Paradise Dynasty has been one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. I've been here a couple of times with my family and friends and recently, we have been invited to a foodie meetup in their Podium branch. In this post, I'll be sharing a compilation of all the dishes that I have tried at Paradise Dynasty.

Paradise Dynasty, a concept originated from Singapore captures the finer points of bygone eras in contemporary style. I like how the ambiance is very classy, the place is well-lit, and even the tableware shows elegance with its golden color.
Be awed by the experience, the refreshing take on delicacies and the dragon's impeccable presence at Paradise Dynasty. Paradise Dynasty's new branch in Manila is in the new Podium Mall (2/F), ADB Avenue, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City.
Immerse in the imperial culture and savor the exquisite flavors from the northern and southern China at Paradise Dynasty. 
Sharing about the dishes I've tried: 
Xiao Long Bao. One of the best XLBs that I've had. 
The world's first 8 international flavored xiao long bao. To ensure the optimum tasting of these 8 distinct flavors, you start from the original flavor in this sequence: original, ginseng, foie gras, black truffle, cheesy, crab roe, garlic, and end it with the Szechuan flavor.  
My favorite flavor would be the foie gras xiao long bao. 
Charcoal Custard Lava Bun. Because white custard buns are boring. 
Vegetable and Pork Wanton in Signature Pork Bone Soup. The pork wanton is good but it's the soup that I find addicting--it's really good.
Chinese Bun (Deep-Fried). Just plain, deep-fried bread, that tastes so good when dipped in condensed milk. 
Radish Pastry. I'm not really a fan of radish but a friend made me try this out. It's surprisingly really good. 
Pork Dumpling in Hot Chili Vinaigrette. One thing that I have noticed about Paradise Dynasty is that they have a lot of spicy dishes to offer. They offer a selection of Szechuan cuisine which is usually spicy. This is the first among many in this post.
Lettuce Roll with Homemade Sesame Sauce. A healthy option. Can also work as a palate cleanser or something to balance with the other savory and spicy dishes of Paradise Dynasty.
Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette. It's either you like it or not because it's jellyfish. I like it. 
Chilled Tofu with Century Egg. The texture of their tofu is silken and it goes well with the century egg for flavor. 
Steamed Glutinous Rice in Red Dates. It's a tasty treat if you like dates.
Chilled Baby Spinach with Vermicelli. More greens to balance with the meat orders. 
Stir-fried French Bean with Minced Pork. More vegetables and some meat.
Kung Pao Chicken. The chicken is mostly white meat. I like the cashews in this dish. 
Stir-Fried Beef with Scallion. Savory good and tender. Would go well with rice since it's also well-seasoned.
Stir-Fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce served with Chinese Crepes. Roll it in the crepes and you've got a good treat.
Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy. This is one of my top picks among their dishes. I love the taste and the creaminess in this dish. To enjoy this better, beat the egg yolk and have a spoonful of this. Yum! 
Crispy-fried Crystal Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk. A favorite pick. I love the salted egg flavor that coats these succulent prawns. I can have this all to myself. 
Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken. Just look at the amount of Szechuan pepper in this dish. 
Crispy Sweet and Sour Pork. Sweet and sour pork is an all-time Chinese food favorite of mine. I would always order this whenever I would go to Chinese restaurants. I'm glad that their crispy sweet and sour pork did not disappoint. 
La Mian and Signature Pork Bone Soup. With a history of over 400 years, La Mian or Hand-Pulled Noodles originated from China as a local street delight before it was bestowed a culinary title of Dragon Beard Noodles by a Ming Dynasty emperor who was impressed by the grace and majestic hand-pulling skill. To complement this heavenly dish, Paradise Dynasty concocts a signature pork bone soup broth to further enhance a multi-sensory experience of taste and texture. Unlike the usual clear chicken soup, the signature pork bone soup is dense due to a high content of protein and collagen. Simmered under slow fire for twelve hours, the soup content is reduced from an initial 30kg to 8kg to bring out the essence of the ingredients. 
The soup is really rich in flavor and dense. A small amount of it, mixed with the noodles would already suffice. 
Poached Sliced Fish in Szechuan Chili Oil. For this dish, you can choose between three levels of spiciness (less spicy, spicy, and very spicy). For a numbing sensation, try the sliced fish cooked in Szechuan spicy soup with peppercorns and assorted chilis. If you are into that hot, "whew" feeling when eating spicy dishes, then you gotta try this. 
Pan-Fried Pumpkin Pastry. If you are not into sweet stuff, then this would be a good dessert to cap off your meal. 
Pan-Fried Pancake with Red Bean Paste. Another option that's good to try if for dessert. 
Chilled Mango Pudding. I'm all about mango so this is my top pick among their desserts. 
Chilled Aloe Vera and Osmanthus Jelly in Honey Lemon Juice. Cold, sweet yet a bit tangy. My attention has already been on the mango pudding. But if you are into healthy eating, then I would recommend this for you. Aloe vera has antioxidant and antibacterial properties, lowers blood sugar, and other health benefits. *wink*
