8 Colorful Flavors of XLB at Paradise Dynasty!

A Singaporean restaurant franchise specializing in modern imperial cuisine with exquisite and approachable flavors from Northern and Southern China. Paradise Dynasty has now 3 branches in Manila - S Maison, The Podium and SM Aura Premier which I visited just recently with my foodie friends. SM Aura branch has this modern Chinese theme and the one in S Maison and the Podium has the Imperial China ambiance. The Podium so far is the biggest branch.

The restaurant is famous for its 8 colorful flavors of Xiao Long Bao which I've been very curious about, but I was surprised that almost most of the dishes served to us are good.

8 flavored Dynasty Xiao Long Bao
It was known as the world's first 8 international flavored Xiao Long Bao. To ensure the optimum tasting of these 8 distinct flavors, you'll be advised to start with the original flavor (the white one in the middle) and end it with the Szechuan Xiao Long Bao (the red one). Other flavors are ginseng, foie gras, black truffle, cheesy, crab roe and garlic. 

Here's the Cheesy Xiao Long Bao and definitely my favorite!
Szechuan Xiao Long Bao
As advised, this should be the last one you eat as it has the strongest flavor and its a bit spicy too. It tasted good and I also like how spicy it is.

Stir Fried Beef with Scallion
Tender slices of beef, cooked in oyster sauce making it rich in flavor and it really goes with fried rice.

Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken
If you love spicy food and chicken, then this one's for you. Chunks of crispy fried chicken served with Szechuan spice, chilis and peanuts.

Crispy Sweet and Sour Pork
I love sweet and sour pork, its my automatic order whenever I visit a Chinese Restaurant. :p Fried to a perfect crisp and cooked in tangy sauce. Good too with fried rice!

Fried Rice in Shanghai Style
A simple plate of Shanghai Fried Rice, but it tastes much better than it looks. It was not oily nor salty, it has a great texture and flavor.

Yang Zhou Fried Rice
Looks like the usual chow fan for me, but its perfectly paired with the Sweet and Sour Pork and Stir Fried Beef with Scallion.

Custard Lava Bun
This one's a MUST try! It has this gooey salted egg yolk custard that oozes out when you bite it.

Pan Fried Shang Hai Pork Bun
The bun skin is slightly crispy from the outside and has a juicy pork filling.

Few shakes that you can enjoy with your sumptuous dish at Paradise Dynasty.

I've always been curious with these colorful Xiao Long Bao's, but I've never had the chance to try it nor visit Paradise Dynasty. I can say that everything that was served to us has its own unique taste and I liked it all. I'd love to go back and try other dishes on their menu and also check out other branches. :)
