Opening of the Indonesia week! There will be food!

What a lovely day on Monday, I went to the Markthal in Rotterdam. I was invited to attend the opening of the Indonesia week. With a couple of other food lovers and PR, we could experience the taste of Indonesia. This all together was held at Wah Nam Hong in the Markthal. They also serve Indonesian just for this week. Hurry up and check it out!

The day itself was split into parts. First we began with tasting food. My favorite part, hahaha
I can’t say no to that! The dishes were prepared by great chefs that are experienced with the Indonesian cuisine.

At first we got a soup braised with beef. The soup had some good flavors and you can really taste the beef. The soup is made by Rawon Surabaya by Yudi Yahva from Restaurant Rock Salt Chilli Pepper.

The next item we got was a Soto soup by chef Hendra Subandrio from Restaurant Blauw. It was very tasty soup with a very strong flavor, for me I think it had too much lemongrass in it.

After the soups we got something else. We got the Mie Goreng Aceh by Fitri Chandra from Sheraton (Amsterdam). The dish was well balanced, especially after two soups that has strong flavors. The Mie Goreng had pickeld vegetables and shrimp in it. Yummy!


I am ready!!!!

Then we got the Nasi Goreng Ayam Pete by Jimmy Lo Hamzah from Restaurant Bali James. The dish had a lot of flavors. Really well made and very nice. I think it is my most favorite dish of that day!


I am not the only one taking photos

Our tummies were filled and we went to do something else. We got something very interesting in front of us. We learned how to make tempeh. Actually never knew how it was made, it is nice to know now how it is made and it is very delicate procedure too. I think I will try it at home too.

Tempeh workshop, everyone is so focussed!

When we were done with the workshop, we were guided to a VIP room. There we had our time to enjoy various of Indonesian snacks and also traditional dances. It is nice to see everyone so relaxed and enjoying food. I had a few snacks, like the Pandan cupcakes and spring rolls.

    Hi Sam,
    Nice blog.
    Just a little correction, it’s actually pandan and not pandang ;-). And it took me quite a while to realized what it’s supposed to be.
    Pandan is a typical Indonesian flavour/scent from the pandan leaf.
    Pandang is an Indonesian word which means “to view/see”.
    So, definitely two different thing.
