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)
A place for your chocolate fix. Located at Gurney Paragon, level 6 overlooking the seafront of gurney. It is easily missed since it is not exactly located inside the mall, but you will be able to recognize restaurant from its tall glass windows which serves as the perfect medium of natural light for good photography.
Our first time there was in the evening and there weren’t many customers then. We visited Chocolate Passion again on a weekend and the place was quite packed this time round. We thought that this place is perfect to hang out with your friends on a chill afternoon/evening, that is if you don’t mind the noise level which can be on a high side at times, depending on your luck.
Once you enter the glass doors, you will be greeted by plates and plates of chocolate truffles and pralines. All you need to do is find a spot or empty table, place your orders at the counter and eagerly wait for your food to arrive.
