Exceptional Value at Perankan Lunch Available Every Sunday at Rumah Luwih Hotel on the IB Mantra Highway in Bali
A rare opportunity to enjoy genuine Peranakan or Nyonya Cuisine is available every Sunday form 11:30 am until 3:30 pm at the Andrawina Restaurant at Rumah Luwih Bali on Jalan Ida Bagus Mantra Km. 19.8, across from the Bali Safari.
Peranakan Cuisine is the much-revered form of Malacca Straits' cookery that combines Chinese, Malay and Indian culinary traditions.
Often referred to as “Nonya” cooking – in honor of the Chinese women who pioneered food that combines succulent spiciness, herbal curries, sweet, sour, salty, and aromatic cooking. Part of a large diasporic exodus from China, the Nonya tradition was first established in present day Malaysia where the “aunties” or “Nyonya” who held reign in the kitchen incorporated the new tastes, spice and styles of food preparations onto their familial dinner tables.
While regional variations in Peranakan cooking exits, the recipes are impacted by the use of coconut milk, ginger, galangal, laksa leaf, Pandan leaves, belachan, tamarind juice, lemon grass, torch ginger kaffir lime leaf, chilies, shallots and garlic. Expect to find as standbys rendang – flavorful beef simmered for hours in chilies and coconut milk; laksa – a spicy noodle soup, otak-otak fish cooked in banana leave, chicken curries, salted fish dishes and a range of delicious sambals as well as local cakes and sweet desserts.
The menu of Peranakan Food Sunday brunch served at Rumah Luwih changes every week.
No less impressive than the menu is the venue for the lunch – the Rumah Luwih Hotel that has been built in a grand heritage style reminiscent of the colonial era when hotels such as the Hotel Des Indies (Batavia), Majaphahit (Surabaya), Raffles and Goodward Park (Singapore), E & O (Penang), and The Oriental (Bangkok).
Breathtakingly beautiful and meticulous in attention to detail, the Peranakan lunch at Rumah Luwih harks back to a more refined era when the Peranakan Lunch at the Tiffin Room of the Raffles Hotel was, in the day, a de rigueur weekend ritual.
And, if the sumptuous cuisine does not take you back to another era, then prices most certainly will. For a limited time, the Peranakan Buffet Lunch in the elegant colonial-style Andrawina Restaurant is available for a limited time only a “buy one get one free” basis for Rp. 299,000 for adults and Rp. 149,000 plus tax and service for children aged 12 and under.
This is an unbeatable, deal both in terms of the food on offer and the pricing.
