In celebration of Indonesia’s 74th Independence Day,  Archipelago International, Indonesia’s leading hotel management group, will be offering special dishes and menus across the country at various hotels, drawing culinary inspiration from across the archipelago.

Indonesian cuisine is widely recognized as one of the best in the world, with variations of its unique dishes spanning different regions and cultural influences. With more than 300 ethnic groups across the vast country, Indonesian cuisine is as diverse as its far-reaching landscapes, ranging from sweet and salty, to sour, spicy and slightly bitter. Out of 5,350 traditional Indonesian recipes, 30 are considered to be the most important, including the ever-popular nasi goreng, gado-gado, satay, and soto. These signature dishes have become so ubiquitous nationwide, they are now considered national dishes, not only favored by local residents but by visitors, too.

As a show of pride and love for Indonesia, as well as a dedication to reintroduce and promote authentic Indonesian cuisine, more than 100 Archipelago International hotels will be presenting and parading their interpretations of Indonesian food at the hotel’s restaurants. Served up from conceptual food trucks, all hotels will offer various kinds of finger food and Indonesian staples to inquisitive guests, including sate maranggi

, batagor, bubur srintil, cilok, gado-gado, pempek, and many more.

“Indonesian food is one of the most vibrant and colorful cuisines in the world, full of intense flavor and spices. With Indonesian Independence Day on the horizon, we say there’s no better time to taste and celebrate the many kinds of Indonesian food from across the country, in the best possible atmosphere. By hosting this nationwide event to honor Indonesia’s Independence Day, we hope that we can further spread the richness and variety of Indonesia’s culinary craft,” said Winston Hanes, Director of Operations.
