Sheraton’s Selera Kampong Kitani
This was the first buffet style breaking of fast I’ve had this year, if you could believe that. Haven’t really gotten into the Ramadhan swing yet, and besides, I was trying to cut down on the food intake. But reminded about last year’s fabulous spread and the oh so scrumtulicious roast lamb on a spit, I won’t pass it up this year.
This year, the local food theme is back, with a veritable feast of local favourites, like ‘Roti John’, an actual Kebab station, my always favourite noodle station with the different kinds of Laksa, a great acar, cakes and desserts spread, and the crowd favourite lamb roast/grilled. Again and again I extol the virtues of the lamb there, which is the best in Brunei, and several colleagues agree with me on this. It just melts in your mouth.
Within this first few weeks I’ve usually broken the fast with finger foods, so it was a force of habit for me to go for the kebabs and Roti Johns. One or two servings of rice, satay and lamb, I was done. But not before going for a round of my new favourite there, the Noodle Station. I had the Laksa last year, and it was quite a surprise, and oh boy, it didn’t disappoint.
Perennial favourite, satay, with gravy next to it. I could break my fast with just a handful of these…
A thing of beauty.
Roti John, Kebabs, and Pratas. ‘Fast food’ by our standards.
Lovely ambience as usual.
Finished our dinner with oh so sinfully lovely Chocolate Cake.
Wide shot setting the scene…
