The Embassy of Indonesia in Vietnam recently organized “The Taste of Indonesia” at the Indonesian restaurant Batavia to introduce its cuisine.

National dishes such as nasi goreng (fried rice with meat and vegetables), rendang (beef curry), satay (skewers), and soto (traditional soup), among others, were all available.

Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colorful in the world, with around 5,350 traditional recipes. It varies greatly by region and has many different influences.

Indonesia is the home of sate, one of the country’s most popular dishes and with many variants.

“Cuisine is something that could help strengthen the relationship between the two countries,” said Indonesian Ambassador H.E. Ibnu Hadi. “We hope that Indonesian specialties and the restaurant can add to the variety of Vietnamese cuisine.”

Established in December 2016, Batavia Restaurant & Café is the only Indonesian restaurant in Hanoi to meet the needs of customers who long for Indonesian cuisine and also those seeking Halal food in a clean and friendly atmosphere. Initially situated in the West Lake area of the capital, the restaurant recently moved to a new location 116 Ngoc Ha Street, Ba Dinh district. In its journey over the last two years, Batavia has been proud to serve customers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Singapore, and elsewhere. It’s been encouraging that, with the opening of Batavia, more Vietnamese people appreciate Indonesian cuisine.
