If there is one thing you can name that brings people together in Brunei, only one thing comes to mind – food. Bruneians love their food. During the month of Ramadhan, a visit to the food stalls is an anticipated activity for people to get their sungkai needs. One of the biggest groups of stalls is located near the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium, Bandar Seri Begawan called Gerai Ramadhan Stadium.
With over 205 vendors joining across 400 stalls this year, there are a lot of food and drinks to choose from. The Sutera team joined the crowd and picked out five favourites that you should check out!
