Lunch at The Spicery Deli & Bistro was somewhat unforgettable. Opened in October 2016, the airconditioned space is divided into two sections. The Deli section offers a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, spices, cold cuts, dry produce, meats, coffee, a wine selection and more. The restaurant section is quite a cozy setting with friendly and attentive staff including manager, Pia and two star Michelin executive Chef Dean James Fischer. At a glance, the menu is filled with a wide variety of both Indonesian and continental dishes to choose from. I loved the variety of beverages they have like the Balinese organic juices, healthy boosters, healthy shots and a selection of milkshakes, yum! A healthy breakfast menu is also available at The Spicery – while I didn’t get to try any of those, I did however have an amazing dining experience. We started off with Indonesian classics, Nasi goreng and Ayam chicken satay from their Eat Asian menu and Ayam kuning Balinese yellow chicken curry from their Taste Curry menu. The set was delicious and I especially loved the curry! A sip of the happy sippp Martini was a perfect choice to…. neutralize? We’re told that happy hour, buy one get one cocktail free is happening everyday from 6-7pm and amongst the list I’d recommend Sue Lee 69 for a refreshing kick! Brought to our table next was a large Sombrero nachos which I couldn’t get enough of, a tray full of goodness and pretty darn good looking guacamole! You can order a regular size for only

IDR 69K. Also served with that was a Havana Club chicken burrito with grilled chicken, red beans, guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream - which was simply delicious. Chef Dean was creating the magic and another set of meals was served – and though we were pretty full, we couldn’t resist. The special set consisted of beautifully served Hiroshima Tataki – a beautiful combination of salmon and mango salsa which was delicious and fresh, the Fat Budha Pork Knuckle was an absolutely phenomenal piece of juicy and tender meat with a flavorsome sauce to match. The Exotic Chia Chia was the sweet finish to it all, the chia pudding and tropical fruits were exactly what we needed. The three are from their new Moonshine dinner menu, yes - they are now serving dinner! Starting February 2018, The Spicery will be open from 7am – 11pm on weekdays and 7am – midnight on weekends. Try the Spicery Saturday night party, from 6pm till late for a night full of fun entertainment such as wine tasting, small beer Bintangs for IDR 20K ++, a glass of wine for IDR 50K++, live acoustic, Balinese dance performance and a fire dance you wouldn’t want to miss!
