After washing up back at the hotel, book Sandat’s private shuttle bus to take you to Locavore, an exceptional restaurant on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list leading the eco-conscious food movement in Bali. Like its name suggests, Locavore sources 95 percent of its ingredients locally and prepares everything à la minute so diners can savor the fresh produce as if it was just plucked from the fields.
The five-course “Locavore” ($380) or seven-course “Herbivore” ($440) set tasting menu will lead you on a transformative journey, with course after course compounding natural fresh produce with confident, clean flavors. Local ingredients shine in the beef striploin dotted with mustard leaves and Piccalilli Indian pickles, and the green asparagus served with a 64-degree kampong egg and leaves from Locavore’s vegetable garden. The precision and clarity of concept is commendable, and an experience that will be a highlight of your trip to Bali.
