Oakroom Restaurant Hosts “Indonesian Food Festival”

Having started the other day, the week-long “Indonesian Food Festival” hosted by Oakroom Restaurant (Oakwood Hotel in Ortigas) will run until the 21st of September.

Sata Ayam (Appetizer)

Delight in the diversity of Indonesian cuisine and the combined influence from its neighboring countries. Discover authentic Indonesian food from the islands of Java, Sumatra and Bali as prepared by Executive Chef Deden Suherman and Chef de Partie Sulistyo who both came from Oakwood Premier Cozmo Jakarta for this festivity.

This is my first time to have a full authentic Indonesian meal prepared by an Indonesian chef and it was a good experience. I also found some similarly equivalent dishes from our own like the Sop Buntut which I can compare with how ‘bulalo’ is cooked in the Philippines since Indonesia is a fellow South East Asian country.

For starters, we had “The Temptation” appetizer set which consists of:

  • Tahu Asi (stuffed tofu inside crisp breading-P295++);
  • Asinan Sayuran (refreshing serving of sliced fresh vegetables with cold sweet and sour soup – P295++)
  • Sate Ayam  (flavorful chicken skewers with thick peanut sauce – P395++)

For the main dishes, we first had Gado Gado (P350++), a plateful of mixed boiled vegetables with peanut sauce at the center. It can pass as an appetizer as well, actually. 🙂 (Top Photo)

This was immediately followed by the warm oxtail soup called Sop Buntut (P425++).

Things heated up again with the serving of spicy beef stew called Rendang Daging (P525++).

It was then concluded by Ikan Asam Pedas (P495++), a Western Sumatra spicy-sour fish dish.

The dessert set was: Sweet Es Cendol (rice flour  with coconut milk and brown sugar sauce – P225++) and Pisang Goren (fried banana topped with brown sugar – P225++). The Es Cendol is their version of our Halo-Halo.

I had both hot and cold ginger-based drinks called Bajigur (P175++) and Wedang Jahe (P175++), respectively. The former is a combination of coffee, coconut milk, brown sugar, and ginger, while the latter has boiled grilled ginger, lemon grass, clove, cinnamon, and brown sugar as well.

Other available dishes you could try in the Indonesian Food Festival include Bakwan Udang (vegetable fritters with shrimp P395), Mie Goreng (Indonesian Fried Noddles P375), Opor Ayam (Chicken cooked with coconut milk P325).

For other desserts and drinks, they also have  Ketan Sikayo (boiled sticky rice with pandan custard P225), and Sekoteng (boiled ginger, lemon grass, clove, white sugar,carnation milk, with fresh bread cubes, peanuts, mung beans and tapioca pearls P175).
