Brunei Sungkai 2018: High Frequency Ramadan Set Menu

DSCF0734[5]

High Frequency has been one of the hip places to go for coffee or dates, or ideal for a group of friends to catch up – while having lots of artistic creative décor for you to Instagram. In my opinion, they are considered the pioneer for the coffee and cafe scene in Brunei.

This year – I had the pleasure of having their Ramadan Set together with Kristal FM DJs and Brunei Foodie Marul.

After so many Sungkai buffets, I definitely look forward to a nice gourmet dinner for a change. High Frequency’s management has always tried their best to source out good quality ingredients to ensure the most delicious food is served. They have two sets for you to choose – the Savour or the Lavish Set. The Savour is $28 while the Lavish is $38. Remember to take advantage of bank discounts of up to 30 percent off on certain days ~ and a potential 15 percent off daily if you go platinum!

Dates are provided for everyone of course ~~~ plump juicy dates ~~~~

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

Now let’s take a look at the available choices of main course for the Savour set – you can pick one from these 3 as your main course.

The Poulet Cordon Bleu is basically rolled chicken stuffed with beef bacon and cheese, then coated with bread crumbs and fried. It is then served is a special creamy mushroom sauce. Oooh yes ~~*smacks lips*


DSCF2526

This is the delicious boeuf bourguignon, a French style beef stew that takes quite a long time to make! It is served with a very delicious mash – which is actually not potato – but actually cauliflower mash/puree! I must say I enjoyed the mash very very much – and it’s less guilty than potato! Win Win!


DSCF2522

If you are into seafood pasta ~ then you’ll enjoy their spaghetti clams vongole, with mussels and served in a crustacean sauce. A light main course for those who prefer a lighter meal~ I personally would take the chicken or the beef ~ nom nom ~~


DSCF2565

Dessert for Savour is a classic Crème brulee ~~ a creamy custard – with caramelized burnt sugar tops

Now – the Lavish set of three is of course more expensive by $10 but as you can see – the ingredients are more on the posh expensive side ~~ so it’s worth it if you want to splurge a little ~ You can choose one of them as your mains for the set ~~


DSCF2543

Fettuccine pasta, served with butter baked prawns and salmon ~~ *swoons* I know this is supposed to be the lighter mains – but how can I say no to this? I love the fact that they peeled the prawn meat from the shell to make it easier to eat ~~ so you remain elegant while enjoying this dish ~~


DSCF2539

This is their carved roast prime beef, which to me is perfectly seasoned, has a decent fatty crust from the grill! Served with rocket with roasted tomato salad and yummy sauteed potatoes! Make sure you tell them your desired doneness ~~~ I always go for medium rare ~~ oooh yes ~~ juicy steaks!


DSCF2514

Last but not least of the three, is this gorgeous looking seafood platter! Grilled sea bass, New Zealand Mussels, Flower Prawns, baby squid ~~ well seasoned – Oh my ~~~! Aquaman’s seafood army is now ready to be destroyed by the super foodie ~~ Prepare to meet your doom Aquaman’s Army!!


DSCF2562

Ooooooo how could you say no to Tiramisu!!! This is the dessert for the lavish set ~~
