Eating and drinking

The variety and quality of food is outstanding, with a medley of restaurants, market stalls and food courts offering a wide range of cuisines from Malay, Chinese and Indian, to Indonesian, Japanese and European. Because of Brunei's relative wealth, there is less streetfood than in other Southeast Asian countries. Nevertheless, the informal local restaurants and food courts are still the best places to sample good local cuisine - and at great prices. Brunei is a 'dry' country: sale of alcohol is banned, and consumption is prohibited for Muslims. Certain restaurants will allow non-Muslims to bring their own alcohol to drink with the meal. Bandar Seri Begawan itself is deserted after dark.
