Karma Beach Bali welcomes an impressive new menu – “Creative cocktails and bites to eat to enjoy beachside”
There’s now even more reason to visit the illustrious Karma Beach Bali, with the arrival of a new food and drinks menu at the beachside venue. The resident of resort Karma Kandara, in picturesque Uluwatu, has welcomed a slew of creative new drinks and dishes for guests to enjoy. Heavily inspired by the Mediterranean, the new dishes are said to be bold in flavour, but light enough to suit a warm day by the waves.
Picture the likes of entrees like Crispy Ubud Dirty Duck Salad; lychee, kemangi, red chillies, toasted coconut, and palm sugar dressing, and Tuna Tartare; adorned with compressed watermelon, torched ginger flower, red chilli paste, and tapioca coral crackers.
Onto mains of Salt-baked Whole Fish; red snapper with sauteed spinach, roasted saffron potatoes, chimichurri and lemon.
Indonesian flavours also feature on a handful of dishes – like the Lobster Mie Goreng featuring ½ bamboo lobster, mud crab, prawn, calamari, acar, prawn krupuk, or the Balinese Octopus and Seafood Curry, with turmeric spiced coconut milk, mahi mahi, potatoes, and kaffir lime.
The new drinks menu has been designed by Karma Beach Bali to pair well with the fare available.
A cocktail of the day will form the heart of the drinks offering, sitting alongside longtime Karma favourites Bedugul Colada (spiced rum, pineapple-infused rum, homemade pandan lemongrass syrup, pineapple juice) and the Kintamani Mojito (white rum, mint, tangerine juice, jeruk kintamani, ginger ale).
The wine list has also expanded, with more wine and beer options from around the globe. And there’s now even the chance to upgrade a classic cocktail with a premium spirit
