HOH WOK CLUB - Indomania, August 16


My first HOH WOK CLUB gathering after a few year's hiatus was at Indomania for an intimate sit-down Rijsttafel, you can read about it here. It was such a huge success we are having a second one Monday, August 16.

Take a look at our Facebook pages for more photos from July 12 Feast, Jen's food shots were great, mine were a bit dark. Apologies, the photos from Aug.16 Feast are not worthy to post, I only had a little clip on light. Chef Ineke made more than 12-dishes, adding a delicious tender squid in curry coconut sauce, banana leaf corvina and cabbage wrapped meatballs.

Indomania hosted a fantastic dinner party at Miami River Wall and got videotaped by Fox Style File TV! I've also provided other reviews for Indomania and useful links, so do take a look.

Rijsttafel is a 'rice table' with lots of delectable dishes, full menu below. Chef Ineke created this special 12-dish Rijsttafel to give guests a little taste of Indonesia.

Growing up in Hong Kong, I remember my mom's Malaysian dishes which are very similar to those from Indonesia, so I am thrilled to find this charming restaurant in a low key part of Miami Beach.

After many visits to Miami, Chef Ineke and husband Pieter from Holland were finally able to realize their dream and open their own restaurant. They designed their restaurant as if it was their own dining room: small and cozy with intriguing Indonesian photographs on the walls and batik tablecloths.
Daughter, Isabel (an English teacher who lives in Holland
visits every year & helps out as well as enjoy some sun.

I think there's going to be a shrimp or fish dish and also noodles to replace one of the rice dishes, so be open to menu changes.

Please note: If you have food related allergies, strict dietary requirements, religious restrictions; are salt sensitive, vegetarian, pescatarian, or vegan; don't like your meat cooked medium rare, or are pregnant: these gatherings are probably not for you.
