Anyone who's been visiting my blog for the last few years would know that I am a TRUE BLUE fan of Paradise Dynasty. The Special Dynasty Xiao Long Bao is just a favorite of mine and my siblings. From this set, my ultimate is the Black Truffle, Foie Gras, and Crab Roe.
However, it seems that Paradise is not yet done with us because they just released 4 new dishes and we were lucky enough (yes, LUCKYYYYYY!) to have been invited to try it out.
The first dish we had was the 𝗗𝗲𝗲𝗽-𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗗𝘂𝗰𝗸 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗺𝗲𝗱 𝗕𝘂𝗻𝘀 (𝗣𝟭,𝟮𝟴𝟴) which was my absolute favorite among the 4 dishes we tried. I could eat it with the buns and I could eat the duck with rice and it tasted just as good. The crispiness of the duck meat and skin was just SOOO GOOD. Seriously.
This would be the one dish that I would order again and again given the chance.
The 𝗚𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗣𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗡𝘂𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗙𝗿𝘂𝗶𝘁𝘀 (𝗣𝟭,𝟮𝟴𝟴) is a sweet & sour lapu-lapu. I felt that this had too much sweet and sour sauce and it would have been better having the sauce on the side. The taste though is another thing. It was actually really good. Again, paired with rice and it's amazing.
The Grilled Grouper with Tofu in Mapo Tofu Style (P1,288) was spicy but in a good way. You know how there are spicy foods that make you not want to eat anymore but there's also a spicy food that just increases your appetite? This one is the latter. It was spicy but spicy good, not spicy bad.
The 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗵𝗮𝗶-𝗦𝘁𝘆𝗹𝗲 𝗕𝗿𝗮𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗣𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗕𝗲𝗹𝗹𝘆 (𝗣𝟱𝟴𝟴) is for all pork lovers. For me, I liked the meat part, not so much the fat because I'm just not a fan of fat. What I did was take out the fat and combined this with rice. PERFECT.
I brought my sister with me and we had a lot of fun trying out the dishes. We also had the Charcoal Buns with Salted Egg Sauce which she loved.
Right now, there are only 2 branches of Paradise Dynasty. One is located at S Maison and the other one is in Podium. The great news is they are opening a 3rd branch in SM Aura! YAASSSS!
October 26 is the date so mark your calendars because Paradise Dynasty is invading SM Aura. BURP.
