A Kalimantan Culinary Adventure

Other Cuisines

Kalimantan is the Indonesian name for the island of Borneo, and outside Indonesia refers to the three quarters of the Island which belong to Indonesia. It's home to a dozen major ethnic groups and a myriad of minor ones. Its cuisine falls within the broader Indonesian-Malaysian culinary spectrum, but there are obvious specialties in different regions and communities. While Kalimantan cuisine is not a unified cuisine, I decided to cook it as Indonesian food is very good and I don't think I'd be able to explore every different cuisine that exists in the island.

I made several dishes from different parts of the Kalimantan. Unfortunately, they weren't my most successful ones, but they were fun to make.

Related cuisines I've explored so far: Ambonese, Balinese, Bruneian, Dayak, Indonesian, Jakartan, Javanese, Kalimantan, Kelantanese.
