Visiting Sarawak as a Japanese Intern | Banana Cheese

Most may know Sarawak as a city with fascinating rainforest and the famous Rainforest World Music Festival.  Today, I would like to introduce you to the food in Sarawak that can be as fascinating as the beautiful adventurous rainforests. Gourmets being served in Sarawak come from 4 different cultures such as Chinese, Indian, Malay, and local Dayak tribes. This cultural diversity of food brings food lovers into a whole new world.

Today, I would like to share the food I learned to love where in Sarawak!

Japanese intern on food Banana Cheese3Sarawak being tropical in nature, many types of exotic fruits can be seen all over the place. Within these tropical fruits, I would like to start off my introduction with one of the most common fruits in Sarawak, “Banana”. Most of you guys might think “Bananas? I can just grab them from the Super Market anytime I want!” Well, the bananas I am going to introduce to you guys are different from the typical yellow bananas you buy at the store. In Malaysia, Bananas being easily available and growing all season, it is considered to be a fruit that can be bought at a very cheap price with high demand.

There are more than 10 types of bananas growing in Malaysia, all having distinctive features. For example, one could be small and round like the “Pisang Montel”, while others having a long skinny feature.

With the high demand and availability of Bananas, there are many dishes being served with Bananas as the main ingredient. Here’s my favorite dish that I recommend to you guys…

Pisang Goreng (Banana Fritters) with cheese

Here’s how I encountered this delicious dish:

Japanese intern on food Banana Cheese2It was another hot day in Malaysia, and me and the other interns decided to explore Sarawak. We decided to go to a populated area at first, so we took a taxi and ended up near one of the biggest food courts we been to. It was lunchtime and I decided to try something new since I wanted the day to be adventurous. I walked around the food court looking for something new but couldn’t find anything that excite my desire since the place was mostly aimed for tourists. After a few trips around the food court, there was a street stall on the other side of the street.  That’s where I found the Banana Cheese Fritters.

Crossing the street with curiosity, I noticed that the stall was taken over by Bananas. After a while, a guy came up to me asking to buy fried Bananas w/cheese. At this time, I thought to myself “Fried Bananas with cheese on top? I thought fruits were supposed to be refreshing”. But looking at the RM3 sign and the amount of fried bananas in a single plate, I couldn’t refuse the offer.  I paid for the Banana Fritters and waited for it at the table we found near the stall.

A moment later, the cashier came with a plate with a fascinating smell that provoked my stomach with hunger. It was like that smell of freshly baked bread in the morning.  The cheese topping melting from the heat of the fried bananas covered by the choice of my favorite flavor unleashed the hunger out of me. (Flavor varying from original, chocolate, caramel, cinnamon, etc.) After taking a picture, I took my first bite into the dish. I loved it. It was one of the best sweet snacks that I’ve tried in my life. The outside crisp mixed with the sweetness of the banana and the sugar is such a great mixture.  The time I remembered to take a photo of myself eating it, the plate was cleaned up leaving nothing but the caramel saucing that had fallen from the bananas.

If you ever plan on visiting Sarawak, this is a must try snack that will fulfill your taste buds.

サラワク州は、手つかずの熱帯雨林や神秘的な動植物が生息している事で知られています。夏には、Rainforest World Music Festivalなども開催されています。本日みなさんに紹介するのは、サラワク州のもう一つの魅力である「食」です。マレーシアには、数多くの食文化が存在し、一国にいながら刺激的な経験をする事ができます。
