Sungkai at The Atrium Restaurant, The Empire Hotel & Country Club.

Very much recommended. It’s got great views of the sunset, peaceful and less crowded too. As you can see they have an extensive buffet line too. Although a bit on the high side, I would say it’s worth it. Sungkai is $28 per adult and $14 per child. Choices varies from Iranian Chicken Kebab, Lamb, Massaman Curry, Stir-fried Mussel with Szechuan Sauce, Ambuyat, Murtabak Station, Barbeque Mixed Gril and many more.

They’ve got yummy desserts too like Chocolate Triangle, Hazelnut Praline Cake, Pear Charlotte, Semolina Pudding and other varieties. After you’re done with Sungkai, you can go down to the Ground level to enjoy hot drinks and their famous Cake Batik in an Arabic themed lounge which opens until 11pm daily.

Hari Raya cakes are also available at the Lobby Lounge for takeaways until 11 September. The cakes include the ever popular Empire Kek Batik, Kek Batik Vico, Kek Lapis Nutella, Kek Lapis Cranberry, Kek Lapis Prune and Kek Lapis Betawi. Empire Cake gift box is also for sale with choices of 4 flavors for only $25 per box.

Sungkai at Orchid Garden Hotel.

The Sungkai Ramadhan buffet at the Goldiana Café promised to be “a grand feast” and, true enough, lived up to its reputation. The spread was delightful to say the least, with dishes of every kind to tantalize even the fussiest of tastebuds (like mine).

To start, I was impressed by the wide array of starters, and choosing which to try was no easy feat. You would think it gets easier, but really that was the easy part. Because once you get past the starters, an even wider selection of dishes and specialties awaits. The promotion boasts a weekly selected menu cycle with over 100 items served every day and tonight, we were treated to the famed roti prata and chicken curry, the to-die-for Penang Mamak soup (which made me wish I had hollow legs), soto and bakso, hot plates and claypots, an assortment of fried goodies and dim sum, just to name a few. And did I mention the delectable spread of desserts sprawled over two stations? Or that you can wash it all down with your choice of bandung, teh tarik, ice lemon tea or cordials? You get the idea.

If you’re looking to be spoilt for choice and rewarded with every bite, this is the place to go.

Sungkai at i-Lotus with the Social Media gang.

The setting was simply nice. The big white tent is definitely one of it’s kind in Brunei. It can at least hold 400 diners. The food is as usual not disappointing and now they’ve got 3 buffet line. The hotplate section is now much bigger, so it’s less crowded. Call in advance to book your table. If you do it on the same day, it’s most likely you won’t get a table. 

Thank you @joannajoeyjo @emmagoodegg @pablo_bakes @anakbrunei @harimaulim @maurina @angelshameless & @bruneitweet for the good fun. Till the next one 😉

i-Lotus Restaurant Sungkai & Sahur Steamboat Buffet Promotion.

Well known for it’s fresh seafood hotplate, this place is always crowded by the hundreds. If you manage to reserve a seat, it’s best to be there on time, the queue for food starts quite early.
