Paradise Dynasty Brings You to a Dining Paradise


Paradise Dynasty - Legend of Xiao Long Bao at The Podium MallWhen dining out and I’m savoring one dishes after the another, I know I’m in sort of a paradise. And that’s exactly my experience at Paradise Dynasty at The Podium Mall when I was invited to a food tasting. As dishes were served from dim sums, appetizers, cold and hot dishes, I really enjoyed eating.

With quality ingredients cooked beautifully, the Chinese restaurant is worthy of visit over and over again. It’s a good thing they now have a 2nd branch in the middle of the metro. Their first branch was at S Maison at the Conrad Hotel in Mall of Asia Complex, and I learned that they will open soon at the SM Aura Premiere.

The restaurant highlights its legendary 8 colorful flavors of Xiao Long Bao. But Paradise Dynasty has a lot to offer to foodies like me. Let me share with you my recommended dishes.

Charcoal Custard Lava Bun (Php188)

Charcoal Custard Lava Bun (Php188)

Charcoal Custard Lava Bun has Salted Egg fillingFirst on the list is Charcoal Custard Lava Bun, which happens to be one of the new items on the menu. It’s looks sophisticated with it’s shiny, silky appearance. And when you bite into the soft bun comes a golden yellow custard made of salted egg which makes the dish even more beautiful. It’s a surprising dish because although there’s salted egg in the filling, the salty flavor is not there. Instead there’s the creamy sweetness that plays well with the bun.

Of course, the Legendary Signature 8 International Flavoured Xiao Long Bao should be on the list. It would be foolish not to as this is the famous dish that everyone is talking about at Paradise Dynasty. An order consists of 8 pieces of Xiao Long Bao in different colors representing a different flavors: Original (white), Ginseng (green), Foie Gras (off white), Black Truffle (black), Cheesy (yellow), Crab Roe (orange), Garlic (grey), and Szechuan (red).

One basket is meant for one person, allowing you to try all flavors and then pick the ones that you’ll like. You can actually have an order of your favorite flavor. Because it’s a food tasting, all the guests had to share the dishes. I was able to taste the original and crab roe flavors. Will definitely go back for the other flavors.

What I love about the restaurant’s Xiao Long Bao is that the bun doesn’t break easily unlike other restaurant with the same offering. I was able to savor everything, from the flavorful soup to the delicious filling. And the soup was very generous that I got to enjoy it when it oozed out as I poked a hole in the bun. There was plenty of soup remaining inside that I was able to really enjoy it when I ate the entire dumpling.

Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette (Php328)

Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette (Php328)

From the warm and comforting Xiao Long Bao, I moved to Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette. I wasn’t really paying attention to what I was eating, and so I thought the jellyfish were noodles because it’s long and firm to the bite. It’s a really refreshing treat.

Pork Dumpling with Hot Chili Vinagirette (Php168)

Another good eat is the Pork Dumpling with Hot Chili Vinaigrette. The meat is tender and the chili sauce is equally delightful.

Chilled Baby Spinach with Vermicelli (Php288)

One of the dishes that I had more than one serving is the Chilled Baby Spinach with Vermicelli. I really enjoyed the texture of the spinach and vermicelli in my mouth.

Lettuce Roll with Homemade Sesame Sauce (Php238)

Lettuce Roll with Homemade Sesame Sauce (Php238)

Probably everybody’s favorite in our group is the Lettuce Roll with Homemade Sesame Sauce. I love the crisp greens with cucumber strips in between. I honestly didn’t expect to like it at all because it looked so simple. I found myself grabbing one several times throughout the food tasting.

Steamed Glutinous Rice Stuffed in Red Dates (Php238)

Steamed Glutinous Rice Stuffed in Red Dates (Php238)

I also liked Steamed Glutinous Rice Stuffed in Red Dates. It’s sweet, chewy, and interesting you’d think this is a dessert, but it’s not.

Kung Pao Chicken (Php298)

Kung Pao Chicken is slightly spicy but really delicious.

Crispy-fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk (Php588)

Crispy-fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk (Php588)

One of the dishes that I’ll definitely order next time I visit Paradise Dynasty is Crispy-fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk. It’s crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. I like that the prawns are evenly coated with the salted egg yolk flavor. And again, it’s not salty but rather has that light texture in my mouth.

Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy (Php328)

Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy (Php328)

Another surprising dish is Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy. I was not drawn to it when it was served, but gave it a go for the sake of tasting it. I ended up scooping more than once on my plate.

Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken (Php298)

Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken (Php298)

I love spicy dishes and so I enjoyed Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken. I like that the chunks of chicken are crispy, and the peanuts added a layer of flavor that made it more enjoyable.

And finally, the dish that others feared is the Poached Sliced Fish in Szechuan Chili Oil. I guess that’ll be your reaction when you’re not fond of spicy food and you see chilis floating in a huge bowl of soup. I didn’t mind really, because I’m used to spicy dishes.

I love it! I love the fish, the flavor, and the spice which eventually lingers in your mouth for a few minutes. What I love is that despite the heat, I can still taste everything, including the flavor of chili. If you’re not fond of spicy dishes, you can actually order the dish in it’s mildest spice.

Cold Water Chestnut Drink (Php80)

In between bites I sipped on my cold Water Chestnut drink.
