Mr. Wu Taiwan Restaurant 台湾料理专家 @ Arena Curve, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

Popular Taiwanese food joint- Mr. Wu 台湾料理专家 has presence across the Klang Valley region and the outlet at Arena Curve is their very first in Penang (they are opening another outlet at City Junction Mall Tanjung Tokong). The menu is very much Taiwanese, bringing some of the classic, familiar Taiwanese delights with them. It is quite a pork-heavy menu so if you are not into pork dishes, the menu has very limited to offer. Price points are in the mid-range, considering the serving portion is fairly large. Worth dropping by if you are a Taiwanese food lover.

Salted Crispy Chicken Bento Set 招牌盐酥鸡便当 (Rm 23.90)

Ramen with Spicy Minced Pork Sauce Set 销魂辣味肉酱拉面套餐 (Rm 19.90)

Braised Dried Tofu 卤豆干 (Rm 6.90)

Braised Eg 卤蛋 (Rm 6.90/ 2 pcs)

Sun Moon Lake Black Tea 日月潭红茶 (Rm 7.90)

Rainbow Taro Grass Jelly Shaved Ice 彩色芋圆仙草冰 (Rm 9.90)

The Salted Crispy Chicken Bento Set includes a bowl of Rice topped with braised Meat sauce as well as some side dishes (like Taiwanese pickled Cabbage, fried Fish Cake and fried Sweet Potato Ball). The flavor-combo is pretty straight-forward. We were delighted to find out that the Chicken was well-marinated and carefully cooked with a juicy, tender texture. The Ramen with Spicy Minced Pork Sauce Set has a slightly different side dishes- Miso Radish soup and some pickled Cabbage. The serving portion is slightly smaller than the Salted Crispy Chicken and the Ramen registered a bolder Pork note. The braised Tofu and Egg were nothing out of the ordinary, though they were not disappointing. The dessert was okay-average, they were very generous with the Taro balls but the shaved ice was a little too rough in texture to our liking.
