PSW Jerudong

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News

 

Sungkai-ing at PSW Jerudong 
 

 


Pondok Sari Wangi at Jerudong. A must visit.
 

Pondok Sari Wangi, renowned for their variety of Indonesian cuisine, has their Sungkai Promotion at $20 for adults and $16 for children only at Jerudong outlet. Now don’t get me wrong.. Different branches have different price range and such. The one I visited was the one at their newest branch at Jerudong (just near first area of the Jerudong Park food court).

The Jerudong branch has a bigger venue and it made a mark when it had its first wedding dinner event at the 200 plus capacity restaurant. What I love about the Jerudong branch that it has a mini aquarium where you will enjoy the freshness of the seafood items. We were in luck as we had the butter milk crab as part of their sungkai buffet.

The difference I found there from other places was that the crowd wasn’t too much in the beginning as they trickled in phases. Hence we had an easier time getting our food from the buffet line. The buffet itself had items like mee goreng telor, baby kailan (Pranika love this dish) in oyster sauce, crabs, prawns along with appropriate sides like fried tahu and tempe to accompany them.

I was especially drawn to the desserts section where traditional items were served in an appetizing manner. Among all, I tried this item which I had never had at Pondok – the kecang hitam. It was a red bean-based dessert and I liked it so much that I had two servings of it.

The people slowly started coming in around 7 and it was just a good timing so queuing was not a problem. The staff also caught my attention as they were attentive to the needs of each guest.

Great atmosphere, dedicated staff and delicious food. What else can we ask for? If you’re still deciding where to go for Sungkai tonight or tomorrow or day after, Pondok Sari Wangi (Jerudong) should be on your list. Let’s not forget my favourite dish on their ala carte menu – Beef Rendang and Telur Belado.

Donations to orphans at Kg Rimba 
 

 

Due to overwhelming support and donations received by organising committee of “Food and Goods Drive” for the Old Folks House Seria last week, Fun Bee Park have arranged some of the food items and goods to share to young orphans residing at Kg Rimba.

The orphans, aged between three to ten years old, were delighted to receive the gift hampers packed with stationeries and goodies to prepare them for school.

This donation was part of a charity campaign with organising committee Fun Bee Park and its customers as well as the generous members of the public.

In a speech by the Creative Directress and Manager of Fun Bee Park, Cecilia Lee, said that the event is held to show the love and care for the young orphans, and reminder that they are not forgotten and will never be. “With this gift hampers, we hope to bring cheers to the orphans and as well as sharing goods for their further use,” said Lee.

The donations were contributed by parents and guardians of the children going to Fun Bee Park as well as the local community who heard and read the post about this drive.

A total of 25 orphans received the generous contribution, which was handed over by registered volunteers and Cecilia Lee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aside from the gift giving, Fun Bee Park’s artist hosted creative painting activity using non-toxic acrylic paints with the young orphans. To bring out big smiles from the young orphans, volunteers and Fun Bee Park staffs played team building games and bubble play.

Lee also organised lunch set while one of the volunteers Deirdre Chin pre-baked Brownie Fudge and Cheese cake along with his brother and friend to share to the orphans as well as their guardians.

“We are delighted with the response from our customers and members of the public and really appreciate their generosity and time in helping us to fill up gift bags. We also want to thank Sekolah Rendah Rimba 1 school administration for allowing us to use their school premises for this event. Together, our helping hands have put big smile on the faces of young orphans and their respective guardians,” said Anna May Bunyi of Fun Bee Park.

The event ended with group photo to commemorate a fun day with orphans and their guardians, volunteers, and organizing committee.

Never trust a skinny cook

Pondok Sari Wangi
 

 

This is so far the best Indonesian cuisine in Brunei. I’ve seen many around in Brunei but Pondok Sari Wangi, hands down is the best. Maybe I’m biased because I love their beef rendang and telur beladur. Of course, their signature dish is the ayam penyet.

For the month of Ramadhan, Pondok Sari Wangi is offering Sungkai buffet and it has been an overwhelming response from the beginning. So my suggestion is to do advance booking to avoid disappointment. Their best dish is definitely the crab (different flavours) but only served on alternate days. So if you are craving for crabs, make sure that you call them for information.

The buffet line is served at all three outlets of Pondok Sari Wangi (Gadong, Sengkurong and Citis Square). If you prefer to order ala carte or set menu, it’s only available after 7:30pm.

Awesome grill stuff 
 

 

Have you tried dining at Kimchi Restaurant? If you taste bud feels for Korean food, check out Kimchi Restaurant. I am a big fan of their BBQ stuff. On my last visit a few nights ago, it was totally packed. To be honest, it has been fully booked for the past few nights. I had to do advance booking to ensure my slot. So you know what it means when it’s advance booking time. It means the restaurant is really good value for money and also delicious.

I brought Coey as my Sungkai guest and it was her first Sungkai outing too. What is her rating? She was impressed with the marinated meats for the BBQ grill which is part of the All-You-Can-Eat from the Kimchi menu. They also served the usual small appetizers for those choosing the all-you-can-eat menu.

They also offer Ramadhan vouchers. For take-away customers, there will be a 15% discount from 2pm to 5pm daily during Ramadhan.

Follow their IG on @kimchibrunei for updates or their Facebook Page. Hurry since there’s only less than two weeks left before the end of Ramadhan 😀

Shabuliciuos 
 

 

A fan of shabu-shabu and you know there have been many restaurants that offer hot pot stuff. Now they have two branches – one at Batu Bersurat and the other at Delima. I sungkai-ed this time at the Batu Bersurat branch.

They provide different kinds of Set Meals to your liking during the month of Ramadhan. I opted for the ala carte since I don’t really eat that much. But for those who choose to have ala carte, Shabulicious offer 15% discount only during Ramadhan. And guess what? The 15% discount deal ends until 2am. So which means you can also enjoy sahur at their establishment. The last order will be at 1am. Tomorrow (Tuesday, 8th July) they will be having a 30% discount for all BIBD Credit Card holders. So swipe away and enjoy the 30% discount.

Visit our branches Shabulicious Delima Square and Shabulicious Restaurant, Batu Bersurat, Gadong and dial their hotlines: 2338333 (Delima) 2451000 (Batu Bersurat).
