As part of Accor Culinary Journey, a year-long series of programs presenting the diverse culinary dishes of Indonesia, Accor hotels in greater Jakarta area offers special buffet and Jakarta-themed menu to celebrate the city's 492nd birthday anniversary.
During the media gathering, Accor brought out their chefs from participating Pullman, Grand Mercure, Novotel, Mercure, ibis style and ibis hotels for cooking tips sharing and demo. Guests were invited to take part in the cooking process of two highlighted dishes: the ever popular Soto Betawi and the rarely found Gabus Pucung.
The latter is named after Gabus (snakehead fish) and Pucung or Kluwak, a black colored spice. Even though it's hard to find in restaurants, this Betawi dish is included in the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Indonesia. Don't miss out on these dishes, as the program is only available until 31 June 2019.
