Kampung Buntal or the village of Buntal is a half - way on the road to Santubong beach. Stopping by the small village road we checked at the roadside stalls for some goodies. We bought a couple of pickled fruits packed in plastic. The fruits pickled are mainly of the 'cermai' ( Phyllanthus acidus L.Skeels. ) ,the 'kedondong' ( a species of the canarium family) and the sourish 'asam paya'.
Buntal village is about half an hour drive from Kuching city and people as well as tourists from Kuching frequent the sea food restaurants here in the evening to savour the many varieties of reasonably priced fresh seafood available in abundance.
