A HAPPY DAY OUT AT GURNEY PARAGON

It is a really sunny and warm Sunday. Kaya & Butter, both decides to hang out at Gurney Paragon. We had a light breakfast earlier this morning before going to church. Therefore, we are basically quite hungry when we reach Gurney Paragon in the afternoon. There are plenty of people at the mall today, maybe due to the warm weather outside. We are craving for Japanese food recently, so we agree to have a Japanese cuisine marathon this afternoon, by visiting Rakuzen, Sushi Zanmai and Pasta Zanmai.

 Our first stop is Rakuzen, the most expensive one among these 3 restaurants stated above. Obviously, we do not need to queue up, but it does not mean that the food is not good. The environment is cozy and comfortable, with yellow lighting and wonderful wooden interior.

It is very thoughtful of the management and the designer, to create such a great eatery ambience with certain level of privacy for their customers.

We are quite delightful to dine in the room that we are located. Butter loves the artistic bubbly lighting above our table very much.

The Menu

A HAPPY DAY OUT AT GURNEY PARAGON (8)

Calpis Kyoho Shake 

RM10

This yogurt based drink is actually quite delicious although it looks plain.

Iced Green Tea Latte 

RM8

Sanshoku Don 

RM55

It is meant to mix everything together to eat. It is quite tasty with the not-so-strong taste wasabi.

Sashimi Moriawase 

RM100

8 kinds of sashimi: Otoro Sashimi (Tuna Fatty Belly), Awabi Sashimi (Abalone), Kampachi (Amberjack), Ikura (Salmon Roe), Amaebi (Sweet Shrimp), Toro Salmon (Salmon Belly) and Fugu Sashimi (Puffer Fish)

The ingredients are very fresh and it worths the price. We love the way they are decorated, so delicately presented. It’s food art! People who likes sashimi, makes sure you do not miss this.

Edamame

RM8

This boiled green soybean comes with a little salt. It is a nutritious snack that once you start to take, you never want to stop. Furthermore, its price is reasonable for a high end japanese restaurant like this, and it’s fresh.

Wagyu Sirloin Steak (60g)

RM65

This is a dish recommended by the manager. Honestly, it surprise us ! The beef steaks are sliced thinly and are carefully arrange on a heated rock. Butter seldom take beef steak, but this dish changes Butter’s mind. It is so tender and soft, and juicy as well. However, the portion is not a lot. It makes us want to come back to eat again.

Dragon Roll

RM30

Wow, it does look like a dragon! The sushi is not bad.

Nama Choco Ice

RM13

It comes with 2 flavours, that are  Macha and Chocolate. It is not so sweet but rich in taste. According to the manager, the ice-cream is imported from Japan. We are in cloud nine taking this ice-cream! A must try dessert. it is so yummy!!!

We always see people queueing up outside this restaurant. We are curious about it. Luckily we reserved earlier and manage to skip the long queue.

The entrance is small but inside is quite spacious and comfortable.

We have some light food here as we had just came out from Rakuzen.

Pasta Zanmai is the smallest among these 3 restaurants. However, we like the dining environment which is so bright due to the tall glasses from celling to floor. We can actually enjoy the sea view from the table we sit. We always want to come to dine here, and we are glad that we make it today. Again, reservation is needed unless you are willing to wait outside for awhile, as the numbers of tables are limited.

Love our round table.

 Nice deco.

 Happily selecting food….

Mocha Mocha

RM8

 Fruit Tea

RM8

Ice Fruit Juice

RM9

The Fruit Tea and Iced Fruit Juice are refreshing. The Mocha Mocha is just OK.

Ebi Tempura no Gomadare Shitate Pasta

RM16

It is strong in sesame aroma. We prefer it to be less oily. The deep fried prawns are not bad.

Tori Karaage to Garlic Rice

RM15

We love the chickens dip in mayonnaise. The garlic rice is not as expected.

Hotate to Kinoko no Mentaimayo Pizza

RM16

Surprisingly this pizza is quite nice. They include scallops in it. The bread of the pizza is thin and crunchy. You won’t feel heavy.

Choco Banana Parfait

RM16

We like the top part but leaving the bottom part untouched. We just can’t take the cornflakes plainly. Furthermore, we are quite full already.

Butter loves this cabana so much. So comfortable and relaxing! How Butter wishes to buy one home only if our house has a big space to put it in.

Console

RM4,448

What a stylish white lacquered console (1600 x 390 x 840mm). There are drawers in drawers, easy to sort things out and very convenient.

It is a fruitful day out. We really enjoy our eating and shopping trips. Although tired, but we are happy and satisfied.
