Food in Brunei
Bruneians like eating, and due to the high number of foreign employees in the nation, there are many great restaurants in Brunei that offer a broad range of cuisines.
There is also a native cake, which consists of rice, beef curry, or chicken and may be very hot. This is very cheap when compared to other meals available for purchase, such as local dishes like chicken rice. However, with few veggies and too much fat, this is hardly a healthy choice.
The ambulity, Borneo’s unique gastronomic experience, is another choice. It is a sago-based sticky starch paste that may be dipped in a salt sauce.
Drinks in Brunei
Brunei is a dry nation, which means that alcohol is not sold anywhere in the country and that drinking in public is illegal. Non-Muslim tourists, on the other hand, are permitted to carry up to two liters of alcohol (wine or spirits) and up to twelve cans of beer every 48 hours, and there is a large variety of duty-free stores over the border in Malaysia to meet this demand. Alcohol, on the other hand, must be reported upon arrival in Brunei when passing through customs.
Many high-end restaurants allow customers to bring their own alcohol and do not charge corkage, however this is technically prohibited and it is advisable to maintain a low profile if you wish to drink in a public place. Many restaurants at the lower end (particularly Chinese eateries) provide illegal alcoholic drinks under euphemisms such as “special tea.”
Try the teh tarik, a sweet milk tea, as well as the variety of coffee (kopi) offered in eateries.
