The reason why we choose Borneo Exotic Food Restaurant and Catering come out
with an idea where our food is different compare to any other food providers. Since
we are in Borneo therefore, we would like to use the uniqueness of Borneo itself.
Borneo is the third largest island in the world, and consists of Sabah, Brunei,
Sarawak, and Kalimantan. In Borneo we are so lucky to have such a rich culture and
traditions where we could not find anywhere else in the world, as one of the most
unique Island in the world, the tradition and plants is totally different compare to
anywhere else. For example, we are the only country in the world with Rafflesia flower the largest flower in the world, founded by Sir Stamford Raffles expeditions,
lead by Dr. Joseph Arnold, among the main Rafflesia flowers in the world is rafflesia
arnoldii, rafflesiapercii, rafflesiatengkuadlinii. Besides that, the main and most
unique indigenous group such as KadazanDusun, Bajau, Rungus, Murut and so
much more. The KadazanDusun is the main ethnic in Sabah, mostly can be
found in Penampang area, they celebrated Kaamatan Day at the end of May and first
day of June, mostly family members would gather and celebrate the event, a lot of
activities is being held there, such as unduk ngadau where they search for the
prettiest girl which represents the goddess that they believe save them last time
during their folklore, the other tribe which have almost the similarities with the
KadazanDusuns are the lbans in Sarawak they celebrated Gawai day, it is similar
where family members gather and celebrate to have fun and they also have a contest
like unduk ngadau as well it is call the queen of gawai. Those are some or few of the
main ethnic that can be found in Borneo.We are focusing on foods that are rarely
found in restaurant as Bambangan, Tuhau, Hinava and so much more. Even though
most of them can make it but it is upon request unlike our restaurant we provide it
just to introduce it to the tourist which come from almost around the world and let
them taste the uniqueness of Borneo. Speaking of which, the ethnic are able to turn
wild plants, herbs and fruits into culinary masterpieces that will tantalise your senses.
In addition, its sweeping coastlines and many large rivers provide an abundance
of freshwater fish. Rice is a staple but in the far north, corn and tapioca are popular
not to forget Sago by Sago plant and with certain process which we can extract the
Sago from and the local cuisine which is made from the plants itself. Most of the food
can be eaten in variety kind of ways and serve most of the time.
