BAU, Sept 14: Authentic traditional Bidayuh cuisine will be available at Bung Bratak Heritage Centre (BBHC) for visitors to sample starting this Malaysia Day (Sept 16).
BBHC chairman Datuk Peter Minos said traditional Bidayuh dishes like ‘ayam pansuh’ (chicken cooked in bamboo) and locally grown rice, amongst others, will be available to be served to the hundreds of visitors and jungle trekkers who visit the centre every week.
“Based on the feedback from the visitors to the area (BBHC), they want something new like the Bidayuh traditional dishes.
“So from this coming Malaysia Day, traditional Bidayuh food will be available at the centre,” Minos said yesterday when meeting visitors from various hotels in Kuching.
Minos said serving traditional food would be no problem with plenty of bamboo and local spices growing abundantly in the area.
He noted that BBHC is now more well-known ever since a 200-feet waterfall was discovered in the area.
“Many visitors are now flocking to the area to reach the top to see the giant trees and thick jungle.” — DayakDaily
