DSCF1599

The Nanyang Pantry management has been making new additions to the food court - Korean and Indonesian cuisine as well as introducing new cafe style drinks to th food court. You can also expect Indian cuisine to come in July. Remember to like them on Facebook www.facebook.com/thenanyangpantry Instagram @thenanyangpantry

Our main objective was to try out their latest addition to the foodcourt ~~ Indonesian Cuisine. To be honest - I am a big fan of Indonesian food and was skeptical whether the quality would be good in such small food court kitchens. When I had a taste of their Ayam Bakar Kalasan - I knew their food would be good so I dragged the whole Brunei Foodies gang over to try the food!

Warung Pojok basically means corner shop in Indonesia! They have pictures of the food to make ordering easier!

 

DSCF1589

They got quite a few side dishes/appetizers to share on their menu ~~ the sambal telur is an obvious one to order ~~ *drools*

 

DSCF1627

The Orek Tempeh is a good mix of nuts, ikan bilis and crispy tempeh stir fried with a sweet spicy sauce!

 

DSCF1637

Or some crispy thin cucur tempeh to dip with sambal to start ~~

 

DSCF1659

You gotta have your veggies - so order some to share such as this taugeh stir fried with salted fish ~~

 

DSCF1665

or local favourite stir fried long beans with sambal

 

DSCF1368

Surprised to see Kailan on the menu and I ordered it because I have a craving for kailan ~~ they cooked it pretty well - won't lose to a Chinese restaurant!

 

DSCF1650

The sambal terung (eggplant) is really good! Texture wise and flavour wise - spot on!

 

DSCF1613

Indonesian style salad ~~ gado gado ~~ veggies served with Indonesian style peanut sauce and sweet soy sauce ~~

 

DSCF1631

Come come ~~ lemme feed you my dear ~~~

 

DSCF1703

You can't really be an Indonesian restaurant without Ayam Penyet but I like their combination of Nasi Goreng Kampung with sunny side up egg and ayam penyet ~~ gorgeous!

 

DSCF1660

Their Ayam Bakar Madu is pretty popular as well!

 

DSCF1683

Their Ayam Goreng Belado might look spicy but I think most will be able to handle the heat of this one ~~ another good dish to try here!

 

13343116_10153679988386417_7979364422742952170_n

Their Ayam Bakar Kalasan is actually my favourite chicken dish ~~ they use fresh coconut to make the sauce for this grilled chicken ~~ highly recommended!

 

DSCF1603

If you love beef soups ~~ you must try their sup tulang - notice how tender that looks? *drools*

 

13330896_10153680229636417_7951637848117593305_n

Reedah spotted Sup Tulang Merah on their menu ~ and oh boy ~~ we insist to order it even after we had sup tulang ~~ it was simply epic! Much like beef ribs stew ~~ but masak merah style ~~

 

DSCF1697

Since they had tumpi on the menu -- Bruneian style fried dough ~~ we decided to dip the tumpi on the sauce ~~ ooooh my gawdd ~~~ what a good combination! We think the chef should start serving this sup tulang merah with tumpi in future!

 

DSCF1696

Speaking of Tumpi -- the favourite Bruneian breakfast is actually in the menu! Choose between beef rendang or chicken curry to enjoy your tumpi with ~~ though we hope the Sup Tulang Merah version will come out soon!

 

WhatsApp-Image-20160531 (1)

I have to say - the prices are very very attractive for their specials! $10 for crabs and $12.5 for fish head?! That's a bargain! Who says you need to spend a lot to enjoy seafood in Brunei?

 

DSCF1599

Seriously - I cannot believe this set is only $10! This Ketam Sos Padang is a must have! Thumbs up for the Padang sauce!

 

DSCF1592

Big prawns in Padang Sauce for only $20! I really like the fragrant spicy sauce! Goes especially well with the rice!

 

002 Udang Nestum

You can also order the big prawns with Nestum style ~~ or Butter style ~~ local favourites ~~~ also for $20. Note that big prawns are subject to availability and supply from the local markets.

 

DSCF1639

Their dancing fish and mango fish is $18 only. Pretty good price for fish dish! You can daaaance ~~ you can flyyyy~~~~ ooooohh ~~~ dancing fishhhhh~~

 

DSCF1622

The Assam Pedas Fish Head is only $12.50! Cheap and nice!

 

DSCF1634

Their Curry Fish Head is very fragrant and I could smell the spices while I was taking the photo ~~~ really wet my appetite man! $12.50 too! Can you believe it?!

 

DSCF1691

A special mention for this dish which is something new to me ~ Warung Pojok's Salted Yolk Pandan Prawn is a revealation! I was very surprised when I tasted this - the pandan flavours goes surprisingly well here! Give this a try and tell me if you feel the same way! YUM! Genius!

 

DSCF1609

Another dish that deserves a mention is the Laksa Kari Melayu which has the similar sweet sour flavour profile of Penang Assam Laksa but based on my taste - it's more towards Trengganu or Kelantan style Assam Laksa as they did not use prawn paste in this ~~ the ladies would love this!

 

DSCF1580

For dessert ~~ we spotted their all day cucur ~~ so we decided to have some cucur pisang ~

 

DSCF1699

The Cucur Pisang with shaved white truffle ~~~ HAHAHAHA ~~ #suspen #youwish #notWhitetruffle actually it's shaved cheese ~~~

 

DSCF1584

To wash down all that spicy delicious Indonesian food - The Nanyang Pantry food court have quite an extensive selection when it comes to drinks - you might even take quite a long time to decide!

 

Specialstemp

The Nanyang Pantry drinks section actually offers quite a great selection of cafe style drinks and mocktails! They have a barista who used to work in a popular cafe in Brunei! The prices are lower than cafes of course ~ pretty good value!

 

DSCF1585

Nata Coco Pandan ~~ Nata De Coco (coconut jelly), basil seeds and pandan ~~ mmm ~~~~

 

DSCF1378

The Ice Cool Vanila drink actually has a good taste of earl grey milk tea and matches well with the vanilla ice cream!

 

DSCF1380

The Kasturi Lime Fizz is simply refreshing and perfect for the hot day!

 

DSCF1588

They even have dessert! Who can say no to Rockmelon Sago dessert!! *DROOLS* That should cool down the hot spicy Korean or Indonesian food!

 

WhatsApp-Image-20160531 (2)

Man that was quite a big meal! I am glad that there's a great new place to enjoy Indonesian cuisine in Brunei and at pretty affordable prices!

 

WhatsApp-Image-20160531

They have set meals if you dine in with your family and friends ~~~ yay more savings!

Brunei Restaurants: Delicious Nasi Lemak around Tanjung Bunut

13221681_10153662455231417_4648817618250671293_n

Recently, there's a new restaurant that just opened and serves pretty good Nasi Lemak. Pandan rice with gorgeous spicy sambal and fried chicken. i can say it's one of the better Nasi Lemak out there and I'm happy it's located around Tanjung Bunut area!

 

13232952_10153661903321417_460079461073600025_n

The restaurant belongs to a friend of mine Leslie, whose grandmother was famous for making Nyonya Kuih and Nasi Lemak and he has learned the recipe that was passed down to his aunt.

Nyonya Kuih and Kelupis ~~

 

2016_0522_10493400

2016_0522_10441000

Quite spicy and the rice is more on the softer side ~~

 

2016_0522_103549002016_0522_10304000

It's still on the soft opening stage - so their menu is very limited ~~ fried noodles and kway teow is on the menu but might take some time ~~ they also have fried curry popiah and prawn fritters so be sure to try those too.

 

WhatsApp-Image-20160524

Curry potatoes spring rolls ~~~ yum!

Chinese style prawn fritters ~~
