Paradise Dynasty Podium - A delectable review

Xiao Long Bao goodness 
and more at Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty is famous for their Xiao Long Bao and long line of mouthwatering dishes, hails from Singapore and has numerous branches across Asia.  The craft of making Xiao Long Bao has been perfected by Paradise Dynasty, hand made and steamed upon order.  

I get very excited everytime I chance upon dining at Paradise Dynasty, and look forward to every delectable bite of their exciting dishes - Note "exciting"

Why exciting?  Because they make your dining experience one to behold, from the ambiance, to the service, and attention to detail in preparing your dishes, Paradise Dynasty makes sure that you get the whole package.

Now let's go to the fun part, let us show case what Paradise Dynasty has instore for you.

First and foremost, Xiao Long Bao.  I have a long and loving relationship with Xiao Long Bao, and Paradise Dynasty makes it all the more special, apart from their regular Xiao Long Bao, they only serve the world's first and only flavored Xiao Long Bao, not just one but 7 Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao flavors!

On the left we have the regular Xiao Long Baos which I totally love love love, and on the right we have Paradise Dynasty's Flavored Xiao Long Baos.  

 We have Ginseng, Foie Gras, Black Truffle, Cheesy, Crab Roe, Garlic and Szechuan.  These flavors are lined up from the savory to the most flavorful ones, up your ante and enjoy these new flavors, and give your tastebuds an adventure they will never forget.

So how to enjoy your Xiao Long Bao?

Make sure you consume as soon as it arrives, it is always better if its hot!  Ok so lift the Xiao Long Bao out of the steamer by its strongest part, the topknot, use your spoon for support if needed.  Resting on its back on your spoon, nibble a small hole to let out the steam.  Then sip the tasty soup from the spoon, dip it gently into the dish of vinegar ( add some ginger to taste ), Enjoy!

Paradise Dynasty Xiao Long Bao starts at P298 for 10 pieces and up for the other flavors.

So what are the other exciting dishes that Paradise Dynasty has for us?  Let's start the ball rolling.

Let's go with our favorites!!! What you see is a bowl of Pork Dumpling in Hot Chili Vinaigrette (P168 for 6 pieces), honestly, I can finish a whole order of this, can yes I will order another for me.  I love the flavorful meat wrapped then smothered in the chili vinaigrette, the scallions in the meat makes it just perfect, the scent is just beyond words and top it off with the hot chili.. ah heaven!  

Don't be fooled as this appetizer is just right there at the fine line between mild and spicy, trust even the ones who don't eat spicy would definitely fall for this.

Next up is Radish Pastry (P138 for 3 pieces).  This crisp and sweet dimsum appetizer is a must order.  If you love to mix a little sweetness in your life, then you have to have one of this.  Share with a friend or devour on your own, it's all up to you.  The hot Radish filling is nothing like you have ever tasted, and as I have tried so many restaurants, you can not have this being served in other establishments, so dig in.

Do I see Mickey Mouse over here?  Haha, no that is the Charcoal Custard Lava Bun. (P188 for 3 pieces)

These custard buns, ooze of custard juices with every bite, mind you the filling is hot, so be careful when you take a bite, you would not want to burn you tongue.

Ok let's go feed our hungry tummies more!

Chilled Tofu with Century Egg (P188), just look how fine they look, the tofu is so smooth and silky, every bite feels like you're biting into clouds.  

New on the menu is Chilled Baby Spinach with Vermicelli (P288), I am not a fan of veggies, but this I totally loved... the sweet, the spice, the sour flavors rolled into one!  Didn't expect that you can even do that to your veggies, I will be back for this.

 Chill on the sweet side and munch on these Paradise Dynasty favorites, the Steamed Glutinous Rice stuff in Red Dates (P238), if there is something to crave for when you're pregnant this should be it!  It's mesmerizing flavours keep you coming back for more.

On to our Main Dish...

Stir Fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce served with Chinese Crepes (P388), oh the black bean sauce is just wonderful, blending well with the stir fried pork, perfectly fusing in the flavors, now please give me one...

Now this!  Scambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy (P328), now let me explain to you a brief history on how this dish came to be, in the dynasty days of China, the empress wanted to have crab meat, but all of the city was out of crab meat, so the cook reinvented the crab meat and used egg whites instead, and look they really look like crab meat and they taste like crab meat too!! Try it to believe!

Here are some other dishes you would want to try out at Paradise Dynasty!

Kung Pao Chicken (P298) 

Spiced just right, kids and adults will love this alike, I for one had a mouthful of these, it's perfect with rice.

Crispy Fried Crystal Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk (P588)

Love every bite of this!  It's dishes like this, that you just want to nibble on your food and enjoy every sip and flavor, hoping it would not finish haha.  Be careful of your cholesterol though, ha but apart from that, this is a must order at Paradise Dynasty.

Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken (P298)

This is one crispy chicken for the people who just love spicy foods!  Hot enough to keep you wanting more.

Now to our most exciting dish at Paradise Dynasty!  The Poached Beef in Szechuan Chili (P788)

Why the most exciting, it's the biggest serving of the house and is the spiciest of them all.  Advise your server if you want it less spicy, but it you love spicy then this is the one!

Every succulent piece of beef packs a punch!  I assure you it will leave you breathless, literally!  Spiciness so lip numbing, it'a always perfect with a cup of rice.
