For all we know, there are three things guaranteed in life: Death, taxes, and food.
And for us foodies, there are three things guaranteed when dining in Al Nafoura: Good food, good atmosphere & good value for money. All in all, an unforgettable dining experience, especially when you happen to be stuck in Jakarta during the fasting month of Ramadan.
I know some people who actually look forward to this time of year, purely because there's Ramadan buffet in Al Nafoura. If you’re not the kind who can stand over 12-hours of starvation, just make sure you come with an empty stomach.
For the Ramadan buffet special, I would recommend:
1. Start with the soup – It's different every night, but the lamb & vermicelli is my favourite.
2. Proceed with the entrée – A comprehensive array of Lebanese cold mezze hummus, labneh, tablouleh, babaganuc, and the mouthwater list goes on…
3. Main course – Endless choices of meat, fish and seafood cooked in spices, kebabs, tagines, and haruf ouzi rice with whole lamb.
4. Dessert –Always, leave room for dessert. It’s “STRESSED” spelled backwards. Baklawa, Atayef, Sambousic with dates…and not to be missed, the delightful Egyptian bread and butter pudding, Om Ali.
Great job for turning the useless outdoor area into a night-in-Arabia-al-fresco lounge, a perfect setting for some serious Shisha getaway.
And if you're lucky, ladies… you'll be greeted by the charmer Lebanese Chef Hussein.
