Sustainably preserving Indonesia’s biodiversity and culture through a unique culinary journey, drawing inspiration from the glorious era of the Majapahit Kingdom.
In partnership with Javara Indonesia, The Apurva Kempinski Bali is committed to preserving and promoting Indonesia’s rich cultural and culinary heritage once savoured during the Majapahit era to today's discerning travellers and youth. ‘Majapahit Imperial Dining’ is beyond merely a culinary celebration, it is an odyssey that brings the Majapahit legacy to life. The artisans from our sustainable decoration partner have crafted a magnificent decoration that further levitates the feel of the Majapahit era while showcasing Indonesia's rich herbs, spices and ingredients as part of the decoration. Finally, a dramatical dance performance has been specially curated, telling the story of Tribhuwana Tunggadewi, the Queen of Majapahit and the mother of King Hayam Wuruk.
The specially curated menu for ‘Majapahit Imperial Dining’ features 'Urap Hayuyu' that symbolises harmony with unconventional grains like Jewawut (Foxtail Millet or Setaria Italica), 'Rawon Lembu' enriched with Kluwek (Pangium) for its dark broth, 'Botok Iwak' honouring every part of a coconut, 'Manuk Urang Manggar' infused with a citrusy and spicy kick from Andaliman Pepper, and 'Jadah Tape' as a tribute to the Betawi’s tradition of street snack Tape Uli. At the heart of the set menu is the remarkable Melik Parijatha Rice – a unique variety grown on the slopes of Mount Ijen in Banyuwangi, East Java, and known to have been exclusively served to the kings of Majapahit. Each dish is prepared using time-honoured techniques of grilling, roasting, steaming, and frying, which embody the evolution of taste and culinary craftsmanship while telling a story of ancient flavours.
Experience this unique culinary journey to the glorious past while rediscovering indigenous ingredients across the archipelago and rich cultural heritage, all presented on one spectacular stage. Explore more Majapahit Imperial Dining here.
