Pat is a fantastic tour guide, I wish we had done this at the beginning of our time in KK - we learnt so much about Sabahan food & the spices used to flavour it at the market. His mother is also absolutely amazing and was so welcoming into her restaurant. She taught us to make two meals which we... More

We were met by Pat at the organised time. We then went on a tour of the main sites around the city including the floating mosque for photos (we didn't go inside) and up to Signal Hill Observatory for a great view of KK. Next stop was to the Handicraft market for some shopping then on to the fresh produce... More

After checking out fish market he shared a lot of local history as he drove us to his mother's restaurant. She shared several cooking tips and we helped prepare a chicken dish... More

We were very happy with the fabulous service and food experienced. Pat was away so his sister Melina picked us up and took us to the markets in KK to buy some fresh supplies of food and seafood before heading out of town to their mother's restaurant. What a character, she entertained us while we prepared two dishes together and... More

What a day! Our host picked us up from the hotel and took us back to the food markets in KK where he guided us thru the maze of local foods and spices all the time keeping us amused with his local knowledge. We then ventured into the seafood markets where we learnt the difference between good & bad quality... More

A really fantastic day spent with Pat and his lovely family. Pat (and his little boy Kimmi) collected us directly from our hotel and took us to the market where he showed us traditional meat, fish, vegetables, herbs and spices. Such an experience and well worth a visit whether on tour or travelling alone. We then drove to his mother's... More

From the moment Pat picked us up we immediately felt like family. His little boy Kimi was with him too and we chatted all the way to both local Fruit & Veg and fresh Fish Markets. These were amazing, the spices, coffee, teas and exotic fruits and then the unusual fishes and crabs took our breath away. Once we had... More
