Cynthia said...

ponas is vegetable soup thickened with grated cassava (ubi kayu)....your sup ikien with tiyung dayak, sedap makan with u mind if i ask, which kampung are you from?

Nimi Momo said...

oku so krokong. let me guess, muu so singhai? :D

actually i myself never tried sup ponas, i only heard of it's description from other people..

sup ikien tiyung dayak man duoh sagu.. wet or the dry round one? (urgh.. i forgot the name)

Cynthia said...

yeh, memang betul tekaan anda....sepuluh markah! hehe

not sure if ponas is a bi-singhai thing.....i eat sup ikien tiyung dayak with transparent sagu....the dry tiny balls of sagu are melanau's specialty....

Nimi Momo said...

"waduh, mosie tu sambal tiung inuh....adin oku jadi natong sambal tiung daya de madang de opui inuh....slurp"

haha!! your very first comment gave u away! i recognise ur bisinghai slang there ;)

if somebody mail it to you, will the customs there confiscate it?

for the sagu linut (transparent wet sagu) I like to eat it with sup tempoyak and serai.. :)~ aduh thinking abt it can make me go crazy sometimes haha!

btw, we have a Bidayuh/Sarawak specialty restaurant here in KL. Owned by a Bidayuh datin. It's called Restoren Pucuk Ubi. i have yet to try most of their food, but sometimes they host some of Sarawak event here in KL, and that's the time we 'lepas geram' .. hehe...
