Year after year, Sheraton Utama Hotel doesn’t disappoint during the Ramadhan season, by offering a plethora of great breaking of fast items at a great price. The kampung styled offerings are sure to whet the appetite of the fasting patrons, with little tidbits of starters based on local dishes; from the salted fish, salted eggs, eggs covered in peanut sauce; to the local sweets and desserts, accompanied by the customary dates to break the fast, diners are greeted with a plenty of choice at the Tasek Brasserie this year.
The usual grilled whole lamb is present, along with the grilled food station. Other dishes of note were the Lamb Topiaza, and the Potatoes with Peanuts and Anchovies, which I loved despite the simple nature of the dish. I haven’t had the chance to try the Fish Filet dish and the Sup Tulang, but I only saw thumbs-ups from the other diners in our party last night, so it’s safe to say it’s good.
The laksa finished out my ’rounds’ last night, and people who know me, knows that I’ve been looking for a good laksa dish in Brunei for the past few months. I’d say the curry laksa they had was one of the top 3 laksa dishes I have had here.
To finish up, the dessert station was particularly inviting for the amount of cakes and desserts lined up, but had to go with the Mud Cake, as I’m a fiend for chocolate.
In all a great spread, a great atmosphere, and should have paced myself. By the end of the dinner, I was really, really full. Maybe I’ll come round again and have another go. Two family members conveniently have their birthdays in September. Maybe by then I’ve had more training.
