Riyadh, March 18, 2009
Riyadh’s leading luxury hotel, Al Faisaliah, a Rosewood Hotel, is hosting a 10-day Indonesian food festival.
The Indonesian Food and Cultural Festival will be held from March 18 to 27 at La Brasserie restaurant.
On the final day of the festival, the restaurant will raffle off a holiday for two in Indonesia. The package features round-trip tickets with Garuda Indonesia Airlines from Riyadh to Jakarta and Bali, with a three-night stay at the Sanur Beach Hotel in Bali.
The festival, which coincides with the 60th anniversary of Garuda Indonesia Airlines, will be attended by Dr Salim Segaf Al Jufri, the Ambassador of Indonesia to Saudi Arabia, who will inaugurate the event’s launch.
“Hotel guests and Riyadh residents will be able to sample authentic Indonesian dishes in a festive atmosphere, a very entertaining option for families,” said Wolfgang O Pachler, managing director for Al Faisaliah Hotel.
La Brasserie has been transformed into an authentic Indonesian environment featuring traditional music and decorations. Dance performances by the Indonesian School in Riyadh and Indonesian Rosewood staff will take place on the opening night.
A mix of buffet selections and live-cooking stations will represent the diverse cuisines of Java, Sumatra, and Bali as well as dishes representing the culinary styles of Indonesia’s 6,000 inhabited islands.
