    food stalls: With your fingers, please !

    by kokoryko Updated Mar 4, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best local food is there! For very affordable prices. My preferred is located near the Sheraton in a small park, at the crossing of Jalan Tasek and Jalan Stoney.
    All sorts of rice, mie, and fried or grilled stuffs; lots of choice and very fresh fruit juices to drink while you eat, looking at the real local people. Try the grilled chicken and nasi lemak (coconut rice) at stall 20. 2 to 5 US$.
    At stall 14, a nice young lady makes super sate ayam; may be I fell in love with the lady and the food in the same time !

    Favorite Dish: all sorts of rice and noodles.

    too much ! lots of choice

    Riverside food stalls (gerai makan Jalan residensy: outside

    by kokoryko Written Oct 21, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eat sate and nasi goreng under the trees enjoying some cool air on the riverside, watching the boat taxis; several small stalls there, friendly people; just be patient service is not top at the ones I tried. For desert, go to the market 100 m from there and buy the small sweet bananas or if the season is right, rambutan or manggis (just delicious). 2 to 5 US$.

    Favorite Dish: Sate kambing (goat)

    Pantai restaurant: Kacang Bubur

    by kokoryko Written Oct 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on a terrace above the swimming pool, with view on the sea; modern wood architecture, open view, fans (no air conditioning), silver cutlery, competent staff; the buffet is really wonderful , with lots of food varieties, from Asian to international; grilled shrimps or marinated squids are the best among them; most interesting desert is the “kacang bubur” or sweet lentil soup, slightly aromatised with durian (the king of fruits, but it is a personal opinion): delicious, and it is a pity most western people avoid to try this really delightful desert. Price: expensive (I was invited), but probably worth the money.

    Favorite Dish: Kacang Bubur !

    Hau Hua Chinese restaurant: local chinese

    by kokoryko Written Oct 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jalan Sultan; many people working in the nearby offices take lunch there; the menu “card” contains about 30 pages; plenty of choice; service rather quick. Food is not impressive but interesting Chinese soups. The waitresses are friendly and wear mini-skirts, which is a good surprise in Brunei! 5 to 10 US$.

    Favorite Dish: Chinese soups

    Located in the western building of the Yayasan shopping centre; try the buffet, outside, looking at the shoppers or people just sitting down for their lunch; oriental buffet for 5US$, with a friendly but cumbersome staff. Other dishes need a long time before getting on your table.

    Favorite Dish: Nasi lemak

    Jollibee is a food chain originally from the Philippines.

    Favorite Dish: You can't find some of Jollibee Brunei's menu back in the Philippines like taco, curry rice, etc. But the favorite food here is the crispy chicken.

    I was tired and hungry from watching monkeys and visiting different mosques so I didn;t dare walk around and find a good place. I just sit and ordered food on a small restaurant near the bus stations before I head to my hotel.

    Favorite Dish: I had one cup of rice, one order of liver, one order of spicy eggplant and a jelly drink - all costs me $4.5

    Western resto ambience, Filipino staff :)
    I kinda got tired eating spicy foods so I opt to eat some pasta! Woops! I found this resto near the Jaya supermarket. I like it because most of the staff are Filipino and I had a great time chatting up with them! :)

  • The Mall Food Court: Choices from across the region

    by TangoTravel Updated Dec 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a number of restaurants in Gadong, many of which are mentioned in the guidebooks. The night I visited each one was deserted. The only place where you could watch locals and sample the local fare was the food court localed in The Mall. There is a huge choice of cuisines from the south east asia region and of the dishes I sampled the food was excellent.
