An American tradition paired with local ice-cold craft beer, the first Secret Dinner Society in Jakarta was a holiday hit.
After years of keeping our readers in-the-know with the coolest things to eat, see and do in the capital, we felt it was our duty to actually throw one of our own little shindigs, and thus our pop-up dining series Secret Dinner Society was born. The first Secret Dinner Society in Jakarta took place at Attarine, where we joined forces with Potato Head Group and Stark Craft Beer to throw a holiday-appropriate dinner party. There was hot turkey, there was cold craft beer, there was warm company, and it was awesome.
Tickets to 70 seats (and then some!) sold out in just one week! To fit the holiday, a four course medley of Thanksgiving-inspired dishes – plus a secret signature Attarine dessert – was presented, each dish matched to a different flavoured Stark Craft Beer. This was not your grandmother’s traditional turkey and pumpkin pie dinner – Chef Jacob Burrell and Chef Aditya Muskita put their culinary talents to give the holiday feast the special Attarine treatment.
The night started off with hearty roasted pumpkin soup with hints of argan, paired with the fragrant and tropical Mango Ale. This appetite whetting starter was followed by not one, but two main courses: mushroom-stuffed turkey breast with roasted kluwak and wood-fired Brussel sprouts, and turkey leg served with caramelized sweet potato, paired with the full-bodied Stark Dark Wheat. For dessert, a caramelized peanut butter and pear pie for dessert was paired with Stark Dark Wheat. Yum! As if diners were not stuffed yet already, a second dessert, Attarine’s famous Old Fashioned Dough Fritters, came out to share.
And just when our diners thought the party was over, they got to walk home with two more bottles of Stark Craft Beer’s stunning bottles: their award-winning Lychee Ale and the Pilsner 1945, to enjoy at the comforts of their home.
A huge thank you Potato Head Group and Stark Craft Beer for making the first Secret Dinner Society in Jakarta possible!
