Beach St Bistrot by David Chin & Brian Chin @ Beach Street, Penang

People who know me know I'm not really into fancy restaurants. I'm all about those laid-back hawker food around in Penang because that's why Penang food is about.
However, with the recent discover about this dining place Beach Street Bistrot which has been operating for a while in Penang and known for its good food and kind pocket friendly as compared to other fancy dining places, I decided to give it a try celebrating friends' birthday there and check out the food available.

So it is strategically located at the heart of George Town, where more tourists gathered and extremely busy during day time. Beach St Bistrot can be found in Beach Street Penang (opposite the famous China House). There are 2 floors and the place can host up to 60-80pax if it is full house.

The one page menu is pretty simple ranging from appetisers to mains to dessert. There are wines and cocktails also available on another drinks menu.
For meat lovers, seafood lovers or even vegetarians can also dine here because there are plenty of options for everybody.

For Entrees we ordered the Charred Honey Corn Ribs and Truffle Fries.
The Corn Ribs is really something and all of us really enjoyed it. It was charred to perfection and pretty crunchy and sweet salty in taste making it perfect snacks before some heavy mains. As for the Truffle Fries, the fries was specially coated before they deep fried it making it extra crispy. Topped with sliced truffle and served with Truffle Mayo. Both dishes will make you unstoppable.

There is also a list of "Today's Special" depending on what's available on that day.
When we were there, we ordered this "Grilled Hamachi Collar" which was really a unique dish. 
I believe only people who really enjoy fish knows that every part of fish is a gem. For me who will usually go for the flesh especially the belly part only, this is like a new discovery for me.
The outer layer of the collar was grilled till a little bit crispy while the meat in there is still tender. The seasoning and sauce also went perfectly well with the fish.

Squid Ink with Shrimp & Baby Octopus Paella
If you are in for seafood paella, try this Squid Ink Paella which has Baby Octopus, Shrimp and Scallops.
The portion is good for sharing, serves 2 to 3 people if you are not ordering any other mains. 
Seafood were fresh and the paella rice was cooked to perfection. The squid ink is not extremely fishy too. Next time I'm gonna thy other 2 on the menu.

Tagliatelle Truffle Cream Sauce
This is a rich creamy version of pasta where the al dente pasta noodle evenly coated with rich and thick truffle cream sauce and topped with sliced truffle, hokkaido scallops, prawns and crab meat. 
Had to say that this pasta is so good and I seriously think that one plate is not enough for sharing. 

The BSB Wagyu Beef Burger - highly recommended!

For sweet tooth like you can also try some of their desserts too.
The day we were were unfortunately there weren't any desserts except their Tarte Au Chocolat (French Chocolate Tart) due to some issues. There Crepes Suzette was really good as I tried it during me other visit though.

If you are planning for a gathering or celebration, do consider dining at Beach St Bistrot and I'm sure you won't regret.
