Paradise Dynasty is another chinese restaurant under the management of Boga Group (alongside with Paradise Inn, Ten Ten Tempura, Pepper Lunch, etc), specializing at La Mian and Xiao Long Bao. Their newest branch has opened at Central Park Mall recently, but I haven't got time to try it even though it's just a few steps away from my office. Until I saw their vouchers at Disdus.
There are two kinds of menus sold at Disdus, the halal package and the non-halal package. I bought them both. And also ordered some more dish to accompany the dinner. So this post is a compilation of what we had during our two times dining at Paradise Dynasty.
Steamed Shanghai Chicken Dumpling (IDR 45.000) & 8 Flavored Signature Xiao Long Bao (IDR 88.000)
The 8 Flavored Xiao Long Bao is the signature dish of the restaurant. At the center is the original flavor, and going clockwise from the green one are Ginseng, Crab Roe, Garlic, Cheesy, Szechuan, Black Truffle, and Foie Gras flavor. I like the Original the most, and my second favourite is the Szechuan. Eating this dish for me is a unique experience, since at first we doubted some flavors. But overall it turned out great. Their Shanghai Chicken Dumpling is also a good option for the non pork eater.
La Mian with Sliced Pork in Signature Pork Bone Soup (IDR 55.000) & La Mian with Dried Shrimps and Scallion (IDR 48.000)
La Mian is their other specialty. The noodle is very thin but tasted really good. For me the La Mian with Dried Shrimps and Scallion looks unappetizing, because it's accompanied with no meat (as you probably have known, I'm a devoted meat lovers. And dried shrimps, in my dictionary, doesn't count as meat.). But the seasoning and the soup was unexpectedly great.
Pork Dumpling with Hot Chilli Sauce (IDR 40.000)
It's very oily and hard to pick with my chopsticks, but once you get it, it's worth the effort. Savory and tasty pork filling, wrapped with soft dumpling skin and dipped into spicy sauce. Love it.
Sweet Sour Chicken (IDR 58.000)
Chicken meatballs and that gorgeous sweet sour sauce, I personally really like it. The sauce is tangy and glazy and got a hint of paprika taste, combined with the finely seasoned chicken meatballs.
Sauteed Shrimps Garden Green (IDR 88.000)
Fresh shrimps, but a little lack of seasoning.
Sauteed Spinach (IDR 55.000)
In my opinion, it tasted similar in every chinese restaurant.
Vegetable Spring Rolls (IDR 25.000)
Paradise Dynasty is also offering limited dim sum selection, but this one tasted pretty ordinary.
Red Bean Pancake (IDR 35.000)
Perfect sweetness to neutralize all the savory dishes we've eaten before.
