Everyone knows Funan Digital Mall in Singapore for its IT and gadget stuff. Very few talk about it for food. But there are some pretty nice places to eat in Funan itself and Paradise Inn is one of them. Serving Chinese food, one can expect the usual affair with good taste at a decent price.
I am a big fan of the err braised (?) peanuts, so any restaurant that serves me that, and it is done well deserves a good mention.
Sharon tasted a bit of this dish the last time, and she wanted to eat it again. I am also happy to give this dish a second go. It is pretty much soup, with poached Chinese spinach and a combination of egg, salted egg and century egg – all in a superior broth thingamajig.
This is really good and a dish I would recommend to anyone. I believe some of them call it “seong tong”.
Sharon loves century egg, and so do I. Not a big fan of pickled ginger though, so I usually down the egg by itself. You can’t really mess this up.
Take another dish that you can’t go wrong like Sweet and Sour Pork, add lychees to it and you have a combination that will satisfy me. It is not a “must eat” but it contains two of my favourite ingredients – pork and lychees so yes, it is good. You probably won’t be able to differentiate it from any usual sweet and sour pork though. Until you bite into the lychees, then you taste lychee :P
We moved on to desserts and the first was Ah Baling with Red Bean Sago. Not too sweet, and the filling was nice, substantial enough to call it filling. This is a good dessert to have, at least better than our next.
The Sweet Taro Paste with Sweet Potato looks good on paper. We were excited to try it until they served us one that has gone bad. That was a pity, it was so promising but all we remember of it now is the sour taste. They refunded us but we will try it the next time. If we dare.
So, there you have it, Paradise Inn in Funan Digital Mall, Singapore. If you are hungry after shopping for gadgets, then this place could help you appease that hunger.
