PINGGAI Cafe: Running Errands!

Dayak cuisine!

We picked you up again after picking Brendan up from Adelyn's homestay after coming back from Serikin Weekend Street Market.

We then punched in Pinggai Cafe into the Waze mobile app and headed to the Waterfront area. We could not find parking in the immediate vicinity of Pinggai Cafe, so we drove into the basement parking of Plaza Merdeka nearby.

We then exited Plaza Merdeka and walked a short distance along Carpenter Street before turning right onto China Street. Here we found our lunch destination, Pinggai Cafe famed for its modern take on Dayak cuisine. Serving trays embossed with flower motifs adorn almost all of its walls made for a unique dining ambiance.

We took our seats and quickly scanned the diminutive menu before settling on:

  • Grilled Cha Siu (Pork Ribs)
  • Pork Pansuh
  • Manok (Chicken) Curry 
  • Midin Fried Belacan
  • 3 Nasi Beras Hitam
  • a pot of Chrysanthemum Tea
  • 2 Coca-Cola
There's something about Dayak cuisine that appealed to Brendan's palate  since he again asked for a second helping of Nasi Beras Hitam, while I added a hot Caramel Macchiato.

Our Dayak lunch came to RM90.50 (approximately USD19/EUR18) which in our minds was reasonable given the rising price of pork. It was worth three times what we paid for our Bario lunch yesterday but was it three times better? The jury is out on this one.

After lunch we drove to Kuching International Airport to print out our boarding passes for our flight back to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.

We then met up with Jacob to hand over a box of chocolates that we forgot to bring along during our dinner two nights ago.

We finally got back to Adelyn's homestay at 2:40pm to rest up while I continued with editing our voluminous amounts of footage. We will probably stay this evening and order takeouts with the Grab food app.

Stay tuned for our next video where we go on a market hunt just a stone's throw away from Adelyn's homestay!
