*Must Try* Best Coffee Shop in Town – Piccolo Cafe
Piccolo Cafe is well known for providing good coffee, best dessert and great ambience in town which is a must-visit list on our Brunei trip.
This cafe is also considered as a “Pit Stop” for foreigners due to its shop facing towards the waterfront (ferry terminal) so it would be quite hard to miss if you are going to visit “Venice of the East”.
Signature Iced Onde-onde Latte
A real benefit of not being a coffee addict which leads us to Piccolo Cafe new invention beverage “Iced Onde-Onde Latte” BND6.00 innovatively reforms a local kueh (dessert) into drinks.
Made from real pandan extract, coconut cream and Gula Melaka sauce, its definitely hard not to relate this masterpiece with the Chendol and Onde Onde, except this version has a unique twist when combined with Espresso and fresh milk.
The steps for enjoying this exquisite beverage is simple, just mix everything into the glass of milk (adjust according to your own taste) stir then voila! 😉
A rich, flavourful, mildly sweet and smooth version of cendol/onde-onde beverage is what you can expect from the outcome of this drink.
Piccolo cafe also offers the hot variation of this drink depends on your own liking.
Although the name does gives us a shock at first but still highly recommend (due to the creativity and unique taste) to try it out when you happen to visit this cafe!
Yummy Prawn Paste Chicken Wing
Since this is our brunch (due to late wake-up habit) so we decided to go with something interesting yet filling in order to conserve enough energy to walk through the whole Bandar Seri Begawan!
Our meal started off by ordering a set of finger food aka “Prawn Paste Chicken Wing” BND 7.50 which tends to be still piping hot upon serve. Chicken Wings are well marinated with prawn sauce gives a delicious salty flavour to the crunchy crust while tastes succulent from the inside.
We finished it way too fast without even notice it, still standing by with a “finger lickin good” posture while searching for any remaining chicken wing from the pile of bones! 😉
Homemade Beef Burger
The main course in Piccolo Cafe is a set of “Homemade Beef Burger” BND 9.80 featuring beef burger serves with fries and chilli sauce.
We can assure you that this is the “Best Burger” which we had in our life (up to date) mainly due to its beef patty. The thick Meat Patty is well seasoned without any nasty tendon while the texture is very soft and juicy.
Fresh combinations such as melted cheese, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, and mayonnaise just make everything tastes even better thus worth every single penny spend.
Coffee & Cookies Souvenirs
Looking for snacks to grab for later tea time? Piccolo Cafe also sells homemade cookies and daily baked croissants which definitely worth a try for hungry travellers.
If you are looking for something memorial during the trip, the cafe also offers Pure Borneo coffee beans, coffee mugs and coffee pots for you to choose as souvenirs.
From food, beverage and ambience aspect Piccolo Cafe is considered the top tier notch in Bandar Seri Begawan. Do avoid visiting during the office lunch break hours if you don’t want to spend extra long hours waiting for your food to arrive.
