Horizons Restaurant is back with its annual Singapore Food Festival, bringing over 80 traditional and contemporary dishes from Singapore.
As the festival is a celebration of multi-cultural heritage, the dinner buffet features food items from one of the oldest eateries based in Singapore, Rumah Makan Minang Restaurant.
Zulbaidah Marlian, the owner of the eatery, told The Bruneian that customers will have a taste of eight to eleven of their famous dishes.
The dishes include Daging Rendang, Tauhu Telur, Udang Balado Petai, Bergedil, Ayam Gulai Padang, Ikan Bakar Minangkabau, Sayur Acar Padang and side dish, Keropok Emping.
She said that Bruneians who frequent their restaurant would usually order the Rendang due to its rich full flavour, Tauhu Telur and Ikan Bakar Minangkabau.
“These dishes have a little bit of sweetness and is guaranteed to spice up your tongue,” she said, adding that the recipes were passed down by her mother who originates from Minangkabau in Kota Padang Pariaman.
Zulbaidah along with her children and niece were in the sultanate for a few days to prepare the dishes alongside Horizons Restaurant’s chefs.
“I hope that everyone will enjoy our family’s recipes that are also a blend of Indonesian and Singaporean flavours,” said the restaurant owner.
Rumah Makan Minang Restaurant is featured in association with the Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore High Commission, to introduce different gastronomic experiences featuring flavours of Singapore.
Area Director of Singapore Tourism Board for Malaysia and Brunei Dawn Ng said this is to give Bruneians an opportunity to sample the story of Singapore through their taste buds.
“The Singapore Food Festival has been well received by the people of Brunei and is one of the key activities to promote our culinary scene. We are excited to continue our collaboration with the Singapore High Commission for this year’s edition,” said Ng.
The event was jointly launched by Deputy Minister of Finance and Economy (Economy) and Chairman of Royal Brunei Catering Dato Seri Paduka Dr Hj Abdul Manaf Hj Metussin and Singapore High Commissioner to Brunei Lim Hong Huai.
The buffet is available until December 27 from 6.30pm to 10pm daily at $29.90 for adults and $14.90 per child from the ages of 5 to 11 years old.
