Travel is at the top of nearly everyone's 'to-do' list, and we all know one of the best parts of travelling is food. Discovering new cuisines and flavours in another pocket of the world is among life's greatest pleasures and yet life itself can get in the way — not to mention the stresses of navigating the airport and seeing the credit card bill upon your return.
Shangri-La, Sydney has the perfect solution that will take your taste buds to a world of spice and satisfaction without hopping on a flight. For eleven days this August, guest chefs from Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya will be taking over the kitchen at Cafe Mix to serve up sensational Southeast Asian cuisine for a dining experience dubbed A Taste of Indonesia.
For $65 on weekdays or $85 on weekends, you can indulge in a plethora of dishes, like a hearty beef rendang with hints of coconut and ayam goreng kalasan (a popular Indonesian fried chicken meal). Be sure to leave room for dessert: klepon (sweet rice balls with grated sugar), dadar gulung (pandan pancakes with sweet coconut filling) and other treats from chef Anna Polyviou.
You can book a table for A Taste of Indonesia for lunch (12–2.30pm) or dinner (6–9.30pm) between August 16–26.
