Ambuyat and Bruneian Food
Bruneian cuisine is similar to Malay food that can be
found in Malaysia. The majority of the dishes are rich
and spicy, and are eaten with rice or noodles.
The hawker stalls offer pretty much the same fare,
like barbequed fish, chicken wings, satay, kueh melayu
and so on. Chinese food such as chicken rice, laksa,
noodle dishes and seafood are available at Chinese restaurants.
Thosai, tandoori bread and vegetarian fare (occasionally)
can be found at many Indian restaurants.
A local speciality is Ambuyat, otherwise known as 'edible
glue'. This is accompanied by grilled fish, a spicy
mango sauce and a selection of vegetables. Other local
favourites include beef rendang, nasi lemak and puteri
