Mulia is a six-star hotel and resort located along Nusa Dua coastline that has a number of restaurants, one of which is The Cafe serving a wide array of international cuisines.
We decided to spend our first dinner in Bali at The Cafe. From Ayodya Resort, we took a taxi (IDR 30,000) to Mulia Resort for around 15 minutes. We did not have any reservations. Guests from other resorts are welcomed to take a feast at The Cafe.
When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by the staff. One of them actually introduced us to the different stations they have. We really like how people there are very friendly and very attentive of your needs.
The Cafe has a vast space that can accommodate more than 100 guests. Lavish ambiance can be observed. What The Cafe boasts of is the great assortment of international cuisines it offers including Indonesian, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Japanese, Indian and Western dishes. A station is dedicated for each region where designated chefs are assigned that would personally prepare your food. It was really wonderful watching the chefs skillfully cook and we also enjoyed talking to them.
At the Western station, you can take so much delight in the different pasta they have. There are a lot of sauce, toppings and noodles to choose from. We mainly had penne seafood pasta in tomato sauce.
Also found at this station is a selection of cheese and cold cuts among other Western stuffs.
You can spoil yourself with a number of fresh sashimi here – tuna, swordfish and octopus! They also have oysters, sushi rolls and seafood okonomiyaki.
The Thai station is home to the much loved Tom Yum soup and curry dishes. You can actually choose from the fresh seafood they have to put in your Tom Yum. Different kinds of salad can also be tried here.
Indian and Indonesian Stations
Chicken Tandoori and Naan will make you crave for the Indian Station while Padang cuisine will get you glued to the Indonesian station. There is also a Sambal selection to choose from. Don’t ever leave without trying Babi Guling (suckling pig), one of the most famous food in Bali.
Chinese noodle soup and roasted duck are a must in the Chinese station. Have fun in choosing your own noodle soup ingredients and let the chef do the cooking for you!
Who does not love Korean barbecue? Definitely not us! The meat is so tenderly cooked with delicious sauces to select from.
They say save the best for last. You can really have a fabulous finale with The Cafe’s Dessert Station. Two rooms are actually provided for this station (what a spoiler!). Take your pick from a wide option of cakes, chocolate fondues, mousse and ice cream.
For the ultimately delicious food, sophisticated ambiance and warm service, The Cafe at Mulia Resort is a must try when going to Bali. Aside from dinner, they also offer breakfast and lunch buffet.
