北斗肉圓簡介

Peitou meatball introduction

肉圓meatball是寶島一項頗為重要的小吃snack,很多地方的著名小吃,都是以肉圓為號召,例如:新竹Shinzhu肉圓、台中Taichung肉圓、彰化Changhua肉圓、台東Taidong肉圓等等。不過其中歷史最久,名氣最大的肉圓,仍然要首推北斗Peidou肉圓。

Meatballs are certainly one of the island most important snacks. Numerous locations on the island have there own celebrated meatball dishes. Shinzhu, Taichung, Changhua, Taidong, etcetera. However, Peidou meat balls have the longest tradition and the greatest meatball. 


  北斗肉圓
Peidou meat ball早在日據時代the time of the Japanese occupation of Taiwan,就已經闖出名號了。北斗肉圓的外形是三角形triangular in shape,而且和其他肉圓比較起來,它也嬌小的多,一口a single bite可以吞下一個。因此一個成人,可以吃下四、五個北斗肉圓,也是輕而易舉的事。這可是吃其他地方的肉圓,所沒有的成就感呢!

But the time of the Japanese occupation of Taiwan,  Peidou meatball had already become Taiwan's favorite among meatballs. Peidou meatballs traditionally are triangular in shape since,   they are significantly smaller then other meatballs and in fact can be eaten in a single bite. The average adult can easily eat four or five in one setting. 

可是現在一般人,對彰化肉圓Changhua meatball 的認識,卻比北斗肉圓Peidou meatball要來得多,甚至還有人以為,彰化肉圓就是北斗肉圓呢!這也許是因為,北斗這個地方,缺乏像八卦山Ba-Gua Mountain這樣的名勝scenic,來吸引外來的客人。久而久之, 肉圓的盛名,就被彰化肉圓所取代了。

 Now many Taiwanese are familiar with Changhua meatballs then their Peidou meatballs to the extent some have erroneously believed that Zhanghwa meatballs are Peidou meatballs. This is due to the face that Peidou lacks scenic and tourists attractions such as Ba-Gua Mountain.
