For the upcoming fasting month for the Muslims, Berjaya Waterfront Hotel Johor Bahru is all armed and ready with their Selera Kampung Nusantara Buffet Dinner for the buka puasa season at Salt n’ Pepper Restaurant. This year, Berjaya invites you to have a taste of authentic Indonesian dishes made of indigenous ingredients prepared by its Indonesian chefs.
Upon entering, your mind is automatically set to Indonesian mood especially with its décor dotted all over the restaurant. Follow the dining tables where two rows of dishes face each other and further up, are the live cooking stalls. “Some of the Indonesian dishes from its origin require it to be prepared fresh as it tastes better,” said Chef Janry Sihotang, making the effort to ensure the food is as close as it is dished out at their place of origin. The stalls include savoury ‘Asinan Jakarta’, ‘Ketoprak Cirebon’ and ‘Pecel Madium’.
Fans of lamb and mutton are in for a treat, as the Indonesians have their own way of roasting called ‘Kambing Tunggek’ and ‘Kambing Tongseng’, where the latter is braised in spices that are earthier and grown all over Southeast Asia. ‘Rendang sapi’ is cooked rich of Indonesian-only found spice, the perfect match with a plate of fragrant white rice or choices of rice like Nasi Liwet – rich with spices and Nasi Kuning – if you’re feeling celebratory as its traditionally served in Indonesia for occasions. With all the different flavours, end your meal with a dessert specially made to quench your fasting thirst – the Es Sultan Banten.
