FEAST­ING ON TRA­DI­TION

DestinAsian - - FLASHBACK -

Hol­i­day­mak­ers in Bali can now head to The Seminyak Beach Re­sort & Spa for a taste of In­done­sia’s clas­sic multi-dish feast ri­jsttafel (lit­er­ally, “rice ta­ble”). Pre­sented in the pri­vate din­ing room ad­join­ing the re­sort’s Hem­ing­way-in­spired whisky and wine bar, Klass & Brass, the lav­ish spread—based on a din­ing tra­di­tion that dates back to Dutch colo­nial times—show­cases culi­nary spe­cial­ties from across the ar­chi­pel­ago in a dozen dishes rang­ing from Su­ma­tran beef ren­dang and seared tuna with sam­bal­matah (a ery Ba­li­nese condi­ment of shal­lots, lemon­grass, and co­conut oil) to perkedel ja­gung (sweet-corn frit­ters), sa­vory martabak, and cones of fra­grant yel­low rice, all served by a pro­ces­sion of ke­baya- clad wait­resses. Avail­able through­out the week, the In­done­sian Ri­jsttafel Cel­e­bra­tion re­quires reser­va­tions a day in ad­vance. The only other catch? You need to have at least eight peo­ple in your party. Af­ter all, there’s a lot of food to go around. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 62-361/730-814 or visit the­seminyak.com
