Tip Top Restaurant
Looking out on to the Kosuhui beach on the shores of Simpang Mengayau, is Tampat Do Aman’s restaurant Tip Top. Although separated from the jungle camp, there is a regular shuttle bus service that links the beach with the Jungle Camp accommodations. On the menu, Tip Top offers an explorative mixture of local Sabah food; Rungus, Malay, Chinese and familiar western dishes.
Howard’s wife Lorina handles the kitchen with her staff of local Kudat ladies, where together they cook and exchanges culinary ideas and recipes with guest. It’s an intimate experience at Tip Top, where no one is left feeling like a stranger. Most of their ingredients are brought in locally from the nearby markets in Kudat, ensuring only the freshest produce used.
Seafood dinners are also available with a prior’s day notice. Nevertheless, their priority in serving the environment is kept in the kitchens as well, as they only serve Open Ocean Pelagic fish. A wooden deck embraces the rays of day light and sunsets, as guest lay around and take in the beauty and peace of the Tip of Borneo.
