Posted on: November 05, 2008 at 10:28PMI love Indonesian food, one of my favorite restaurants is Cafe Luna in Ubud. Ubud is set in the heart of Bali, amongst the rice terraces and is the center of Balinese culture. Cafe Luna offers cooking classes a few times a week. I love to cook and found the classes educational and fun. We went to the local market and learned about the regional spices and produce, we sampled exotic fruits and vegetables. We brought our bounty from the market to their outdoor kitchen and shared in cooking and eating a beautiful meal. The price per person is about eight US dollars, and well worth it. The most enjoyable part was getting to know the local people and meeting fellow travelers from around the globe. report a problem
Posted on: November 17, 2008 at 10:21PMJust returned from Bali. We took the cooking class which was $25 a person. Well woth it. It oriented us to the Ubud market where all the great bargains are. My daughter found a vendor selling chicken satay for 1 cent a skewer. Delicious. The class was funand great mixture of travelers who were staying at Honeymoon where the kitchen was upstairs. We stayed at Munis bungalows (murnis.com). We had a private house overlooking the rainforst. Pretty amazing when you consider there are 3.1 million people on the island, and privacy is hard to come by. Ubud has the best restaurants. Cafe Lotus, The Bridge, Murnis Wahrung and Indus. We tried them all. We missed the Babe Guling place where customers start lining up at 10 am. According to the food Network, one of the top five pork eateries in the world. Do not stay in Kuta or Legian go directly to Ubud. We are going back next year.
