Starting from the appetizer, Karabu Dendeng, processed beef with a consistent slice, then served with lettuce and coconut milk that gives a spicy flavor. Soup Arsik Gindara is also a recommendation that you should try. Prepared fish in the soup thick yellow soup of spices with andaliman (flowering plant from citrus family) that has a distinctive aroma.
Tuna Natinombur with a super-beautiful presentation, perfect red tuna color with soft, fresh texture. Menu that became the favorite of all guests at lunch this time like Kambing Masak Aceh, a braised lamb with spices and Sate Rembige , a beef skewers certainly make everybody addicted. I was impressed with the super-tender quality of lamb, the consistent cuts and the fragrant aroma.
Nusa Indonesian Gastronomy offers an exclusive dinner sensation with a real gourmet menu, but during the day, it's a little different where visitors will feel more casual and relax dining. Also note here is not provided alcohol drinks, but visitors can enjoy it with a request before. Without alcohol, i did enjoy a variety of interesting Indonesian mocktail such as one of the Sayur Asem which is normally a classic Indonesian soup but become a drink that offer a unique and fun sensation.
