These are only a sample of the exotic food in Sabah. I am not able to show in this blog because they do not belong to my family's culture. If I were able to taste and take photos of them, I would like to post it here. Le Meridian buffer dinner, sometimes presents ambuyat and inava. At Gracepoint food court, you may try some but I myself dare not try because they are for the dusun people. Probably, not to my taste. Inava is different because it is similar to the Japanese raw fish.

Fried Cuttle Fish and Assam Fish Head from Restauran Melaka at Kampung Air Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
May not be exotic enough but they are among the most delicious I have ever tasted with such unique taste not found any where. It must be the cook.
Despite the name of the restauran, I can't seem to be able to find this taste in Malacca itself. It is actually a chinese restaurant but these are cooked in Malay styles.
My wife had failed to replicate these dishes despite trying so hard and we have tried other restaurants but to no avail. These food could have inspired by the Malaccan dishes but had been modified by the cook to make it truly Sabahan.

Rice Biryani may not be an exotic food because it is widely found but this particular biryani is among the best that I had tasted so far regardless of price. This Lamb Curry Biryani costs RM6 which makes it among the cheapest and yet it is delicious and full.
You can get it at Azmeer Restaurant at Mile , Jalan Utara, Sandakan and you can eat at its air-conditioned room.
