I have never been to Bali before, but its a must visit place for me very soon after I have got tempted by alot of my friends on their great scenery and especially on the food! Well, since I have not been there, and right now we can get a taste of how actually Balinese food taste like The UMA. I have actually dine at this restaurant a few times that I just did not blog about it and I guess I should now ..
The Uma which located in Kota Damansara next to the Strand that offers a great selection of Balinese food and best of all, its a shop that offers NON-HALAL food. The chef cum owner had work in Indonesia previously and decided to come back to spread Balinese cuisine to locals.
The whole interior was decorated to get as much feel of Balinese as possible, with wooden chairs and tables, and if you prefer something different for dining, you can head upstairs.
With simple decoration that put on the wall of scenery of paddy field, makes you feel like as if you are dining next to it and up in here, they do not have chairs, that offer to sit on the floor style with pillows for your comfort.
They are reasonably price with the portion they serve, you better opted to share and it is advice that for a pax of 3 person you order 2 person’s meal. If not enough then only decided to order extra.
Jus Apokat (Indonesian Avocado Juice) behind – RM 9
Fresh avocado & milk drizzled with chocolates! I am not a Avacado fan but its good, not too thick nor milky
Es Timun Segar (Fresh Cucumber, Lime and Mint juice) – RM 7
Refreshing cucumber mix with lime and some mint. Its the best drink among all, really a thirst quencher. I do not mind to have another 3 more glass. Highly recommended~
Soda Gembira – Milky Air Bandung
Roselle another refreshing drink . . .
Yellow Rice – Tumeric coconut based rice
Saur Rice – Black eye pea rice
Bebek Megoreng (Crispy Fried Quarter Duck) – RM22
Iga Mepanggang – Balinese Pork Rib is a must get item in this set, as it was perfectly bbq that the taste blend very well and juicy, and I sure do not mind to have the whole slab of it.
Kambing Mekuah – Balinese Lamb Curry – it was cook till soft, and love the lamb taste of it.
Be Siap Mepanggang – Balinese Grilled Half Chicken
Be Celeng Base Manis – Braised Pork Meat in Kecap Manis as braised till soft, and fried till the kecap manis sticks well and eat along with yellow rice is just perfect, as it is abit sweet and salty . .
Be Siap Mepanggang – Balinese Grilled Half Chicken the trick on eating this well marinated grill chicken is to tear out a bit and dip with the two condiments, sambal and the kicap there is just heavenly!
Pesan Be Tuna – Grilled Tuna in Banana Leaf
all the sets you choose in there comes with some side dish and Condiments
Sate Lilit (minced fish satay)

Kentang Goreng (spiced potato fries)
Sambal Kecap Manis
As to end on our meal, we ordered Es Campur Bali – RM9 a bowl of Bali’s ABC brimmed with cendol, jackfruit, cincau & coconut. Something which is not too sweet and I love the jackfruit, if they add in more would be even more nice.
Our dinner was rather simple to order as in sets, a set that can just satisfy us that serve most of the authentic balinese food under one big plate. A meal with reasonable price and companion certainly we will be back for more again!
