Dine In the Continent’s Cuisine of Your Choice at COMO Uma Ubud
COMO Uma Ubud has you covered whether you are feeling like Western or Asian food at their restaurants, Uma Cucina and Kemiri.
Uma Cucina is an Italian-inspired restaurant and lounge bar at COMO Uma Ubud, Bali. The restaurant itself has an outdoor terrace and large communal dining table, making it informal and convivial. This reflects the homely kitchen spirit that its name originates from, with ‘cucina’ meaning ‘kitchen’ in Italian.
The menu at Uma Cucina is rustic but fresh, their dishes mostly composing of locally sourced produce but cooked with the flavours of Italy. Seasonal vegetables, seafood and slow-cooked meats are rendered in colourful, easygoing options, perfect for sharing with friends. House specialities include handmade pastas, woodfired pizzas and breads, as well as classic Italian gelatos and granitas.
The outdoor terrace and a large communal dining table encourages guests to choose to eat ‘family style’ with sharing ‘antipasto’ dishes, drop in for a drink and bar snack, or opt for a more intimate full dining experience. The menu is full of organic vegetables, fruits and local purveyors of quality gourmet products from raw cacao to honey. Techniques used in the ‘cucina’ include a brick-fired oven and charcoal grill, which gives a smokiness to all their dishes, from seafood to pizzas.
On the other hand, those who want to taste some local flavours in COMO Uma Ubud should turn to Kemiri. Kemiri means ‘candlenut’ in Bahasa Indonesia and is a restaurant with a beautiful open space with traditional alang-alang roofing, situated next to a waterfall-fed pond. The beauty of this space is even more apparent at night, when the nighttime candlelight contributes to a unique ambience.
Menus combine local produce with the techniques of classic Indonesian cuisine, with many innovative combinations. The menus—both à la carte and set—also feature their signature healthy COMO Shambhala Cuisine.
COMO Uma Ubud celebrates the monthly full moon every 30 days, which is an important event in the Hindu calendar dedicated to the Moon Goddess, Purnama. Kemiri marks the occasion with a traditional ceremony said to calm the mind as celebrants receive gentle energy from the goddess. They make ‘canang,’ or offerings, at a temple, followed by drinks, canapés and prayers, and finish it with a special full moon dinner.
