Singapore might be known for many things, but nothing stands out quite as much as her colourful food scene. With flavours borrowed from our global neighbours, we have a variety of food options packed within our little red dot. Adding to the diversity is Paradise Group and their arm of Chinese culinary concepts. From Canton Paradise’s classic cantonese fare, to the nourishing soup bases of Beauty in the Pot, explore the familiar taste of oriental cooking in all of its colourful variants.
But those who are members of Paradise Gourmet Rewards (PGR) – a loyalty scheme that reward members when they dine at participating Paradise Group restaurants – should already be well acquainted with what Paradise group has to offer. What they might not know is that from right now, PGR has a slew of member-exclusive discounts to celebrate their 6th anniversary, making it even more attractive to dine at their exciting host of restaurants. What’s more, members who pay with Maybank Cards will receive an additional 2.5% worth of rebates.
We reckon that there’s no better way to start your day, or spend a lazy afternoon, than warming your tummy with some piping hot dim sum. Canton Paradise serves up all the Hong Kong classics such as egg tarts, siew mai, and milk tea.
But none will steal your heart like the Steamed Molten Salted Egg Yolk Custard Piggy Bun ($6.80 for 3pcs), which tastes as good as it looks. We also liked the BBQ Combination (3 Varieties) ($28.80) of BBQ Pork Belly with Honey Sauce, Crackling Pork Belly, and Crispy Roasted Irish Duck, which came in generous cuts of the perfect meat-to-fat ratio. Others like their Crispy BBQ Honey Pork Bun ($6.80 for 3pcs), silky smooth Handmade Meatball Congee ($9.80), and Signature Canton Jumbo Prawn Wanton Noodle ($11.80 with 4pcs) should not be missed as well. Their family-friendly menu makes Canton Paradise a great place to bring your loved ones. From now, PGR members can enjoy 40% off dim sum, congee, and noodles (excluding noodles with roast items) on weekdays from 3pm to 5pm.

Indulge in a seafood feast at Seafood Paradise, without having to worry about getting your hands dirty.
Here, you can safely wrestle that last piece of juicy meat out from their Signature Creamy Butter Crab (seasonal price) or the Singapore-style Chilli Crab (seasonal price) without collateral damage – thanks to the plastic gloves and bibs provided. You cannot miss the quintessential Mantou ($3.50 for 4 pcs) to soak up every last bit of that milky-buttery sauce (no prizes for guessing our favourite crab dish).
But whatever you do, remember to save some space for the Crispy Kang Kong Topped With Cuttlefish In Homemade Seafood Sauce ($16.80). The spicy kick from the tasty sauce is the perfect complement to the crunchy leaves and tender cuttlefish chucks, and we are confident that this dish will win over the vegetable-haters out there.

For flavours a little closer to home, head to Paradise Classic for their nanyang-style dishes. Seek comfort in their Double-boiled Chicken Soup With Chinese Herbs ($24.80), which is a soothing herbal elixir that’s great for the body. For mains, their Stewed Silver Needle Noodle With Salted Fish In Claypot ($13.80) will not disappoint. It has a bright citrus note from the salted fish and lime sauce, with a medley of textures from ingredients suspended in a luscious sauce.

If noodles are your preferred choice of carbs, then LeNu is a noodle bar that will satisfy your cravings. The chef recommended Spicy Japanese Scallop Dry Noodle ($9.90) is a hot favourite, with its fiery punch and tangy sauce that will have you coming back for more.
Those who prefer soup-based noodles will be delighted by LeNu’s two signature broth: the collagen-rich pork bone broth, or the hearty braised beef broth. Try the Braised Pork Rib With Scallion Noodle ($10.90), with chopstick-tender marinated meat and a lip-smacking soup base, or the Braised Beef Combination Noodle (Premium Beef, Tendon, Shank) ($15.90).
The quality ingredients in this bowl make it well worth the buck. Even better news? LeNu has a Happy Teatime promotion from 3pm to 5pm on weekdays, where all their noodles are 30% off. And with no GST, this is one promotion that non-PGR members can also enjoy.

Beauty In The Pot
If you are what you eat, then dining at Beauty In The Pot should be on everyone’s must-eat list. Known for their Beauty Collagen Broth, eight hours of work goes into concocting this rich milky potion filled with all the collagen to keep you looking fine and youthful.
But don’t just limit yourself to one soup base – go for the quart pot to enjoy four of their wholesome broths, such as the Spicy Nourishing Broth made from pork bones, Cooling Coconut Broth, and the Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth. There is a mild sweetness from the coconut broth that makes it a great base for Live Drunken Prawns ($24 for 300g) and other vegetables.
However, you will want to save the spicy nourishing soup for the Fried Beancurd Skin ($9.80) (it soaks up all of the tongue-numbing soup) and Specialty Meat Platter ($36.80) which features premium cuts of US beef and Kurobuta pork.
For the best result, set the seafood items such as the Signature Handmade Fish Tofu ($1.80 per pc), Ebiko Prawn Paste ($17.80) and Sliced Toman Fish ($8/$16) into the collagen broth.
