Discover a world of Indonesian flavour that totally eclipses your basic Bali beach feed, when the Shangri-La kicks off its inaugural Taste of Indonesia food festival today.
Cafe Mix will become the ultimate Indo dining destination, hosting sumptuous buffet spreads at lunch and dinner daily until the event wraps up next Saturday, August 12. They've brought in the big guns, too, with guest chefs Nur Budiono and Marjono from Jakarta's own Shangri-La flying in to work their culinary magic in the kitchen.
Expect a parade of rich and vibrant plates as the pair shares a snapshot of authentic, regional fare and sends tastebuds island-hopping across their homeland. Fiery bursts of chilli and spice throughout national dishes like beef rendang, soto ayam, and gado gado are guaranteed to make you forget all about the chilly winter temperatures outside. Just be sure to leave room for the feast's final chapter, so you can get acquainted with traditional desserts like surabi (coconut milk pancakes) and onde onde (coconut-coated rice cakes).
Get your 'Taste of Indonesia' at Cafe Mix, from Friday, August 4 to Saturday, August 12. The buffet lunch is on offer from 12–2.30pm for $55 per person, and the buffet dinner is available from 6–10.30pm for $85 per person.
