An evening of meat and conversation...

Update 9th March:
Check out The Sax Player's review of the Sheraton Steak Promo!


Pic borrowed from Rano's Review
(cos it turned out much nicer than mine heheh)
I went to Tasek Brasserie together with da missus and the rugrats last night to sample their much talked about $12 T-Bone Steak promotion. We were joined by Wena and George who graciously agreed to dine with me. I was told that the first order of meat for the promotion was about 120kgs and it went within the first couple of days! We Bruneians sure love out meat ey!

It made me smile when George was kind enough to help one of the waiters out by taking our order since he was busy with some room service orders. The Sheraton team spirit never fails to impress me.

Da missus, Wena, George, and I all ordered the steak while the rugrats had the fish n chips and spaghetti bolognaise. The steak was served with a nice thick gravy, a dollop of mustard and a wonderful cream sauce, mashed potatoes, and fresh salad. The steak was 300gms of prime aussie beef and it was very tender and well marinated which meant it was nice and tasty! Just the way I like it!

Purists will argue with me on this till the cows come home (pun intended! hehe) about how steak should be flavoured just with salt n pepper but I've even done mine with curry powder!! So a nice marinade will impress me anyday :)

So, did I enjoy it? Well, the pic above shows me about to attack my SECOND helping! So hell yeah I liked it!! Its a no frills, good ole steak of which you can enjoy seconds, just cos, well, just cos its a no frills value for money meal! I mean, twelve bucks for a t-bone steak in the company of the lovely Wena, and dapper ole George? How can you go wrong! Promo goes on till 15th March. I'm definitely coming back for more before then!

Perhaps a small point, remember to serve the bread rolls next time round k guys? :)

My rating:- 3.5 out of 5

My fave marinade is Worcestershire sauce and cracked black pepper. Yummy!

Have you tried the chunks of meat at Hog's Breath Cafe? There's one in Chjmes and Vivocity in Singapore but the best one was in Perth. Try it, you won't regret it.

Kenali Negara Kitani

KNK or "Kenali Negara Kitani" means "Get to know your own country". Catchy title and I like it. This campaign spearheaded by Tourism Brunei aims to create an awareness among all Bruneian residents that the tourism industry has great importance as an economic activity for Brunei, and that enjoying tourism activities in the country is a worthy and interesting proposition.

Through KNK, Brunei Tourism hopes to see more locals taking time to explore and discover the local wonders, involving themselves in many sporting and leisure activities on offer, sampling regional delicacies and purchasing more local products and crafts.

Brunei Tourism's drive in promoting the KNK domestic tourism concept will encourage the public to use the services of local professional service providers to enjoy extraordinary activities and to visit "off the beaten track" attractions.

Hadrah

... In the past, hadrah was only performed during weddings, but now it is performed in open events, to greet honoured guests and more significantly to signal the arrival of His Majesty in various events...

... Brunei youths nowadays have done well in preserving the heritage and have even enhanced it. Back then, competition involved only beating of drums and chanting. But now performances are choreographed to make it more attractive and interesting...

... hadrah could be further promoted in Brunei if there is a national association of hadrah set up. "We have a national team for silat and gasing (top spinning), but not for hadrah. We cannot just rely on mukim and schools to promote the activity, it has to be done at a national level...
