|Pekan Bekenu's Landmark, the Palm Fruit|
We went to Pekan Bekenu on Raya Haji (15 October 2013), which is about 45mins drive from Miri city via the Bintulu-Miri coastal road. When we reached there, I was dissappointed to find out that the Bekenu Wet Market was closed. Of course, the fishermen were Malays, silly me, sure they need the holiday.
Anyway I did not go back empty handed as there were still some vegetable and dry condiment seller at the Pasar Tamu next to the wet market. I bought daun sabong, green chilies to make this dish and also bamboo shoot to be stir-fried. All will be featured in my Sarawak Ethnic Cuisine blog.
We hung around abt 2-3 hours more in the pekan and had our lunch at a nearby seafood shop. Nothing much to see, but interesting nevertheless. Hopefully next time if I were to come here, I can get to visit the Wet Market.
