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.

The Junk is the mother of all outlets in Kuching. Restaurant, bar, club, live music venue, it is a warren of spaces tunneled out of four adjacent shophouses in a row of entertainment outlets where Junk was the pioneer. Its décor is a labour of love, filled with memorabilia collected over a lifetime so there is always something to look at even if you are not kept busy observing the crowd. Friday and Saturday nights are perpetually rammed to the rafters and there is something for everyone’s taste from local bands to lively DJ. Originally a restaurant, it is still a firm favourite for birthdays and special occasions or even just a mid-week slice of stone-baked pizza. Portions are enormous so prepare to share (and split the price) and then sit back and enjoy the atmosphere that is uniquely Junk.
