Paradise Dynasty Favorites and Chili Crab Xiao Long Bao!

It's hard not to love restaurants thats serves great food and one such restaurant that my family always love going back to is Paradise Dynasty. Of course, it is famous for its 8-flavor xiao long bao but really, every thing on the menu is equally delish and that makes it a bit difficult to really choose a specific favorite.



Currently though, we can't seem to skip ordering the Original Xiao Long Bao, the Steam Glutinous Rice Stuff in Dates and the Radish Puff Pastry.


These are the lightest and non-greasy radish puff pastry that I have eaten. It doesn't even have that weird taste of radish cake. Even those who hate eating radish will enjoy this radish puff.


Crispy Fried Crystal Prawns Tossed in Salted Egg Yolk, a very long name but hard not to fall in-love with this dish. The prawns are also surprisingly juicy even if its fried.


Spicy Pork Wontons is another current favorite since I am into spicy food. Preparing myself for spicy food marathon soon. ;)


It might look weird because the Charcoal Custard Lava Bun is black but looks can be deceiving. Best to eat this a few minutes after it lands on the table since the custard lava is still lava-ish. Be careful though because it can burn your tongue.


The Chili Crab Xiao Long is a new favorite although it is only available at the SM Aura Premiere branch. It may be far but this flavor is definitely worth the long drive. Chili Crab Xiao Long Bao pays homage to the Singaporean favorite Chili Crab but this is only available on a limited time.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
