As we close in to the month of Ramadan, there will be countless of ‘buka puasa’ you’ll go to. A slight change of style from your typical buffet style dining style, here’s a something to try for you: JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta offers a unique breakfasting package with a traditional way of liwetan, a very communal way of eating where multiple choices of food items or ‘lauk’ are enjoyed together with friends on banana leaf.

Traditionally, the whole table, or even the floor where diners gather around to eat, would be covered with banana leaves, from which everyone will dig in straight with their hands, with piles of rice and the vegetables and the protein piled on top, unlike the communal eating shared in the middle east.
