A Gastronomic Symphony of Flavors

Tuna Magelang

Prepare your taste buds for a feast like no other as you savor a meticulously crafted "Four Hands'' tasting menu. Delight in signature dishes such as 'Iga Bakar,' Sumatran beef short ribs marinated and braised to perfection with kecap manis, garlic, coriander, chilis, and tamarind, then grilled and glazed with caliandra honey. Experience the exquisite 'Tuna Tartare Magelang,' served on arak-battered betel leaf, and savor the flavors of 'Lawar Belimbing,' a Tabanan delicacy, alongside cherished Indonesian classics. Elevating this epicurean adventure is a special arak tasting experience by Karusotju, an artisanal Balinese arak distillery rooted in age-old traditions and local ingredients.

A Feast for the Senses

Beyond the palate, immerse yourself in an evening of artistry and culture. The event will feature a mesmerizing performance by Kita Poleng, drawing inspiration from the essence of traditional Balinese dance while weaving in contemporary movements, costumes, and theater.
