Local rice in banana leaf and tilapia fish stew with local sour fruit

Rice from paddy grown on the hillside is a befitting accompaniment to the local dishes that are tasty and often spicy. Wrapping the cooked rice in a banana leaf lends a fragrant and ethnic feel to the dining experience. With belacan and lemongrass, spiced with lots of chili paste, this fish stew goes well with plenty of rice on the side. The unique ingredient here is the takob-akob a wild, small red fruit that adds a sour tang that will awaken any sluggish appetite.
