Dreamcones, Seri Q-lap Mall

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Dreamcones takes up half a portion from our local niche market which sells Gelato. There are only 2 places where you can find Gelato in Brunei, if i'm not mistaken. Ideal or Dreamcones. By the way, Dreamcones is originally from Thailand.

There are two Dreamcones outlets in Brunei. You can find it at Seri Q-lap Mall, 2nd Floor (near to Lil Hub Cafe) and somewhere near to Kiulap Easyway...or Korean Restaurant..? Haha I'm not so sure about the exact location cause i haven't visit that branch yet.

Gelato actually the Italian word for ice-cream. And it usually comes with lotsa 'interesting' flavour like 'Teh Tarik Gelato'. I'm wondering do they sell 'Durian Gelato' in Brunei.. If yes, then i really wanna try it.

Coffee Flavour

The coffee taste is strong and is not a bad choice.

Dark & White Chocolate Flavour

This tastes great but is really sweet.

Blueberry Flavour

It has a bit of sour taste and this is reasonable as it's Blueberry flavour.

Strawberry Flavour

For a scoop of Gelato like this, it costs Bnd$2.60. If you want to add toppings, then there will be an extra charge of 50cents. Worth it or not, you decide.

Nacho (Chix)

Not only this.. the food weren't impressive too. We ordered Nacho (Chix), Pasta and Spaghetti and it was so simple. Nothing special and impressive about. Twelve serves a lot better Nacho than Taurean.

Chicken Pasta

We choosed Pasta and Spaghetti because there's so little choice on the menu..

Forget bout food talk, Taurean does serve goood goooood drinks at cheeaaaap cheeeeaaaap prices.
I'm not lying, where can you get a glass of mocktail at $1.30?
At Taurean!

It's still May, the month for Taurus and therefore, they are having such promotion like whoever order the drink name 'The Bull', you get to have half price off the original price, which is $2.50.
Hey, $2.50 per glass of Mocktail IS NOT expensive and $1.30 for a glass of Mocktail is cheap like siao.

So, Hunnie's Conclusion is............. If you wanna have some nice drinks, go to Taurean! But not for the food.. ^^

Faize Restaurant at Mata-Mata

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Mr. Jollibee (a good friend of Hubby) recommended that Faize serves really great Nasi Briyani and so we paid our visit to the restaurant few days ago. We love roti kosong but we never really tried our other food on the menu and since Mr. Jollibee highly recommended that and so we decided to try it out.

Faize Restaurant is located at Mata-Mata which is at the same complex of Mamih Mata-Mata and also Growing Star (Ikea).
The restaurant is really big which it occupied two units of shop houses and obviously they serve Indian food.

We decided to order the Nasi Briyani Kambing which costs $4.50 and waited patiently for the food to be served but the service was really efficient. Maybe because there weren't too many customers but I was still satisfied with it. When the food arrived, I was so surprised cause the portion was a lot and it's just right for both of us to share a plate. Other than the colourful nasi, acar, curry lamb and also vegetarian curry were served on the plate. Not to forget the egg too! I really feel worth it paying $4.50 for this delicious Nasi Briyani Kambing.

Prawn Dumplings

The wide variety of dim sum that Lucky serves include the most common dish, Prawn Dumpling and others like Chinese Style Fried Carrot Cake, Chicken Feet, Chee Chiong Fun and etc.

Salad Prawn

Lucky consists of upper floor and ground floor which Dim Sum is served on upper floor and when customers wanna have roasted meat, they could have it on either ground floor or upper floor but dim sum is not allowed to serve on ground floor.

The price is considered expensive as the economy nowadays isn't that good and the price of Lucky's food had been adjusted slightly higher. But people still keep visiting Lucky for their best dim sum.

Ice Cream @ Swensen's @ The Mall

Esther babe is back from KL and she told me that she never been to Brunei's Swensen's before and so we went there last night together with Hubby and Wee.

Swensen's is having the Spring Promotion but we had our dinner so we decided to order just ice-creams.

Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae

Dearly Hubby was not on the sugar craving mood so i ordered this sundae so i could order American Fries & Dips at cheaper price for Hubby.

American Fries & Dips

The Fries is different from those you get from other fast food restaurants because Swensen's serves thicker fries and it seem like the 'home-made' type of fries and unlike those frozen fries from fridge. It comes with special chilli sauce and also mayonaise.

Freckles Peak with Esther Babe

Esther said that Brunei's Swensen's serves less sweeter Freckles Peak than KL's.

We reached there at almost 8pm and there were only us but as time getting late bit by bit, more and more customers flocked in and it shows that their business is really good.

Due to the coming of Mother's Day, Swensen's is giving out door gift for the MaMas and it's Cup Cakes! It's a nice place to chill out with friends ^^

Goldleaf, Seri has the Kopi-Tiam feel and every morning there would be a lot of customers visiting to have their breakfast settled. The Batu Bersurat branch has the other feel. It's fully air-conditioned and it has two storeys. There is also TV equipped for customers to enjoy the TV shows while eating the food.

Goldleaf also serves Bah Kut Teh which receives popularity from customers too. Enjoying Bak Kut Teh with Cakoi is always the Best!

Salted Vegie Soup with Sliced Fish

This is one of my favourite soup but Goldleaf prepared it way too salty which made me suspect did they add addition salt into the soup? And too much pepper was added.
