Rumah Rasa – The Feast Of Fire & Ice

In case you can’t hear it.. I’m literally voicing out the Game of Thrones theme song right now LOL
Anyways, quite in the realm – Rumah Rasa has something special for you.

Rumah Rasa is famous for its delicious Indonesian fare and is located Bay Hotel (which is across the road from Vivo City in case you haven’t noticed). For select dates at the tail end of December, they have assembled a special Feast of Fire & Ice fit for a king (and queen)! You don’t have to sit on the Iron Throne to enjoy this fabulous buffet spread πŸ˜€

Game of Thrones fans will appreciate that the theme of the buffet is set to one of the most popular TV shows of this generation. In fact, the whole hotel is themed to GoT for this season! They’ve scoured the Seven Kingdoms to bring us some unique dishes to add to their buffet spread.

As usual, we’re gonna break it down into sections. So.. brace yourselves..

Karedok

 

Emping

Roasted Pumpkin Beetroot and Feta Salad

 

Walder Frey’s Chicken Waldorf Salad

Quite a number of Starter dishes to choose from and we’ve chosen a few that caught our eye. There are a few other salads and soups to enjoy too by the way. I quite enjoyed the Roasted Pumpkin Beetroot and Feta Salad (which is something you don’t see at many buffet spreads now that I think about it).

And although there were no meat pies (geddit geddit) to be savoured, ol’ Walder did have a salad named after him. Walder Frey’s Chicken Waldorf Salad is Rumah Rasa’s take on a classic!

Dothraki Seafood On Ice

Honey Baked Turkey Ham

 

Smoked Duck Breast with Mandarin Sauce and Galantine of Balinese Chicken

 

Smoked Salmon

 

Tuna Tataki with Kaffir Lime and Kemanggi

 

Cured Char Siew Grouper

If you’re looking for some proteins to prep for the Long Winter, fret not!

The Dothraki Seafood On Ice has quite a spread of cold seafood on ice including Snow Crab claws, prawns, scallops, crayfish and mussels. Quite an impressive spread. I guess you could say that it’s… SAVAGE! (geddit geddit)

I’m a big fan of smoked meats and there were plenty to savour. Honey Baked Turkey Ham, Roasted Balinese Turkey Betutu, Smoked Salmon and Tuna Tataki adorn the carving station. But the most interesting dish was the Cured Char Siew Grouper! I’m a big fan of smoked meats (including fish) and found this very agreeable. The texture was quite interesting, almost jelly-like but an interesting flavour. Must try!

Nasi Tumping

 

Lamb Shish Kebab on Cashew Raisin Pulao Rice

Salmon Pepes

 

Baby Squid in Hot & Sweet Soy Dressing

Beef Balls in Fiery Sambal Bojak

Nasi Tumping is a traditional Indonesian favourite for special occasions and this is definitely a reason to celebrate. I enjoyed that more than the Pulao Rice which turned out to be a bit mushy for me but those Lamb Shish Kebab were tasty!

You don’t have to tell me twice to try the Baby Squid in Hot & Sweet Soy Dressing because I LOVE BABY SQUID! Crispy, spicy and sedap. I think I took extra servings of this one πŸ˜›

You should also try the Beef Balls in Fiery Sambal Bojak which was kinda like a Sambal Ijo now that I think about it.

Bebek Goreng Sambal Mangga

 

Baked Spicy Stuffed Cincaru Sambal Tomat Chili Padi

 

Ayam Hitam Pindang

Bay Bug Terasi Sambal

The Bebek Goreng is soooooo good! Enjoy it with that Sambal Mangga for maximum effect.

Now that I look back, I notice that there are plenty of spicy dishes which is synonymous with Indonesian cuisine. Bold flavours and plenty of heat but just enough to make it shiok and not burn your mouth off LOL

Well, the next section is definitely special – a LIVE BBQ that’s available for dinner!


Drogon’s Fire Oysters

DRACARYS!! Drogon’s Fire Oysters means you get to enjoy freshly-shucked oysters that are left to ‘burn’ on the grill and cook in their own tasty flavours. No seasoning (you can add some later!) means you enjoy fresh flavours and hot off the grill too!

We’ll tell you more about the special sauces later but Oysters are not the only thing being thrown on the grill!

Roasted Balinese Turkey Betutu Roasted Leg of Lamb Tikka with Minta Raita Marinated Turkey Breast

 

Grilled Sliced Chicken




Chili Padi Sauce

 

Habanero Sauce

 

Jalapeno Sauce

Plenty more to enjoy from the LIVE BBQ as you can see! A wide array of seafood and meats that are freshly grilled for maximum sedap-ness. They’ve even got a whole Roasted Balinese Turkey Betutu, Roasted Leg of Lamb Tikka with Minta Raita and Marinated Turkey Breast!

After all, Christmas Winter is coming right? πŸ˜›

And don’t forget to try the sauces too. Chili Padi, Habanero and Jalapeno sauces all lined up for those of you who are daring. They say that these sauces are what Drogon chugs in order to achieve his fiery breath πŸ˜€

The Red Wedding Cake


A meal is never complete without dessert and in keeping with the GoT theme, the Red Wedding Cake brings us a sweeter experience than poor Robb Stark and gang LOL (I’m so bad sia)

Red Velvet cake with cream and some berries compote for good measure. This dessert is definitely a.. killer πŸ˜›

And I know it sounds wicked of me but as I stabbed my fork into the cake as I was eating it, I whispered “The Lannisters send their regards” #TrueStory

Chilled Mango Pomelo Sago

 

Stollen





Pisang Bali

All these delectable desserts are part of Sansa & Arya’s Stolen Fruit & Dessert House and there are probably more than you can stuff into you so you’re definitely spoiled for choice LOL

Besides the assortment of cakes and tarts, the classic Stollen has ‘stolen’ my heart (geddit geddit) πŸ˜› I didn’t quite enjoy the Chilled Mango Pomelo Sago (a bit too diluted) but try the log cakes! Sedap!

The Pisang Bali was.. interesting to say the least. It’s a traditional Balinese dessert that’s basically banana coated in desiccated coconut. A super simple sweet ending to your feast!

Three Eyed Raven Cocktail

Bran would surely know if I neglected to mention the Three Eyed Raven Cocktail – a mix of Rose and Kiwi syrups in soda and three blueberries make up the three eyes of the raven. Oh! And some IQ jelly balls in there too (because I think the Three Eyed Raven knows a lot right? LOL)

So there you have it everyone! A Feast of Fire & Ice fit for all the warriors and maidens of the Seven Kingdoms!
Okay lah, so it’s not like 100% Game of Thrones theme but there are bits and pieces thrown in here and there which I think fans of the show will appreciate. Bottom line is that it’s generous buffet spread and a good choice if you’re looking for a year-end celebration.

Until we cross paths again, just remember – VALAR MAUMAKAN – all men must eat.
