AUTHENTIC Indonesian cuisine is the order of the day at the Oakwood Premier Joy~Nostalg Center Manila Nostalgia Dining Lounge from September 8 to 18. While geographically and ethnically similar, Indonesia and the Philippines each have their very distinct cuisines.
From ingredients that are identical to ours, Indonesians developed a cuisine that is both familiar yet exotic. From their use of spices and aromatics to their cooking techniques, there are lots to savor and enjoy from dishes that are distinctly, deliciously Indonesian. From nutty satay that is fall-off-the-stick tender to Indonesia’s literal mix-mix, Gado-Gado, to the tangy Mie Goreng, the extensive Indonesian buffet features their best-loved dishes and more.
Of course, nothing says authentic like having the dishes prepared by Indonesian chefs themselves. Nostalgia Dining Lounge flew in no less than Oakwood Premier Cozmo Jakarta Executive Chef Deden Suherman and Sous Chef Sulistyo Antonius to share their homegrown food and expertise to the Indonesian Food Fest. The chefs’ presence ensures that each dish served is kept faithfully, uniquely Indonesian.
Special set menus are available daily for lunch and dinner with a weekday lunch buffet at only P999 net.
Nostalgia Dining Lounge is on the sixth floor of Oakwood Premier, along 17 ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. For reservations, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
