We can’t seem to get enough of cheesy goodness so KFC Brunei is bringing an Italian twist to their latest cheese offering, the KFC Cheezy Romano Crunch!


DSCF4601

KFC’s popular cheese series continues hit after hit, now with the introduction of a premium Romano cheese sauce to be enjoyed with KFC’s signature Hot & Spicy chicken.


DSCF4609

Transporting a taste from the nation known and loved for their cheese creations, Cheezy Romano Crunch offers an Italian touch - a combination of intense flavours of the premium Italian Romano cheese and the signature crunchy KFC Hot & Spicy chicken, ahhhh how can you resist this!?


DSCF4625

KFC Cheezy Romano Crunch is available a la carte from only BND 4.20 or in a combo meal which includes the 2-piece Hot & Spicy chicken, imported Cheezy Romano sauce together with KFC’s signature sides of coleslaw, whipped potato and a regular carbonated drink from only BND 7.00.

“It is no doubt that good food brings people together. That is the idea behind this latest creation by KFC, inspired by KFC’s fans call for more of our cheese products. Expect an Italian ‘cheeziness’ when you savour our Cheezy Romano Crunch, as the special Romano cheese sauce will get you swooning. You can be sure of a satisfying ‘cheezy’ experience and an even greater experience when enjoyed with friends or soon to be friends”, said Jaymee Lau from marketing department, KFC Brunei.

Let the Cheeziness rain down on those spicy crispy fried chicken! Arghhhhh!! YESSHHH!!! LET IT RAIN! LET IT FLOOD!


DSCF4658

Seriously though – that is a real piece of heaven I’m holding here ~~ crispy spicy fried chicken bathed in premium Italian Romano cheese ~~ I’m drooling as I’m typing this ~~~~ Mama mia!


DSCF4641

Cubalah sekarang indeed! You better grab them before they sell out! In Brunei, they say the early foodie catches the good food and gets to Instagram them first ~~ lol ~~


DSCF4600

They also introduced a new bucket combo meal called the Bucket Bersama ~~~ did you also notice something cheezy in there??? Remember the last time Brunei destroyed them too fast and they were sold out really fast? Like the old Terminator movie – I imagined them saying “I’ll be back ~~”


DSCF4644

They have a 17.90 version (5 piece chicken) and a 28.90 (9 piece chicken) for bigger families or people with huge appetites!


DSCF4577

Both the buckets will come with signature whipped potatoes, soft drinks and of course the long time missed CHEEZY BALLS are BACKKK!! – this time its their limited edition Sour Cream and Onion flavour!! Ooooh yesshh!


DSCF4652

These must be eaten HOT and you will be rewarded with a long stringy cheesy goodness!!!


DSCF4649

Now does that plate of gorgeous KFC bring a smile to your face? Mmmmm ~~~ now I’m hungry!


DSCF2550

Wash that down with some nice cup of iced milo ~~~

Or with something citrusy like their sjora smooth flavour fusion drink which goes well to wash down those yummy twisters!

Brunei Restaurants: Berry Wan Hotpot Centrepoint Branch

DSCF4079

Berry Wan Hot Pot is actually a household name in Brunei,  starting as a hot pot restaurant since I was a little kid at Damuan. Recently they opened a new branch at the back of Centrepoint next to the flower shop and I was excited to check them out!


DSCF3982

They took over the spot from Kitaro and revamped it into a place for you to enjoy hotpot ~~ now let’s go inside and check them out ~~


DSCF3973

A pretty comfortable and spacious ambience with very cute quotes about food on the walls ~~


DSCF3974

This section  has a view of the carpark ~~


DSCF3975

Gotta love the quotes on the walls ~~


DSCF3978

For more privacy ~ you can go for their specially enclose rooms ~~ be sure to call ahead and book ~~~ this is the bigger room of the two ~


DSCF3980

Here’s the other vip room ~~ perfect for a small group of friends or family ~~


DSCF3984

What’s interesting is the concept of having four types of soups in one table instead of individual soups of your own ~~ that way its easier to share and try as much different soups  ~~ if you don’t want fours – they have a different container for two soups only ~~


DSCF3985

With so much soup to choose from ~ having four separate sections to try four soups is perfect!


DSCF3991

Ooh yes ~~ pour that White Tom Yam Soup ~~~


WhatsApp Image 2017-08-12 at 7.12.28 PM

I’m a fan of laksas so I ordered two different laksas ~~ and also herbal soup and tom yam for a slightly different taste ~~


DSCF4031

Wifey and I decided to have a double date with these two lovebirds ~ Becky and CJ ~


DSCF3976

As with all hot pot restaurants ~ the fun is always making your own special sauce~!

DSCF4002

This prawn and chili flakes condiment is a favourite of mine ~ mmmm ~~~


DSCF4009

DSCF3995

DSCF4014

My sauce of the night ~ this will be really good with those Australian beef and lamb slices! *droools* After we finished making our sauces ~~ our drinks arrived ~~ ahhh perfect timing!


DSCF4029

For drinks ~ Mary was in a mood for avocados so she went for an avocado smoothie ~~


DSCF4041

This was CJ’s cookies and cream milkshake ~~ but he was too shy to pose with his drink ~~


DSCF4076

It was also a pleasant surprise to know that their Cold Pressed juices are $5 only. I think the most affordable at the moment ~~ here’s my apple and celery cold pressed juice ~~

DSCF4023

DSCF4072

The Mixed Meat set ~~a mix of chicken slices, Australian lamb slices and Australian beef slices ~~~ I can easily eat a few platters of this myself! HAHAHA!


DSCF4169

I usually cook the beef and lamb for only a few seconds ~~ until slightly medium done ~~ then enjoy with my sauces ~~~ ahhhhh now you know why I can eat so much of these ~~


DSCF4148

I was so happy to see that they have fresh whole sea bass on the menu! They will fillet it for you ~~ and I tell you ~~ having this on a hotpot is divine!

I have to say ~~ the Singapore Laksa soup is sooooooo gooood ~~ and I decided to put the fish head into this! *SPLASH* Down it goes!


DSCF4191

Be sure not to overcook your sea bass! Oooooh my gosh ~~ succulent flesh of the sea bass ~~ *cries for joy*

Now I know fish pastes are pretty common nowadays ~ but Berry Wan’s version has century egg in it ~~ OMG OMG!

DSCF4081

Overall  ~~ it was an enjoyable double date experience for us and we would definitely come back again – especially for THAT Singapore Laksa Soup ~~ and I’m still drooling about the sea bass swimming in that Laksa soup till now ~~ we might give other types of soup a try ~~ such as the Curry Laksa  and maybe their MALA (super spicy) soup a try! Prices here are also reasonable as well
