Pelicana Chicken

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in lifestyle, food

 


Have you tried Pelicana Chicken outlet in Brunei?
 


I tried the Peli Platter from Pelicana Chicken – This is enough to serve four pax. They also have the bigger platter for 6 pax.
 

I headed over to Pelicana last year as I’m a sucker for chicken wings and Pelicana caught my attention. For your information, Pelicana is a Korean franchise that is known for their fried chicken with seasoning. The brand has been very strong not just in Korea but in international waters. Just imagine there are over 3,000 outlets of Pelicana alone. So it’s good to see Pelicana to have its presence in Brunei Darussalam as all of us are already accustomed to food & beverage franchises.

The first outlet so far is at Setia Kenangan II, Kiulap and there will be opening another one this year. I’ve already visited the outlet a few times because of its consistency and I love seasoned fried chicken. I simply can eat wings all day *yum yum*

So let me share you a bit on what Pelicana are pretty known for – well for one thing, it’s their fried chicken being marinated with different selection of delicious sauces from Korea. Yes, the ingredients are imported to make sure there is an authentic taste of Korean flavour in a fast food concept.

It may seem like a fast-food joint but the preparation shows other wise. Their fried chicken are prepared fresh from the kitchen and the quality is still pretty decent.

The Brunei outlet offers up to six selection of speciality sauces that ranges from Original Crunchy, Charcoal BBQ Peli, the Super Hot Spicy Peli and the popular coated Cheese and Cheese flavour (always popular among the locals).

Pelicana Chicken also have their own selection of side dishes that diners can order to feast with their delicious fried chicken. Musaengchae (seasoned radish) and Miyeok Muchim (seaweed salad) is the two side dishes that really goes well with the fried chicken.

On my last visit with Kurapak and Khaliq, we had a feast where we ordered a platter which is value for money. Three of us couldn’t finish it that we had to take away the food.

I also had the pleasure to speak to Sharon Choo, the owner of Pelicana Chicken, and she’s happy with the response from the public as they are quite accustomed to the taste of Korean flavoured fried chicken.

You can follow their instagram account @pelicanachickenbn and Facebook for updates. It’s a new generated account so do bear with them.

Looks good indeed
 


This is the charcoal BBQ Yangnyeom – spicy much but this is very tasty
 

 


I caught Khaliq off guard as he tried the spicy one. He still loved it 😀
 


There’s a small private room on the 1st floor
 


The first outlet has two floors. This is the upper floor. I think I was the first customer there then as I came as it opened. Super hungry 😀
 


Good seatings upstairs too
 


My favourite seating area on the upper floor
 

 


… and my second last meal at the particular seating was with Jolene back in January. See you this weekend 😀
 


They also serve burgers

The Cheesy flavour is one of the hot sellers at Pelicana and I can understand why
 

 

 

Brunei Gastronomy Week

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in lifestyle, Social News

 

 

I attended the launch of the Brunei Gastronomy Week held at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism building yesterday. It was launched by Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Ali bin Haji Apong, the Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism.

Now what can you expect during Brunei Gastronomy Week which will run from 22nd to 26th February? Selected cafes and restaurants will introduce local cuisines in a more modernized and sophisticated way. I managed to view and did some tasting on the samples given yesterday after the launch. There’s something definitely to look forward to next week.

The Brunei Gastronomy Week is an initiative by the Brunei Tourism Board under the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism and also coinciding with the upcoming 33rd National Day celebrations. They have collaborated with local cafes and restaurants and even Royal Brunei Airlines.

There were dishes such as the Bamboo Chicken, Acar Buah-Buahan, Sup Kembayau, Sup Tahai, Nasi Katok, Soto Brunei and many more.

On 23rd February, Royal Brunei Airlines will be serving local cuisines in all regional flights and the travel agents will work closely to help to promote to their passengers who will be visiting Brunei Darussalam.

The Brunei Gastronomy Week will also be judged based on the given criteria to give incentives to the participating restaurants and cafes. The judges will make their rounds and sample the dishes served and the winners will be announced at the Tourism Industry Award ceremony in April.

This is a very good initiative by Brunei Tourism Board and this will help to create more awareness on local cuisines and also promoting the restaurants and cafes as well as improving the quality of the dishes.

The Brunei Gastronomy Week is a way to celebrate and create awareness on Bruneian cuisine, a way to encourage more hotels and restaurants to serve Bruneian cuisine in a more sophisticated way, to improve on the state and elevate the presentation of Bruneian dishes that be part of a fine dining experience and it’s a way to provide a unique Bruneian gastronomical experience to visitors within and outside Brunei.

Kenali Makanan Kitani

Sometime it’s always good to go to basics. When it comes to food, it’s also good to savour the traditional Brunei food that are accustomed to. Seasons Restaurant did just that by having a food promotion awareness dubbed “Kenali Makanan Kitani”.

If you are into ambuyat, then do try out Seasons KNK promotion. I’m surprised to see ikan tenggiri panggang and this shows how local the food choices are. For me, I love the daging rendang and the ayam masak merah.

The presentation of the dessert area had been given much thought. They have nice labels too such as Tarap Mousse, Calak Berlauk and Kueh Bom to name a few.

The dinner buffet, which was launched yesterday and will run until October 29, is available every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 7pm to 10pm. It is priced at $28 per adult and $16 for children below 12. Aside from that Seasons will also be offering a hi-tea buffet from today until October 30 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2.30pm to 5.30pm at $15 per adult and $10 per child.

RBC Dining Privilege Card Members can also enjoy a 10 per cent discount off their bill when they present their card. For enquiries and reservations, please call 2422291 or 2422292 or the RBC Hotline at 7293848.

You can also follow the Seasons Instagram page at @seasonsrestaurantbrunei for daily updates and promotions. The restaurant is located at Level 2, Centrepoint Hotel, Gadong.
