Paradise Dynasty’s signature Xiao Long Bao has made it a household name, especially its 8-coloured Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao which was launched with various exciting flavours never-seen-before then.
If it has been a while since you ordered from Paradise Dynasty, now is a good time.
Taste their signature XLBs, La Mian, as well as eight cuisines of China all under one roof: Anhui, Cantonese, Fujian, Hunan, Jiangsu, Shandong, Sichuan and Zhejiang.
Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao 特色皇朝小笼包(八色) ($15.80 for 8 pieces)
These multi-flavoured pork-filled dumplings need little-introduction. As Paradise Dynasty’s most iconic dish, they are coloured using natural ingredients.
Each 25g xiao long bao is a hallmark of precision, pleated with exactly 18 folds.
You will taste 8 flavours in one basket, the signature original, ginseng, foie gras, black truffle, cheese, crab roe, garlic and Szechuan.
To appreciate each flavour, slurp your way from the delicate original up to the bold Szechuan, in that sequence.
Drunken Chicken 李白醉鸡 ($9.80)
This traditional appetiser favourite is made from deboned chicken steamed with scallions, ginger and salt.
What makes the chicken “drunk” is the marinade made from a blend of yellow wine and soy sauce, flavoured with ginger, pepper, and spring oil.
That aromatic liquid seeps into the meat, making its texture moist and gelatinous, and its taste clean and refreshing.
Spinach and Vermicelli tossed with Vinaigrette 春雨拌绿蔬 ($5.00)
Another must-try appetiser, this dish combines chilled baby spinach with Chinese rice noodles, thin strips of carrots and onion.
The tart dressing is a vinaigrette-style blend of light soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, sugar, and salt.
Double-Boiled Chicken Soup 清炖甘榜鸡汤 ($11.50)
A classic soup that’s light and clean-tasting, it has that subtle sweet savoury herbal flavour.
Nourishing mix of traditional Chinese herbs create that broth profile, boiling bone-in chickens for hours.
Another comforting soup to choose would be the Double-boiled Pork Rib with Cabbage Soup.
Crispy Pork Chop 香酥猪扒 ($9.80)
A hit amongst kids and adults alike, this well-loved pork dish is marinated in a flavourful mix of soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil, five spice powder, scallion, ginger and garlic.
The infused meat is then battered and fried ‘til the edges are crispy while inside the meat stays moist. Served sliced for your convenience.
Crispy Sweet and Sour Pork 菠萝咕噜肉 ($13.50)
Next up in the hot dish section are deep-fried pork pieces, stir-fried with chunks of red and green bell peppers, carrots, onions, and sliced pineapples.
Together they are slathered in sweet and sour, well-balanced mix of sugar and rice vinegar.
La Mian in Hot and Sour Soup 酸辣海鲜汤拉面 ($9.50)
La Mian or hand-pulled noodles are a comforting staple in this restaurant. They are expertly prepared, shaped into fine and silky threads, and served with a classic soup base or dry.
Some of the popular choices here include La Mian with Sliced Kurobuta Pork in Signature Pork Bone Soup, La Mian with Double-boiled Chicken Soup, and La Mian with Pork Dumpling in Hot Chilli Vinaigrette.
If you love that bit of spiciness and tanginess, with substantial portion, then go for the La Mian in Hot and Sour Soup.
Chockful of ingredients, this thick soup features Chinese mushrooms, thinly sliced soft bean curd, shredded bamboo shoots, ginger, garlic, beaten egg, light soya sauce and sesame oil. A splash of black vinegar is added for that sour element.
Stir-fried Noodle with Shredded Pork 木樨肉炒拉面 ($12.30)
Another la mian dish at Paradise Dynasty is their stir-fried version mixed with shredded pork. Rich in umami for its soya-flavoured sauce, this noodle dish also contains finely shredded black wood ear fungus.
Fried Rice in Shanghai Style 上海炒饭 ($12.80)
One of Paradise Dynasty’s all-time best-selling dish, this Shanghai-style dish features a medley of shrimp, minced pork and chopped kai lan, all tossed and wok-fried with fluffy grains of rice.
A simple yet aromatic dish that will delight your senses, and pair well with almost any dish.
Fragrant Layered Cake Chinese Style 千层油糕 ($4.80 for 3 pieces)
A famous snack during the Qing Dynasty, these Chinese-style layered cakes are prepared steamed. You get 3 pieces of these diamond-shaped warm, soft and fluffy 千层油糕, which literally means “thousands of oil cakes”. Actually, there are 64 layers if you dare to count.
