Dinner yesterday was at Danes Cafe with Jennifer and Aunty (Jennifer’s Mom) after we came back from our Kuala Belait (KB) road trip. We left Supa Save Seria approximately 15 past 5PM and reached EMPIRE Hotel & Country Club before 6:30PM. Driving back to Bandar was not as quick as driving to KB as there were more cars on the road and I cannot speed much in case there are speed traps waiting ahead of me. LOL!
It was not a busy night at Danes Cafe yesterday evening so food were served very promptly. Took us a while to decide what to order as we were spoilt for choice. What’s special about Danes Cafe is that they serve non-Halal cafe styled food.
French Fries | B$5.00
Ordered this as Aunty was craving for French Fries. To be honest, I liked the fries from both Danes Cafe and Rack & Brew Boutique Cafe. They were crunchy on the outside but soft textured on the inside. When I sent the pictures of the food we had to my other Whatsapp gang, they all commented that I ordered too much for two. Well, the food we ordered were for three actually. LOL!
Spicy Taiwan Beef Noodles | B$9.50
Not sour enough, as per Aunty after she tried her Spicy Taiwan Beef Noodles. Authenticity wise, it was not good enough as they did not use the right type of noodle. They used Kolo Mee noodles and the beef was not properly marinated so the raw taste was pretty strong.
Pork Rye Goulash | B$12.00
with sauteed veggie and Pilaf rice
Jennifer ordered this and the pork was well marinated in my opinion. The pork was tender and juicy in texture. Good value for money, I would say as the portion could easily feed two instead of one. I had never tried any Rye Goulash before so I cannot say for sure if this was authentic enough but I did like the taste.
Pork Meatball Pasta | B$13.00
Penne pork meatballs with fresh tomato sauce and cheese
I ordered this and the portion was for big for me. So, the three of us shared this as well. The pork meatballs were too dry for my liking. However, the pasta was cooked just nice for me and the sauce was just as appetizing loaded with big onions and green capsicums. I requested for less cheese though.
