A taste of Indonesia

A taste of Indonesia

 

 

Rijsttafel is a Dutch word that literally translates as "rice table”. The Indonesian Rijsttafel is an elaborate meal that has been adopted by the Dutch and it consists of many side dishes served as small portions, all accompanied by rice that is prepared in several different ways.

 

 

Around the 18th century it was custom to provide a festive type of meal that would represent the multi-ethnic nature of the Indonesian archipelago. Dishes were assembled from many of the far flung regions of Indonesia, where many different cuisines exist. 

 

 

Our Indonesian rijsttafel is a well balanced combination of 10 dishes, plus condiments:


Rendang daging, softly stewed and caramelised beef



Ikan Rica Rica, stewed fish in a spicy sauce
(Don't like fish? Exchange it for chicken saté)
