Tandoor treats 


For the first time, Tandoor.com Restaurant has finally introduced a buffet line to the delight of their patrons. Did you know that I frequent this restaurant a lot of times? Why? I love the food and I love my favourite sitting spot where I have the view of the mosque and the Kiulap roundabout.

To my surprise, a friend of mine bought over Tandoor and introduced new menu. For now, I’m just gonna focused with the Sungkai promotion. The selections are just enough to satisfy your craves and perhaps, the steal of the day was the Lamb Mandhi. That totally took me by surprise because it was so tasty and the lamb was pretty tender with nice flavour to it. The chef must have marinated it and cooked it to the right temperature. Oh yea, you will need to eat it with all the sauces given – green mint sauce, garlic sauce and their spicy chill sauce. The best combo so far if you ask me.

Tandoor also provide some Italian dishes such as the pasta and the pizza. The pizza is quite unique as well with a great texture. Awesome stuff!!

I’m definitely coming back in the 3rd week or so after I finished all my rounds of Sungkai-ing in other places. Great food and lovely ambience as well. Thank you, Nizam, for hosting.

This is one delicious dish I must say. The best I tried so far. I’m hooked.

Make sure that you get all the sauces to go with the lamb. What a combo!!!

Premium dates in Brunei 

Al Alwani Dates at Arcade area of The Empire Hotel

Are you fans of dates? I grew up eating it every time when I flew to Jeddah during my childhood days. It’s like eating prune but with a different solid texture and sweeter. Back in the old days, dates will have seeds inside just like a rambutan. Trend kept changing and now they offer dates with almond nuts inside so you can simply eat the whole dates and plus almonds are quite popular among dates lovers.

I’m not aware of the brands of dates until I paid a visit to Al Alwani Dates store at The Empire Hotel & Country Club. Run by young Bruneian bloods, they were able to survey what was lacking in terms of consumer goods available in Brunei. Yes, so many years there is a premium chocolate brand that have been existing in Brunei. Another premium brand chocolate also made its mark a few years ago. Today Al Alwani entered the same category to offer Bruneian customers a different variety of choice.

PAN Foods Sdn Bhd is a local premium distributor for halal products and they are also the official distributors of Al Alwani Dates in Brunei Darussalam. The prices do range and they are nicely packed in boxes, ranging from BND 8 to BND 80. I love the packaging for a start and this is ideal for giveaways especially during our festive season. Of course, dates are also very common during Ramadhan for consumption.

Apart from the dates, they have small selection of premium Ajwa chocolates too. What I can’t wait are the new flavour dates that are coming pretty soon. By next week hopefully, you will choices of flavour such as coconut, lemon-mint, hazelnut, orange and others. Awesome!!!

For those who wants to buy hampers, Al Alwani Dates have many to offer and they come in different packaging and prices too. In the near future, the company hopes to locate resellers so the premium dates will be available at local department stores (hopefully Hua Ho).

For more information, you can call 261 0623 and also follow their IG at @alwanidates. As for the Al Alwani Dates store, it is located at the Arcade area of The Empire Hotel & Country Club. You will have to walk past Zest and Crimson Square.
