The style of the serving of the rice table as proof of the colonial heritage of Indonesia – with authentic recipes – is the reason why Indrapura restaurant in Amsterdam is so popular. That writes the renowned Indonesian chef William Wongso cook in Garuda Inflight Magazine, a publication of the Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

Wongso writes positiv about the Indrapura rice table with fifteen different types of serving other dishes. Wongso: “Examples include spicy fried potato wedges, chicken in thick curry sauce, according to Indonesian cuisine prepared with caramelized Rendang beef, chicken satay and marinated lamb chops (etc, etc). But the winner of all was the lobster in an exotic coconut sauce. This was the highlight of the dining experience. The cost – 45.00 Euro per person – was worth every penny. Enjoy your Indonesian dining experience. ”
