Kembara #dekatje: Kampung Style Lunch at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre

It was a busy and tiring morning after our coverage for Kalumpang Rainforest Jungle Run. Everyone was famished and upon arrival and checking in to Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre, our host graciously ushered for lunch.

Lunch was traditional Malay style where all the dishes were spread out on the floor and we eat our meal communal style with our hands.

The lunch spread was truly amazing and it’s nothing like what you can get in resraurants.

Assorted freshly plucked ulam-ulaman, salted eggs, salted fish, fried tofu and fried tempeh served in a huge tray. These side dishes are paired with steamed white rice and is absolutely delicious.

A must in every traditional Malay dish, sambal belacan.

Fried fish, freshly caught from the river.

Grilled fish wrapped with banana leaf and stuffed with sambal belacan. I usually detest fish, but this dish is to die for and please don’t ask how many helping I had. The amount was not very ladylike. ­čśŤ They served my favourite tumeric fried chicken too but I attacked this with fervour instead.

And last but not least, this delicious Papaya soup. It’s the chef’s specialty and was naturally sweet. This soup is said to have healing properties and it is believed that the soup helps in combating sore throat and reducing excessive body heat.

We washed off our lunch with young coconut juice before heading to the next thing on our itinerary; swimming in the river and tubing.
