Paradise Dynasty now on its 3rd year in the Philippines!



“Feast on International Flavored Xiao Long Bao and Chef’s Chinese Specialties” 


With its long and deep history, Chinese cuisine is truly an integral part of the Chinese culture. Unbeknownst to many, it is not just one distinct cuisine, but comprised of different regional styles of cooking. In Paradise Dynasty, diners will get a glimpse of the Imperial culture through its featured specialty dishes from the northern and southern parts of China.


A casual dining concept that originated from Singapore, it was first brought to the Philippines by the Paradise Group on November 9, 2016, and currently has three locations around the metro, apart from its regional branches in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan.


The inspiration behind putting a local outpost came from the travels of bon vivant and CEO of the Paradise Group, Mr. Eldwin Chua, who took his palate to a gastronomic adventure across this East Asian country.

EASY BAON IDEAS WITH SWIFT MIGHTY MEATY CHICKEN CHEESE FRANKS





     Being a father means having to be more aware of the food that my daughter Rain eats. Though she’s nowhere near as picky as her father, she does have certain favorites that she likes to stick to. One of those favorites just happens to be Swift Mighty Meat Cheese Franks! 

    So it’s wonderful that we have those good old faithful hotdogs to use as her baon for school, but making it more interesting for her to eat is the bigger challenge! 

    Here are some easy Baon Tips using  Swift Mighty Meaty Cheese Franks for kids Baons that you can make at home!



        It’s easy to see why she loves these Cheesey Franks so much! The meatiness is undeniable and they’re incredibly flavorful even on its own.


                But its how the hotdogs are packed with cheesy goodness that Rain absolutely can’t get enough of!  

BAON TIP #1: MIGHTY MEATY CHEESY SLIDERS



           Take a Mighty Meaty Cheesy Frank and place it in between Freshly Toasted Pan De Sals or mini buns, drizzle a little bit of Mayonnaise, Ketchup, and Cheese Sauce for extra awesomeness and viola! You’ve got yourself a delicious treat!  



          Because of traffic, Rain’s bus brings her to school around an hour before her school starts, so we make sure to pack at least two sliders for her in case she wants something for breakfast! Light enough so she doesn’t feel to heavy after eating it, but filling enough to give her enough energy until recess!   

BAON TIP #2: CHICKEN FRANKS PASTA 


Rain loves noodles, so we decided to jazz up some of her favorite Spaghetti with Mighty Meaty Cheese Franks! 



We simply take the classic Spaghetti with tomato sauce that Rain can’t get enough of, and top it with delicious slices of Chicken Cheese Franks. 



            The combination of the Chicken Franks and Spaghetti makes for a great in-between meal that Rain can enjoy during her recess, that is incredibly easy to prepare! 

BAON TIP #3: MIGHTY MEATY CHEESY SLIDERS



         For her lunch, Rina decided to get a little creative. She takes one of the Franks and slices it in half, and then continues to slice it right down the middle reminiscent of a pizza, making sure not to slice the hotdog all the way. 



           Rina then fries the hotdogs, making sure to cook them upright so they stand so it looks like.... You guessed it.. A little octopus! 



        Rina made sure to egg some scrambled egg over a bed of rice for added design (Not to mention Rain loves Eggs!), and tops it with the sliced franks, making it look like a family of octopuses swimming in the sea! 



Rain was totally surprised to see what her mom prepared for her.. And as you can tell.. She loved it! Funnily enough, at first she said it was, “Too Cute To Eat!”, but once she took one bite of the Chicken Cheese Frank, she devoured it immediately!




             With it’s meaty flavor profile and cheesy goodness, Swift’s Mighty Meaty Chicken Cheese Frank is a kid’s favorite that is incredibly diverse and can be used in so many creative ways, especially for your child’s baon! You’re bound to find a way to prepare it that will please even the Pickiest of Eaters!

THE CHOICE 2019!





THE CHOICE 2019
Our Awesome Planet and The KTG presents The Choice!!!


The Choice Year V

We’re now in a Golden Age of Philippine Restaurants and Hotels that we’ve never experienced before.


In the first six months of this year alone, over 500 new restaurants opened … and that’s only all over Metro Manila! The construction boom in hotels and resorts all over the country is likewise accelerating at a rapid pace.


Every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there's a new restaurant opening its doors. There are a lot of great new dining choices, side by side with the perennials, the classics that we grew up with.  As food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, we're always very curious about the crowd favorites. The popular vote, if you will.  What are the beloved favorites? Let the voice of the people be heard!


Our Awesome Planet, the country’s #1 food blog and one of the Top 50 travel blogs in the world;  and the Food Writer and Blogger Collective known as the KTG (Kain Tulog Gang); together with the prestigious World Food Expo (WOFEX), The Ultimate Food Show Experience, have partnered to conduct the People's Choice for the Favorite Food, Restaurants, Hotels, and Chefs …. Or simply, “The Choice”.


About The Choice

Through the first four years, we have celebrated the Best of the Best, and have elevated the most beloved restaurants to the Hall of Fame after winning their category three times. This year, we celebrate our landmark Year V!
We conducted an intense first round of voting among ourselves, and our resulting Finalist Lists have made us very pleased:  we feel it's a very diverse and fair representation of all our favorites from many diverse categories.



The Survey Parameters

2. There are 45 questions in this survey, and answering this survey should take only around 10-15 minutes. It is best to give a definitive answer to each question, but feel free to skip if you can't decide.

3. All answers are considered final once you click on the submit button.

4. Strictly one completed survey will be counted for each person voting.

5. Please provide us your name and email address for our random validation of the survey responses; rest assure that all information submitted will be kept confidential.
