The important guests upon arrival

Sarawakian cultural dance

Sample the distinctive and authentic dishes of Sarawak as Guest Chef Jamilah, who has flown from Hilton Kuching, will be sharing her vast knowledge and skill here. Famed for its multi-ethnic population of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Penan, Kayan and other indigenous people, the culinary palate hints slight influences from each culture.

Contrary to West Malaysian food, Sarawak cuisine is less spicy, lightly prepared and subtle yet just in taste. Due to its geographic location, fresh seafood and sparingly used of natural plants such as turmeric, lemongrass, ginger, lime, and tapioca leaves are common ingredients in East Malaysian cuisine. Not only the ingredients are easy available, they also give another aromatic dimension, texture and freshness to the delicacies.

Time to dig in! 😛
