DELICIOUS DELIGHT

Failing to have foreign customers staying, flights to Bali not yet being restored, the restaurant team imagined attracting a more local clientele with a menu combining Balinese and international specialties at very attractive prices.
Logically, it should appeal to expatriates living in Bali as well as families from surrounding villages. In any case, this is what we wish. Selamat makan (Enjoy your meal)!

NEW TEPPANYAKI SKILLS AT DAJUMA

Facing the growing success of our Teppannyaki restaurant, our cook team composed of 8 cooks in total decided to expand this particular skill to 2 other colleagues. This is what happened yesterday when our Second Chef Rudi, specialist of Japanese teppanyaki cuisine, (red apron on the picture) transmitted his know-how to Dewi and our First Chef Dedi. Everything is now ready to welcome you anytime in the week in our Sinta lounge for a delicious dinner in the Japanese way!

WHY IS BALINESE CUISINE EXQUISITE?

Since a long time, Bali is famous for the quality of its cuisine. It is easy to check when you are visiting the island where beautifully decorated or more modest warungs (restaurants ) invite you to taste the delicious local specialties such as Babi Guling (Roasted pork), Bebek Betutu (Stuffed duck), Nasi Campur (Mixed fried rice) and the famous Rijsttafel (Combination of the most popular Balinese dishes). But it is also true in the daily life of Balinese families. On the picture, some kids of Dajuma staff are sharing a lunch composed of black beans soup, tumbali (meat cooked in banana leaf), rice crackers and tofu.
There are two main reasons why the Balinese cuisine is so well appreciated: Because of its location in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago, the island has been influenced through the centuries by many different cultures, each of them having brought its contribution to the cuisine. The second reason is definitively linked to the infinite variety of spices we can find in the island. Just a few of them are shown on the picture: torch ginger, star aniss, cardamon, white pepper, white ginger, cinamon, turmeric, nutmeg. Selamat makan! (Enjoy your meal!)

LUNCH ON THE BEACH

Dajuma is also the place in West Bali where it is nice to stop over for a delicious lunch on the beach. This is what is shown on these pictures where 2 groups of guests stop recently for a revigorating break around our delicious specialty called Balinese Rijsttafel. Imagine a traditional tray called Rsi Bojana, normally used for offerings, where are disposed 6 different dishes typical of Balinese cuisine. A culinary experience which is worth it. Why don’t you also stop over next time you travel from/to Java or Menjangan? We would be delighted to welcome you!

RIJSTTAFEL: A MUST OF INDONESIAN CUISINE

There is a simple way to experience the incredible wealth of Indonesian cuisine. It’s by ordering a Rijsttafel! This strange word comes from the Dutch and litterally means “the rice table”. It consists of many dishes giving a good idea of the wealth of the Indonesian cuisine. Although the dishes served are undoubtedly Indonesian, the rijsttafel’s origins were colonial. During their presence in Indonesia, the Dutch introduced the rice table not only so they could enjoy a wide array of dishes at a single setting but also to impress visitors with the exotic abundance of their colony.
Our cooks prepare a special Rijsttafel composed of the best Balinese specialties served on an offering plate usually used in the temples.
The picture was taken by our guest Roger and his spouse from Germany who particularly appreciated the dish and were asking for the recipes because “they would love to get some of their memories alive in Germany”! Selamat makan!

NEW TERRACE

Looking like a leaf fallen from the surrounding trees, we recently inaugurated a new terrace in the garden. With its 80 m2 of benkiraï wood, it is the ideal place where to savor cocktails and balinese tapas in the sunset. But not only : it is also a perfect observatory of the wild life of the cape where hundreds of birds are used to fish between two tides. Hope you will like it !

HAPPY VALENTINE’s DAY AT DAJUMA

Is there a more romantic place on earth where to celebrate the Valentine’s day than Dajuma? Our Chef has prepared a special menu on this occasion and our garden team is ready to welcome you in one of our 3  locations especially decorated in a so romantic way: in our Gazebo (picture), in the garden or directly on the beach. A dedicated butler will take care of you  all along the dinner. Impossible to miss!

DAJUMA WELCOMES WAITERIO

With the growth of our 3 restaurants, it became necessary to choose  a digital and friendly solution to take the orders with the objective to accelerate both the ordering and the cooking processes, diminish the waiting time for our guests and  facilitate the work of our staff. This has been done last month with the Waiterio application: with a few clicks on a tablet, our waiters are now able to take an order in a few seconds which is then directly transmitted to the kitchen. Same increase of speed for the issuance of the invoice. On the picture our staff during the training session. Good luck guys!
