Paradise Inn @ Sunway PyramidFriday, March 02, 2012
"Old charm with contemporary twist"
Set against a concept that transcends you back to ancient China while wavering between old charm and contemporary Oriental ambience is the all-new Paradise Inn restaurant at Sunway Pyramid.
Inns that were once an integral part of Chinese folk life now lives on as Paradise Inn takes on the role of a restaurant, teahouse and dessert house all in one.
The grand arch entrance to the restaurant would certainly stop anybody in their tracks. It leads guests into a spacious dining area adorned with beautifully tailor made Chinese lanterns from China that are suspended from a ceiling that somewhat resembles a silhouette of a dragon. The rustic terracotta bricked walls are framed by mirror panels with jade hued Chinese symbols that are inspired by the teahouse concept of yesteryears.
Fitting at least 180 guests at any one time, Paradise Inn also comes equipped with two mid-casual VIP rooms that can comfortably accommodate ten persons each – it is good for corporate discussion as well as gatherings of family and friends. Additionally, ten private booths are created within the main dining area offering diners with more privacy while they enjoy their meals.
According to Ms. Elyna Tan, CEO of Paradise (F&B) Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Paradise Inn is the perfect place for you to get the best of dining in elements of both old and new – at one hand you have classic, traditional cuisine, and the other hand, you experience a contemporary Oriental setting.
“We pay a great deal of attention to our food. Even though they are classic dishes, our chefs are also encouraged to innovate and re-create, giving them new dimension relevant with times” Tan added.
I ordered a pot of flower tea which consist various type of dried flowers - forget me not, rose, dried longan & chrysanthemum - RM6.80 per person. It has a good detox agent, lowers blood pressure and has calming effects which really suitable to all the ladies.
Did you realize the design of the
mini cup? It's aim to prevent the heat goes over the cup when you holding it. What a really an innovative & creative design.
Sliced Tea-smoked Duck - RM12.90
The combination of fatty part together with the bottom layer of the sliced tea-smoked duck worked well together. Since this is one of the appetizer that highlighted by them, why not give it a try?
Crisp-fried Fish with Preserved Bean Paste - RM12.90
It doesn't taste weird although it is a combination of fish with bean paste. Compared to the sliced tea-smoked duck, I personally like this very much. The skin is crispy and the fish remained warm when they served it.
Crisp-Fried Crystal Prawns in Wasabi Mayo Sauce - RM29.90
Wasabi has not always been my favourite. Surprisingly, it taste really delicious and appetizing. Taste of the wasabi wasn't that strong, the prawns were also coated with mango and tobiko. Recommended!!
Crisp-Fried Crystal Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk - RM29.90
This is also one of my favourite as it's really appetizing as well.
Poached Chinese Spinach with Egg Trio and Minced Pork in Superior Stock - RM16
Coffee Pork Ribs - RM19.90
The coffee was at the right amount and it just taste perfect. I'm a coffee lover thus I will definitely give it a try and it didn't disappointed me so far.
Supreme Seafood Fried Rice - RM19.90
Stewed Eggplant with Minced Pork and Salted Fish in Claypot - RM16
The reason that I like Chinese foods so much because they have varieties of choices and many of 'em are my favourite. Stewed eggplant is one of my top choice and favourite in Chinese cuisin. Anyway, I found out that many people don't really like to eat eggplant but they said this is really delicious after they try it. YES! The fragrant of the eggplant is just awesome and it was cooked to perfection and soft to chew. Highly recommended by me!
Stewed Pork Belly served with Lotus Bun - RM4.80 per piece
This is everyone's favourite and serve with the bun. How's the taste? Since I don't eat oily and fat part, thus I didn't give it a try. Anyway, I think it taste good as this dish was finished in a mere moment.
Crisp-Fried Shrimp Paste Chicken - RM18
A very simple dishes, but just taste good.
Braised Vermicelli with Pork Trotters - RM19.90
Braised Tofu with Crystal Prawns - RM25
