Kuching Trip 20-22 Jan 2011 (Part III) - Food: Pansuh Manok (Bamboo Chicken)

Al-Fayad Bamboo Chicken

Address: No. 115, Kampung Boyan, Petra Jaya, 93050 Kuching, Sarawak.


From the self-explanatory board, Pansuh Manok or Bamboo Chicken is a Sarawakian traditional dish - chicken cooked in bamboo with 15 kinds of jungle herbs and ferns.

Here's how the cooked chicken and herbs are poured from the bamboo.

Pansuh Manok
This dish is not really flavorful but it's surprisingly refreshing due to the (almost, I think) non-existence of seasonings. The clear broth retains the original flavor of chicken breast meat and jungle herbs and ferns. I don't know what are the 15 types of "grass" used in this dish but they are not bitter or weird. In fact, I enjoy munching them. :)

Pansuh Manok is definitely one of the interesting, must-try Sarawakian traditional dishes.

Belacan Midin
Midin is a local edible fern. It looks like paku-pakis but slightly thinner. Midin is usually stir-fried with belacan and chillies and best eaten with hill rice from Bario, Sarawak. :)
