When in Sabah, seafood should be No.1 on the foodie’s list. Tavern Kitchen & Bar will delight seafood lovers with our gourmet seafood dishes, prepared with the freshest high-quality seafood procured from Pasar Besar Kota Kinabalu daily. Sample our traditional, western and creative fusion dishes. You can be sure that we serve only the best cuisine for your dining pleasure.
If you want to try a little of everything, order our Surf Platter, which comes with a succulent selection of fish of the day, scallops, mussels and shrimps, battered and deep fried to a light and crispy texture, and served with our special sauce and fries.
If salmon is your favourite fish, you must try our signature Royal Grilled Salmon, served with potato croquettes and salad. The fishiness of the salmon is removed by our special Tavern sauce, which is made from a unique blend of local herbs and spices. Each forkful encapsulates the full flavours of both fish and sauce, merged to produce a divine combination of taste.
If you adore salmon as well as ramen, you should try another of our creative signature dishes – Salmon Ramen Wrap. House-baked seasoned salmon cuts are wrapped with ramen and grilled vegetables in a soft tortilla wrap.
Teriyaki lovers will adore our Sweet Teriyaki Salmon, teriyaki marinated salmon grilled just right and served with tuhau fried rice and salad. Tuhau is a traditional delicacy of the Kadazan Dusun people of Sabah. A local appetizer made from wild ginger, it is prepared from the shoots of the ginger-like species Etlingera coccinea, and usually served pickled and consumed with white rice.
Salmon in Puff Pastry is another delightful salmon dish available at Tavern Kitchen & Bar. Succulent marinated salmon chunks are wrapped and baked in flaky, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth pastry. It’s a light meal or a tea-time treat packed full of healthy fish protein.
We also have some creative crab dishes for your enjoyment. Sample our Crab-Bu – spicy, buttery soft shell crab served with seaweed kerabu! Seaweed kerabu, a type of local seaweed salad, is a local delicacy that all tourists and visitors to Sabah must try.
