Starfish Bloo

Exquisite Taste - - Sumptuous Seafood: Bali - (wbaliseminyak.com)

AT W BALI – SEMINYAK

Beach­front din­ing doesn’t come any more stylish than at Starfish Bloo. As the flag­ship restau­rant of the ever-trend­ing W Bali – Seminyak, Starfish Bloo serves re­fresh­ing pan-Asian and Western del­i­ca­cies, with each dish high­light­ing an in­no­va­tive twist.

While the sump­tu­ous Cham­pagne Sun­day brunch is prob­a­bly what first comes to food­ies’ minds upon the men­tion of Starfish Bloo - it is af­ter all one of the most pop­u­lar and beloved brunches in

Bali - its Fri­day evening seafood bar­beque also de­serves a nod of recog­ni­tion, with an ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of the fresh­est seafood in­clud­ing Irian Jaya king crabs, lob­sters, clams and more.

Chef de Cui­sine Ash­ley Gar­vey – simply go­ing by Ash – is at the helm, and he shares his two cents on what makes Starfish Bloo an out­stand­ing seafood din­ing des­ti­na­tion, “I would say our venue has so much to of­fer, from lux­ury beach­front views to daily sourced seafood from the best sup­pli­ers on the is­land. We have a pas­sion­ate culi­nary team that drives ex­cit­ing dishes and de­liv­ers ex­cep­tion­ally friendly ser­vice. All this cre­ates a unique ex­pe­ri­ence that keeps peo­ple com­ing back over seven years. The restau­rant de­liv­ers a world-class ex­pe­ri­ence epi­cally for those who are mad about seafood, it’s a plea­sure to be at the helm of this culi­nary in­sti­tu­tion.”

Ash rec­om­mends Starfish Bloo’s seafood plat­ter for the genre’s en­thu­si­asts, where a boun­ti­ful ar­ray of fresh shell­fish and sashimi slices is ready to be savoured. The seafood plat­ter comes in two styles, chilled or In­done­sian-style grilled – the choice is yours. The restau­rant’s Kilpatrick-style oys­ters, on the other hand, in­cor­po­rate a lo­cal touch by com­bin­ing Ba­li­nese sam­bal with a smoked bacon and tabasco top­ping. Last but not least, no one should miss the crowd-pleaser that is tem­pura lob­ster with yuzu – Ja­panese cit­rus – es­puma.
