But when asked the reason why the hotel chose Padang cuisine during Ramadan? Novianne directly answered that Padang, West Sumatra, has extraordinary culinary wealth. Even the presence of Padang’s culinary specialties has been throughout the archipelago and the world.

“Well, the uniqueness of Padang cuisine is quite strong in its spices which makes Padang specialties much loved and sought after by the wider community. The strong spices make Padang cuisine have a unique flavor. This is the reason why we chose Padang cuisine as a break-fasting dish,” she pointed out.

Novianne explained that paraded on the main buffet counter are dishes bursting with robust flavors like Dendeng Batokok, Dendeng Cabai Merah, Rendang, Tunjang Karee, Jack Fruit Karee, Potato Balls (Perkedel), Ayam Gulai, Satay Padang among many others.
