Rappahannock Restaurant

Oysters + pearls
Originally uploaded by EatingVideo
I visited Rappahannock Restaurant in Richmond, VA twice, both with my parents who fell in love with the place on the first visit and insisted on a return visit. This was several months ago now, so the menu may have changed.

We ordered the brandade Brandade A potato and cod emuslion of sorts, which my father really enjoyed. Also the Cured Salmon Cured salmon We ordered clams Clams Which came with toasted bread. Delicious and briny, great seasoning. I always order oysters, but we also ordered pearls and oysters, the combo of oysters and salmon roe. Oysters + pearls This combo is perfect, and my father in particular loved it and ordered it on our next visit as well. The boy and I had the lemonade from the bar which was excellent. Very likely will go back for more oysters and the great seafoood dishes. Certainly beats having to go to DC for great oysters. Rappahannock Restaurant on Urbanspoon

My wife and I were actually the first lunch guests at Fat Dragon (Jan 2013) on Boulevard the day they opened for lunch. The staff were obviously ready for us and the rest of the crowd that followed. The menu has changed considerably since then
The lunch menu at that time was limited as compared to the dinner menu or the current menu on the site. we went with some crispy spring rolls

The rolls were crispy served with a chilli mustard sauce, Tasted great.
My wife also had a wonton soup with her order.


A terrible picture but a good appetizer.
I had the Kumpao shrimp which was spicy accompanied by Kimchi wich was flavorful but not terribly spicy.
