Friends brought us to Paradise Dynasty, I already saw some of their advertising when roaming in Causeway Bay - their colourful Xiao Long Bao. What I didn’t know was it was a Singaporian restaurant, specialising in Shanghai and Szechuan food. There was a long queue outside the restaurant the day we went.
I ate alone the original Xiao Long Bao (didn’t take any photos), it was better than Din Tai Fung, the pork had more taste with a thin skin. The Bao were hot and soup was good.
Dynasty 8 flavours XLB - since it was sharing with friends, I only tried maybe 2 flavours, pretty good, I couldn’t say the flavours stood out a lot. The centre bao was the original taste.
Pork dumpling with chill sauce - I liked this dish
Braised pork belly la mian - took the photo when the dish was already half eaten by hubby
Steamed chive dumpling
Deep fried diced chicken in Szechuan style - pretty good too
Wok fried Shanghai rice flour cake with meat and preserved vegetable
Pan-fried Shanghai Pork Bun
On the whole, the meal was delicious, since I didn’t expect much, it turned out much better than I thought, especially for the XLB, since I was trying to taste in several places. I think in this Hong Kong trip, it was the best I have eaten. I ate a half a dozen of XLB, I wasn’t very hungry but I tasted most dishes. The Szechuan dishes were good. Happy with the meal. Will be back for their baos!
