Far from the sizzling restaurants and nightclubs neighboring Bali’s seashore, in another part of the island, up the hill, there is a special place situated inside a tranquil jungle-covered riverbank near Ubud, named COMO Shambhala Estate. To support their offer of world-class health retreat programs, they provide a healthy and energising Sunday Brunch at Glow restaurant which includes raw options from the estate’s organic vegetable garden, freshly caught seafood and the finest imported grain-fed beef.
An open kitchen greeted us, which we quickly discovered serves a range of delicate and nutritious dishes, a trademark of Como Shambhala cuisine. Kicking off the gastronomic brunch experience in a green forest atmosphere surrounding the space, they offered us a variety of fresh garden and pasture produce. Avocado and soy bean dip, chia seed crisps, with marinated tomato, grilled zucchini and red pepper salad with feta, mint and pine nuts was just the beginning. A variety of steamed dishes like shiitake mushroom, cabbage and tofu dumplings, as well as lobster, chicken, and spinach dumplings were next. Straight from the grill they served tiger prawns, marinated lamb skewers, and wagyu beef sliders. As for local specialties, they are serving the likes of mixed sate, grilled pepes of kingfish, and stir-fried tempeh. Finishing the brunch, the multiple chef’s selection of sweet treats was delivered unabashedly to our table with Quinoa and pumpkin pudding, chocolate fondant, young coconut jelly, rose scented meringue, passion fruit curd and berry salad. What a delicious and inventive brunch!
