KUCHING: Bung Bratak Heritage Centre (BBHC) will serve Bidayuh traditional and original food at Bung Bratak for the hundreds of jungle trekkers and visitors visiting the Bidayuh historical-tourism place in conjunction with the upcoming Malaysia Day on Wednesday (Sep 16).

“The choices of food that will be served are pansuh chicken (chicken cooked in bamboo), pansuh fish and vegetable cooked in Bidayuh style plus nutritious local rice.

“All of these are very popular tasty local dishes and are very much sought after,” said Bung Bratak Heritage Association (BBHA) chairman Datuk Peter Minos in a statement issued on Sunday (Sep 13).

He also explained that the dishes were decided from the many requests from the trekkers who wanted something unique, original and traditional for themselves to enjoy.

“There is no problem for BBHC as there are lots of bamboo plants at Bung Bratak and also plenty of local spices and herbs like Dayak ginger and ‘Dayak terung’.

“We would also like to thank all trekkers and visitors for making the place popular and appreciated,” he shared.

In another development, Minos also shared that the number of trekkers and visitors had increased after they found a waterfall in Bung Bratak last month.
