Aside from cultural immersion, a travel to Brunei can also be a good gastronomic experience, given the presence of several good restaurants that serve good food and provide awesome dining experiences to both locals and travelers alike.

Brunei has a vast selection of restaurants, from local restaurants and eateries, food fairs, coffee shops, local and international fast food chains, name it! Below are some Brunei restaurants that I highly recommend and all travelers should try out.

Soto Babu Nini and Nasi Katok

For me, Kota Batu is the most peaceful area in Bandar Seri Begawan. This unique restaurant is built by the water and they serve the best soto and nasi katok ever! ๐Ÿ™‚ They have an infinite board walk which is perfect for photoshoots. And oh, their restaurant is very colorful, too!

Bandarku Ceria is the weekly Sunday ‘family day’ fair in Bandar Seri Begawan where kids and families gather around the Taman Haji Sir Muda Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien to play around, have picnic, and eat at the food stalls and shop for items around. Sometimes activities like fun runs are also held. For me, Bandarku Ceria is a happy activity, but I came to know that most Bruneians don’t really go there. I was able to try cheap food and drinks at my Bandarku Ceria experience.

Tamu Kianggeh was once a traditional market by the river, until the government decided to renovate it to become one of the cleanest and most organized market I’ve been too. Aside from dry and wet goods, they are also selling local food there, which is a good thing to try out.

Easy Way Tea and Cafe

For a cheap but perfect local dinner, head to Gadong Local Market. They sell everything, from appetizers, main meal, dessert, and drinks! I love their nasi katok which they only sell for 1 BND. Of course, I would not miss drinking teh tarik and Milo here, and I also got kebab meals and local pancakes.

If you’re traveling to Brunei but been craving some food from outside the country, you could head to MyTown. They have a very sophisticated interior and they also serve different food from different cuisines. I was surprised when I saw some Filipino food in the menu! But of course, I went for some soto which is a local food in Brunei.

Brunei Restaurants: Ambuyat and more at Aminah Arif Restaurant! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ambuyat is a local Bruneian dish made of sago palm, which is cooked into a jelly-like food and dipped in a spicy sauce. It is also considered as the National Dish of Brunei and is also popular in the Malaysian territories in Borneo, like Sarawak, Sabah, and Labuan. I recommend Aminah Arif Restaurant to have a taste of Ambuyat.

Since I regularly eat Yellow Cab Pizza in Manila, I was able to compare it with the Yellow Cab Pizza here in Brunei. I appreciated how better-tasting halal food is, which made me prefer it more than any other kind of food most of the time. They have rice meals which do not exist in Manila, and a Milo for a drink as well. Yum!

Late Lunch at Lola Cafe S Maison

(This is a non-sponsored honest review of Lola Cafe S Maison completely based on my paid dining in experience.)

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO 33 HALAL RESTAURANTS IN METRO MANILA, PHILIPPINES

Whenever I don’t travel, I am always on the hunt for restaurants that I can try in Manila. As someone who always wants to improve parts of herself and her personality, I take myself out on a date. I’ve been doing this inside and outside the Philippines for quite a while now. It eases my social anxiety, made me more confident and more ‘street smart’.

I’ve been wanting to explore the restaurants at S Maison. Upon checking online, several restaurants, including Lola Cafe, just opened. Honestly and ironically, I am not a fan of Filipino food and Filipino restaurants. However I wanna check if this is worth giving a try. I’m interested about the twist that they provide with the usual Filipino food.

Lola Cafe S Maison Location

Lola Cafe S Maison is located at the 2nd Floor (Level 2) of the mall. I did not have a hard time looking for Lola Cafe. Not only that S Maison is a small mall, Lola Cafe is just right on the spot where you can walk to going to the escalators and the bathroom.

The Staff and The Service

I scanned the menu at the entrance but there is no staff at the podium area attending to customers. I had no idea what to do so I decided to just go straight in.

The staff greeted me good afternoon and I noticed the restaurants was a bit packed. I am close to assuming that there is a private event going on or something. There were people coming back and forth (mostly senior citizens and families with noisy kids—I’m just not a fan of kids hehe). I asked if there are vacant seats for one. They pointed me to the outdoor seats by the corridor and the seat near the entrance. I just chose the very isolated seat by the entrance.

Lola Cafe S Maison
Lola Cafe S Maison

The seat I chose was isolated and awkward. They started getting my orders and since I already checked the menu online prior to going there, my order was a little quick. I ordered a Pork Belly Bagoong, Green Tea Lychee, and Kesong Puti Cheesecake. I think they have a good selection of coffee, but I am on a coffee break, so I’m gonna have to pass.

After a few minutes, a staff approached me and explained that instead of chicharong baboy, they will put kropek on my meal instead because they ran out of chicharon. Not everyone would accept this compromise, but I had no problems with it, so I said yes.

The Food

The orders did not take a lot of time, considering that they are (I assume) catering to a private event. The rice bowl meal tasted good at first, but I have an issue with the pork. I am not sure if it’s just me, but the pork smelled a little odd, and you could smell it when slicing it. Because of that, I just finished my meal for the sake of finishing it. I can’t taste the bagoong part in the rice either.

Pork Belly Bagoong and Green Tea Lychee Lola Cafe S Maison

The green tea lychee, on the other hand, was good! It was a little expensive though, but it tastes like a non-alcoholic mojito.

Kesong Puti Cheesecake Lola Cafe S Maison
Kesong Puti Cheesecake Lola Cafe S Maison

I asked the cheesecake to be served, and before serving, they gave me a small plate and small spoon. On my mind, I was like “It was just a slice, right? I don’t need to transfer it on another plate.” But when the cheesecake came, It was bigger than I’m expecting, which is worth the price, I believe. The cheesecake lover in me was happy, but this particular cheesecake was made of kesong puti, which makes the cheesecake a little saltier than usual.

No problem with me, I like it, actually! It has a bukayo on top, and at first I have no problems with it, but as I eat more of it, I’m starting to think it tasted weird. But I appreciate the effort of putting a Filipino twist to a cheesecake. Overall, I still like it.

Lola Cafe S Maison Take Out

Of course, I was only able to consume a part of the cheesecake. I asked for the bill and the remaining cheesecake to be taken away, and it was a smooth and fast transaction. They charge 5% for service fee which for me is reasonable enough.

The Verdict

My overall food and service experience at La Lola S Maison was not perfect, but I want to give them a chance since they are still on their soft opening stage and they have a lot to improve. I haven’t dined in on the other two branches of La Lola (in Tomas Morato and Podium Mall) so I can’t really compare them. Next time perhaps I would try other items on their menu and their cocktails as well.

A Complete Guide to 33 Halal Restaurants in Metro Manila, Philippines

The Philippines has a significant number of Muslim population, however I know for a fact that my Filipino Muslim friends and colleagues are always finding it hard to find halal restaurants in Manila, Philippines. Moreover, I know several Muslim friends who are discouraged to visit Manila because halal restaurants are not so common here, and if so, they cost more than an average meal.

For the benefit of my Muslim friends and colleagues inside and outside the Philippines and the entire Muslim community as well, I have compiled this list of halal restaurants in Manila*. I promise to try these restaurants myself one by one in the future to have a first hand review.

*This list is solely based on online research and my own dining experience in some of the halal restaurants in Manila on this list. So if you want to add something to this list and perhaps suggest corrections, feel free to shoot me a message at email address sherlynmaehernandez@gmail.com.

Halal Restaurants in Boracay
Are there halal restaurants in Boracay?

Boracay Island? Definitely the most beautiful island in the world that travelers from all parts of the world desire to go to. However, I know for a fact that the Philippines, despite having a significant number of Muslim citizens, lacks a comprehensive information on halal restaurants (whether in Manila, Boracay, Cebu, among others). I have many Muslim friends inside and outside the Philippines, and for their benefit (and for every Muslim traveler’s benefit), I did a research and compiled this list of 11 halal restaurants in Boracay Island*. I wish I was able to eat on these restaurants and review them during my stay there. But I can always go back to do it, right?

*This list is solely based on online research. So if you want to add something to this list and perhaps suggest corrections, feel free to shoot me a message at my Instagram (instagram.com/wheressherlyn) or at email address sherlynmaehernandez@gmail.com.
