    Fancy Chinese sophistication that boasts a colorful aura

    Branded as a world-class restaurant, Paradise Dynasty not only boasts sophistication but also lets customers in for a surreal food experience with their legendary 8 colorful flavors of Xiao Long Bao.

    Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao (Php 388/8pcs)

    Fit for queens and kings, they have created a basket full of colorful and scrumptious soup dumplings bursting with different flavors. Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao has eight flavors, Original (white), Ginseng (green), Garlic (brown), Black Truffle (black), Cheese (yellow), Crab Roe (Orange), Foie Gras, and Szechuan (red). It is recommended that you eat them accordingly, by following a clockwise direction.

    Each soup dumpling has a unique flavor to it and when you reach your fourth, you’ll taste the vibrancy and intensity of the broth. We recommend that you order one basket all to yourself so you’ll be able to try them all. They also offer individual baskets with each of the flavors. You will never go wrong with the classics, try the Signature Original Xiao Long Bao priced at Php 188 for 6 pieces. and Php 298 for 10 pieces.

    Singaporean Chilli Crab Xiao Long Bao

    One of their recent addition is the Singaporean Chili Crab Xiao Long Bao. Once you take a bite of this, you’ll get a taste of the chili broth inside that perfectly complements the flavor of the crab. Another spicy serving here is the dim sum. Try the Pork Dumpling in Hot Chili Vinaigrette. This one, you can tell by not just the name but as well as the spice sprinkled on top and the hot-chili color of its sauce, but it’s not actually too spicy, it has a mild level of spiciness but it may differ to others.

    To lessen the spice, you can also try the Charcoal Custard Lava Bun, a charcoal sweet bun filled with salted-egg yolk custard. It has a perfect sweetness of not too much.

    These Xiao Long Bao and Dimsums are a good appetizing start but if you like a different starter, a healthy plate of Lettuce Roll with Homemade Sesame sauce is what we recommend. You won’t have a problem if you don’t like the bland and bittery taste of greens as the homemade sesame sauce does it magic to add flavor to your lettuce roll.

    Going on to the main dishes, let’s start with giving the usual pork servings a little twist. Get the Stir-fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce served with Chinese Crepes and make yourself some instant and unique pork crepe. The shredded pork strips are soft and chewy and are not so salty.

    For rice meals, if you like spicy you can try the Spicy Szechuan Fried Chicken. These chicken slices are tender and crispy at the same time but are really rich with chili spices so take note of that if your child wants to try it. It is, of course, best paired with their Egg Fried Rice. Partner the chicken and rice with a bowl of vegetable like the Stir-fried French Bean with Minced Pork to get the full pork and vegetable meal.

    What nice way to end a Chinese feast with a little bit of saltiness to set aside the spicy meal you’ve taken, so try the Crispy Fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk. These can be eaten with a bowl of rice, and will actually work as something to munch after all the spiciness.

    For those who don’t wont rice as their main course, try the Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy. At first you might not want the taste of it by the looks of this mushy bowl of egg whites and yolk but this is actually pretty good. You mixed them all together to get a creamy soup like finish.

    For noodles, we recommend the La Mian with Scallion (Dry). This hand-pulled noodles is served dry and then poured with pork broth that’s very light to the taste.

    Now, this one is not really the dessert type dim sum but Radish Pastry can pass of as something you can eat to finish your meal with. Either this or the Charcoal Custard Lava Bun as it both had the good kind of sweet.

    The Legend of Xiao Long Bao extends its reach as Paradise Dynasty also opened its doors at the Level 2 of SM Aura, Taguig for an even wider rich and access to the famed Xiao Long Bao.
