WEEKEND EATS: Indulge In Chinese Food, Enjoy Endless Cocktails, And Stock Up On Wines For The Weekend
New Dishes at Paradise Dynasty
2/F The Podium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong
The land of the most colorful selections of xiao long bao has a new dynasty of flavors on its menu.
For diners who are looking for something indulgent, Paradise Dynasty’s Shanghai Style Braised Pork Belly is your dish, served with crunchy green bok choy. Drown your rice with the thick, sweet sauce for an extra savory hit to your meal. The pork belly is so tender that you can cut it effortlessly using your chopsticks.
If the classic Chinese sweet and sour flavor is what you’re looking for, then you should try the new Grouper with Pine Nuts and Fruits. This vibrant dish that’s good for sharing is light but strong on flavor. The grouper is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Best paired with rice, this dish offers tangy fruit bites, plus a touch of crunch in the pine nuts, to fill you up in an instant.
For a spicy take on grouper, you can try the Grilled Grouper with Tofu in Mapo Tofu Style. Served hot with generous chunks of tofu, this dish is Paradise Dynasty’s own take on the traditional spice-intense cooking of Szechuan province. But you can request the staff to tame the dish for you if you don’t like it too spicy.
For more details on their new offerings, check out Paradise Dynasty's official website.
