Ep 2: Gaya Island, Kota Kinabalu

(Updated: )

The residents of Kampung Kesuapan on Gaya Island come from generations of sea gypsies from Southern Philippines, known as the Bajau. Home cooks Zaiton and Jalinah show us their traditional cuisine - creamy pufferfish stew, umami sea urchin rice and tender tapioca cakes. These are the bastions of proud migrant cuisine going strong in a water village that is shunned by the Kota Kinabalu mainland.
