The siz­zling streets of Seminyak are al­ways brim­ming with nov­el­ties ev­ery tide of a new sea­son. This year, Bali’s ever-evolv­ing is­land loy­al­ists have found a bliss­ful re­treat in the spe­cial en­claves of Seminyak Vil­lage’s eater­ies. A de­lec­ta­ble spread of var­ied din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences is tailored and cu­rated for the many life­styles of the Bali wan­derer. From the healthy yogi whose diet thrives on or­ganic-only pro­duce to the cos­mopoli­tan trav­eller on an es­capist mis­sion to in­dulge in sen­so­rial sun­sets, Bali’s new­est fash­ion­able des­ti­na­tion serves it all up.

For an ex­otic epi­curean ex­pe­ri­ence of Asian tastes, Tiger Palm’s menu hosts a range of dishes in­spired by Ny­onya and Thai food philoso­phies. Deca­dent dishes of cur­ries, soft rice noo­dles, crispy bites, and fresh fishes are the sim­ple yet so­phis­ti­cated creations of Chef Will Meyrick. In­spired by his own aro­matic trav­els, the founder of the flour­ish­ing restau­rant cap­tures Malaysia’s culi­nary her­itage and brings it to Bali in Tiger Palm’s ma­jes­tic menu. Chef Meyrick has led a colour­ful ca­reer across con­ti­nents, earn­ing him the es­teemed rep­u­ta­tion of build­ing the re­gion’s most cov­eted culi­nary des­ti­na­tions. Dishes of cul­ture and her­itage find home with easy per­fec­tion in all of his restau­rants, from Mama San in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur to Hu­jan Lo­cale in Ubud, Bali.

For a lan­guid af­ter­noon, sip on an ex­cep­tional espresso mar­tini, shaken by bar­tenders amid an am­bi­ence ac­cented with aes­thet­ics rem­i­nis­cent of trop­i­cal mid-cen­tury mod­ernism. Travel back in time to Old Malaya, and em­brace con­tem­po­rary ren­di­tions while cel­e­brat­ing well-loved tra­di­tions. Tel: +62 81236 343386. www.tiger­palm­
