For exquisite Chinese dishes meant for royalty, head to Paradise Dynasty

Dining at Paradise Dynasty, one of Manila’s finest Chinese restaurants, promises a luxurious sensorial experience one can have for every dish is an immersion to the finer points of Chinese culture, particularly the finest from its rich array of culinary delights from its menu.

Paradise Dynasty is all about rediscovering and reinterpreting the forgotten dishes of Northern and Southern China for the modern palate. Its opulent and majestic atmosphere is like traveling back to the Imperial China era and its legendary cuisines. Touted as a world-class restaurant, Paradise Dynasty which is originally from Singapore boasts not only sophistication but also exquisite flavors by marrying tradition and innovation. Truly a definition of what, as they say, is a match made in heaven.

Here are some of Paradise Dynasty’s gastronomic offers starting with the Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao. Eight first-of-its-kind legendary xiao long bao with flavors such as the Original (white), Ginseng (green), Garlic (brown), Black Truffle (black), Cheese (yellow), Crab Roe (orange), Foie Gras (gold), and up to the last flavor which is the spicy Szechuan (red). Recommended to be eaten accordingly by following a clockwise direction to savor the complimenting unique flavors of each dumpling.

The next must-try is the highly recommended Pork Dumplings in Hot Chili Vinaigrette. Expect some vibrancy and intensity from this spicy yet flavorful dumpling, not just because of its name but with the spice sprinkled on top and its red-hot color sauce. Not to worry as it’s only mildly spicy for the not-so-adventurous diner.

To counter the spice, you may want to try Charcoal Custard Lava Bun. This sweet pillow-soft black bun is filled with salted-egg yolk custard and is a visual and taste delight for first-time diners. After all, sweet and spicy starters are best to jumpstart your tastebuds.

Moving on to the main with the Stir-fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce served with Chinese Crepes. Tender pork strips braised in black bean sauce are made as filling for this pocket-like sandwich dish.

Don’t forget to try the unique Szechuan cuisine offers like the crispy bite-size Spicy Szechuan Fried Chicken or the Crispy Fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk. Both dishes can be paired with a bowl of rice such as Egg Fried Rice. Also, a must-try is the Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy.

Chinese cuisine is not complete without noodles and a must-taste is the silky La Mian with Dry Scallion. These hand-pulled noodles are served dry and then poured with a flavorful and clear pork broth that’s light to the taste. And to finish off your meal, take a bite or two of the Chilled Glutinous Rice Roll with Red Bean Paste topped with chopped nuts.

Dine against the backdrop of luxury and opulence with the plush ambiance and imperial court-like setup that intricately adorns the restaurant. But never judge a book by its cover, for Paradise Dynasty truly promises great food with great value in a grand allure perfect for any emperor and empress.—Dexter Francis De Vera.
