In support of an official announcement from the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism naming five national dishes, Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach has launched a special promotion featuring its take on the iconic dishes.

"The five dishes announced by the Minister of Tourism, Arief Yahya, have been a part of our menu," explained Jean-Charles Le Coz, general manager of Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach, "and we take this opportunity to showcase them more prominently at our restaurants, Grand Benoa Resto and Bali Luna."

The five dishes, Beef Rendang, Gado-Gado, Nasi Goreng, Soto Lamongan, and Sate, will be alternately showcased during breakfast at the Grand Benoa Resto, along with Indonesian traditional “jamu” herbal drink.

During the special promotion, guests can enjoy any one of these dishes at Bali Luna at a special price of only Rp. 99,000 net for lunch or dinner. "We try to keep them as authentic as we can, with the use of spices, herbs, and cooking method," said Dewa Eka Putra, the Bali-born Executive Chef at the Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach. In deference to the health-minded, Chef Dewa has added caloric information. "The restaurant will soon offer a selection of healthier take on Asian and Western-inspired favorites," said Chef Dewa, "Our goal is to let our guests know that healthy food can be delicious as well, indulge without guilt. We also want, whenever we can, to use local selected ingredients, it makes the food authentic, enhances the taste and reduce carbon footprint; it’s good for all.”
