MANILA, Philippines – Now open at second floor, S. Maison, Conrad Hotel, Mall of Asia Complex, Paradise Dynasty is a casual dining concept by Paradise Group that dishes up an affordable selection of northern and southern Chinese cuisine in seven restaurants in Singapore, with overseas presence in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

Drawing from his frequent travels in China, Paradise Group CEO Eldwin Chua started Paradise Dynasty as he was inspired by the array of food in the different provinces across China.

“With this new concept, we want to provide diners with a valuable dining experience that comprises affordable food in a mesmerizing setting located at a prime location,” he says.

Innovative array of xiao long bao

Pushing the envelope on culinary creativity and innovation in Chinese cuisine, Paradise Dynasty is proud to present eight first-of-its-kind types of xiao long bao (???) such as black truffle, foie gras, garlic, ginseng, cheese, Szechuan and crab roe.

Not your typical run-of-the-mill varieties, these inventive flavors are created by Chua and the team of chefs after many rounds of tasting and testing. Customers can enjoy these eight tantalizing flavors in a specialty sampling basket with eight pieces.

  1. Original: Enjoy these traditional xiao long bao featuring fresh pork filling in a sweet soup broth.
  2. Ginseng Relish (green): Taste the soothing herbal goodness of this ginseng and pork soup dumpling.
  3. Foie Gras (brown): A touch of French luxury is married perfectly with this traditional Chinese delicacy.
  4. Black Truffle (black): Feast on the unmistakably plush aroma and taste of black truffle in this luxurious treat
  5. Cheese (yellow): A novel combination that features the silkiness of cheese—a sure hit with all ages.
  6. Crab Roe (orange): These morsels are infused with pork and delicate crab roe.
  7. Garlic (gray): A simple twist on the traditional xiao long bao by just adding fragrant garlic.
  8. Szechuan (red): Spice up your palate with the subtle heat from a touch of chilli oil and peppercorn.

Selection of silky handmade la mian

Another highlight of Paradise Dynasty is the wide selection of la mian (hand-pulled noodles) that are expertly made fresh in full view of diners in the open kitchen. A truly comforting staple in Chinese cuisine, these fine and silky threads are then served with an assortment of soups, sauces and ingredients.

Highly recommended are the la mian with sliced pork in signature pork bone soup, la mian with braised pork belly in signature pork bone soup, and the piquant la mian with poached marbled beef in spicy Szechuan soup.

A lot of attention is lavished on the signature stock which uses ingredients like pork bone, pork ribs and whole chicken, and simmered over slow fire for 12 hours before being served.

Shanghai dim sum and comfort food

Equally enticing are the affordable range of Shanghaines dimsum with the likes of the light and flaky radish pastry and pork dumplings with hot chili vinaigrette. The extensive menu also showcases a selection of appetizers that range from chilled assorted eggs loaf in Yang Zhou style to the classic drunken chicken.

Perfect for sharing with friends or family are the variety of wok-fried meat, seafood, vegetable and rice dishes. Definite crowd pleasers include the spicy Szechuan crispy chicken and scrambled egg white with fish and conpoy.

Do leave room for unique desserts like chilled glutinous rice roll topped with grated nuts, pan-fried pancake with red bean paste and glutinous rice dumpling in fermented rice wine.
