Editor’s Pick: Tiger Palm, Seminyak

Tiger Palm Seminyak

Will Meyrick’s outstanding Balinese portfolio of dining establishments such as Sarong, Mama San and Ubud’s Hujan Locale are always bustling with expat residents and visitors alike, signaling this Scottish chef’s tremendous popularity. His latest addition, Tiger Palm, has just opened its doors in the brand new Seminyak Village shopping mall. The eclectic décor of Tiger Palm transports you to the ‘Palm Court’ of the famous Eastern and Orient Hotel in Penang, Malaysia, presenting a mixture of tropical mid-century modernism and vintage Malay and Tiki-pop, creating a lovely colonial charm.

The menu presents the historic influences of Nyonya, Thai and Peranakan Jawi cuisines, of the Chinese traders and self-starting businessmen from Southern India. You can see that in the richness of the cultures from the dishes, such as the famous Nasi Kandar. Open from early morning, serving Kopitiam-style breakfast with dim sum, such as chee cheong fun, chicken balls rice, coddled eggs, nasi lemak, apam with fish curry, char kuay teow, nyonya laksa, wan tan mee and Penang hokien mee followed by all-day dining and then dinner, continuing into the night with after-dinner drinks.

Malaysian street stall favourites are amongst the most popular starters and food court heroes dominate the mains.

Wash everything down with fresh juices, smoothies, traditional Malaysian lassies or something stronger – let the experienced bartenders surprise you.

Editor’s Pick: Sea Circus, Seminyak

in Dining by

We are in love with this whimsical establishment on Jalan Kayu Aya, with its unique facade made from coloured glass louvers. The interior is no less enticing: a turquoise timber bar lined with high white stools and washed wood tables dotted with mason jars sprouting fresh wildflowers and matched with colorful metal chairs. At night tiny twinkle lights are lit to create a cozy place perfect for a catch up with friends or a romantic date.

Food is healthy yet hearty. For breakfast, choose eggs your way; add favourite sides and complement with fresh fruit juice, or opt for super-food quinoa & chia seed coconut milk porridge with grilled banana, pistachios and goji berries. Sea Circus coffee brings not only a good dose of caffeine but also daily motivation. An inspiring quote printed on a cute piece of paper, a fragrant frangipani flower and a cookie accompanies every Kintamani Arabica coffee served here.

Lunch and dinner menus are spiced with favourites including snapper ceviche, marinated pork tacos, beetroot and orange salad with feta and toasted hazelnuts washed down with tantalizing margaritas, signature Bloody Mary’s or tropical cocktails ready to be shared from glass milk jars.

If you are on the go, grab take-away coffee and incredible gelato.

Sea Circus is busy all day long. While they don’t take reservations for breakfast and lunch, dinner bookings can be made at +62 361 738 667.
