The Oil Kingdom – Brunei

Please pardon me my post has nothing to do with oil drilling or extraction.  Just another makan post in Brunei :p


Kuala Belait (KB).

It is a really small town but apparently this is the “Orchard Road”  (spotted some foreign brands, Royce, Face Shop, Body Shop, Laneige) Lol!


Swiss Hotel Apartment.  Got free upgrade to suite :p


Brunei konlou mee and fried kueh teow (near hotel).  Don’t bother to try.


Restaurant Jolene.  Best Chinese food.


Excapade Sushi at KB


WYWY (left).  You should try this restaurant as they have a variety of food!

Zaika Restaurant (right).  Don’t bother to try and it is pricey.


Kaizen Sushi at the town.

This is the best Japanese restaurant in Brunei.

Brunei is well known for Japanese foods  (even Miri folks will flock to Brunei during weekends for Japanese foods!).  Not sure why though because Brunei do not have many Japanese.


Sushi conveyor belt @ Kaizen wtf!


Taj restaurant.

Teh Tarik Special only in Brunei (aka Brunei teh tarik).  It is very aromatic (like bandung/cendol) lol!


Restaurant Jolene again!  Vegetarian dinner with a vegetarian fren 🙂

IMG_4922Royce from “Orchard Road” lol!  A special gift to our colleauges in Brunei.  Very thankful for their company as well as bring us around Brunei for good food 🙂


Salt Tapas & Bar @ Raffles City

I just got to write this post!

On the special day, my dear hubby brought me to this place which I really love.

Salt Tapas – originated from Australia.


Standard set lunch @ $30+ for a chicken set.  Additional $10 for the main selection for roasted barramundi (fish) with squid, tomato & chorizo (sausage).

Fried oysters in chickpea cumin batter (price by piece)

Flat bread @ $6+

The food is so love 🙂

IMG_4796I especially like the outdoor dining so cozy! (except staff service could be better)

It has been ages we had such an enjoying meal and the lovely chatting session!  Life are too much of busy-ness and we tend to forget the meaning of living.  I felt so bless on that particular day (lol!) and I cannot ask for more.
