Selamat Pagi

This Balinese spot comes from the owners of Van Leeuwen. The small casual space is lined with palm leaf wallpaper, natural wood & paper lantern lights. The menu here is vegetable-heavy and packed with unexpected and exciting flavors that are unlike anywhere you typically eat (unless you go to Bali often, which I don’t). The menu starts with deviled eggs and prawn crackers with three sambals (papaya-chili-shallot-lime, tomato-chili-shallot, and shallot-kaffir-lemongrass-chili). Entrees range from the classic egg-topped fried rice (nasi goreng) and tasty, tender beef curry (rendang), to a market fish curry and tamarind-glazed tempeh. Weekend brunch is also super satisfying with additions like an ayam goreng fried chicken sandwich topped with pickled slaw & kaffir aioli.
