The Cool Folk of Ubud

Exquisite Taste - - Grapevine -

For a long time, the splash­ing fun of Bali was re­served to beach­front venues, but Folk Pool & Gar­dens is here to bring the cool pool scene to Ubud. Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the eclec­tic peo­ple and vi­brant life­style of Ubud, Folk pro­vides an oa­sis of fun, equipped with a swim­ming pool amidst a lush gar­den set­ting. With a whim­si­cal design that in­cor­po­rates re­pur­posed rus­tic tin roofs and tra­di­tional joglo roof and walls, the space is a unique des­ti­na­tion that serves as a fresh breath for Ubud.

Even more im­por­tantly, Folk Pool & Gar­dens serves a great va­ri­ety of all-day din­ing menus. Start off healthy with the smoothie bowl se­lec­tion; choose from the dragon fruit and pineap­ple bowl, the av­o­cado, kale and ba­nana bowl or the straw­berry yo­gurt. The sal­ads of­fer many scrump­tious options from pump­kin quinoa, Viet­namese chicken, to as­para­gus and feta salad and mahi mahi quinoa. Go hard with the pizza and sand­wich se­lec­tions, or go all the way with tuna teriyaki skew­ers or chicken yak­i­tori from the grill sec­tion.

The desserts are also note­wor­thy, with blueberry frangi­pane tarts, straw­berry tarts, chur­ros and lapis cake on the menu. Re­mem­ber, Folk is a per­fect place to prove that shar­ing means car­ing, as it of­fers a long list of dishes to share in­clud­ing pork ribs, Ba­li­nese mezze plat­ter and spinach lasagne.

Last but not least, Folk's drink menu is off the charts. From the vir­gin cock­tails, to the wine and spirit lists – even arak-based cock­tails are on of­fer. So this sum­mer, Folk is the place to be to kick back and re­lax over a glass of tip­ple by the pool.
