The impeccably designed infinity pool , along with the view of the luscious valley and the mesmerising gush of Ayung river below is jaw dropping. This will welcome you as you step down the stylish lobby. Viceroy Ubud is a surprisingly small resort with big 5 stars written all over it.
We came here for this view and for a promise of good foods.
With its tastefully decorated interiors and beautiful landscape surroundings, it certainly perked both my interest and appetite.
Seared Foie Gras .Pan-Seared French Duck Liver / Kluwek Sauce / Tamarind chutney / Starfruit Coulis / Pain D'Epices Crumble / Daikon Strings.
It was buttery and literally melts in the mouth.
Served with crusty warm bread and rolls , along with good quality cold butter.
The Mains:I saw a picture of this burger somewhere and requested to have it even if it's not on the menu.They have menus exclusively for their staying guests, and this is just one of those foods available for them. Luckily , Cascades still extended their hospitality to me and let me have it. How nice.
FF stick to the menu available .
Tasmanian Salmon / Sous Vide Lemon Zest and Thyme Tasmanian Salmon Fillet / Potato Confit / Cilantro Cream / Corn Chips / Ocean Flavored Popcorn Crumble
A delicate and small portioned trio of goodness. Every crumb is exploding with flavors.
A refreshing raspberry sorbet
Lemongrass tinged creme brûlée .
All those delicious foods had me purring like a contended cat as we travel back to Komaneka.
A quick dip in the pool and another session of serious papering from Komaneka's excellent spa later that afternoon, perfected my promising day.
Melting Wok is a small cozy place . Menu is written on a chalkboard which is carried around and presented by waitstaffs. Atmosphere is lively, faces of people eating, happy. A very good sign.
Foods at melting wok are packed with flavors and with just enough heat to whet diner's appetite. Portions are generous and service is excellent. The French owner is a lovely lady who makes sure that every guest is well attended to. Her distinct french nasal chattering could be heard within the premises while her laughter and merry mood infects patrons as she hops and socializes from one table to another.
Desserts are just as delicious as the savouries.
Rose enjoyed some crepes drenched in generous chocolate sauce and ice cream,
I had this silky custard with coconut sauce..
Because of its relatively good priced and delicious foods, Melting Wok it is quite popular in Ubud. Place is packed when we got there, thankfully, Komaneka made some reservations ahead. Try to call for a table esp. at dinner time to secure a place.
