Each traditional recipe is prepared with the freshest ingredients and refined by our Chef’s culinary skills, bringing our customers to fascinating gastronomic journey of “One Thousand Flavors”.
First up, a Chinese-style Hokkien spring roll – deep fried crispy roll made of rice flour wrapper filled with sautéed vegetables and diced chicken. Filled with Hokkien style filling, so the chopped up vegetables remained moist despite heavy frying.
Selat popia (kueh pie tie) is a Peranakan starter originating from the Straits Chinese. Traditional crispy flour cup is filled with mix of sautéed vegetables, seafood, chicken and mushroom. Here it is eaten with a peanut sauce instead of the sweet soy sauce and chilli in Singapore or Malaysia.
Kotagede is a historic neighborhood in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Typically, sate is made with chicken or mutton. But this particular style of sate, made popular by a gentleman in Kotagede named Mbah Karyo, is called Satay Karang. Beef satay kotagede tries to replicate the same recipe that has been handed down three generations of Karyo – BBQ skewered marinated beef served with homemade peanut sauce and traditional chili soy sauce with pickles.
Black pepper squid Malioboro – crispy squid sautéed with bell pepper, onion and black pepper sauce. It is more Chinese than Indonesia, but Malioboro is a melting pot of cultures, so it is not surprising that it is sautéed with black pepper instead of a sambal base.
Beef rendang Minangkabau – popular North Sumatra slow cooked beef with blend of spices paste and coconut milk. The beef is fork tender and the sauce requires mandatory consumption with rice – very rich and tasty.
Kangkung balachan hotplate – sautéed morning glory with prawns and quail egg in traditional shrimp paste.
Claypot tofu Seribu Rasa – braised tofu, seafood, vegetable and mushroom with oyster sauce. Typical Chinese cooking.
Ayam goreng lengkuas – fried chicken marinated in traditional galangal spices West Sumatra style.
Spicy curry jumbo prawn – Jumbo prawn sautéed in their special curry sauce sprinkled with crispy haebee.
Everything is so saucy that we need to eat it with rice.
