POD CHOCOLATE Pod Chocolate Factory & Cafe provides the ultimate chocolate experience. Nestled between rice paddies and the Ayung River on the grounds of Bali Elephant Camp in Carang Sari village, Pod uses locally grown organic cocoa pods to produce a limited amount of high quality handmade chocolates. Step into chocolate heaven as beans are roasted and hot liquid chocolate is tempered on granite tables and then carefully transformed into bars, pralines and even chocolate lipstick. The glass-fronted kitchen adjoins the café, so once you’re done filling up on chocolate you can relax with one of the signature hot or iced chocolate drinks made with pure Pod chocolate or some of Bali’s best coffee (all while elephants stroll by below you). It’s a mix of natural, healthy chocolate with a solid dose of style and decadence. Best of all Pod is helping local farmers fight pests naturally and grow organic while providing premium pricing to support the local community and help put Bali on the global chocolate map – we call that Pod-tastic! Jalan Tukad Ayung, Carang Sari, Ubud, Bali www.pod-chocolate.com

BISTROT

The Bistrot has only just opened its gleaming glass doors and is a seductive, stylish addition to the busy scene on Bali’s Jalan Laksmana, or Eat Street, in Seminyak. From the exposed brick walls, antique decorative telephones and semi-open kitchen downstairs through to the more comfy dining lounges upstairs, heavy wooden floors and gorgeously done bathrooms. For now, the menu is fairly classic French and international focused, with starters such as beef carpaccio. Mains are seafood heavy) with plenty of meat options as well!
