Lepau brings the flavours of the rainforest to the centre of the city. At one time, it was tricky to find this kind of cuisine in Kuching, reserved instead for a trip to the longhouse, but Lepau is one of the best in Kuching currently. Serving Kayan food, it depends on the freshest ingredients, sourced from the jungle – tempoyak, ferns, fish and chicken cooked in bamboo – its extensive menu does justice to Sarawak’s bounty. If nothing else, the local rice wrapped in leaves is a true Sarawak experience. Lepau understands its target market. It is decked out in intricate Kayan carving and hums to the lilting sound of the Sape, the full ethnic experience, except for pork, which is notably absent. But you can get a tipple of tuak! If you are visiting, this is the best place to ‘go native’ and if you live here and are long past due a trip up country, then try Lepau.
