Ramadan Feast Set, Warung Turki Shisha Lounge, South Jakarta

Bahasa l English

Ramadan is already the third of the week, it doesn't feel like time flies and Eid is not long enough to be welcomed. This month, my opportunity to break the fast in several places was quite a different experience compared to a previous year where all people were prohibited from being dine-in due to the pandemic in 2020.

I used to break the fast at the hotel, this time at one of my favorite Turkish restaurants in Jakarta. Warung Turki has been established in 2015 where you will feel an interesting atmosphere like a house in original Turkey. In this month of Ramadan, Warung Turki specifically serves a set menu with a variety of Turkish specialties.

This set menu is complete from Appetizer, Main Course and Dessert. There are 3 choices with different dish variants. This time I tried Feast Set 3 with an appetizer: Hummus, a kind of savory jam made with Middle Eastern beans. Then Babaganuc, processed eggplant that is baked until it is smoky with a fresh taste. Gavurdagi Salatasi, this is a typical Turkish salad with various ingredients such as cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, olive oil, nuts, and others. Gozleme Mini, a delicious Turkish-style filled flatbread. Chicken Borek, this is also one of Turkey's favorite appetizers, pastry filled with chicken.

After that proceed with the main menu which also consists of several dishes: Butter Rice, Yayla Lamb, lamb meat that is processed into a patty with fragrant herbs and spices and the right savory taste. Soğanlı Tavuk, chicken with onions. Bademli Balik, salmon that has been marinated and then grilled so that it has a fragrant aroma. Zeytinyağlı Fasulye, green beans cooked with onions, olive oil, and tomatoes.

There always a time for dessert, Kunefe, a traditional Middle Eastern dish using unleavened filo pastry which is usually used to make baklava with a sweet taste and layer of Turkish cheese. It has a crunchy and cheesy texture with the right creamy and sweet taste, it's really delicious to enjoy when it's warm. This is my first time tasting this dish.

The overall experience of enjoying a meal here is always memorable. Each dish uses ingredients that match Turkish dishes, as well as the spices and seasonings used. Some of the ingredients are brought directly from Turkey to maintain the original taste of food. This set menu costs IDR 350,000 ++ per person. With so many dishes, of course, a large serving for Indonesians. Don't forget, this restaurant has instagramable photo spots that can be interesting content and it's best to make reservations in advance.
