Korean food has increased in popularity amongst Indonesians and is the preferred choice of dining option by many. Archipelago, Southeast Asia’s largest private and independent hotel management group, proudly hosted the first Chef Table with Korean Ambassador Park Tae-Sung at the residence of the South Korean Ambassador in Jakarta.
Corporate Executive Chef, Santoso Windoe, headed a team of five chefs from five different hotels under the Archipelago flagship. The team of chefs crafted six signature Korean dishes that are unique to their respective hotels. These dishes included Jjamppong from ASTON Anyer Beach Hotel, Kimchi Sujebi from ASTON Cilegon Boutique Hotel, Beef Galbi from Harper MT Haryono, Yangneom Chicken from favehotel Puri Indah, and Bulgogi from ASTON Priority Simatupang. A refreshing Strawberry Korean Latte was also presented from ASTON Cilegon to end this special dining experience. The aim was to create a learning opportunity in creating authentic Korean cuisine directly from the experts. The event was also attended by VIP guests from the embassy.
This initiative is the beginning of a partnership between Archipelago and the Embassy of Korea in Indonesia to develop a beautiful and lasting relationship. In the future, Archipelago will have other collaborations in F&B with KRAI and Chef Jun where Indonesian chefs can learn more about Korean Cuisine and bring the Korean wave into the hotels under Archipelago’s umbrella as well as International Food Festivals.
