Serves six halal menus inspired by Korean dishes

IO – Nutritionists suggest the consumption of healthy nutrition-balanced dishes, consisted of ¼ portion of carbohydrates, ¼ of protein, ½ portion of vegetables and fruits which are rich in vitamins and minerals to maintain health. During the COVID-19 pandemic, besides adhering to the health protocol: wearing a mask, washing hands with soap, and maintaining a safe distance, consuming vitamins and minerals is also useful for increasing body immunity.

One of the restaurants that provide a healthy menu made from vegetables and fruits is SaladStop! Especially, they provide organic vegetables and fruits that are cultivated hydroponically, using water efficiently without using soil media with an emphasis on meeting the nutritional needs of plants. Hydroponic vegetables and fruits are known for the quality and fresh ingredients.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, when many were crazy about Korean drama, SaladStop! don’t want to miss the opportunity. This restaurant provides a Korean menu to answer the desire of potential customers to taste authentic Ginseng Country cuisine they usually see on the screen.

“Korean wave is the reason we introduce Korean seasonal menus. Korean culinary is synonymous with healthy food because of its raw materials and processes. Besides pampering consumers, it is also an effort to encourage people to eat healthy foods,” said Sekar Ajeng, Marketing Manager of SaladStop! Indonesia, in the SCBD area, South Jakarta.

Three Korean seasonal food menus, namely Chikin Me Up Salad (organic vegetable salad, sweet potato noodles, plus Gochujang Chicken which has a savory, sour, spicy flavor with Korean Chili Vinaigrette), Bibim-Go (Bibimbap interpretation with Gochujang Chicken and Healthy Kimchi variants), and Seoul Park, which is a salad combined with Korean Bulgogi Beef topping. Meanwhile, three fruit milk creations are Strawberry Milk Smoothie, Banana Milk Smoothie, and Mango Milk Smoothie.

In addition to quality ingredients, the largest healthy culinary lifestyle in Asia has officially announced the acceptance of the Halal Certification (SJH) from the Indonesian Ulema Council (LPPOM MUI), Thursday (29/4/2021). SJH includes all restaurant operational chains, from supply chain functions, equipment, production processes, to product presentation. It guarantees transparency to consumers in supporting the healthy eating movement that is halal.

In Ramadan, Korean menus become recommendations for Iftar; they also provide delivery service that ensures food safely reaches consumers. (Esti)
