Bei Tou Squid Snack 北投鱿鱼 @ Golden Triangle, Bayan Lepas

Bei Tou Squid Snack 北投鱿鱼 in Golden Triangle, Bayan Lepas is a franchise restaurant (with 4 restaurants in Taiwan) originated from Taiwan, allowing Penangites to have a taste of some peculiar Taiwanese cuisine, such as thickened soup, bianshi, braised pork on rice and etc in a wallet-friendly price. If you have not been to Taiwan, or somehow miss Taiwanese food, Bei Tou Squid Snack serves as a great spot to satiate your crave with the small menu, despite it still a distance away to give a wow factor.

Exactly like Taiwan, Bei Tou Squid Snack practices a fast serving method. Food will be served swiftly within minutes after ordering. Having tried the classic Jin Feng Braised Pork Rice in Taipei, the Braised Pork On Rice (RM 4.00) in the menu immediately caught our attention. 


As the name suggests, this simple dish has piece of small braised pork topping the white rice, with its gravy diffuses into the rice slightly. The braised pork has decent proportion of lean and fatty meat, giving a pleasant and not surfeiting greasy feeling but it lacks the potent effect.

Braised Duck Egg (RM 1.50), which delivers an unusual rich sensation is a great choice as a top up to this simple meal.

If you have some extra budget to spare, check out the center of the restaurant for some side dishes which you could grab for RM 4.00 per plate. The brinjal packs a savoury and appetizing flavour.

As we yearned for a hot soupy dish in this chilling afternoon, we thought Spicy Ramen (RM 8.90) would be a decent choice but it turned out to be a wrong decision. First thing first, the Ramen was served dried and the noodles lacked the springiness. Moreover, the taste was bland with spicy taste solely. Then there were too much bean sprouts in the noodles, yielding a very unpleasant subtle taste in every portion of the noodles.

Potsticker (RM 9.00) is served steaming warm upon ordering, thus it gives a crispy edge with soft and nice filling. The condiment provided, ginger vinegar dip goes well with the potsticker.

We only had ourselves to be blamed when we thought Bubble Milk Tea (RM 5.50) could not go wrong in any authentic Taiwanese outlet. The pearls were over sweet and seemingly coated with a layer of excessive sucrose solution, and the tea does not exhibit any tea fragrance and tasted more like partially formed milk froth.
