100% vegan & good value
Posted on 06 / 21 / 2012
This new cafe is a welcome addition to the vegan offerings in Ubud. It's a simple place with an Indonesian menu and very well priced.
There are curries, soups, salads pastas and stir fries. I had the vegan rice combo which arrived with stirfried vegies with tofu, mushrooms with greens, mock prawn crackers and a sate stick. All for around $2! The mock meat on the sate stick was moist and tasty. (There is also a mock fish dish on the menu) The mushrooms were tasty but the rest of the dish was on the bland side. I added their sambal for a bit of a kick. It looks innocent but defiantly packs a punch. The mixed juice was great too.
There are 3 pancakes available for dessert, if you have the room. (Banana, mixed fruit or chocolate). While you are waiting for your meal there is plenty of reading material on veganism and climate change courtesy of literature by the humanitarian & spiritual teacher Ching Hai.
I would have liked to have had more time to explore the rest of the menu but I couldn't find it on my first day in Ubud from the markings on the map. It's located further east than indicated on the Happy Cow map. Continue walking east from the market on Jl Raya Ubud. It's near the corner of Jl Jembawan, around 100m east from the Neka Gallery. (It's next door to Body and Soul, which is highly recommend for a great massage by an expat who has lived in Ubud for 12 years.)
I'd recommend going with a few friends and order a variety of dishes in order to sample as much of the menu as possible. The bill will still be tiny. Enjoy :)
