Food Finds: Ambuyat – Brunei’s National Dish

Ambuyat is Brunei’s national dish. It looks like sticky glue and quite frankly, it tasted like hmmmm cornstarch and water mixture. So to describe it accurately, it is tasteless. That’s where the cacah (red gravy) comes to play.  The interesting part about this dish is the utensils that they use to pick it up since spoon or fork won’t work coz it’s too sticky. They use canda to pick up the sticky goo. It’s like chopsticks that are join at the end.

It’s a very interesting dish. It’s not something that I’ll eat again but I’m happy to have tried it. 🙂
