Seneng Kitchen Bali is a great go-to if you’re up for some discovery of local cuisine, served in arty settings and with a view in Ubud. Set within Komaneka at Bisma Resort, this Indonesian restaurant offers a great assortment of local Balinese and Indonesian delights, with the likes of Bali’s popular ‘nasi campur’ mixed rice and slow-roast ‘bebek betutu’ duck on the menu. Seating is divide into two levels, both well-furnished, airy and casual, with a wooden terrace overlooking the pool.
From this terrace, you can dine while taking in the cool breezes and greenery, including the rice paddies down the valley which are tended by Balinese farming couple, Pan Seneng and Men Seneng, whose names were inspirations for the restaurant’s own. Come evenings, Seneng Kitchen Bali takes on a more intimate and subdued ambiance, balanced off only by occasional traditional dance performances that form part of its special cultural evening highlights.
Although renditions of local Balinese and Indonesian dishes by Executive Chef Wayan Bagiana are the main draw here, you can also find an international menu comprising fresh salads, eggs Benedict, steaks and pastas, as well as pizzas from their wood-fired oven. For a must-try while in Bali, try Chef Bagiana’s take on the popular mixed rice plate, ‘nasi campur Komaneka’, or the typical Ubud treat of crispy fried duck, served with four different spicy sambal dips. Meals are around IDR 300,000 (USD 23) for two.
If you’re visiting in a late afternoon, you’re directed to its long wooden table where a colourful assortment of traditional Balinese cakes are served, alongside herbal drinks known as ‘loloh’ and ‘jamu’, which are made of natural ingredients. Many of Seneng Kitchen Bali’s signature cocktails are locally inspired, such as the spicy ‘rujak’ fruit salad rendered into a refreshingly potent beverage, making it great for sundowners at the terrace.
