Sumba's Culinary

INDULGE YOUR CURIOUS TASTEBUDS
Sumbanese Food & Drinks culture are influenced by Indonesian cuisine and also its crop production. Rice, an Indonesian national staple food is now also part of the Sumbanese meal. However, there plenty of other grains such as corn, cassava, that they consume along side. In East Sumba, the consumption of fish is relatively high due to the proximity to the sea and its fishing culture. In Sumba due to its numerous volume, the locals fermented the sap of Palm Tress to produce an alcoholic drink called Peci using traditional method;

Catch of the Day

Surrounded by water means we are blessed with options of fish and seafood to eat. The traditional methods to cook fish here in Sumba are to cook in Sour Soup (Kuah Asam) or to grill. During their seasons, we can find seafood ranging from prawns & clams to crab & lobsters. They are simply grilled or steamed for the best taste.

3C’s: CORN, CASSAVA & CASHEW

Traditionally Sumbanese eat corn & root vegetable such as cassava as their staple diet. They grind the corn into cornmeal and cook it with water. Nowadays, for a better taste, they mix rice into their cornmeal. Root vegetable such as cassava are consumed fully from their leaves to their roots. Example of use for this versatile vegetable are boiling/steaming the leaves and thinly slicing and frying the roots to make cassava chips. Cashews Trees are plentiful in Sumba, they make many different types of snack using this ingredients.

Sweeter Tropical Fruits

The nutrients contained in the soil in Sumba is relatively high which makes tropical fruits such as soursop, dragon fruit, mango much sweeter in comparison to their cousins found in another island in Indonesia. Fruits in Sumba can be found seasonally and best to be consumed during their seasons.

Moke

Moke is produced in a tradional method by fermenting a sap of a Palm Tree. Moke is often consumed and associated with a special occasion such as wedding, or even just to welcome special guests to their homes. You can try our Moke-Inspired Cocktail at our Beach Lounge & Restaurant.

We didnt stay overnigh, just spent there full day in the restaurant/bar. Staff was extremly friendly and helpful, food was one of the best in Sumba. Resort itself was clean and well organized. I would definitelly stay overnight next time. Super isolated location by the long beach.
