It is weird that I have eaten more Xiao Long Bao when I was in the Philippines compared when I arrived here. Believe it or not, earlier was my first time here. There are scattered Din Tai Fung at major malls but I just didn’t care about going in. Maybe, I got used into dining this favorite dimsum when I was still with Rui.
Earlier, Vange and I went to Paradigm Mall at Kelana Jaya. Paradise Dynasty is offering The 8 Legends of Xiao Long Bao. We didn’t order it, why? Because we knew that we would be fighting for the assorted colors/flavors. Ergo, we ordered the original. Besides, I knew it would never disappoint us.
We just couldn’t believe we ordered too much. From the picture below, I even forgot to take a picture of the Sweet and Sour Pork. Hahaha. In order are Fried Noodles, Sliced Pork in Signature Pork Bone Soup and Scallops with Scrambled Eggs.
And guess what? We ordered some more! A bunch of dimsum buns, both cooked steamed and fried. Glutton it was!
By the way, some of the food crew do not speak English. So you have to be patient. They have an awesome ambiance decorated with a big buddha at the middle of the dining area and a flowing water the runs from the statue to the front of the restaurant. The area is softly lit with tungsten pin lights which is somewhat irritating especially when they’re overcrowded across the ceiling. Other than that, the budget per person is about 30 to 40 Ringgits. We just had to pay more than 50 each because we ordered too much.
Oh yes, we ended bringing the half of what we ordered home. Yes, half of what we ordered were leftovers. LOL. Maybe next time, we will go for the assorted flavors.
