Sundara at Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran
Sundara is a famous award-wining bar and restaurant in Bali. It is housed in Four Seasons Hotel at Jimbara by the beach.
Sundara consists of 2 parts: a bar and a restaurant. The bar offers authentic cocktails and drinks with both an open-air seating and in-door seating. On the otherside is the main restaurant, with an open kitchen and breathtaking view of the pool, beach and ocean. Luckily we arrive early enough to get the ocean-front table.
Arugula Salad pecorino, pear, almond, preserved lemon (IDR 110,000) was a very fresh and healthy starter.
Grilled Octopus Salad, polenta, chimichurri, toasted green olives, parsley (IDR 130,000)
The octopus salad is a signature appetizer at Sundara. The octopus was very fresh, chewy but tender, with a lovely grilled smell. The dressing was very refreshing and the entire dish was enjoyable.
Australian Oysters (IDR 50,000/piece) was quite small compare to those i had in Japan and USA. While on the quality side, both were very fresh.
Scallop Ceviche, jalapeño lime granite, shallots (IDR 160,000)
Another highlight on the menu. The dish itself looks very drooling, indeed, the scallop were tender and juicy.The entire dish was georgous and refreshing.
Tartare Crisps, hand-chopped tuna, edamame, peanut crackers (IDR 95,000) was another item we really enjoyed. The chopped tuna was spicy and flavorful, with the traditional Balinese scrispy peanut cracker, you won't go wrong with this one.
Grilled Giant King Prawns ,spicy chili sauce, celery leaf (IDR 330,000)
The prawns were quite large, by using the Baliniese way to grill, it was spicy and delicious.
Side: Roasted Baby Beet, fresh goat cheese, aged balsamic (IDR 45,OOO)
Spicy Tuna Roll ,chopped tuna, shallots, almonds (IDR 120,000)
I am not a big fan of maki rolls, especially Western style (as Japanese don't eat these fusion rolls). But this one was quite impressive. The texture, flavor and the balance between rice and fillings were really good.
