The Cafe at The Mulia, Bali

Macaroons The Cafe Bali

You’ll never go hungry in Bali, that much is certain! There are a lot of foods offered from traditional Balinese foods just anywhere down the streets to an international fine dining at a hotel. This island of gods does has a huge range of choices from cafes, restaurant, street foods, bakeries, to local places to eat. That’s one of the reason I keep coming back to Bali. I just can’t refuse the foods and the hospitality it offers.

You’ve probably already noticed that I lived in Bali for 2 months last summer. And guess what? I came back there just exactly last weekend.

One of the highlight of my culinary experience during the weekend is my lunch time at The Cafe @ The Mulia. The Mulia is a newly opened 6 star (Yes you read it right. Six) hotel, resort, and villas in Nusa Dua, Bali. It’s surrounded by the stunning Nusa Dua coastline with a 1 km stretch of private white sandy beach and a beautiful view. Too bad that it’s raining that day so I didn’t enjoy playing at the beach. But, taking a sip of coffee at The Cafe is a better idea of how to spent the afternoon I guess 🙂

Anyway, The Mulia, Mulia Resort & Villas have 7 outlets (Restaurant, Bar, Lounge) inside the properties. The Cafe is one of a spacious dining place which serves almost everything from Asian to Western cuisine. There are 8 food stations at the restaurant : Western, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Indonesian, and Dessert (my favorite)! What’s even more interesting is that each station has its own chef who will prepare the foods for us. We also found that the chef head comes from Hawaii. You can imagine how Gaby and I enjoyed our lunch time very much!

Western Station

One of the highlight of Western Corner at The Cafe is the live cooking session! You can ask the chef in charge to cook a plate of pasta for you. There are a wide variety of sauce and toppings. And you can ask for the pasta of your choice. I had creamy sauce and bacon for my spaghetti.

I was planning to pay a full attention of how the chef prepare my spaghetti, but not until a minute later, I found myself strolling around the Thai Corner just to get myself more foods. I know… I know… Don’t judge me.

Our spaghetti is ready. Yum! When it comes to pasta, it has to be creamy. That’s our rules. I’m not sure if this one is Carbonara or Alfredo. But never mind, I love both. The even better part is, it comes together with a pinch of chili flakes (if you ask for some). Just to make a little kick in it.

And these are tiny little baked pasta. Gaby took one for us to share and we both love it!

Another interesting part of Western Corner is the Cheese Platter.

I totally forgot to take a bite of our cheese platter as I’m too busy with my desserts (you’ll find out why pretty soon enough). But I’m pretty sure Gaby had a bite. She even mentioned of how nice the bread is.

Chinese Station

Just beside the Western Station was the Chinese Station. I can spot some crispy pork, honey pork and roasted duck here.

Too bad I didn’t taste any of it since I’m on my red meat diet.

Thai Station

Aside from my red meat diet, I found a great Tom Yum soup at the Thai station. You can choose the fresh seafoods and the chef will boil it up for you. I had fresh shrimps, squid, fish balls, mushroom, and scallops.

When I order a bowl of Tom Yum soup, the chef in charge was like : “Have you ever taste a tom yum soup before?”. “Hell yeah! I’m a big fans of Thai food.” “Well, this one’s gonna be so good. You’re gonna love it.”

He was totally right. I really enjoy my soup. I even forgot to share it with Gaby. It’s clear, light, fresh and full of Thai flavor. Works perfectly for my appetizer.

Korean Station

Korean station is another different thing. Well, I must admit that I don’t really enjoy having korean food – except for the bbq. But once again, I’m on my red meat diet so I didn’t eat any of it. Too bad. They look really good, don’t you think?

Japanese Station

This station is Gaby’s favorite! She keep telling me how she loves The Cafe’s sashimi and sushi as they are so fresh and delicate. And in fact, she never found another restaurant serving sashimi fresher than The Cafe in Bali.

Indian Station

Indian station is one of my favorite! I don’t eat Indian food very often but whenever I could found Indian curry, I’ll have it. Even better when Roti Canai is around.

Surprisingly, the butter chicken and chicken tandoori tasted really good! I wish I took more piece piece of chicken.

Oops I accidentally skipped this one! Some said, there will be Balinese suckling pig served once in a while. And it tasted really good – tender and not too oily. I’ll definitely check their suckling pig out next time.

Dessert Station

And finally, here comes the best thing. Yup, it’s dessert time! The Cafe does have a big dessert station which offers so many kind of desserts. And they’re all free flow!

There are homemade ice creams with around 12 selection of flavors, chocolate fondues, sorbets,  macaroons, cheesecake, panna cotta, mousse, and many many more.

Our favorite goes to their cheesecake! It’s basically a no baked cheesecake served in a small glass with blueberry sauce on top. The sweet and sour taste somehow make a great combination. Yum!

And…. a cone of good ice cream would be such a great way to end the lunch time 😉

Thank you so much Mika and Diana for inviting us! The food was awesome and there are so many dishes to chose from. The staffs were warm and friendly. And sure we had such a great time. We’d be more than happy to come back for more foods next time.
