Gurney Plaza - Gelatomio

Eating gelato is always a dream of my wife. And so happened that we saw this Gelatomio on the way down from the Gurney Plaza car park to ground floor. We decided to pit stop for a while to enjoy the gelato.

It is a simple store with some tables available.

The sign is a cute bear holding a 3 scoops ice-cream.

All the available flavors can be seen directly at the counters. The ice-cream looks smooth and nice.

There are plenty of flavors displayed, even fruits and yogurts flavor.

My 2 favorites side by side! :P

The menu at the table.

The ice-cream taste is smooth, lite compared to the super sweet and heavy Haagen Dazs and Baskin Robbins. I actually prefer this. :P

Gurney Paragon - Goku Raku Ramen

It was wife's birthday. As usual, she preferred a simple and relax way of celebration. So, we went for a movie at GSC Gurney Plaza. After the movie, it is lunch time, we want to look for something that we didn't try before. So, we decided to walk over to Gurney Paragon.

Wife is always a fans of ramen, so without hesitation, we went for the Goku Raku Ramen.

The restaurant is located somewhere further inside Gurney paragon on the left. The compound is of medium size, but the interior is very well designed with plenty of seats around.

We chose the seat near to the entrance. The table is pretty huge, it is more like for 4 persons. Since there is not a lot of customers in the restaurant, we got to choose where ever seats we like. :P

There are some bar top seats as well, where you had a view of chefs at work.

The menu are sitting well at the table waiting for its fated customer to take a look at.

A closer look at the frontpage of menu. The two Mandarin words read "ji le" which means maximum happiness.

When I opened the menu, the first page is very interesting. It is actually a guide on how to eat ramen. :P

There are total of 6 steps, which is pretty similar to what my wife told me how to eat ramen after she stationed in Japan for 3 months few years ago. :)

Desserts, which I think not that Japanese style. :P Anyway, when we were there, there is promotion for HSBC credit card members. But since we were not really interested with the dessert, we didn't order any.

Both of us ordered hot green tea, since we just came out from the ever super cold Gurney Plaza's GSC. :P
I still preferred the green tea served in a ceramic round and straight cup. A glass just don't have the right feel of eating ramen. :P

The chopsticks and spoons are served in the basket. The chopstick wrapper is quite interesting, as it can be used in another way as well.

This is how you placed the chopstick. :P

Main dish, the ramen! The soup is nice, the ramen also nice. :) Forgot what is the ramen name already. I think one of it is Goku Raku ramen.

Another view of the ramen before it is consumed. :)

Close up on the ramen.

Price wise I can said it is considered on the high side. The interesting things is that you can actually mix and match the ramen according to the ingredients you preferred. :)

Gurney Paragon - Morganfield's

Our visits to this restaurant is pretty dramatic, including x times of e-mail discussion and 3 times of reservation ffk. Well, we had a schedule to rush for visiting this restaurant especially before one of my colleague's baby delivery. Finally we make it at one of the Friday without one of us, who is having a major eye surgery in KL. Wish him speedy recovery!

Gurney Paragon is only familiar to me as an expensive property building. It never occurs to me to visit it as Gurney Plaza is just besides it and I stayed at mainland. :P

As usual, pork ribs always catch my attention as it is my favorite food after the first time of tasting it in Apple Bee's restaurant at Mc Carthy Ranch, San Jose. So, I'm so excited when my fellow colleague mentioned about eating ribs at Morganfield's. Without second thought, I straight away agreed to it.

The center part of the Gurney Paragon. with both high tower (not sure is super condo or office building) at the side. 

The outlook of Morganfield's. The outlet is pretty huge with quite a number of seats. From outside it looks like a bistro/bar more than like a restaurant.

The big billboard with a short introduction to their ribs.

Surprise to see a classic jukebox in da house. If you'll like to listen to your favorite music whiile enjoying your meal, give it a try. :)

Plenty of choices at the bar counter......

They serve red wine too, should be good to drink it with the ribs. :P

The pamphlet greeting me when I just sit down, their famous ribs, grilled with Jack Daniel's.

There is a guest comment card readied at each table for you to feedback. Don't forget to give a "like" in the guest card if you like their service and food. :)

The menu is pretty simple, it is a piece of paper with all the value set lunch shown on it. I was there during lunch time. I personally like their choices a lot.

The highlight of the menu, the ribs. :P

Set Lunch's soup of the day.

Chicken Caesar salads. Nice!

B.L.T Salads, the vegetables are fresh, the taste is light. Really good to go along with the all meaty ribs. :)

I ordered the Smokehouse Bacon Cheeseburger, really love the patties. The patties is really soft and melt in the mouth.

Lastly, the ribs!!!! I'll say so far the best I tried in Penang. :P Juicy, tender and grilled to perfection. :) We ordered a full rack and shared among us. It is best to do it this way so that can try more types of food especially when we were there as a group.

There's not a lots of parking around Paragon, so you might need to spend sometime looking for parking. I didn't park inside the Paragon parking, not sure how is the parking availability inside. There are plenty of parking along Gurney Drive.
