This French-inspired Caribbean restaurant is newly set on Wyndham Street at Central.
Paradis, a restaurant and cocktail bar, recognized for its colonial-style interior, forest green decor and rustic wallpaper across the dining room, where took up the space of the previous L’Entrecote de Paris. Featuring a blend of Caribbean-French focused dishes, there are small starters, mains and desserts from savory to sweet.
Start from a loaf of homemade buttery focaccia served with a delightful chicken liver pate and lemon thyme butter. An interestingly refreshing red oak salad follows, made with pine nuts, chunks of Italian blue cheese and dehydrated pineapple profiled by a mango vinaigrette, along with clams & crabmeat in lobster broth. I particularly love the semi-solid summer corn cooked with yellow saffron, set underneath the plump scallop and mini gnocchi; as well as the classic beef tartare with annatto seed and a raw Japanese egg yolk. After all, I think it is well-seasoned though is teeny tiny tad bit salty; alongside a bowl of irresistible truffle hand cut fries.
Coming to the mains, we loved the grilled whole lobster which has been beautifully plated, with complements of grilled corn, spring onion and a scrumptious mango cream; whilst the pork presa is definitely one of the juiciest cut I have ever had.
Fish of the day is a piece of grilled hamachi fillet, and also the duck breast that comes with duck-fat roasted potatoes, has a perfectly crispy top.
To end the meal, there are a mix of chocolate texture – rich chocolate ganache, praline mousse, brownie cookie and the most loved brandy ice cream; peach parfait with a wacky but nice goat cheese ice cream; pastry trio, where I like the basil semifreddo the most; and some sorbets to complete our sweet palates. Additionally, the mango chutney on the cheese assortment definitely worths a mention too.
