24 Hours in… Ubud.
Slide Nr 11
6:30pm, Dine Local – At Locavore, one of Ubud’s most in-demand restaurants, local ingredients are given a modernist, European-style twist in tasting menus of six or nine courses – vegetarian or not – exquisitely presented with plates and silverware made by local craftspeople. Expect dishes like grilled octopus in coconut curry, banana blossoms in white curry with spice-roasted coconut and crispy leeks, and ‘Into the Sawah’, featuring snails, duck egg, fern tips and wildflowers that grow in the rice fields (sawah). Reservations are required for dinner or lunch (the latter is much easier). If Locavore is full, don’t despair: its siblings Nusantara (regional Indonesian, dinner-only), Locavore to Go (sandwiches and burgers) and Night Rooster, a cocktail and wine bar, are all on the same street, Jalan Dewi Sita.
