15.05.2011 @ Pondok Sari Wangi, Sengkurong Branch, Brunei. The restaurant is so welcoming for big family & group, huge spaces & comfortable setting to suits everyone. The place is clean, neat & tidy.
Pondok Sari Wangi sengkurong branch is specialized in Padang Cuisine. It offers an array selection of mouth watering Padang cuisines on the menu from chicken, beef, fish, prawns, cuttlefish, vegetables to the famous sambal hijua, all cooked in real authentic padang way that i would say it is the most delectable padang cuisine i have ever had. other than a vast selection of Padang food, they offer some Asian delicacies to suits your every needs.
On to our orders. We started the night with our special friend, the humble Mr. Ridwan, the owner. He was so kind to joined us for dinner and introducing us new dishes and in additional, he selected a couple of new dishes for dry run, added so much food, the feeling of excitement seeing all those scrumptious food coming out one by one on the table! They all look gorgeous and delicious! All food served on the table in total of 15 dishes. Ridwan said "
I would love to high-light my top 3 dishes that you would die for, the signature dish "Daging Rendang". It cooked so gently to the level of softness to the beef that you could easily pull apart, dry but not over cooked by breaking off the meat, so yummy. " Dendeng Lombok" oh..la..la... is another dish to die for! When i had my first bite, its like a magic to my taste bud that brings me to another planet! full of texture, so tasty with the belado toppings, so delicious! the beef texture does look a little hard from outside, but don't fool by the look, b'cos the taste is better than it looks. " Jengkol Belado" if you're a jengkol lover, this is the dish that will not go wrong. the stinky jengkol fruit that deep-fried with hot oil and cooked in belado style, goes very soothing with the jengkol stinky taste itself. I would love to have another plate of jengkol for sure.
Other than my top 3 dishes that i choose, those i don't mentioned are equally fantastic bombastic! like the "Ayam Pop", is another improved dish that soon will be on the menu, Babat Kalio, KiKil Kalio, Sambal Hijau with Ikan Bilis & others are all excellent.
After all mouth-watering 15 dishes, i have to say that the Padang Cuisine at Pondok Sari wangi is the BEST in Brunei!! They are deliciously excellent!!! We will sure go back for more!! No need to elaborate more about the food, you just have to experience yourself to agree with me.
