Terracotta, Ubud (Bali)

Late last month Alex and I hopped on over to Bali to celebrate the end of our freedom as we know it (this week we both started work and I started grad school). We spent a week enjoying beautiful views, time relaxing and of course, a LOT of delicious food. On one of our three nights in Ubud we ventured out to Terracotta, located at the beautiful Kenanga Resort. The outdoor restaurant overlooks sprawling rice paddies and the resort pool, creating a lovely serene setting complemented by the noninvasive service. The complimentary tuna crostinis offered were delicious and devoured in two bites, a perfect start to the meal. The lumpia had an ample amount of stuffing, without being too oily or heavy, however it was the mains that really made our evening. Alex’s Balinese curry was flavorsome yet delicately spiced, and my fish in banana leaves was light and went down easily- we learnt to make this the following day in our cooking class, which was awesome! The desserts were good, nothing special- I’d recommend on filling up on the mains! Terracotta is a wonderful spot for a romantic meal in Ubud, and sets itself apart with impeccable service and traditional Balinese dishes presented beautifully. If you find yourself there, stick with the traditional menu items, and don’t pass up the opportunity to have a few of their delicious, tropical-inspired cocktails as well!
