"Tampatan" Discovery

Featured Sabah Dishes

Traditional Kadazan cuisine makes excellent use of a variety of wild jungle ingredients such as bamboo shoots and palm sago, yet employs little use of oil. From simple appetizers of unripe mango with prawn paste, salt and chili to a variety of pickled foods collectively known as “noonsom”, tangy and pungent flavours from souring agents or fermentation techniques is a key characteristic of traditional Kadazan cooking.

Inspired by the destination and curated by local culinary talents, our Taste of Discovery dishes showcasing local or “Tampatan” specialties aim to stimulate your taste buds.

Engage your palate with the flavours of salt, vinegar, spicy and sweet through such traditional gastronomic creations as the Hinava, Pinasakan, Tiger Prawn in Banana Leaf, Ayam Bambangan, Tampatan Trio and Sago Special.

The specialties are now introduced at the Latest Recipe Restaurant. Please speak to our service associates to know more about them.
