A year ago, my first visit to Taste Paradise wasn't bad at all. Close to a year later, I thought it would be a great place to take M & R who had been wonderful in helping with various things for me in the last few months. Unfortunately, the repeat visit didn't live up to expectations.
What we thought was a great corner table turned out to be awkward and caused more discomfort than anyone would have thought, with servers crossing over our heads to serve and clear. Personal space is so underrated these days that's it's a pet peeve of mine, and all the more so at a restaurant touted to be more exclusive than the others. You can take the girl out of public housing but you can't....

|Century egg with a lime sorbet|
|Classic sharks' fin in superior broth|
|Braised beef cheek with Foie Gras|
|Seafood and black truffle noodles|
|Jelly cubes in Calamansi and sour plum|
We were pretty well fed for the price, but would I go again? Well, it really depends. I think they have to up their game to be able to compete in an increasingly tight market of improving Chinese cuisines in Singapore. If I know I have better options of service and food, the location alone is certainly not enough to entice.
