High Frequency has been one of the hip places to go for coffee or dates, or ideal for a group of friends to catch up – while having lots of artistic creative décor for you to Instagram.
I always enjoy looking at the retro stylistic posters hanging on their walls – and the way they arrange the furniture – different heights and style of tables and chairs give this place a different feel and caters to different groups.
After so many Sungkai buffets, it’s nice to have a nice gourmet dinner for a change. High Frequency’s management has always tried their best to source out good quality ingredients to ensure the most delicious food is served. They have two sets for you to choose – the Savour or the Lavish Set. The Savour is $28 while the Lavish is $38.
Both sets give you a choice of one drink from the four – Stewart’s Cream Soda or Roor Beer ~~ Aranciata Rossa or Aranciata (Blood Orange or Orange Juice – by San Pellegrino). The cream soda is my favourite of the four ~~~
Thirsty? *gulp* Look at that Cream Soda calling my name ~~~
Start your Sungkai meal with honey dates ~~
Both Savour and Lavish set will consist of these three gourmet appetizers. Man – do they look good! *slurps*
In the middle – is a baby scallop with a lemon and crème foamy emulsion that gives a fresh tasting flavour to the scallop. You should start with this one first as it’s the mildest flavour of the three.
The second appetizer is a crab mousseline on crostini bread and topped with a marinated cod roe. The mousse packs a punch with the crab flavour and goes well with the slight salty cod roe. Mmmmmm…
lastly, we move on to this tasty morsel – a Maryland Crab Cake – oh man – I could have ten of these if I could! MORE MORE MORE!!! Oh yeah – there’s the main course to come ~~~ well – the appetizer did the trick – that is to make me want to eat more ~~
The head chef welcomed us and introduced us to the two sets they have available for the Sungkai Set.
Now let’s take a look at the available choices of main course for the Savour set – you can pick one from these 3 as your main course.
This is the delicious boeuf bourguignon, a French style beef stew that takes quite a long time to make! It is served with a very delicious mash – which is actually not potato – but actually cauliflower mash! I must say I enjoyed the mash very very much! An eye opener!
The Poulet Cordon Bleu is basically rolled chicken stuffed with beef bacon and cheese, then coated with bread crumbs and fried. It is then served is a special creamy mushroom sauce. Oooh yes ~~*smacks lips*
If you are into seafood pasta ~ then you’ll enjoy their spaghetti clams vongole, with mussels and served in a crustacean sauce. A light main course and more suited for the ladies~ I personally would take the chicken or the beef ~ nom nom ~~
Two prominent foodies in Brunei, Marul and Gzul – can’t wait to instagram their food ~~ always a custom for us when having beautiful food ~~ simply must share share to our followers ~~
Now – the Lavish set of three is of course more expensive but as you can see – the ingredients are more on the posh expensive side ~~ so it’s worth it if you want to splurge a little ~ You can choose one of them as your mains for the set ~~
This is their carved roast prime beef, which to me is perfectly seasoned, has a decent fatty crust from the grill! Served with rocket with roasted tomato salad and yummy caramelized potatoes! Make sure you tell them your desired doneness ~~~ I always go for medium rare ~~ oooh yes ~~ juicy steaks!
Linguine pasta, served with butter baked Slipper Lobster and Salmon ~~ *swoons* I know this is supposed to be the lighter main suitable for the ladies – but how can I say no to this?
Last but not least of the three, is this gorgeous looking seafood platter! Grilled sea bass, New Zealand Mussels, Slipper Lobster and Flower Prawn ~~ well seasoned – served with rocket with roasted tomato salad. Mama Mia! A seafood army ready to be destroyed by the foodie ~~ OM NOM NOM NOM!
A group of girls celebrating a surprise birthday ~~ happy and smiling from the good dinner at High Frequency.
While my fellow Brunei Foodie, Marul is having a secret date with someone ~~ ahhhh ~~ woo hoo!
Ahhhh now on to desserts – both set allows you to choose between this coffee powered mascarpone sponge fingers goodness in a cup – yes – it’s Tiramisu ~~
or you could go for one of Homer Simpson’s favourite dessert ~~ as he calls them ~~ oooo burnt cream or crème brulee ~~ a creamy custard – with caramelized burnt sugar tops ~~
For me ~~ I always order a latte to enjoy my desserts ~~ it’s not included in the Sungkai menu ~~ but I can never come to High Frequency without savouring their coffee ~~ that would be a #foodcrime ~~ or #coffeecrime !
We also got to try the High Frequency burger – which is a simple down to earth juicy meaty burger ~~ thumbs up ~~ pretty yummy! This is part of their dinner ala carte menu, which starts after 8PM during the month of Ramadhan ~
Be sure to checked their other desserts which are not on the Sungkai Set, the salted caramel banana cake ~~
And this indulgent looking chocolate cake ~~~ ooooh laa laa ~~
