It feels so good playing with the notebook on bed with the earphones plugged onto the ears listening to some of the latest songs. LOL!
Anyways, Kaylie and I met up for dinner yesterday evening after work to make up for last Sunday when she stood me up for a caffeine fix. We intended to have dinner at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at Brunei International Airport but then Kaylie felt like splurging a little on fancy food. So, we headed for Anjung Saujana Restaurant & Catering, which is located on the departure hall.
When Kaylie mentioned that she felt like trying Anjung Saujana, my first reaction was they do not serve ala carte but buffet only. But it turned out that they do serve ala carte and buffet dinner is only available on weekends.
Spacious with comfortable seating. Makes an ideal location for birthday celebration or perhaps reunion gathering with families and friends?
Pesto | B$9.50
My dinner for yesterday evening. Super love their Pesto albeit it was slightly oily for my liking. For their pasta menu, they have three choices of pasta – spaghetti, fettuccine and tortiglioni. I chose mine with fettuccine pasta.
The pasta was cooked al dente, tossed with generous amount of pesto sauce and olive oil but minimal portion of button mushrooms. In terms of flavor and seasoning, it was perfectly done. I would not mind ordering the same thing again if I were to eat at Anjung Saujana next time. If you are a huge fan of Pesto like me, do try this.
Chicken Chop | B$13.90
Kaylie’s dinner, which took quite some time to be served. Approximately 25 minutes after we had ordered. I was almost finishing my Pesto when this arrived. This is basically grilled boneless chicken thigh topped with mushroom sauce and side dishes of creamy mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
I loved the mushroom sauce. It was creamy and flavorful but too salty for me. The mashed potatoes were good too. The texture was not entirely smooth but it was good enough and seasoned well. The chicken was grilled to perfection. It was not dry at all but juicy and tender.
Can’t remember what this was called as Kaylie ordered it from Cilantro to feed the hungry baby inside her. This is not something which I would recommend ordering after seeing her having a hard time slicing the puff open. LOL! It was too dry that the puff kept on “flying” off the plate whenever she tried to slice the puff open.
Verdict: All in all, both Kaylie and I agreed that the food were good albeit being a little bit salty for our liking. Customer service is okay but food might have taken a longer time to serve than necessary. Pricing wise, I think they are similar with the restaurants in town. I am considering returning next time to try their international buffet.
