Best of both worlds, fish with bear paw!

Bear Paw is originated from Taichung, Taiwan and marked the first franchise business in Singapore. The place is accessible via Bugis MRT station and within minutes walking towards end of Tan Quee Lan Street, just beside Marrison Hotel.

The outlet is located at one cosy corner of the building  with indoor as well as outdoor dining.

Welcome to Bear Paw

Designs were contemporary and modern with its menu board well placed above the order counter. Note the franchise logo at the left of the counter.

Menu was pretty concise and straight forward. One can actually choose to go for Bear's Buns or Rice. For Bear's Buns, Customers are required to choose the bun, patty and sauces to be served. Bear's Rice was even more simple, just choose the type of patty and Sauces.





Had the bears been here? There were left over paws marks on the wall.
Decors
There was a generous choice of drinks series to choose from. Fresh Teas, Milk Tea, Yakult and Fresh Fruit tea. The fresh fruit tea was made per order using fresh fruits and served in its most nutritious condition. The pulp and seeds of kiwi was distinct from the cup of drink.

The Lemon Yakult and Brown Rice Tea was a little sweet for me. Nevertheless, these drinks had brought out the Tawainese night market culture.








The concept of bear paws remind me of local's Kong Ba Pau (Braised Pork Meat in Buns) which I had days before. However, comparing sizes, its paw bun was twice as big as the Pau for Kong Ba and was flown in directly from Taiwan vacuum packed. Health watchers may give a few nods on these as there were no preservatives added during the baking of buns.

These lovely fluffy buns was pillow soft and comes 3 flavours each with paws imprinted on the buns.

Each paw burger was kept in a square wrapping. The design was consumer friendly so that patrons would avoid dirtying their hands caused by the dripping sauces during the beary bites!

How to resist such cute little puffs? The appealing outlook could have just had anyone of us on first sight! Seriously, I can't bear to eat them up too!

Ta-da, the Paws Gathering

Ingredients of Bear's Buns was standard apart from the customized choice of buns, patty and sauces. It include slices of tomatoes as well as lettuce to sum the bear burgers.

Cod fish was used for their Fish patty and was equally good, fits its theme "谁说鱼与熊掌不可兼得"? absolutely well!

The brown sugar bun had a tinge of sweetness and complement well with the saltish taste of fried chicken patty.See! The prints were made 3D with the sunken effect! Simply cute!

French fries were pretty standard but still serves a good company as finger food.

When anyone mentions Taiwan's night market, probably the first thing that comes to mind is the fried chicken cutlet. Here, you get the same kind of juicy, tender deep fried chicken patty, wrapped in a bun which is delicious and different from the normal fast food. If you get bored of the classic KFC burgers, Bear Paw is an absolute good alternative towards something more creative at almost the same pricing. What's else to say? Beary Nice!
