Newly Appointed Executive Chef Showcase A Full-time Passion… And Getting Together To Work Towards Excellence!

Liu Soon Yoong, newly appointed Executive Chef of The Klagan Regency @1Borneo Kota Kinabalu says that being executive chef in a hotel means keeping an eye on everything and being everywhere at once.

“Naturally an executive chef also relies on top staff because try as you might, you cannot at the same time run tastings to ensure quality of each and every food that comes out from the kitchen, makes sure that the right raw food stuffs reach the kitchen and that the cooks and pastry chefs follow the chef’s instructions, prepare food from 1 to 1500 people, manage budgets and actually get behind the stoves, which is all too seldom but always a real pleasure!” commented Chef Yoong.  The appointment adds another layer of local and sustainable flavor to both the banquet and restaurant menus.

With over 22 years of global culinary experience across various renowned hotels and restaurants, Chef Yoong with his creativity and innovation leads the kitchen brigade in providing guests with the most exquisite dining experience in the hotel’s restaurants and ballroom.

Narendra Sinniah, General Manager shared, “Chef Yoong passionately works on local traditional and “from scratch” recipes creating new and exciting menu options giving a burst surprising flavor combinations.”

This is especially true around the holiday season. It’s a season to gather and celebrate, and at the centre of that celebration is food.

All Sabahans living away from home, miss one other thing almost as much as they miss their family and friends, and that is food.


Sure, we have our Christmas dinners of turkey, stuffing, cakes and custard. But come the morning after, heads heavy from all that bubbly, we bee line to the nearest fish head noodle, sup pipin or ngiu chap. That’s just the Sabahan way.

当然,沙巴的圣诞晚餐也有火鸡、馅饼、蛋糕以及蛋奶冻等等传统的圣诞菜肴。而新的一天清晨开始,沙巴汉最想要的应该还是鱼头米粉 、pipin汤面或者牛杂,这是沙巴汉的早餐。


For a little more kick out but still sticking to our Asian flavours, we recommend Thaily in Lido Plaza (Lot 3, Ground floor, Kedai Lido Plaza, Penampang).

Owned by a husband and wife duo, one being Thai and another Sabahan, expect homely Thai flavours and a warm Sabahan welcome. It’s so good that you could Thaily, daily. Pun intended.



One exciting thing about being away and coming back is getting reacquainted to all your favourite spots. A little hide out for brunch and coffee, befitting of its name, Sabahans that are away will be surprised to find that their favourite Nook (No 8 Lorong Dewan) is growing beyond its little nook and cranny. Expanding to a much bigger space but still along Jalan Dewan, look for nook in the New Year.

Kampung Nelayan

And if you are looking for one last gathering before you ring in the year, Kampung Nelayan(Jalan Kolam, Bukit Padang) is a classic choice. It doesn’t get more nostalgic than the wooden boarded floors, floating boat restaurant and live seafood here. Where the 7.30pm cultural dance gives you a fun experience of feeling like tourist in your own town for a night. They have amazing varieties of Seafood to savoir your taste-bud.

临近2017年的终结, 又有什么美味菜肴是你最想要品尝的呢?位于武吉巴登(Bukit Padang)的Kampung Nelayan 餐厅就是品味怀旧与经典的最佳选择,餐厅建材以木板为主依水而建,外观有如浮在岸边船,除了各式各样生猛海鲜供顾客选择,傍晚7时30分又有本地传统文化舞蹈表演,可谓视觉与味觉的双重享受。
