Despite its official opening quite some time back, Gurney Paragon is still relatively empty and is still filling up with new and exciting stores to offer you a myriad of food, shopping and entertainment. From time to time, we will travel the distance just to explore new eateries in the mall, one of its newest addition being Bear Paw.
With a total of 11 outlets in Klang Valley and Johor Bahru, Bear Paw is not an unfamiliar sight for those of you who frequent there. Recently launched its very first outlet in Penang, Bear Paw is a Taiwanese food chain set to redefine chinese paus, or rather ‘burgers’. It is located at the basement of Gurney Paragon, rather close by Sam’s Grocer, right next to Ban Heang.
Remember how the burger bakars from your neighbourhood stall are messy and calorie-laden? Bear Paw is more diet-friendly with its signature bear-paw shaped buns which are steamed instead of grilled with slabs of planta on it.
We love how you get to pick your own buns out of 4 very different choices: Milk, Brown Sugar, Whole Wheat Pumpkin. Each bun comes with a different colour and flavour profile. We were thinking of some Nicki Minaj buns and settled for Signature Bear Set with Brown Sugar buns. You can choose your own sauces from 5 different types too! (Honey Mustard, Teriyaki, Chilli, Thousand Island and Tartar)
Idealite Restaurant was established in year 2011 by Mr Tan Yong Jen and his another 5 associates whom are recognized as a registered Homeopath Therapist and Nutritionist. Focusing on eating healthy and right became their main focus in the business. They started their business at a corner of their house in Penang Island and slowly expanded to their very first IDEALITE restaurant at Jalan Gottlieb.
Today, they made it more convinient for us by opening in the shopping malls! Their branches are located inside Queensbay Mall on the North Zone and the other one is inside Gurney Plaza beside Kim Gary restaurant.
It was definitely an eye opening experience for first timers like us! Non-vege lovers. Every dish serve was not only unique but it taste just as good as the ones we usually consume in the local restaurants. The dedication and tentativeness of the owner to capture the hearts of many definitely deserve a *like*. The effort of transforming limited ingredients to a similar taste is definitely a huge challenge.
