For the honorable guests, Rosso served Lawar Bali (Balinese Green Bean Salad with Chicken, Zucchini Ribbon, Roasted Tomato, Parmesan Tuile, and Crispy Coconut), paired with Sababay Ascaro dry bubble white 2018 and Muscat Saint Vallier as the appetiser. Then, Rosso pleased the guests’ palate with Keung Udeng—which is an Aceh style Spicy and Sour Seafood Soups with fresh succulent Shrimp meat and creamy Basil pesto —and Soft Shell Crab Gulai Tagliolini- homemade Squid Ink Tagliolini, Gulai Foam and deep-fried Soft Shell Crab – this time with Sababay Reserve White, 2017, Chardonnay.

Finally, after the delightful plates, the chefs concluded the festivity with Cassava Cassata (an Italian cassata made from Indonesian cassava), with Sababay Lambrusco sweet bubbly red, 2018.
