1 Meter Plate
A culinary journey across the archipelago through Indonesian signature dishes. Take the first step with a famous dish from West Sumatra: Beef Rendang, which has also been named as, “the most delicious food in the world” by distinguished international publications. Then after, travel down to West Java to indulge in the famous Grilled Chicken, with a nod to the Island’s favourite Spicy Prawn. All dishes are served with Yellow Rice, Sambals and Indonesian amuse bouche.
This signature dish was created for the VIPs in house, and it was developed and presented as a welcoming dinner dish upon the VIPs’ arrival. In this signature dish, we have gathered many various dishes originally from Indonesia, such as: beef rendang, prawn with chilli, grilled chicken and sautéed green beans. We also serve small canapés together with a bowl of hot oxtail soup. A variety of sambals are also ready to accompany the dishes – and not to forget, the fragrant yellow rice. It’s an absolutely stunning dish that is worth trying if you come to Kwee Zeen. Our 1-meter platter dish provides the perfect culinary journey through the Indonesian archipelago.
