MALAY CUISINE

Nasi katok is by far the cheapest local food you’ll ever find. Nasi Katok contains white rice combined with a condiment of local blended chillies known as sambal with a piece of fried chicken. There are varieties of Nasi Katok being sold by local Bruneian and you can discover some of the local’s favourites.

Brunei’s best Nasi Katok Award in 2020 goes to Nasi Katok Mabohai which is the first Nasi Katok since the 1980s. Moreover, if you like the classic style, you can get yourself nasi katok from Kaka Restaurant or Nasi Katok Lily. But, if you dare to be different, you can go and buy nasi katok sambal tomyam from a Thai-owned tuckshop called Cha-Roen-Sap Sdn. Bhd in Sengkurong or nasi katok buttermilk chicken from SDK Restaurant in Rimba.
