We consistently receive compliments like this one from Caroline (UK), August 2014’
“Your house staff are truly amazing and a credit to you.
The food we have had here has been the best in Bali so far.”
So, come stay with us and discover the flavours of East Bali.
We specialise in creating multi-course menus for special celebrations, intimate dinners and parties for up to 60 guests.
In East Bali the word we use is ‘Megibung’ – a selection of zesty dishes piled high on bamboo platters. In the remainder of Indonesia it is called after the Dutch ‘Rijstaffel’ or rice table http://russianbridesdating.net/.
The secret is always the ground spice mixture called Bali Bumbu … each housewife will have her own recipe, but ours comes direct from executive Chef Dewa Ardika, and is full of subtle additions you won’t necessarily find in village renditions.
The spices and sauces are patiently ground using a stone ‘ulukan’(mortar and pestle), and meals are traditionally served on platters of bamboo and banana leaves.
Of course, not all the food is spicy, and you can order it prepared to just thel evel of spiciness you enjoy .. in fact the pleasure is not in the ‘heat’ but the complexity of flavours – lemongrass, galangal, ginger, Bali lime, coriander, to name just a few!
