With the interior of the place we felt like we transported back to the time of imperial China. The place looked really elegant from every angle without being intimidating. The servers and managers were super hospitable. They entertained every question and request with a smile. The open kitchen made us even more excited to devour different kinds of Xiao Long Bao, dim sum, noodles, and other savory dishes that they have. Good thing we were pretty hungry when we visited Paradise Dynasty!

Let the EATING begin!

Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao (8 flavors)
Php 388

Of course, we started our Paradise Dynasty EATSperience with Xiao Long Bao. Yes, those dumplings with meat and soup inside. At Paradise Dynasty, they have 8 flavors of it. Yes, 8 different colorful Xiao Long Baos with different flavors. The 8 flavors are: Signature Original (white), Szechuan (red), Garlic (gray), Cheese (yellow), Foie Gras (brown), Ginseng (green), Crab Roe (orange), and Black Truffle (black). We were able to try all except the Ginseng and our favorites were Cheese – creamy, Szechuan – spicy peppery, Black Truffle – fragrant and rich, and the Signature Original – nothing beats the original.

One of the best dim sum creations we have ever had! Lovely flaky pastry with hashbrown-like radish inside. Super tasty and savory! We could have had 2, 3, or even 4 servings of this! πŸ˜€

Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette
Php 328

This one was quite different from the plain old jellyfish alongside roasted pork and chicken. In this dish, the jellyfish was truly the star. Its sweetness and saltiness provided a great balance of flavors to the spicy and sour vinaigrette.

Steamed Egg White and Fish and Conpoy (dried scallop)
Php 328

If you love crab meat but cannot have it, then this dish is the perfect alternative! The egg white, fish and conpoy trio made this dish taste and feel like crab meat. As one of their managers told us, this dish was made by one of the cooks for the emperor when there was a shortage in crab meat. It turned out to be a great experiment, the emperor loved it and the rest is history.

Stir-fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce
Php 288

This pork dish was great because of the tender shreds of pork that almost looked like noodles and the freshly-made soft crepes. This was one of the dishes that our baby tried too and of course, she enjoyed it.

Another one of those simple yet extremely delicious dishes! We could probably eat this on its own because it was extraordinarily awesome. If you have tried this, then you will understand why we’re so crazy about it. Don’t worry, this goes well with almost anything! A must-try.

Sweet and Sour Fish
Php 328

We instantly fell in love with both sweet and sour dishes on our first bite. The crispy and tender pork and fish absorbed the sauce really well. Every bite had great balance of sweet and tangy flavors.Β It will surely be hard to choose between these two sweet and sour dishes when we return to Paradise Dynasty.

Stir-fried Beef with Scallion

Fragrant and tender beef slices drenched in a sweet and peppery sauce. This dish reminded us of the famous noodle dish called Beef Ho Fan because it has similar aroma and flavor.Β

After that sumptuous feast, these 2 desserts sealed the deal. Soft and chewy rice balls and crisp and light crispy pancake. Both were delicious and not too sweet, which we really liked.
