When compared to gado-gado (mixed blanched vegetables with peanut sauce), Rujak juhi may be a less popular dish among Jakartans. Therefore, The Dharmawangsa Jakarta aims to increase its popularity by including rujak juhi as one of the hotel's select appetizers during Ramadhan.

The tantalizing dish is recommended for iftar (breaking-of-the-fast meal) as the combination of crunchy vegetables covered in rujak pengantin' sauce, topped with sweet and savory juhi (salted cuttlefish) will awaken the taste buds before moving on to the next dishes. (asw)


  • 50 gr iceberg lettuce
