Support Bali Coral Conservation and Help Save the Ocean

Conservation matter may be one of many things that don't get much attention compared to other issues in the tourism industry. Despite Indonesia being the country with the largest archipelago in the world, a significant number of people have not yet received the information on how important it is to appreciate nature and take care of them.

Last year, in API Awards 2020, Bone Labunta in Buton Tengah won 3rd place in the New Destination category. It was a blast, and one achievement that Buton Tengah really should be proud of for considering the process of being selected to be in the nomination list out of 1000 over submissions was not easy.

If we talk about what to eat in Buton Tengah, I can assure you that the variety will spoil you. Personally, I have never been to a place that offers not only cuisine uniquely to the area but also plenty of traditional snack choices!

I would share a list of must-try food in Buton Tengah in another article on this blog. As for now, let’s check out one of the foods in Buton Tengah that managed to get into the nomination list on API Awards 2021 in the Traditional Food category.

Tahun lalu, di ajang API Awards 2020, Bone Labunta di Buton Tengah memenangkan peringkat ke-3 di kategori Destinasi Baru. Boleh dibilang itu merupakan pencapaian yang luar biasa untuk Buton Tengah mengingat proses seleksi yang begitu ketat, dan harus bersaing dengan segitu banyak nominasi-nominasi dari daerah lain.

Bicara soal makanan di Buton Tengah, boleh dibilang kita akan dimanjakan dengan banyaknya pilihan yang ada. Secara pribadi, saya belum pernah mengunjungi satu tempat di Indonesia di mana kita tidak hanya saja disuguhi dengan makanan tradisional khas lokalnya, tetapi juga variasi kudapannya yang juga tidak kalah menarik.

Saya akan bahas daftar makanan yang mesti teman-teman coba sewaktu berkunjung ke Buton di artikel lainnya. Untuk sekarang ini, mari kita coba lihat salah satu kudapan dari sekian banyak yang ada di daftar tersebut yang berhasil masuk jadi salah satu nominasi API Awards 2021 di kategory Makanan Tradisional.

Kadampi – A Traditional Snack Uniquely to Buton Tengah

Kadampi, a name for a snack uniquely to Buton Tengah. It has a thin, almost round shape, made from cassava that has been finely grated, brown sugar, wrapped with banana for the extra natural fragrance, and then steamed to cook. Imagine the soft texture of the grated cassava mixed with the sweetness of the brown sugar – yummy!

Eat it while piping hot is the best, but it is good, too, even when it is already cold! I got lucky to try it when my friends and I were in Buton Tengah. And I remember it was around afternoon tea time when it was served together with many other traditional snacks on the table for us.

Kadampi, nama salah satu kudapan khas Buton Tengah ini bentukny pipih dan hampir bulat. Terbuat dari ubi yang diparut halus dan gula merah, yang lalu dibungkus dengan daun pisang supaya lebih wangi sebelum akhirnya dikukus sampai matang. Coba bayangkan tekstur yang lembut dari ubi tersebut bercampur dengan manisnya gula merah tersebut – enak!

Paling enak makannya pas lagi hangat-hangat. Tetapi walalupun sudah dingin, juga tetap enak sih. Saya dan teman-teman cukup beruntung bisa mencobanya ketika kami berkunjung ke Buton Tengah beberapa bulan lalu. Selain disuguhi Kadampi ini oleh teman kami, kami juga disuguhi beberapa kudapan khas Buton Tengah lainnya.

Kadampi in the Nomination List of API Awards 2021

Kadampi is certainly an asset of Buton Tengah that is overlooked. Not many people heard of it besides those who live in Southeast Sulawesi, probably. This year, Buton Tengah hope to make another achievement at API Awards 2021. If you think Kadampi should make a name at API Awards 2021, here are few ways to make it happens!

Kadampi merupakan sebuah kekayaan yang dimiliki oleh Buton Tengah yang kurang mendapat perhatian. Barangkali yang pernah mendengar dan mencoba Kadampi ini hanya masyarakat yang bertempat tinggal di area Sulawesi Tenggara.
