New Star Box Cafe 


A friend of mine dined at this new cafe called New Star Box Cafe and it’s located at the Kiulap, not far from CA Mohd. During the fasting month, they are having a special promotion especially on set meals and the prices are quite reasonable if you ask me. My friend, Fazizul, was high praises for the cafe and highly recommended others to give this a shot.

They even have kids value meal for the month of Ramadhan, going at $5 which is a good steal. The dishes do change for the set meals on a daily basis as well. If you are planning to do a buffet gathering for 30 pax, the management can also cater to your needs.

I will pay this cafe on the 3rd week of Ramadhan and try out their dishes for Sungkai. You can follow them on instagram @newstarboxcafengrill

Izz Zara Bakery 

Formerly known as Hana Bakery, this home-made cakes have been household name for the past few years or so. Why do I say that? Because the orders just automatically comes in during Ramadhan. And due to the overwhelming response since I posted on my IG this afternoon, I’m happy to say that Izz Zara Bakery has extended the deadline for orders from 26th June to Sunday 28th June.

The online bakery is seasonal and only active during Ramadhan to cater for Hari Raya orders. The reason for the early deadline is to ensure that all the cakes and orders are delivered on time especially during the festive season.

My favourite is still the original Tapak Kuda (nutella) and now they have introduced a few new flavours such as milo and maltesers. Yum yum 😀 The Cake Lapis Durian and Nutella will be a big hit as always. One of the interesting cake is the Crackers Cheese cake.

Do download the order form, you can click here or for more info, you can whatsapp at 8776 898 or 7102 138. Do follow their instagram at @izz_zara_bakery for updates too.

OGH Sungakai Promotion 

Ah yes. The usual visit is back to OGH. OGH as you know is a household name for hotel and cuisine. Orchid Garden Hotel was one of the pioneers to kick start the Sungkai Buffet and it became the trend setter for many other local restaurants in Brunei ever since. What’s great about OGH is the wide variety and choices it has. The price now has been lowered compared to last year and it’s now only $24.80 which is a superb deal.

It was the first time also that I tried the soup station and man, I regretted for not trying it out for the past few years. The soup itself is the bomb and I mixed it with chicken strips and Hati Buyah.. and a hint of sambal penyet for the extra spicy kick. I love that combo 😀 So please, don’t ignore the soup station and I’m already craving for it as I’m typing this out.

The main courses are aplenty as well and not forgetting the murtabak, luk-luk, rojak and laksa station and of course, the soup station. The set up is slightly different as they located the dessert area near the entrance to allow better movement of the crowd.

There will be 20% discount for HSBC Credit + Debit cardholders on all Sungkai Dine-in promotion @ Goldiana Cafe and Lounge and this also applies for the Vanda Chinese Restaurant. The discounts are applicable if you spend a maximum amount of BND 300 on a single receipt. There’s also a weekly lucky draw prize to be won.

And last of all, they are also having a “Creative Photo Shot Contest” where the winner can win a Samsung S6 Edge. Simply dine in at their restaurant and tag @ogh_brunei with the hashtag #OGHSUNGKAISAHURRAMADHAN2015 on your IG. Simple 😀
