Fodor's Review

Aminah Arif has several branches located across BSB. They all serve a tasty range of classic Malay dishes that are typical of Brunei, and at bargain basement prices to boot. But what makes the chain stand out is its delicious signature dish: Ambuyat, also considered Brunei's national food. This is a glutinous starch derived from sago flour that grew in popularity during World War Two when rice became scarce. It does not have a lot of flavor on its own—the idea is to

dip it into a range of sambals (chilli dips) and curries. You pick it up using a bamboo 'fork' called a chandas, a cross between tongs and chopsticks joined at one end.
