BEST GOURMET RESTAURANTS IN UBUD
One might think Ubud is all about green juices, vegan ice cream and spirulina energy balls, but ACTUALLY, it’s a proper foodie destination. Here are our top four gourmet dining spots in the central Ubud. And don’t even start us on those a-m-a-z-i-n-g restos at the 5* hotels and some gems hidden in the jungle – we are saving those for the next round!
Restaurant Locavore: Bali’s most famous kitchen creatives, playing with the produce from their own farms and swearing by – vegans, step back from the screens! – ‘nose to tail’ concept. Book weeks ahead! If no luck (those guys are way too popular and for a reason), try their little sister Locavore To Go, for the more casual – but still awesomely delish! – experience.
Oh, and by the way – check our review on another Locavore sibling, the cool bar Night Rooster here.
Go check it out: Locavore, Jl Dewi Sita
Hujan Locale: an expedition thought Indonesian archipelago, lead by famous Will – The Streetfood Chef – Meyrick. Barramundi fish cooked Sulawesi style, curry a la Aceh – the spice route on your plate! Check their lovely cocktails, too.
Go check it out: Hujan Locale, Jl Sri Wedara
Mozaic Restaurant: an oldie but a goldie. Refined French cooking + celebrity chef Chris Salans + best of local ingredients = an ultimate gourmand experience. Yes, they are not afraid to cook foie gras in the middle of ahimsa-obsessed Ubud, they are French for duck’s sake!?
