Royal Tugudom – grand ceremonial dining of Majapahit kingdom
The Royal TUGUDOM dining experience tells the story of the grand dining ceremonies of the royal expeditions of King Hayam Wuruk of the Majapahit Kingdom through vast areas including Bali. The Majapahit royal entourage traveled on foot, with buffalo-drawn carts, horses and elephants, from the eastern region of Java to Bali, stopping at temples, markets, villages, and ‘tugus’, the monuments of the God of Çiwa. In Tugu’s Royal Tugudom dining, a parade of staff appears in the costumes of the villagers, soldiers and dancers who would attend to the King and his entourage and they serve you just as they might a Royal guest, loving every moment of the charade that takes all participants back to a glorious time of feasting and merriment.
Tugu’s traditional Grand Rijsttafel, or Rice Table, portrays the most elaborate and lavish social feast that used to be celebrated by the Dutch plantation lords when they hosted their honorable guests during the colonial years. Created by the inland Dutch to explore the best of what Indonesian food has to offer, the grand meal used to be served at the most high-end dinner for the Dutch officials at that time. The grandiose atmosphere is built upon the sumptuous menu on the table: mounts of yellow rice surrounded by sampling of different Indonesian dishes varying in spices, color and flavors. It is a true journey for the taste buds. Traditionally each of the twelve dishes dish, including Perkedel Udang Windu (Stuffed Prawn with Potato Fritter), Rendang Pariaman (Stew Beef in Coconut Milk, Kare Ayam (Javanese Chicken Curry), and Soto Ayam Madura (Madurese Turmeric Chicken Soup) that contributes to the Grand Rijsttafel is served by one waiter, adding up to an impressive total of twelve waiters who line up and serve their part extravagantly in front of each guest.
