May Fang Coffee Shop is well known throughout Brunei.
Many from Miri would also drive up to Tutong just to have its teh c and Kopi c with the kuih like pulut. The pulut panggang from this simple and clean shop has a good reputation and most of them would be taken by 10 .30 in the morning. The pulut will be cooked by 8 in the morning. So one cannot be there too early also. Apparently the first owner of the coffee shop must have made the pulut in the early 60's when government officers frequented the shop and mobility was not that great then.
The Tutong Magistrate's court is just about 200 meters away on the same side of the road..
The other nyonya kuihs are just as good. I like them because they are not very sweet but are tender and fragrant. Perhaps being a corner shop its feng shui is very good. People of all races come here and meet up. And sometimes it is so motivating and cheerful to see good friends smiling and talking animately over a nice "glass" of kopi c or teh c. And then the river scenery is just perfect to make your morning start well.
the pulut comes in two "tastes" : you can have the prawn sambal or the beef sambal fillings. I love both. Most people buy up to ten each time they visit Tutong. But more often then not you come away empty handed.
The Kuih Lenggang is very tender. I used to tell my friends it was love at first bite for me. I do make an effort to go there.
