Pasar Utama Bintulu

Pasar Utama Bintulu is a walking distance from where we stayed, Kemena Plaza Hotel.







Pasar Tamu Bintulu is located right next to the Pasar Utama.  This is where you can find all the local jungle produce.

 Bamboo for pansuh or lemang cooking
 The very famous Bintulu belacan, my belacan-expert-friend told me that Bintulu belacan has a stronger smell (fragrant) compare to Miri belacan.  Me, I like them both, as long as it looks a bit pinkish, not too dark brown.
 Durian
 Buah keranji
 Buah rambai - buah ni lebih masam dari buah langsat, nak makan pun ada cara tersendiri, saya kurang minat.
 Bertih beras - poprice
 Local veggie, only the petai is the only jungle produce.
 Items for Iban ritual ceremony - mini ketupat for Miring

Hi Merryn, have you ever heard of the pantun/peribahasa 'Buah keranji dalam perahu;. Suruh makan saya makan,. Suruh membaca saya tak tahu. '.

Well, this is the buah keranji in that pantun ;)

It has a sweet (bit sour) fruit inside. I love the taste.
