Paradise Dynasty

January 23, 2018


I've been wanting to try this restaurant out ever since I saw their 8 flavors of Xiao Long Bao flavors on social media. But their first branch (S Maison, Conrad Seaside Boulevard) was too far from me. I was estactic to hear they opened another branch in The Podium last December 17, 2017.  This Singapore based restaurant serves delicious Chinese cuisine at affordable prices.  I liked almost of the dishes they served. 

XIAO LONG BAO 
Specialty Dynasty (Php 388) Colorful xiao long bass that represent different flavors. There is a sequence for you to eat it for optimal taste of flavors. You start from the lightest to the strongest flavors. It's so pretty to look at and it tastes good too. I will go back to try it out by myself from Original to Szechuan. 

Original (Php 188 - 6pcs / Php 298 - 10 pcs) You can't beat original flavor. It's safe yet flavorsome. I liked it and can eat 10 pieces in one sitting.


APPETIZER
Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette (Php 328) My favorite appetizer, lightly seasoned  dressing topped on jellyfish and julienned green mangoes. 

Steamed Glutinous Rice Stuffed in Red Dates (Php 238) I liked the mochi consistency but I wasn't a fan of red dates.


HOT DISHES
Stir-fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce served with Chinese Crepe (Php 388) It reminiscent of my childhood restaurant we used to visit in Banawe. It's good but make sure to eat it while it's hot. 

Poached Sliced Fish in Szechuan Chill Old (less spicy - Php 788) As soon as the bowl was placed on top of the table you can immediately smell the spicy aroma of the spices used. I tried the soup and despite having the level of less spicy I couldn't tolerate it. But I'm certain those who like Samyang noodle challenge will also enjoy this. 

Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken (Php 298) Looking at it you'll think it would be extremely spicy but the crispy chicken itself was mildly hot.

La Mian with Scallion (Php 200) I liked this soup. Flavors were light and the hand-pulled noodle was delicious made.  


DESSERTS
Pan-fried Pancake with Red Bean Paste (Php 168) It's so good! Crispy pancake batter with red bean paste was just delightful. 

Pan-fried Pumpkin Pastry (Php 138) It's fried tikoy with pumpkin taste. 


Paradise Dynasty started a new tradition that whenever they open a new branch they will release new dishes. These are the dishes available only at their Podium branch. It won't be available yet at S Maison, Conrad Seaside Boulevard.

Charcoal Custard Lava Bun - It was good but hoped they used a thinner bun or made it smaller. They could have made the custard creamier. 

Kung Pao Chicken - Sautéed chicken in spicy sauce. 

Crispy-fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk - You have to try this out! It's really good. The salted egg yolk wasn't overpowering and elevated the taste of the prawn


Chilled Baby Spinach with Vermicelli - Refreshing appetizer with spinach and other veggies drizzled with lightly seasoned sauce.

Service was spectacular. Highly recommend visiting this restaurant. They have 2 schedules so make sure to make reservation or call ahead to check for availability.
