Paradise Inn

2) Steamed Silver Cod with Spicy Bean Paste ($18 for small). the bean paste was soft, spicy and salty

3) Double-Boiled Spare Ribs Soup with Winter Melon and Conpoy  ($16.80 per pot) was a delicate, non-MSG-tasting, essence of pork bones, dried scallops and winter melon. We happily slurped this comforting soup u
