From the same group that established Sarong and Mama San, Hujan Locale is one of the latest additions to the gastronomic venues in Ubud that offers various selections of South East Asian fare including some of the finest dishes inspired by the tasteful spices found in Indonesian culinary delights.
Will Meyrick is a man of culinary passion. His efforts have earned him a reputation of one of the few famous names in Bali’s culinary milieu and still his reputation moves on. This Scottish lad who has made Indonesian his home has just recently decided to bring his lifetime experience of tasting South East Asian food into the casual fine-dining setting of Hujan Locale.
Situated in Ubud, Hujan Locale features high-quality slow cooked food from local products. The interior of this two-level restaurant is composed by classic and rural urban styles, creating a pleasant decor that guarantees an indulging dining experience. After making myself comfortable in one of the sofas, I decided to start with several appetizers, such as the unique DIY five spice grilled beef menu, which allows guests to make their own dish from a prepared set of ingredients, including a rice paper wrapper, tasty beef meat, peanut sauce and vegetables, with a tasty dip sauce to wrap the taste.
For an exotic taste, I tried Hujan betel leaves, prawns and black pudding—a creative take of Balinese ‘lawar’ made from vegetables, spice and grilled pork blood. The taste is well-balanced and delicious. Then I moved to the main menu; a portion of stir-fry prawn to fulfill my craving for fine seafood. I followed this with a plate of Sumatran BBQ pork ribs that blended convincingly with Sumatran sauce and spices.
