Shark's fin and foie gras advocates be warned: this particular post DOES contain shark's fin and foie gras. So no bashing please. Let's just respect the fact that everyone has the freedom to choose what they want in life :) That being said, let's move on to the next restaurant on our recently concluded Singapore trip, shall we?
If you've read up on my previous post, I've mentioned that Ion Orchard houses 2 of the must-trys in my Singapore restaurants list. First was Paradise Dynasty, and the second, Taste Paradise. If they sound oddly the same, it's because they both do indeed belong to the same Paradise Group in Singapore. I'm actually no stranger to Taste Paradise, having tried it long before they moved to their current location in Ion Orchard. Two years ago, Hubby and I also had the pleasure of dining here. So why do we keep on coming back? Read on.

Yep. THIS is the reason why we keep on coming back. To tell you that their Shark's Fin Soup tastes wonderfully amazing would be an understatement. If I can only drink one soup for all eternity, then this is it. While it may look normal, I assure you, it is not. Taste Paradise's shark's fin is cooked with the shark bone itself making the soup extra thick and lip-smackingly good kind of sticky.

While we normally order the restaurant's set menu, this time, we opted to go ala carte. And knowing me, Hubby ordered the tasting plate that had the foie gras in it. Let me tell you, my eyes widened the moment the server laid down the plate on our table. It was by far the largest serving of foie gras I've ever seen in a restaurant. Fabulous!

...and this must be one of the best fishes I've ever tried. Soft, succulent and creamy.
|Wok Fried Pasta with Black Truffle Sauce accompanied with Assorted Seafood|
Plus the smallest yet tastiest bowl of truffled noodles. See the small black bits? Truffle! I'm in heaven.
Their BBQ combination did not disappoint either. Every single piece of skin was crunchy, with the meat tender and oh so flavorful.
So... what's not to love? Absolutely nothing. Dining in Taste Paradise is like coming home after months of being stuck in a desert. Sheer, pure bliss. 5 out of 5 stars!
Taste Paradise is at Ion Orchard No.2 Orchard Turn, #04-07 ION Orchard, Singapore
