Garden to Plate, Ubud Style
Delicious, exhilarating, and dedicated Locavore Bali surprises with the freshness of abundant, exotic locally-sourced ingredients, putting new twists on European favourites. What is a Night Rooster? Glad you asked. The latest in intimate cocktails on Jalan Dewi Sita won’t disappoint when alchemist Raka’s imaginative concoctions hit your lips. Try Into The Wild a strawberry and berry preserve mixture of thyme, Tanqueray gin, Cointreau, Balinese Moscato and smouldering herbs. We’ll take two, please. Need it to go? No problem. They’ll have the most delicious banana-leaf-wrapped take away waiting. The restaurant also serves some of the best fresh baked breads on Bali. Their nose-to-tail philosophy creates conversation-starter faire including homemade blood sausage and lamb carpaccio. They take charcuterie very, very seriously here.
