This blessed month of Ramadan is a breath of fresh air for us when the Indonesian population carries out a vaccination process to deal with the spread of Covid-19 in the future. Maybe most of you certainly miss the moment of breaking your fast together that couldn't be done in 2020. But according to government regulations, this year breaking the fast can be done as long as you run the new normal protocol from hotels, restaurants, and the guests too.

This time I visited one of the luxury hotels in the Pondok Indah area which is certainly famous. InterContinental Jakarta presents an iftar experience with the theme of Royal Iftar, you will be presented with royal-style decorations in the Middle East so that it looks luxurious, gold colors adorn the room combined with charming crystal lamps in the ballroom of InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah.

At the Royal Iftar, InterContinental Jakarta collaborates with Chef Degan Septoadji, an experienced senior chef who was nominated for Best Asian Chef at the World Summit Singapore in 2012 and he is also better known as one of the judges on the famous cooking TV show, Masterchef Indonesia.

Here chef Degan serves several of his top dishes such as Rawon Lidah, Sayur Lodeh Salmon, Prawn Fried Sambal, Balinese Seasoned Fried Chicken, and Balinese Bumbu Duck. In this menu section, Chef Degan will immediately serve you. It's an interesting experience, right? You guys are immediately served by the celebrity chef.

Apart from Indonesian specialties, you can also find various Middle Eastern food such as Mandi Rice, Grilled Lamb, Shawarma, Shish Kebab, and Morrocan Seafood Tangine. If you count it, maybe the total menu variants here are around 80-90 types of menus if you go around the entire area.
