[ August 13th ]

I’m from sleepy town Tutong, Brunei.  Our claim to fame is our Pulut Panggang (Grilled Glutinous rice sticks), and our beautiful beaches, and of course our very laidback lifestyle.  Not much to do down here apart from sports or eating out… you can tell which one I prefer…  and I hang out till late with friends A LOT… and that means eating out A LOT!  So I might as well blog about it, no?

I consider myself to be a “Professional Eater”.  I’ve travelled to many parts of the world, and in each place, I sample the local food and drinks as much as possible~ haggis in Scotland, boiled pigeon in China, Blue Stilton, Belutak, Marmite, and don’t get me started on Thai food ~ experience that I will draw upon in my ramblings, no doubt.

This blog isn’t supposed to be about me, but rather the glorious food we have to offer in Brunei. You will get the odd blog about things other than food from time to time, but it’s mainly about that thing you stuff in your face  but wouldn’t admit doing.

But it’s all good…  Bah enjoy your stay!

P.S: Do leave your comments, or you can email me on 13th.of.august@gmail.com

  1. I stumbled upon this blog while i was looking for a recipe for pais daging. Really enjoyed reading it! Entertaining stuff and funny. Keep it up!

  2. Hi Jennie, thanks for visiting and your support.

    I like two Pulut Panggang places in town: The new Restoran Putih (former Restoran Hj Asbullah) now across the Balai Polis Tutong, opposite the Chung Hwa School. You wont miss it. See post here: https://august13th.wordpress.com/2009/04/03/death-of-a-legend/

    The other one is Mei Fang, smack in town, at the very end of the old riverfront blocks. I actually havent written about this place, but i’ll do it very soon. Do check.

    Both Hj As/ Puteh and Mei Fang were legendary for their pulut panggang, it’s just a matter of preference a lot of times.

    Come down to Tutong lah and check out both in one go.
