It was a sunny afternoon today when the idea of hanging out abruptly came into picture. And well, I thought it was a pretty fresh idea and to let’s see what an ad hoc foodie adventure would bring us
Our first stop bring us back to Sri Petaling, an area that offers massive dining options, be it casual, fast food till restaurant suitable for family alike. As my friend was so eager and trying hard to pester me into trying out this new bun in town, and so, I gave in and there we went, Bear Paw located at the same lot occupied by Ochado, but just slightly further in.
The place was airy and exuded some warm ambience with the orangey lights around. It was also accompanied by some decorated Christmas tree and some Yuletide ornaments to signify the festive mood which is just barely fortnight’s away. Soon, we made our way to the counter to order for two sets of Meal 2: Brown Sugar Bear Paw with Okinawa Milk Tea.
The buns arrived warmly in a triangular plastic wrapper boldly bearing its signature brand “Bear Paw”. Undeniably, it was definitely a cutesy sight of these kickshaw bear which were quite fluffy as you bite on them. As these paw-shaped soft buns were of brown sugar variant, you get to taste the fragrance of the sugar aroma amidst the very mild sweetness of it.
For the Meal 2 set, the bun came with the choice of spicy chicken fillet that was doused with generous wrath of teriyaki sauce alongside some few slices of lettuce and some tomatoes. Chicken meat was agreeably juicy and tender with some crispiness on the outside. However, I personally found the accompanied sauce was a tad too overpowering with ginger taste alongside some sweet and sour mixture. I guess it would fare better if it was replaced with black pepper gravy instead? Anyway, it was just my two cents.
Although overall the bun didn’t leave much deep impression, there was this Okinawa tea to save the day. It was pleasantly milky with the tea fragrance. Not too sweet but just nice in wetting the palate with the goodness of Okinawa tea. Slurps!
