"East-meets-west" Fusion

From the original Paradise Inn branding, The Paraduse Group has since expanded and now includes LE Restaurant and Tapas Bar, Taste Paradise, Paradise Pavilion, Seafood Paradise, Canton Paradise, Paradise Dynasty, My Nasi and even catering company One Paradise. Kungfu Paradise remains as one of the most unique ones under the umbrella which targets a younger audience with a fusion theme where “east-meets-west”. The menu is pretty much of a mix of everything. Expect to find a menu similar to Hong Kong tea rooms, thrown with a bit of western dishes and then mixed with a few Japanese elements.

The Steamed Custard Lava Bun ($3.90) is one of the few dimsums offered here. The bun had quite a thick skin and required a few bites to get to the bursting lava inside. Some parts are also not very liquid as well.

The Sausage "Babe" Rice ($12.80) is one of the various baked rice dishes offered here. Kungfu Paradise allows customers to choose which sauce they would like their Baked Rice to come in, with choices of Tomato, Cream or Curry. There was sufficient cheese covering the rice, and it was stringy upon being pulled about. Few chili flakes were spotted on the cheese but they did not carry any level of spiciness. There were two types of sausages used in this dish; a western type of sausage which is the one in white that had a bit of pepper in it and the red one which was Taiwan sausage.

Following the not-so-impressive Steamed Custard Lava Bun, we were hoping that the Chocolate Lava Cake ($6.80) will not turn out underwhelming. We were sort of relieved when it came, and with a vanilla ice-cream as well. The ice-cream seemed pretty much supplied, but the lava cake was warmed sufficiently so as to allow the chocolate lava to be liquid enough. The chocolate was also not full of cloying sweetness as well.

Located at #01-07 of Jcube, Kungfu Paradise is part of the Paradise Group and serves up Cha Chan Teng style foods as well as western entries such as steak, burgers and pasta in their menu.

The restaurant has a specials menu, called The KungFu Hits, available from 11am - 5pm, Mon- Fri. All items on this menu are priced at $7.90. To order, diners are give a slip of paper to fill in what they want and the waiter/waitress will collect the slip.

I had the Wasabi Fish Cutlet Rice, which was impressive given it's price. The fish was fried with a batter that gave it a very crunchy exterior while the meat was tender, delicate and flaky. I was also pleased with the wasabi sauce. It was mild and had the taste of wasabi without overwhelming. (I'm not a fan of the overpowering wasabi smell.) The flavored egg that came along is praiseworthy too. It was done exactly right with a soft center. I remember seeing the egg as an item on its own in the menu for $1.80. Yummy!

Very lousy service with poor seating arrangement.

Whole place is also very noisy.

Lengthy recommendation for first time customers.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
