Paradise Dynasty is a Chinese restaurant that is similar to Din Tai Fung. There are many locations around the world (I have personally tried ones in Singapore and Hong Kong), and the quality control seems to be really good.
Paradise Dynasty is known for its xiaolongbao (pictured above), which are different from normal ones because they have different flavors such as garlic, truffle, foie gras, etc. Each of the flavors makes the xiaolongbao more rich and tasty, and I enjoyed most of them. In total, they have 8 different flavors (including one original flavor), so there should be something for every type of palette. Also, as you can see above, the colors make for a great picture.
However, Paradise Dynasty also has more than just its xiaolongbao; similar to Din Tai Fung, they have a huge menu with so many different types of Chinese food. Most of the noodle, rice, meat, and vegetable dishes that I tried were all pretty good, so it is not just the dumplings that are good. Be sure to order whatever items you normally get at Chinese restaurants!
I have heard that Paradise Dynasty is trying to expand into more parts of the world, and there are apparently plans to open soon in the US in places such as South Coast Plaza. Hopefully, this means that more people from all over the world will be able to try it. If you ever see a location, I would recommend giving it a chance!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
