See Red, Eat Red, Be Red at SATOO Red Night!

December 3, 2014 Ellyna Tjohnardi
As if an average dinner at one of Jakarta's best buffet restaurants is not indulgent enough, SATOO cracks the boundary (yet again!) of indulgence with its special SATOO Red Night that kicked off on 20th November 2014.

Every Thursday evenings, SATOO will (over) indulge our senses with the fiery and passionate colour of red. For that special evening of the week, the entire restaurant will be decorated in red ornaments, even the staffs' normally orange uniform will be clad in red every Thursday. The theatrics and antics do not end there, around 7PM, at the signal of a 'gong' the staffs and the chefs will parade around the restaurant, parading the red desserts that are on display that evening.

The highlight of the Red Night, will be of course the food. Everything from Appetizers, to Dessert will be dominated with red food items. Fresh seafood fans you'll be ecstatic to see the seafood selection here: tiger prawn, fresh pacific oysters, mussel, swimmer crab, yabbies, white clams. I feel slightly disadvantaged here, because unfortunately I'm not a fan of fresh seafood =P

The appetizers are complimented with an array of special red sauces for guests to choose, from strawberry and mango vinaigrette, raspberry vinaigrette, thousand island dressing and blood orange emulsion to sun dried tomato pesto.

My ritual when eating at a buffet restaurant, is  I would scour the entire ground where the 12 open kitchen stations are (this small tummy can't contain too much food at one go, so yeah...I gotta be selective haha). Some of my personal favourites are the Indian stations (SATOO is, after all, famous for its Indian food), the steak, yorkshire pudding and sauteed tomato quinoa from the Western section.
