Bali’s Home for Authentic Indonesian Cuisine at Lumbung Restaurant
The tranquil resort of Desa Visesa Ubud introduces Lumbung Restaurant, a stunning new venue that showcases a succulent culinary journey of Indonesian cuisine not found anywhere else in Bali.
With the opening of Lumbung Restaurant at Desa Visesa Ubud, one can find all the best flavours of the archipelago right where the action is. Lumbung, the Balinese name for a traditional elevated rice barn, is, in keeping with its name, a treasure trove of authentic Indonesian cooking always served with generous helpings of Balinese hospitality.
In a cosy, inviting and surrounded by tropical jungle greenery, the restaurant is a romantic grotto-like setting located under the bridge entrance to the resort that can seat 80 guests. The tasty and beautifully presented Indonesian dishes are served with the casual grace and charm typical of the finest Indonesian household.
To start the meal, one can taste on an inviting bowl of “Binte Biluhata” – a Gorontalo corn soup incorporating coconut and fresh tiger prawns, or the Indonesian classic of “Sayur Asem” – a tangy vegetable soup that derives its pleasing acidity from Melinjo leaves and tamarind.
The “lauk lauk”, or main selections, are some of the finest dishes found among Indonesia’s 17,000-plus islands. Choose from fresh and saltwater fish and crustaceans expertly seasoned and cooked to perfection. National favourite of coconut stewed beef “rendang” or “Lidah Sapi Sambal Hijau” ox-tongue braised in a green chili sambal or chicken or duck lovingly prepared in the traditional styles of Manado (North Sulawesi) or Bali are also popular to try among guests.
There are also signature dishes one can share, such as a massive Seafood Platter, “Bakaran Segara Giri” where lobster and Wagyu beef are “localized” in a most delectable way, and with “Bebek Betutu” – duck cooked in the distinctive betutu spice blend particular to the Island of Bali that hold generous portions.
Lumbung earns high marks for having the largest selection of “sambal” condiments representing a12 stops on the Scoville Scale Range of “spicy heat” ranging from relatively mild to sweat-inducing spoonsful for the “some like it hot” crowd.
Ending the meal on a sweet note, Lumbung has traditional sweets, puddings and refreshing traditional Indonesian ice drinks to top off the authentic experience.
Open daily for lunch and dinner from 11:00am to 11:00pm, Lumbung Restaurant is ready to set taste buds on an authentic journey through the islands of Indonesia. For reservations or more information, call at +62361 209 1788 or visit their website today.
