Chilli Crab XLB at Paradise Dynasty SM Aura

My favorite Chinese restaurant, Paradise Dynasty, just opened at SM Aura! SM Aura is one of my kids’ favorite malls so this is good news for us. Paradise Dynasty SM Aura is located on the second level across Uniqlo and Cotton On.

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraWhat makes this particular branch special is a unique flavor of Xiao Long Bao which only they offer — Singaporean Chilli Crab Xiao Long Bao!

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraLike the other Paradise Dynasty branches, this one is brightly lit and inviting. Since our helper took the weekend off, we decided to have lunch at Paradise Dynasty SM Aura last Sunday.

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraSingaporean Chilli Crab Xiao Long Bao (P540 for 5 pcs) was the first thing we tried off their menu. It’s really really good — it’s like all the rich flavors and spices of chili crab was somehow compressed into one dumpling.

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraIf you’re averse to spicy food, don’t worry because it’s not too hot. How I regret not being able to avail of their 50% off promo on this dish last November!

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraYes it’s pricey but it’s worth trying at least once. This particular Xiao Long Bao flavor is available only for a limited time, until supplies last. I asked them for the timeframe and they said it should be available until the Chinese New Year (hopefully).

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraAside from the Xiao Long Bao, we had Pork Dumpling in Hot Chilli Vinaigrette (P168). This dish is really great value for money. Paradise Dynasty serves some of the best dimsum and for P168 you get 6 pieces of malaman dumplings… bursting with meat and flavor, yum!

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraWe also had Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Conpoy (P328). This is actually one of the dishes we order on a regular basis. When it’s served, there is a raw egg in the center which the staff will mix.

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraThis is what the mixed dish looks like. We find this to be a comforting, clean-tasting dish that perfectly complements more flavorful fare.

Paradise Dynasty SM AuraWe also tried Stir Fried Prawns in Spicy Bean and Tomato Sauce (P488) for the first time. The prawns are very fresh and tender, I love the combination of spicy bean and tomato. Even the kids enjoyed it!

The place is great and service is good. I’m just happy my favorite Chinese restaurant has another branch we can visit.

Do try to catch the Singaporean Chilli Crab Xiao Long Bao at Paradise Dynasty SM Aura before they’re gone. 🙂
