Paradise Dynasty

Xiao Long Bao, or pork soup dumplings, originally from Shanghai, are a highly popular Chinese dim sum item the world over. A Singaporeanbased restaurant, Paradise Dynasty, has come up with some innovative variations of xiao long bao dishes. This popular restaurant chain operates outlets across 15 cities in Asia, including three here in Hong Kong.

Its signature dish, xiao long bao, is offered in various types. In addition to Original Plain Xiao Long Bao ($58/6 pcs), you can order the Specialty Xiao Long Bao (HK$98/8 pcs, 8 Flavours: garlic, crab roe, cheese, Szechuan, black truffle, foie gras and ginseng). The different types vary mostly in the way the dumpling skin is made, and each has slightly different textures and aroma.

Its’ not all xiao long bao though, as the restaurant serves other excellent dishes. Well worth trying are Chilled Jellyfish and Seafood in Vinaigrette (HK$72), Scrambled Egg white with Fish and Dried Scallop (HK$82), Deep-Fried Mandarin Fish and Pine Nuts with Fruits (HK$238) which is excellent, and Poached Beef in Szechuan Spicy Soup (HK$188), another popular dish that is very well prepared. We finished our meal with Fried Rice with Stir-fried Crab Roe (HK$128) and Chilled Glutinous Rice Roll with Red Bean Paste topped with Grated Nuts (HK$38/3pcs), as dessert.

With innovative food at very reasonable prices, Paradise Dynasty has carved out a nice niche in Hong Kong’s dining scene. It’s definitely worth a visit. Be sure to book in advance.
