If you’re looking for authentic Kadazandusun fare in a contemporary setting, we’ve found The Place for you!
Whet your appetite with a variety of pusas or appetizers. One of the most popular picks iss the Hinava – a tangy salad-like dish in which raw fish (usually mackerel, but tuna can also be used) is cooked by the acidity of lime juice, ginger, diced red onions, sliced chillies, salt and grated Bambangan (a type of wild mango) seed. They also have the option of Prawn Hinava. Linugu (grilled beef and chicken platter) comes highly recommended, dipped in local chili padi to spice things up.
The Place 2 takes pride in using local and wildly-grown ingredients so rest assured, everything is freshly prepared each day.
The Aramaitii Soup is a must try! Diners may have a love-hate relationship due to its pungent smell which comes from the use of Tuhau (a type of wild ginger with a formidable scent) and Bambangan.
Diners can choose between the fish or seafood option . Another local favourite is deep fried Basung (a type of fish), served with (you guessed it) tuhau and bambangan. Dip it into some chilli and lime juice and you’re good to go! Also on the menu are regular favourites such as the Nasi Goreng Kampung (fried rice), grilled chicken chop, fish and chips, lamb chop or a good ol’ steak.
The restaurant can accommodate 60 diners at a time and they cater for all events and parties. Being a family-friendly establishment, smoking is only permitted at night after busy dining hours. Come sundown, break out the karaoke and channel your inner Mariah Carey. !
