Graze through the day from 10am to 10pm on Indonesian comfort food, high tech ice-cream or artisanal coffee. Seminyak Village is one of the few spots in Bali that offers a delectable range of cuisines in one beautifully air-conditioned space. With natural sunlight that streams through the atrium, you feel like you’re outdoors, sans heat and humidity. It’s a little piece of paradise, on this Island of the Gods.
Breakfast at Café Darling
All the natural goodness and super-food you need to get your day started. Founder of Café Darling Lita Gunardi is determined to serve the healthiest treats, from tasty fresh juices and smoothies, and acai bowls. Her approach? 95% of her ingredients are sourced seasonally and locally so they are organic and fresh.
Tip: Add a shot of moringa powder to your favourite pick-me-up. The moringa plant is native to Asia and commonly found in Indonesia. With anti-oxidant properties it helps stabilize and calm the skin.
Coffee break at Marketplace
Simply grab a take-away artisanal coffee from Wahrung and head here to chill out and chat with a fellow traveller as you browse through a selection of quirky-cool goods from home-grown Bali-based designers.
Lunch at The Duck King
Indonesia’s most famous Chinese restaurant is a hot favourite at Seminyak Village. As the name suggests, they are the king of Chinese duck cuisine so don’t miss out on their signature Peking and barbecued styles. With all the trimmings of a classic Chinese restaurant, The Duck King’s expansive space makes it a great place for larger dining groups. Expect heart-warming Chinese comfort food staples and healthy portions.
Tip: For a light bite, The Duck King has a Dim Sum selection that is recognisable and straightforward. Their Xiao Long Bao is a mouthful of liquid heaven.
Ice-cream at Nitrogenie
Nitrogenie is equal parts innovation and fun. It has both the science of creating ice-cream using liquid nitrogen to flash freeze the ingredients, and the whimsical charm of a genie (evident from its logo) and his many colourful flavours and ingredients. As every ice-cream is handmade to order, freshness is guaranteed.
Tip: If there is only room for one flavour, it has to be the Salted Caramel Popcorn.
Tea-time at Wahrung
Wahrung’s advantageous atrium seating catches Bali’s gorgeous sunrays that permeate the mall’s glass dome. This is best enjoyed with delicious chocolate desserts, French pastries, a hot cuppa or Wahrung’s famous boutique coffee.
Tip: Do not miss out on the Smoked Salmon Tapas … Wahrung does bite-sized delights to perfection.
Dinner at Tiger Palm
Creator of Tiger Palm is chef Will Meyrick, a well-known name in Bali for his street chef-style and penchant for cool design environments. Tiger Palm is an all-day dining concept that is influenced by Peranakan flavours and spices. A watering hole in its own right, the bar here serves inspired cocktails that might make a world-class mixologist put it on their bucket list.
Tip: For a great bar snack to go with those cocktails, try the Jalan Alor Smoked Chicken Wings.
Supper at Mrs. Lee
Delightful Indonesian food made from restaurateur Mrs. Lee’s family recipes. This is a go-to restaurant for its heartiness and quality. Bright and cheerful it makes for the perfect way to end a great day shopping with nibbles and drinks.
Tip: Word is that the deep-fried duck here will make you check your diet at the door… permanently.
