Various Malay-Indian joints and Chinese restaurants specialising in seafood line the 'Semporna Seafront'. A number of these seafood restaurants have been implicated in cooking seafood illegally gathered in Tun Sakaran Marine Park. If you want to sample nasi lemak (rice boiled in coconut milk, served with fried ikan bilis, peanuts and a curry dish) or korchung (rice dumplings), Semporna is well known for these two dishes.
