The Best Nasi Katok in Brunei…

(in my opinion)

is this one from Serambangun in Tutong.

It’s a bit out of the way for most of you, I’m sure, but I actually know people from Bandar and KB who drive all the way down for this nasi katok. If simplicity had a taste, this would be it.

Fluffy fragrant boiled rice, topped with traditional turmeric and ginger-coated deepfried chicken, sweet and spicy sambal pusu, and most importantly, a healthy helping of green chili sauce.

I’ve tried various other nasi katok before, but unlike this particular one, they are either nasi lemak or the rice isn’t quite as fluffy or fragrant, or the chicken is coated in simply chili and soy sauce marinade, and their sambal pusu equally lazily made.

So if you’re thinking of heading down to Serambangun, bewarned that they often run out and close early, say around 10. If the cucul is still on, they’re still open then.

But the kampung style garage-turned-garai outfit is well-worth a visit if only to have a glimpse of beautiful big fat cat that just sits there. And the puspa isn’t too bad either.

PS: After writing this post, I was so tais liur, I dropped everything and drove all the way to Serambangun and bought 5 nasi katok pedas. nyam nyam. Sehingga menjilat jari sudu…!! (Upon close examination of the cucul-lit sign, I can now confirm the garai is named “Nasi Katok Peroda”. Don’t ask.)

  1. Rewarding just as describe! Aku fikir a mixture of Ayam Penyet in bandar and nasi katok Serambangun would make a great combination. Next time sanang-sanang ketani experiment! He He He

  2. Joh. Awu, nanti tah. I really wanna try the Nasi Ayam Penyet di Tg Nangka. Dari dulu udah everyone’s been saying how amazing it is (not until I say so OK?).

    BTW if you read post on the Blue Tea, you’ll see your Cawan Hadiah Kawin being featured.

  3. Not bad, i love ada hirisan lada padi atu arah sambal pusu atu. Nasi sadang banyak. Ngam di uli2 dulu then tunggap. Hayam gorengnya cukup masak sampai ke dalam. Home-style ayam goreng.
