SET DINNER @ JAMBU RESTAURANT, JALAN BAMFYLDE, KUCHING


This is my third time here - all under different circumstances and each have different outlay of food; finger food for the book launch, normal offering from the menu the second time, and this time a buffet style set dinner. The restaurant accommodates custom menu if one has sufficient number of people dinning - I think, the minimum is 15 persons. It works out to be no more expensive than if ala carte is ordered. The neat thing is that everyone gets to sample all the different variety of food, rather than be restricted to one or two individual items. With the exception to some details, the co-owner tailors the menu to my preference (food and price-wise). Seating is arranged in an elongated co-joint tables stretching almost the whole length of the main foyer.



Creamy Mushroom Bruschetta



The meal starts off with the Bruschetta - at least it's different from the tomato ones we've been getting at most places. This is followed by the tapas of...


Sizzling Prawn in Olive Oil And Garlic

Eggplant In Spicy Spanish Sauce


Cajun Chicken Skewer

This keeps us going with the wine until the salad arrives - a lightly oil-tossed pasta salad.

Then the mains...


Roast Rosemary Beef & Slow Roast Lamb With Mushroom Sauce & Lamb Jus

... with the accompaniment.

Roasted Vegetables and Potatoes

And for those having trouble chewing meat...

Fish & Chips

The ice cream ends the evening. If I remember correctly, it works out to be in the ballpark of RM35 per person, which includes 1 free corkage of wine (another one is charged), and free flow of cordial drinks.

I'd say it's relatively inexpensive for the quantity and variety. Definitely someplace I'd like to visit.

it's a watering hole too at its back portion; that's where the tapas come into play.

For Muslims,

They served non halal food (ie pork chop etc) on special request because its not in their menu. Please be aware....Assalam.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
