Brunei Sungkai 2017: The Silk Road Restaurant

DSCF9505

The Silk Road Restaurant only recently opened and is located just right opposite the Seri Q-Lap mall where the cinema is. This is one of the new places to check out this year for Sungkai!


DSCF9509

The ambience does live up to its name as you can see a very oriental feel to the decor ~


DSCF9499DSCF9500

It looks like one of those oriental heritage cafes you would find in Penang or Malacca ~~


DSCF9709

My guests for the night, Karen, Farah and Michelle ~~ Silk Road cuisine is a combination of Chinese and Malay cuisine just to give you an idea of what to expect. Let’s have a look at what’s on the menu shall we?

First up ~~ the drinks station ~~ ooo ~~~ did anyone notice that jar of milo ~~?


DSCF9511

mmmmm ~~~ pour me some of that please ~~ iced cold milo!


DSCF9563

These drinks called Kathirah are pretty special and pretty as well ~~ kinda like a mix of Chinese tongsui meets bandung ~~~ pretty goood!

While restaurants serve dates usually to let your break your fast ~~ The Silk Road Restaurant offers alternatives to dates like these pickled plums or dried fruits ~~ *mouth waters*

A closer up view to make you drool ~~~ these things tend to wet our appetites to eat more!

The Silk Road Restaurant’s buffet is $15 for adults and $10 for kids ~~ considering that you have Peking Duck and Lamb Mandhi alone is already a super bargain for that price. Do follow them on Instagram @thesilkroadbn to check the latest updates of what’s on the menu for the night to make your bookings!


Call 2230471 to make your reservations ~~ it was full house the night I went!
