Break your fast or prepare for the day ahead with offerings ranging from classical Batavian snacks to high tea menus, served at the hotel’s array of dining establishments
To welcome the holy month of Ramadan, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta presents a special festive experience titled The Essence of Ramadan, which runs from April 12 until May 11. On offer are various culinary delicacies and festive hampers served amid elegant decorations invoking the blessings of this special month.
The Essence of Ramadan starts at SATOO. The restaurant now features adornments inspired by Batavian and Middle Eastern culture, then further enhanced by golden palm trees, silk curtains and other décor elements. Those seeking to break the fast at SATOO will find an assortment of classical takjil fare such as dates and kolak pisang, Batavian snacks like the sweet gemblong, and savoury dishes such as Jakarta’s very own kerak telor at the assisted buffet.
SATOO’s Iftar assisted buffet is nothing short of exceptional. Offerings range from local favourites like Soto Betawi, an impressive spread of Middle Eastern dishes and – for guests more inclined towards sweets – plenty of dessert options. The latter also showcases Batavian specialties along with quintessential Middle Eastern desserts such as Pistachio Baklava. The assisted Iftar buffet at SATOO is available daily at rates starting from IDR 458,000++ per person.
While Batavian and Middle Eastern cuisine have always been the go-to choices for Ramadan – especially the latter – there are plenty of other options for those looking to break the fast at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta. Rosso, the hotel’s signature Italian restaurant, invites you to end the daily fast with everything from premium antipasti to Asian fusion dishes such as Rendang Pizza and Beef Sambal Matah, followed by delectable desserts such as the restaurant’s famed Espresso Tiramius. Rosso’s assisted Iftar buffet will also be served daily at IDR 458,000++ per person.
Or perhaps you might want to vary your breakfasting menu with, say, hearty dim sum? For that, head to JIA, the hotel’s famed Chinese restaurant, where classic Seafood Fried Rice with XO sauce and other delicacies also await. Prices start at IDR 368,000++ per person.
Meanwhile, if you head over to Lobby Lounge, you can experience the exclusive Sunset High Tea. Available every day throughout Ramadan, the Sunset High Tea offer includes high-quality tea and coffee blends, along with sweet and savoury finger foods. Prices start at IDR 230,000++ per person.
Of course, Ramadan is also a month for sharing, and Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta has quite a few tantalizing offers to be experienced with friends and family. Case in point would be the Ramadan Calendar, which consists of 30 handmade stuffed premium dates in a variety of flavours and is available at SATOO Deli at IDR 699,000+. There’s also a wide array of festive hampers featuring curated delicacies available at the deli.
Beyond buffets and hampers, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta has plenty of other special offers to help you enjoy this year’s Ramadan, from in-room dining options for both suhoor and iftar, the Blissful Ramadan staycation packages, and – for the grand finale – the hotel’s popular Eid Al-Fitr feast at the culmination of the holy month.
