I was feeling fortunate that my latest trip to Bali on November last year brought me to this hidden gem within Bali’s culinary domain. I first heard of Kilo from social media and since I only spent 2 days 1 night in Seminyak area, I chose my dining destination cautiously and I found this recently opened restaurant at the small street of Drupadi.
This small restaurant adopts a minimalistic natural concept for the interior and the building exterior was dominated with industrial style steel and glasses. It was a love at first sight. I instantly grew fond of this chic establishment.
This restaurant is the innovation of a Singapore’s restauranteur, Javier Perez, looking to expand Kilo globally to other regions after first opening Kilo Kitchen at Kampong Bugis, Singapore. Providing room service meals and breakfast to Uma Sapna Villas, Kilo Bali is operating as an independent restaurant.
Coming without reservation, we were lucky to get a seat for two since I later found out that most of the tables were already reserved. The menu served Southeast Asian fusion dishes of Japanese and Italian cuisines with creative feeds from latin flavours.
Wasabi Tuna Tartare (IDR 90,000) – A very pleasant appetizer to start the dinner. The tuna mixed with avocado, sesame, shallots and wasabi creates a wonderful and fresh tartare blend. Served with flour crisps, you can consume the tartare by putting it on top of the crisps and then have a bite.
Corn Crusted Crab (IDR 130,000) – The crispiness and the taste of the crab cake was appetizing to say the least.
BBQ Pork Rib Kilo (IDR 120,000) – After having two wonderful appetizers, you somewhat doubt whether the main dish can outperform them. Prepared with homemade barbeque sauce, roasted marinated peppers and chicaron, the tender pork meat gave the dinner the climax it requires.
Mango Yogurt Sandwich (IDR 65,000) – Nice dessert with a bit of sourness from the yoghurt gave the perfect conclusion to our dinner session.
I could not find anything that I did not like during the dinner session. Kilo Kitchen was definitely another new force to be reckoned with in Seminyak’s culinary-packed world.
