At Dapur Raja Bali, diners can savour the restaurant’s signature Balinese Rijsttafel – their take on the traditional Indonesian rijsttafel. Rijsttafel is Dutch for ‘rice table’, originating during colonial times, where a smorgasbord of different dishes were presented around rice to display the diversity of Indonesia’s cuisine. A way to experience ‘a little bit of everything’ in one sitting.
Dapur Raja’s Balinese Rijsttafel follows the same philosophy: serving an array of traditional Balinese delicacies all at once, featuring age-old recipes passed down through the generations.
The menu consists of Sop Kelor (moringa soup with grilled coconut), Satay Lilit & Ayam (minced tuna & chicken satay with Balinese spices), Nasi Kuning Bira (turmeric rice with vegetables), Urab (green bean & vegetable salad), Tempe & Tahu Manis (tofu & soya bean with sweet soya sauce), Ikan Pepes (steamed minced fish wrapped in banana leaf), Iga Babi (Balinese spiced BBQ pork ribs), Babi Guling (spiced Balinese suckling pig), Bebek Betutu (spiced Balinese smoked roasted duck), Bubur Injin (black rice pudding with coconut cream & jackfruit) and Dadar Gulung (pancakes with shredded coconut & palm sugar filling). The Rijfstaffel is priced at IDR 175.000++ per person.
Vegetarian diners are also very welcome. They can also taste these unique Balinese food offerings with the Vegetarian Rijsttafel option, where the different, rich variety of spices, curries and flavours can be savoured. Priced at IDR 150,000++ per person.
For those who only want to dig into a favourite of all Balinese food, the babi guling, can also order this dish individually for IDR 90.000++ per person.
That’s not all this Ubud restaurant has to offer. This royal meal is complemented by the extensive drinks menu available at Dapur Raja Bali, which includes cocktails, premium spirits and an impressive wine list, really elevating an experience of Balinese dining!
