The open house day feels even more special due to the traditional Lebaran dishes on the table, such as the Lontong sayur, Opor ayam, Sambal goreng ati, Nasi goreng, Rendang, Satay, Vegetable curry and Tekwan ikan, among others.

Indonesian citizens abroad yearn for the atmosphere of the typical Indonesian Lebaran, and that is why, when this time comes and the Ambassador's house opens to celebrate, everyone is willing to be pampered with traditional desserts and cakes, which are rarely found in other countries, such as Nastar, Blancanieves, Kastengel, Onde-Onde and Kueku.
