Good food, effortlessly provided and gracefully served, is key to a relaxing and rewarding holiday experience, and Umah Daun’s guests can enjoy delicious home-cooked food ordered to suit their own schedule. The chef is experienced in preparing everything from snacks to five-course meals, and there is an extensive suggestion menu of Balinese, Indonesian and western dishes.
International dishes range from French onion soup to caesar salad, lamb chops and lobster to spaghetti bolognese and pizza. Guests are encouraged to try the chef’s Balinese specials such as Gado Gado (mixed vegetables with peanut sauce), Pepes Ikan (tuna fillet cooked in banana leaf with Balinese spices, served with rice), and Bebek Betutu (a spicy smoked duck dish). The chef is happy to tailor meals to special dietary requirements, and loves nothing more than whipping up Balinese feasts (think suckling pig) for dinner parties.
Groceries and beverages are charged at cost price. Guests are requested to provide grocery money in advance, and the staff will do the shopping and keep the receipts for reference. To make the most of the kitchen and give staff time to shop, it is a good idea to plan meals the evening before.
