Kueh Bongkol

Kueh Bongkol is one of my top favourite dessert.

Kueh Bongkol ni ialah kueh traditional masyarakat Melayu Sarawak.

Susah tau nak cari kueh ni kalau hari biasa, bulan puasa ni boleh la makan puas-puas.  Tapi tak banyak yang buat kueh ni dengan cara yang betul, ada yang tepung kurang lembut, gula terlebih/terkurang manis.

Yang ni saya beli dari gerai kueh tak jauh dari office saya, harga 90sen satu. Agak mahal juak, harga biasa dalam 50sen - 70sen satu.

This is how it looks like inside.  Tapi yang ni kurang sikit Gula Apong, kalau lebih lagi sedap.

Kueh ni sesuai di makan masa suam2 panas mahupun yang telah disejukkan dalam peti ais.  Dua-dua pun saya suka.

Saya rasa kueh ini ada persamaan dengan kueh Barongko, kueh traditional orang Bugis dari Sulawesi.  Adakah mereka dari rumpun yang sama?!

Ramadan buffet @ Fours Points by Sheraton, Kuching

My dinner last night...


On the big plate: Veggie pizza, pasta, Arab rice with lamb.
On the tiny plates: sour scallop, tasteless prawn, cheese cake and Arabic sweet cake.

Bakso and Bubur pedas

DIY air batu campur.

Those above cost RM88,  pheww luckily I am not the one paying for it!

The last time we had Ramadan buffet here was in 2010, which I paid for.
I remember they used to have more selection of food and the mussels were huge and fresh, so yummy.  And the price were cheaper too...

 Ohh those were the days when food were cheaper and tastier.
