Satiate your appetite with our 15-dish Rijjstafel dinner!
For this special occasion, we will present a Rijsttafel similar to the way it was served at the Hotel Des Indes Batavia (now Jakarta) during Dutch occupation. Experience a theatrical procession of uniformed waiters direct to your table, each baring a splendid Indonesian dish for your dining pleasure. 

This elaborate dinner also features fine Asian lager provided by Tiger Beer, a short live preview from the show Amok as well as a presentation by chef Chris Reed and Amok Fest creator Karen Yates on food, the spice trade, colonial rule, and the flow of culture in Indonesia.
 As always, you can count on capping the evening off with our homemade Thousand Layer Spice Cake (Spekkoek) for dessert!

 
 Seats are limited to 18 and tickets sell fast so be sure to
make your reservations today!
*This is an underground dining experience. Details of the exact location will be released upon ticket purchase.*

Who is Karen Yates?
Chicago-based multidisciplinary artist Karen Yates has developed an expanded international practice that includes performance creation, stage direction, writing, acting, digital sound art, and social engagement. Her live ensemble performance pieces and digital sound work focus on U.S. and international issues—current and historical—especially as they relate to economic hierarchy and power.
What is Amok and AMOK FESTIVAL '15?
Focusing on Indonesia, the ensemble theater work Amok weaves together  text, movement, digital sound, and live Javanese gamelan music to investigate colonial history, the spice trade, and geoscience—including the 1883 explosion of the Krakatoa volcano and plate tectonics. Amok Festival '15, a weekend-long festival, Dec. 4-6, at Links Hall, elaborates on these ideas with programmed events covering food, drink, music, dance, culture and science. Festival events include: a Gamelan rave with Friends of the Gamelan and electronica artist Christian Priebe; ensemble theater piece Amok by Karen Yates, with performance contributions by writer-musician Ruth Margraff and composer Eric Reda; film screenings; dinner prepared by chef Chris Reed of The Rice Table —with more to be announced!
