Brunei Food Hunt: Chop Jing Chew’s Roti Cheese
When dining in Chop Jing Chew, Brunei’s favorite place for tea, I would always go for my usual – Roti Kacang Kahwin – the delicious sweet ground peanuts bun, served with a slice of butter and kaya. Lately, a new contender has arrived, The Roti Cheese. which I heard, rivals the Roti Kacang Kahwin. My foodie instincts drove me to the place at 6:30 AM but ALAS! They don’t have it early in the morning so I had to come back at 3pm in the afternoon – fresh buns off the oven time for Chop Jing Chew
This is what the Roti Cheese looks like – basically a bun with a slice of cheese on top, stuffed with cream cheese and baked in the oven. When hot, the cream cheese inside is gooey and goes well with the bun.
Naturally, I ordered Roti Cheese Kahwin, which includes an additional slice of butter and kaya (coconut jam) to complement the oozing gooey cream cheese – the result is an OMG Delicious combination! Why didn’t I try it long time ago! SEDAP!!
I also tried out this Roti Kahwin Cheese – which replaces the butter with a slice of cheese – not as good as the original Roti Kahwin though.
Note: Friend asked me what’s the difference between Roti Kahwin Cheese and Roti Cheese Kahwin – the Roti Kahwin cheese is this one – the classic roti kahwin kuning.. replacing the butter with a slice of cheese – whole the Roti Cheese Kahwin – is the cream cheese bun, with butter and kaya~ Chop Jing Chew Jargon! lol
This is their Roti Cheese Panjang – which is like cheese bread rolls, it’s alright but nowhere near as heavenly as Roti Cheese.
My friend was caught by this beautiful looking roll and tried this. Not bad – spongy creamy and beautiful for instagram. Girls will love this.
I would say – who needs macarons and scones for tea – when you can have this delicious Roti Cheese Kahwin or the classic Roti Kacang Kahwin, served with Teh Tarik (Tea Latte) kurang manis at a fraction of the price. Cheap and nice ~~~ Let’s all go to Jin Chew for high tea! Best time to go is right before 3pm for the fresh out of the oven buns!!!
