June 17th, 2016. Fast breaking is really really happening every night. That night I got a couple invitations but I had to choose, right? So yeah, I came to one of my favourite hotel. Sailendra at JW Marriott Hotel.
“This Ramadan season, JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta features the festivity of Moroccan, Turkish, Lebanese and Egypt dishes as the offer for Ramadan breakfasting in our award winning Sailendra Restaurant” said Karan Berry, General Manager of JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta. Middle Eastern dishes are known for their richness in taste and heritage. It will be highlighted during the holy month of Ramadan, from 6 June to 6 July 2016 at Sailendra Restaurant.
To complete these four authentic delicacies, Sailendra will serve Indonesian traditional tajil to break the fast and the well-known Sailendra’s international buffet array, among others are the famous tandoori chicken, sup buntut, sushi and sashimi, wood-fired oven pizza, and many more.
I always feel welcome in Sailendra and JW Marriott Hotel. The hospitality and the ambiance. Feel like at home. Well, actually I came a little late that night. I had another event in the afternoon. I met few besties and came to an invitation. After that, blame the traffic jam hahaha. Well, before it, we dropped by at some place to have drink and snack. Then, he dropped me in front of JW Marriott. And I ran. I was so late. LOL.
In welcoming the fasting month, the award winning Restaurant will take you to the adventure of delicious dishes to break the fast from different countries. Start the culinary journey from the opening of the holy month until 12 June with a lineup of mouth-watering Moroccan breakfasting dishes. Moroccan food is known for its extensive use of spices and Mediterranean fruits and vegetables. Influenced by a rich and diverse North African history, Moroccan dishes ranging from surprisingly simple to intriguingly complex. Sample the aromatic and spicy food of the vibrant country, such as spiced lamb shanks with prunes and chicken tagine with preserved lemon green olives and thyme.
Turkish food has the extra privilege of being at the cross-roads of the Far-East and the Mediterranean. All these unique characteristics and history have bestowed upon the Turkish Cuisine a rich and varied number of dishes.
