Chef & owner Johnny Chang began his culinary journey at the age of 15, as a student, taught restaurant style, by a master in Taiwan. He has always had an idea to bring the tastes of the Taiwanese nightlife street markets and bring others the real street food spirit.
Ambiance and main dining interior architecture is very reminiscent of a scene out of a Chinese Kung Fu movie. You'll feel like the main hero character, stepping off the movie set, here at Dragon Gate.
The movie, Dragon Gate Inn, has a lot of symbolic meaning to Chef Johnny. It speaks to him the same experience he would like to share with all the guests at Dragon Gate Bar and Grille. No matter what your background is, everyone is treated the same here, at Dragon Gate. Come, have a good time of commaderie amongst friends, enjoy good eats and drinks, and have fun all at the same time. Like the movie, Dragon Gate Inn, everyone Is their own hero; you will always have a seat at Dragon Gate. So come, and Enter The Dragon!
What is Taiwanese lifestyle most famous for? It's the nightlife of street food markets! Chef & owner Johnny Chang's concept design for Dragon Gate is an essence of that very nightlife cuisine, uniquely wrapped and brought to life with a fusion of Oakland flavor, located here in Jack London Square!
