In this edition of Chef’s Recommends, we wandered down Seminyak’s bustling eat street and came across the iconic “Ultimo” Italian Restaurant, an establishment that has been a tourist favourite for almost 15 years now!
After being warmly greeted by staff, they escorted us to Ultimo’s enchanting al fresco dining area, where candlelit and white cloth tables awaited us along with a dinner rush crowd. Served by Chef Sanjaya, was their “Groppa Wagyu Alla Griglia MB – 7 Servita Salsa Al Vino Rosso” for IDR 230,000, a glorious 200 gram grilled Wagyu Rump served with a crusty potato fondant, sautéed vegetables and red wine sauce. It was a fine selection of flavours, accompanied by a glass of red with the highlight of the dish being the Wagyu’s juicy richness and succulence, showcasing it’s true MB – 7 grade with its melt – in – your – mouth texture.
All in all, it was an evening well spent as Ultimo still strongly stands as a tourist and local favourite, with its ever so lively atmosphere and quality dining.
