays only days apart, so we jointly thought it would be a great idea to celebrate with an outing to Blue Dragon - working with a bunch of foodies has its perks.  Ever since Ming Tsai opened his second restaurant in Boston, I could not wait to go.  Located in the Seaport District the space is a bit industrial with an Asian decor flair.

Since we were there on a Tuesday for lunch, there was no wait (lucky us!).  Having read more than a few things on Blue Dragon before heading over, including the inclusion on the Eater Boston Burger List, I could not resist the burger.  The burger comes with teriyaki onions, smoked gouda, tomato jam and house fries, and the onion ring topper didn't hurt!  The burger was delicious - cooked a perfect medium rare with so many flavors in each bite.  I thought maybe it would be too much, but they really just worked together perfectly!  Be advised - the burger is only available for lunch.

Perfect Medium Rare - the bun was so light and airy
As a table, we ordered some appetizers to share, including the Teriyaki Salmon with Cha Soba Noodle Salad with Wasabi Vinaigrette; the Thai Beef Salad with Green Papaya, Grapefruit and Lime Vinaigrette; and the fried rice.

Beef Salad and Fried Rice
All three of these dishes were unbelievable.  The fried rice is what I wish all delivery fried rices would taste like - seriously delicious.  The two salads would make for great main dishes.  If you have not been to Blue Dragon I would highly recommend a trip to Sea Port.
