So Loving Radisson Hotel’s Chicken Caesar Salad With Poached Egg


So yesterday, 3 days to the Brunei Darussalam 28th National Day celebration, I returned to Radisson Hotel to finish off some work that were omitted previously — a different perspective of Tasek Brasserie and the Business Centre.

The idea for the brochure was simply an overview shot of Tasek Brasserie restaurant. As a chef was in the vicinity, I asked for 10 minutes of his time to pose for this shot. I quickly setup a Full CTO gel on a flash right next to subject while another across the room for ambient.

Shooting at the Business Centre took longer than I realized. Got this shot of the restaurant landscape out of the way before lunch hour. If you think this shot could do with people in it, I agree but unfortunately time was a luxury this time and client needed just this.

I wrapped up the shoot after 2.5 hours and looked forward to lunch at what has become one of my favourite venues to dine in — Tasek Brasserie (including DEALS of course). Now, I am not a big fan of heavy meals so when treated to lunch compliments of the hotel, I had no knee jerk reaction to head to the buffet table. Instead, I savoured the opportunity to go a la carte and enjoyed a light and delicious Caesar salad with the works. The last time I ordered one was at least more than 10 years ago and it wasn’t that interesting to be memorable. This one, however, is a different story — it’s very good, I’d go as far as saying I loved it and wanted more. I finish off lunch with the only beverage that made sense: cappuccino to wake the senses for my long drive home.

  1. Yummy ! I shred my lettuce, cabbage and carrots fine with my BBQued Chicken and then toss with my homemade dressing and then sprinkled with a little crumbled packet Ramen or instant noodle packet.

    • Living in Seria (an hour plus away from Radisson Hotel) the closest available Caesar salad I can get my hands on is Fratini Restaurant’s. I have for years considered it the best (still do) especially after they modified it with smoked salmon instead of chicken and naming it after my daughter: Jewel Insalata Di Salmone. I could toss the salad myself as I have access to the same quality lettuce they use but really the one ingredient that brings everything together is their dressing. Having ‘discovered’ Radisson Hotel’s finest I now have another place to go the next time I’m there for another out of town visit.
