Makan Brunei: Gurkha Palace
The oil rich town of Seria, situated in the district of Kuala Belait, is home to some of Brunei's oldest restaurants and coffee shops.
Many began as far back as the 70s and still stand erect in spite of a sudden resurgence of specialty restaurants and cafes.
Seria is vibrant in its own right and if you look hard enough, many gems lay hidden amongst its seemingly dilapidated exterior. One of these gems is Gurkha Palace.
Serving up authentic Nepalese cuisine, Gurkha Palace has crept into the hearts of Bruneians whilst maintaining its position on being a place reminiscent of home for the Nepalese community.
The food they serve is part what they would eat in Nepal, part what the locals would love here, all made using the finest herbs and spices, and cooked using recipes popular in the Himalayan mountains.
