Bumbu Bali information
Long-time resident and cookbook author Heinz von Holzen, his wife Puji and a well-trained and enthusiastic staff serve exquisitely flavoured dishes at this superb restaurant. Many diners opt for one of several lavish set menus.
The rijstaffel (rice table) shows the range of cooking in the kitchen, from satays served on their own little coconut husk grill to the tender be celeng base manis (pork in sweet soy sauce), with a dozen more courses in between.
Another highlight is the amazingly tasty and different jaja batun bedil (sticky dumpling rice in palm sugar). Tables are set under the stars and in small pavilions. The sound of frogs can be heard from the fish ponds. There’s complimentary transport in the area. Book.
There's a second location a short ways north; we prefer this, the original location. Note that some rijstaffel s have a two-person minimum.
