Indonesian Rijsttafel Night
We welcome you to a Rijsttafel Night at frame, hosted by Komodo Kitchen’s Gina Onyx , a culinary entrepreneur from Jakarta, Indonesia.
“What is Rijsttafel you might ask? Good question.
Meaning “rice table”, rijsttafel is a nearly unending parade of small plates all filled with different spicy- sticky-sweet Indonesian cuisine. All accompanied by rice, of course. Rijsttafel comes from Indonesia, but the concept of rijsttafel was originally created by Dutch colonists living in Indonesia. Inspired by Nasi Padang, which is an Indonesian dish of rice surrounded by multiple meats and various vegetables in zesty sauces, the colonial Dutch created the massive feast we know today as rijsttafel as a way to sample as many different Indonesian dishes in one sitting as they possibly could.
This meal will have a standard, vegetarian and vegan option upon checkout. All dinners are prepared special for each guest.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
