Lunch at Kopi Bali House in Bali Indonesia
Apart from Bali’s various tourist attractions, I find the island’s wide selection of flavors and cuisines fascinating. There are amazing restaurants throughout Bali and it only comes down to identifying where to go, what you like and how much you are willing to pay for your meals.
Kopi Bali House in Prime Biz Hotel in Jalan Raya Kuta
That is why when I had my free day during my stay in Bali, I opted to skip my usual visit in Beach Walk Mall’s Starbucks and tried a local coffee shop instead. Besides, I promised myself that I would have tryout a Balinese coffee shop before leaving.
Avocado Prawn Salad
To make my coffee shop adventure solid, I asked the front desk employees of Bali Dynasty Resort to recommend the island’s best coffee shop and they encourage me to visit “Kopi Bali House” which is located in Jalan Raya Kuta.
Avocado Coffee Shake
I invited my friend to go along with me, we hailed a cab and then used my Waze App to navigate around the area since most of the drivers are not familiar with specific restaurants that I previously visited. Well, I am saying this based on personal experience of roaming around Bali. Thanks to Waze, I was able to locate the restaurant in less than 20 minutes.
It is a good thing that “Kopi Bali House” is not that hard to locate since it is located inside a new hotel called PrimeBiz Hotel. The cafe is located at the spacious ground floor which looks more suitable for business meetings rather than casual get-togethers, but do not fret, the place is not intimidating and it still looks soothing even though there is no alfresco area.
The stylish decor combined with the aroma of freshly roasted beans makes “Kopi Bali House” a very pleasant place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with a cup of the best coffee.
Looking at their menu, the coffee bar offers an all-day dining concept. “Kopi Bali House” is a Balinese coffee business that dates back to 1935 and remains as authentic as its origins yet parallels its competitors in taste, variety and trendy presentation.
The coffee blackboard features great choices of espresso, latte, cappuccino, mocha, decaffeinated and iced. The bar also invites guests to enjoy beers, wines, cocktails, spirits and non-alcoholic refreshments. PrimeBiz Hotel guests are fortunate because there is an available in-room dining.
Before ordering lunch, I first tried their Avocado Coffee Shake – a cold latte drink with fresh avocado and I really enjoyed it.
Then for starter, we tried Rissoles – a local Roll Snacks with Chicken Ragout. It was good and people who are not fond of spicy food will love it.
Next on the table is their version of Escargot – roasted mushroom stuffed with shail and parsley, buttered with choice of pesto or tomato.
Salmon with Thai sauce
We also tried their Avocado Prawn Salad – mixed lettuce, tomato, avocado and prawn with thousand island dressing and garlic bread on the side.
For soup, we had Rawon – a strong rich tasting traditional Indonesian beef black soup. For the main dish, I ordered Salmon with Thai sauce; it has freshly grilled salmon served with sautéed potatoes and vegetable in slightly spicy thai sauce.
The last dish that they served was personally recommended by their barista. The dish is called Gulai Kambing, it is a traditional Indonesian spiced lamb soup that is usually served with rice.
Kopi Luwak Brewing Process
After enjoying our meal, we also tried their Kopi Luwak – one of the premium coffee beans that the shop is currently offering. Although some people find this coffee as a novelty type of beans, I find the taste unique and its profile is truly remarkable. If its not that expensive, I’ll probably brew this frequently.
I liked the place’s food plating, it increased my craving and impressed me as well. Although the cafe is located inside a sophisticated space, it was amazing that everything in their menu is unbelievably affordable.
Kopi Bali’s Kopi Luwak
Overall, the staff members are very proficient and they have good knowledge about the coffee and food selections. “Kopi Bali House” boons a range of various palates, that is why I have no problem recommending this restaurant for people who want to discover local food but not that adventurous enough to try it out in hole-in-the-wall restos and specialty restos.
