Penang / Restaurants Reviews

Golden Triangle Restaurant | Penang

I have been going to Golden Triangle since they first opened at one of the tiny shop lots opposite Bukit Jambul Complex. Back then, I was still a college student and it was a real treat to have lunch here. Now, Golden Triangle is very established with two very spacious restaurants. I guess this tells you people like their food. In Penang, a restaurant would not last long if the food is not up to standard as every Penangite is spoilt for choices of fantastic food. Also, our taste buds have been trained since little.

Golden Triangle Interior 1 | The TrishawThe interior is filled with wooden furniture

Coconut otak otak | The TrishawSeafood Otak-otak in Coconut (RM23.70) is one of the must have creaminess of eggy spiced fish paste with lots of seafood. It is their speciality, so highly recommended.

Pandan Chicken 1 | The TrishawPandan chicken (RM17.70) served with sweet chilli sauce.

Pandan Chicken 2 | The TrishawMarinated chicken is wrapped in the fragrant pandan leaves (screwpine leaves) then deep fried. This way of cooking keeps the chicken moist and fragrant.

Steamed fish | The Trishaw

The Songkhla Lemon Steamed Fish (RM42) makes you salivate and is perfect to eat with rice. The sauce is like a less spicy but more sour version of tom yum soup. It was great! If you are not up for fish, try the Claypot Glass Noodle Crab (RM42) which is totally different but very tasty. I think it will be a good mix to the many various dishes but it really depends on the crab availability that day.

Tom Yum Soup | The TrishawThe tom yum soup (RM21.70) was intense with sourness, spiciness, and fragrant citrus from the lemongrass and lime leaves.

Mango sticky rice 1 | The Trishaw

Mango & glutinous rice

I normally order my favourite Thai dessert, Tap Thim Krop (RM5.70). They make really good ones. Too bad, we were out of it. It has jack fruits, water chestnut cubes wrapped in tapioca balls served in coconut milk. So we ordered mango and glutinous rice (RM18.70) for dessert instead. It is very filling and is a very big portion, meant for sharing.

I would also recommend their Pineapple Fried Rice (15.70) and Belacan Fried Rice (RM14.70) if all you wanted was something simple and flavourful. I used to have these all the time when I was still a college student at their first, humble restaurant opposite Bukit Jambul Complex. It was a real treat for lunch. Of course, it was cheaper then.
