This August, Alila Anji excites taste buds with a Balinese Food Festival presented in collaboration with Bali Bistro, Shanghai’s only authentic Indonesian restaurant. Since opening in 2008, Bali Bistro has been passionate about introducing traditional delicacies and homegrown coffee from all over Indonesia to Shanghai, serving a variety of Indonesian food, snacks, drinks and desserts in a cozy ambience.
Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colourful cuisines in the world, richly spiced and intensely flavoured. Its dishes vary greatly from region to region, and reflect many different influences from the archipelago of over 17,000 islands, making it an exciting cuisine to explore and experience.
Alila Anji’s Balinese Food Festival will be officially launched with a by-invitation-only private event held on 27th July for selected VIPs and media, while in-house guests can sample the flavours from Indonesia’s ‘Island of the Gods’ at a special preview. The festival will then be held on selected days throughout August, when Bali Bistro’s Balinese chef will be in residence to cook up a Balinese storm.
No one is looking forward to the festival more than Alila Anji’s General Manager, Jack Widagdo, who himself is from Indonesia and considers Bali as home. “The Alila brand is very much an icon of Bali from Ubud and Manggis. Our guests do not need to fly to Bali – they can simply drive to Anji and enjoy authentic Balinese food right here with the amazing local hospitality of our Alila team, dining with a view of majestic Tianfu lake, and I hope they will love the experience as much as I do.”
The Balinese Food Festival menu will be served alfresco in a family/friends sharing style at a set price starting from CNY 498++. Seats are limited so guests are encouraged to book ahead of time.
“To add to the current dining options offered at the resort, which include international cuisine, home- comfort local Chinese cuisine, premium 3D Le Petit Chef dining, Godiva high tea-in-a-box, hotpot party and picnic-to-go, Alila Anji will also soon be launching new year-round signature dining experiences: Table by the lake, Dining at the top, Sunset BBQ + movie, In-villa BBQ, and to be unveiled in quarter four – farmhouse dining…something to look forward to at the constantly evolving Alila Anji,” adds Jack Widagdo.
