Review: Paradise Dynasty

One of my favorite Chinese Cusine place has to be Paradise Dynasty.. I love the food there and the service has always been great :D

Here’s some of the dishes I will recommend if you’re visiting for the first time!

Pan-fried Shanghai Pork Buns (生煎包) $4.20
These are the best pork buns ever and I definitely order them whenever I visit! It’s pan-fried but not oily and the skin is crispy on the outside yet juicy on the inside! The inner is something similar to xiao long bao, only less watery!

Xiao Long Bao $8.80 (6 pcs)
If you’re visiting for the first time, you should try out their basket of 8 signature flavoured Xiao Long Bao (namely Original, Garlic, Ginseng, Foie Gras, Black Truffle, Cheese, Crab Roe, and Szechuan). I tried it once but am not particularly fond of some flavours thus I stick with the original flavours for now. I love the XLB here – the skin is thin, with lots of ‘soup’ and the meat is tender. My boyfriend prefers Imperial Treasure’s Xiao Long Bao more. Personal preference I suppose!

“Yang Zhou” Fried Rice (扬州炒饭) $10.80
Tasty fried rice is a must-try. Order this instead of white rice. The portion is generous and good to share for two.
They have about 4 types of fried rice and this is the best one, in my opinion.

Crab Meat With Egg White And Yolk $12+
Okay, I was pretty confused cause I thought I ate this before but it turns out I ate this dish at Crystal Jade! When I tried this at Paradise, it tasted a little ‘meh’.. Can be rather ‘jelat’ after a few mouthfuls.

Drunken Chicken $7+
The drunken chicken is really aromatic with a strong scent of chinese liquor. I was having a hangover and upon one bite of this chicken, I felt really unwell again (that goes to show how generous they are with the liquor!) Many places only use a little, you can barely even taste any hint of liquor in the dish.

Chilled Assorted Eggs Loaf in Yang Zhou Style $6+
This has to be one of my favorite items on the menu too! I am guessing the top white part is made out of fluffy egg white while the bottom is made up of salted egg yolk and century egg. Very light, refreshing and served chilled.

Overall, I’d recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for decent chinese food, priced in the mid range with a great variety. Waiting times can be pretty long if you’re going in a larger group so be prepared to queue cause they don’t do reservations. The branch at Ion is especially crowded so do give the other branches a try :)
