If you are tired of buffets and you want a place with great ambience, good food and artisan desserts with proper coffee and tea – you should check out the Ramadan Feast for 2 at Alter Ego – one of Brunei’s most beautiful cafes.

Beautiful might actually be an understatement as when you walk into Alter Ego – you really feel like you’ve been transported to another world.

From the Jazzy feel of the brick walls ~~

It is indeed a lovely place to just bask in the ambience while having a nice cup of tea or coffee ~~ but today we are here to check out their Ramadan Feast for 2!

You will start with Medjool dates ~~ which are plump and delicious ~~ mmmm ~~~


2018_0528_18495900

Each person will then get a trio of appetizers ~ Soup of The Day on the right – Chicken vol au vent (baked small hollow case of puff pastry filled with creamy tender chicken) and sun dried tomato on top of cream cheese crostini ~~ mmm ~~~ delicious bite sizes to prepare you for the main sharing platter!


2018_0528_19170300

This sharing platter can actually be shared by 3 person in my opinion as it’s a pretty big platter!

Mmmm ~~ what a delicious looking platter ~~


2018_0528_19154800

You will have a small basket of pita bread ~~ this is for you to dip with the hummus ~~


2018_0528_19173600

Chickpea hummus is a great dip for the flat breads ~~


2018_0528_19173000

To be enjoyed with these perfectly chargrilled vegetables ~~~


2018_0528_19172400

For carbs ~~ it’s crushed Idaho potatoes with salmon salad ~~~


2018_0528_19171600

For proteins ~~ this is the oven baked baby chicken with honey cajun spices ~~ I loved how moist the chicken is and perfectly seasoned. Thumbs up for this!


2018_0528_19175000

Last but not least is this double braised beef short ribs with rosemary herbs and pumpkin puree ~ tenderlicious!!!


2018_0528_19502300

You will then be served a trio of bite sized desserts ~~~ so both of you will get a taste of all three!


2018_0528_19511300

Mmmmm Gula Melaka Cake ~~ *drools*


2018_0528_19511700

I can never resist a good blueberry cheesecake!!!


2018_0528_19512200

Lastly ~~ if you love Eclairs ~~~ how about some Salted Caramel filled Eclairs to end your meal? *OMG*


DSCF2101[5]

You can choose to have coffee or tea to finish your meal ~~ I personally can drink coffee any time of the day ~ lol ~~ Alter Ego is serious about their coffees ~their coffee machine; the Gravimetric Black Eagle can cost more than an entry level car – one of the top of the line Espresso Machines and their coffee grinders are top of the range Mythos grinders too. You will definitely enjoy their coffee.


2018_0528_18523400

Ahhhhh a lovely cup of latte please ~~~


2018_0528_20031800

If you are not a coffee person or worry that you will have trouble sleeping – they have tea range from ETTE – combining heritage with tea ~~ mmmmm ~~~~


AE Ramadan Feast for 2

The Ramadan Feast is actually $49 for Two person which works out to 24.50 per person but if you use the bank card discounts – you can get up to 30 percent off on certain days! That will make it only $17.15 per person! What a bargain! On other days – you can get up to 15% depending on which bank cards you have when making payment.

Now I have to say one of the dishes I ordered the most when I am in Alter Ego is their healthy wholesome grain bowls ~~ basically quinoa with a lovely serving of mixed grilled vegetables ~ then with either roasted chicken or beef steak ~


2018_0528_18553700

This is the new grain bowl on the menu ~~ specially launched this month ~~ a moist salmon confit ~~ mmmm ~~ a new selection headache for me next time!
