These are a few of my favourite things (Brunei edition)

In the time we’ve been in Brunei, we’ve made a real effort to try lots of different things, and experience as much as we can.  There are still some major gaps (top of my to do list is a visit to classic bakery/kopitiam Chop Jing Chew), but I think we’ve done a reasonable job of trying things out in KB, BSB and Miri.

So today I thought I’d share a few favourite places to eat.  Here are The Engineer and Wife official recommendations (subject to change as we try even more!)

Kuala Belait (KB)

  • Nasi Goreng Pattaya and Iced Lemon Tea (and many more!) at the food stalls by the river
  • Breakfast of breads (roti, murtabak, dosai, poori – whatever you feel like) and Teh Tarik at Al-Malabar
  • Indian food at Taj Kitchen
  • Anything and everything from the Gerai Ramadhan (limited time only, of course)
  • The views from the roof of the V Plaza Hotel, especially at sunset
  • Thai food at Nur Wanita
  • Chicken rice at Restoran Chicken Rice (I think that’s the name.  Next to KFC on Jalan Pretty)
  • Steak at Buccaneer (it’s cold though, and the service isn’t always great)
  • Sweet and sour pork with fried rice at Hole In The Wall
  • Kolomee for breakfast at the old market building on Jalan Pasar

Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB)


  • Big burgers at Twisted Burger
  • Seafood and fern shoots at the restaurant by the water (can’t remember the name of that one!)
  • Kolomee at all sorts of little cafes and stalls
  • Board games while you enjoy a drink at Play Board Game Cafe (in Bintang Mall, near the movies)
