Paradise Dynasty, Singapore

I first heard about Paradise Dynasty whilst in meetings. My fellow colleagues claim that it was better than Din Tai Fung and what is this colourful xiao long bao they were talking about? I had to go and check it out myself! When I told ‘The Mother’ he couldn’t believe it as he is a Din Tai Fung FAN!

Paradise Dynasty has been around for a while now, and is one of the newer ventures of the Taste Paradise Group and is located on Ion Orchard on level 4. Unfortunately you can’t make a reservation but thankfully we didn’t have to wait for long. We opted to sit outside and at the time we thought it was a great idea but the humidity got to us all including Dragon!

The menu is vast, and quite similar to Din Tai Fung. They also have 18 different types of silky handmade La Mian as well as Shanghainese dim sum, hot and cold appetisers and a variety of fried meat, seafood, vegetables and rice dishes.

We couldn’t go past the 8 different colours of Xiao Long Bao. The flavours are original, garlic, ginseng, foie gras, black truffle, cheese, crab roe and Szechuan. We got two servings of this, we just couldn’t resist. I tried the cheese, ginseng and Szechuan and my goodness – they were fantastic!! I loved the cheese and Szechuan dumplings!

These pan fried pork and vegetables dumplings were seriously tasty.

I love these hazardous dumplings – juicy and the bun was soft and fluffy.

P1200536

I couldn’t go past the cold tofu which was seriously silky and the thousand year old egg was a wonderful complement.

Not to mention these braised pork belly! Oh my – look how they glistened! Tender and succulent.

P1200540

The water spinach vegetables were simple but excellent.

P1200541

The fried rice had a really nice aroma and flavour.

P1200542

One of the la mians. From memory, these were minced pork with a hint of chili and they were wonderful, full of flavours.

Service efficient and food delicious!

Verdict? The xiao long bau were DEFINITELY and infinitely better than Din Tai Fung! I can’t wait to go back and try more dishes! If you were wondering how many people were eating at this lunch? Only four! Yes we ordered a lot and they were worth it!
