Here are some of the delicacies... Enjoy the visual feast and if you're dying for some, make your way up the Batang Rejang!
|Bario brown rice - a healthier alternative to carbs|
|Ulam raja - has a weird bitter after taste which I can't really describe.|
You have to try it for yourself
|Pansoh manuk - chicken cooked in bamboo with tapioca & wild ginger|
Chicken literary cooks in its juices, infused with herbs.
A favourite of mine!
|Jani tunuk - succulent layered pork with the right ammount of fat & meat.|
Could have seconds!
|Pusu empikau - anchovies & tempoyak|
I'm not a big fan of durian but this combination seriously rocks!
Good enough to eat alone with rice.
|Tuak ice cream - vanilla ice cream drizzled with tuak|
A mean kick to a child's staple.
All the above dishes were sampled at the Dyak Restaurant in Kuching. Pay them a visit if you're game to try some local cuisine.
Next place is also in Kuching. Actually, a Kuching classic. The folks come here every time they're in Kuching.
|Some people think this place is overated but the food is still good, me thinks!|
|Can't say much about the special teh 'c'.|
So watered down compared to my first glass here a couple of years ago.
|Kolok mee - light & springy|
|The pièce de résistance - Sarawak Laksa!|
Then its over to Sibu for some of its famous Kampuah noodles.
|Kampuah - looks similar to kolok mee but don't be fooled. |
It's mushy & tasteless. 1st and last time you'll catch me eating it!
Food in Kapit is pretty much the standard affair. Something I found different and guilt inducing was the...
|Roti canai goreng - warm & fluffy.|
1 is never enough!
Just looking at the above is amylase inducing, especially since I now have to survive on my home cooked meals [bleh ; ( ]. Think this will keep you guys satiated in the mean time.
I have more pics & dishes to share, especially home prepared staples of the Song & Katibas areas. Stay tuned for the 2nd installment!
