Indonesian Food Festival @ Zende, Seri Pacific Kuala Lumpur

Indonesian cuisine requires no introduction in the arena of gastronomy and it is one of the most loved foods by Malaysians as well as internationals.  Whether it’s exotic local street food or the elegance of fine dining, Indonesia seems to have it all.  

This country that many considered one of the richest and most diverse grounds in the world, has a huge variation of food fare with some being reflected as unique to the place itself.  Reputed as having cuisines that are most vibrant and colourful, they are very much adored for the intense flavours.

Zende Indonesian Food Festival

We went to Matta fair last weekend and decided to have dinner at Seri Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur as they are having Indonesia Food Festival from 4 September 2015 until 11 September 2015. The Indonesia Food Festival is jointly hosted by the Ministry of Tourism Indonesia.

We were treated to some Cultural Performances presented by the Ministry of Tourism Indonesia throughout our meal.

There are several types of rojak and Rojak Pengantin is one of them. It consists of all raw ingredients to be mixed together and eaten immediately. 

Sweet offerings are some of the most exuberant in South East Asia and Zende’s dessert counter will be  filled to the brim with sweets such as Kue Lumpur, Surabi Bandung, Nagasari, Lalampa, Sosis Solo, Limpang Limpung Pisang and many more.

Kue Lumpur


Out of these 3 Indonesian desserts, I find Lalampa to be the most interesting. It is sticky rice with ikan tongkol on it. Lemon grass gives the ikan tongkol a very distinguish flavour and aroma. 


Ayden enjoyed the wide variety of cakes for dessert. 

Besides Indonesia food, there are also dimsum, sushi and pasta station that seems to be a hit with the kids as they can’t take too much of spicy food. 





Cultural Performances presented by the Ministry of Tourism Indonesia.

Ethan and Ayden enjoyed the dance performances very much. 

The buffet is also inclusive of free flow of hot drinks from the vending machine. 

I had Teh Tarik while enjoying the dance performances. 

Darling opt to have Black Tea instead.

    That is nice to have pasta and dimsum section as it is true. Some Indonesian food could be too spicy or rich with spices to kids’ liking.
