RESTORAN TOP D'GURUN @ GURUN Jalan Raya, Kedah.

Last week, since it's a school holiday we decided to drop by Gunung Jerai for a visit as the last trip we went there was many years ago. Before we went up to Gunung Jerai, we passed by this restaurant and saw lots of people patronizing this shop. We decided to stop by for our late lunch at this shop.
RESTORAN TOP D'GURUN

Drinks

FOODS

When we patronizing this shop there are still lots of customers but the food were limited to choose from and they still cooked it from their open kitchen. So we just grabbed whatever choices available as following:
Deep Fried assorted fishes
Their fried fishes are very tasty. I like their textures. Some places they will over cooked their fishes but this place their fishes just nicely cooked. Give it a try if you happen to drop by. 

 Curry Fish Head
Their curry fish head is another good try. Their curry gravy is very good to go with the rice. Most importantly the fish itself is very fresh. 
Deep Fried Chicken Drumstick
When we about to finish the our meal, their deep fried chicken were just ready from their wok. So we decided to give it a try, And it tastes nice although from my first instinct when i looked at the chicken drumstick, I told myself hmm..... this must be overcooked but out of surprised when I had my first bites its very crispy from the outer layer and juicy interior part of the drumstick.
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: Good that we stopped by to try this place. The people in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Foods were nice and delicious. Price vice, it is very reasonable. We had all the above plus three plates of rice, we paid total of RM30.70.

ZEST BAR CAFE MENU

STARTER


MIANG KAM
Betel Leaves, Coconut, Dried Shrimps, Red Onions, Peanuts, Ginger & Chilli
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: Many years back if you asked me to have miang kam, I would probably skip but years came by and I started to like taking it.  If you cannot take the betel leaves aroma, I think you will not enjoy this dish.

SOUP


TOM KHA GAI - RM12
Siam chicken soup with galangal coconut cream & local spices
TOM YAM GOONG - RM18
Fresh prawn in spicy Tom Yam Soup
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: For me, personally I prefer Tom Yam Goong over Tom Kha Gai. As the later are full of coconut flavour. If the tom yum is a bit more spicy it would be superb.

SOM TAM - RM10
Young Papaya salad with dried shrimp and spices.
YAM MOON SEN - RM12
Glass Noodle salad with prawns, ginger flowers and lime leaf.

NOODLES

Wok fried thai noodles with prawns, beansprout, beancurd & egg pattaya style.

RICE


PAD KRA PRAO - RM18
Sauteed spicy minced chicken with thai kra prao leaf. 
Choice: Chicken or Beef.
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: I would prefer that they put more basil in this dish. It is rather a sweet dish for me. A bit of small chili padi added into this would be nice. 
GREEN CURRY CHICKEN - RM18
Green curry with coconut and thai basil leaf. 
Choice: Chicken or Prawn.
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: Their green curry chicken is quite nice.

FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: Overall their two desserts that I have tried are quite delicious. Especially the Sang Kaya Fug Tong. It is something special which I never tried before.  It is actually steamed pumpkin dessert with egg custard.

FOOD that we savour

The last time I blog about this place was back in 2012. You can view my review here. After 3 years and here we are the same people and same place we had our gathering. We chose this place as our gathering as it is wheelchair friendly. As one  of our guests is assessing with wheelchair. Furthermore they have  wide parking spaces.
We have done the booking with the restaurant 2 days earlier. We want something special and we don't want course meal although we have 10 pax dinning. So they came out with the following dishes: 

龙虾什果沙律伴香蕉带子卷
Lobster Salad with Banana Scallop Roll
Every guest was happy with this dish. The roll itself consisted of the scallop, banana and seaweed. Which was quiet a nice combination. And the middle of the platter is served with the lobster salad - which consist of lobster meat and assorted fruits that cut into cube sizes.

深海龙趸炖鲍翅 
Double-boiled Superior Shark’s fin Soup with Giant Grouper and Dried Scallop
Our guests found it interesting that the shark's fin soup was served with the grouper.
蚝皇澳洲鲍甫扣海参蚝士时蔬
Braised Slice Australia Abalone with Sea Cucumber & Dried Oyster
Guests love the sauces from this dish. Sea cucumber and abalone slices were not too hard. It is just nice.
港式顶抽蒸生猛笋壳
Steamed Fresh Marble Goby Fish with Superior Soya Sauce
 The fish was very fresh and nice.
乳猪腊味糯米饭
Roasted Suckling Piglet with Preserved Waxed Meat Rice
This dish is something special. The upper level is roasted sucking piglet and below level is the preserved waxed meat rice. The roasted suckling piglet is very crunchy and tender. Whereas the preserved wax meat rice is also tastes very good. If you have not tried this before you can give it a try!
Deep Fried Mantou
This is indeed very nice. The outer layer of the mantou is very crunchy. It was served together with the roasted suckling piglet with preserved waxed meat rice.
万星浦冻滋润雪蛤
Chilled Lemon Grass Jelly with Hashima Jelly
Last dishes for this meal is our dessert. It is chilled lemon grass jelly with hashima jelly. Quiet a refreshing wrap up for the meal.
