Last week I was at a bbq to celebrate a friends’ baby girl’s 1st bday! Here’s the cake…
Kiut ah the cake..! Just hope it grows bigger as Syasya grows older… hehe
A Brunei style bbq, in case you’re still under any illusions that it’s anything typical, is not your typical barbie… foodwise at least…
It’s not just chicken drums-turned-carbon, there’s always other interesting stuff to fill your gob, such as..
Ok Ikan salai, not so bad… nice actually, with a bit of soy sauce dip with shallots, bird’s eye chili and lots of lime juice.
We also had Sup tulang (bone soup).
This is Chicken curry. The cinnamon stick gives it that extra oomph.
These are little fish, sun dried and then fried to a crisp. You can eat it just like that, the way we did. They were really tasty.
Ada soto lagi tu… this used the broth from the bone soup, poured over bee hoon, with spring onions, and the tender meat that fell off the bone… (see pic above)
And glorious satay… Satay urat, satay ayam and satay daging served with spicy peanut sauce…
The lontong (pressed rice cubes) was excellent too! The begedil pun nyaman. These are potato balls with beef or chicken, coated in egg and fried. Not good for the heart, but always good for an empty stomach, esp when dipped in chili sauce.
I’m not sure what these are called, but i bet they belong to the Ketupat family. These are triangular rice cakes with beef filling (or chicken or prawn), wrapped in sweet aromatic pandan leaves. These are obviously the savoury, but here’s another type of rice cake wrapped in palm leaves. This is sweet fermented rice called Tapai. I prefer it chilled.
And to finish we had sweet egg tart… yum.
So there ya go, not quite your typical bbq- more like a dinner buffet at Rizqun, but for free… hehe… Happy Birthday Syasya..!!
ps. I know this was such a lazy post, but felt obliged to upload stuff, but just been too busy with work. No joy.
