The foods of Brunei-Darussalam

The cuisine of Brunei is heavily influenced by its neighbouring countries like Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, as well as India, China, Thailand and Japan. Being a predominately Islamic country, food is halal and pork is avoided. Alcohol is also banned in Brunei. Food in Brunei is often spicy and meals are usually accompanied by either rice or noodles.
Popular dishes in Brunei include:
