CNY 2016: Paradise Dynasty @ Vivocity

DSC_9171

Finding a place for CNY gatherings is usually difficult when it comes to big groups and worse when they restrict to just festive menus. My gang of almost 20 were lucky to nab tables at Paradise Dynasty that also offered the option of ordering from the ala carte menu.

One main grouse, my table of 8 had 4 plates of steamed nuts served. Did they over order for the season?

The mandatory yusheng which was thankfully my very last. No more, no more please!

Spot the baby abalones used here and this fitted all 20 of us, children too.

The mess thereafter, one that resulted in wastage and a bunch of very happy adults. Twas a decent yusheng with innovative use of baby abalones which makes it child friendly too.

We rejoiced over the ala carte menu way too early because there were a ton of choices not available so I ended up with a spicy la mian that came with soggy noodles and a less than satisfying ordeal.

At least my cheese xiaolongbaos saved my day.

A ton of mozzarella does the trick for stringy cheese moments! A pity the skin hardened way too fast, we ended up with stiff dumplings towards the end.

These salt and pepper ribs were really quite good, despite the insane crowds.

Stir fried vegetables to round things up.

This ended up being one of the most affordable meals during CNY, works well with member rebates too. Still one of those places to go with a reservation.
