New venues in Bali that opened in January 2024

Kilo Kitchen Pererenan

Kilo-Kitchen-Pererenan---New-Restaurants-in-Bali-2024

Catering to one of Bali’s up-and-coming neighbourhoods, Kilo Kitchen Pererenan welcomes diners into a handsomely designed restaurant space, channelling the same design ethos of its counterpart in Seminyak.

Whilst its predecessor displayed a sophisticated, semi-industrial look, with its cool glass and concrete foundations, the Pererenan venue takes a more natural approach, with wooden wall panelling and furnishings creating a warmer atmosphere. Floor rugs, consciously placed indoor plants, and handpicked art hung on select walls give the space a welcoming living room feel. A terrace space allows for outdoor, al-fresco dining among the foliage as well.

The menu at Kilo Kitchen Pererenan mirrors that served in Seminyak, presenting the brand’s now signature style of fusion cuisine. The approach is a reflection of the journey of the Founders: two Latin Americans finding a home in Asia.

The menu presents Raw, small and Salad starters, made to share; plus hearty mains and desserts. Dishes include creations like the ‘Truffled Tai Yuzu Roll’, the ‘Seafood Ceviche’ served with wonton crisps, ‘Corn Furikake’ with chipotle mayo and nori, and Crispy Soft Shell Crap with compressed watermelon squares. From the mains, long-time favourites include ‘Squid Ink Rice’, ‘Tiger Prawn and Cream of Ebiko Pasta’ and ‘Grilled Wagyu Steak (MB6)’. Consulting Chef Jethro Vincent, who also curates the cuisine at Maize Bali, leads a skilled brigade in the open kitchen, where a focus on locally sourced ingredients makes its way onto the menu.

 A generous selection of Kilo-style cocktails and mocktails, imported wines and premium spirits complement the menu offerings. Open from 7am to midnight, Kilo Kitchen Pererenan also serves breakfast and lunch presenting separate menus, with fresh juices, health drinks and smooth coffees available.

Dome at Desa Potato Head

Dome-at-Potato-Head-New-Restaurants-in-Bali-2024-8

The aptly named Dome welcomes diners into the intriguing, bunker-esque space found adjacent to the poolside of Potato Head Studios. What was once the home of plant-based restaurant, Tanaman (set to reopen soon, watch this space), is now a cool and casual destination in which to enjoy natural wines and bites.

Enthusiasts of architecture and design will likely marvel at the interiors of Dome, where the seemingly incongruent manage to blend perfectly: teak wood seating, space blue floors and steel table tops converge beneath a concave earthen-styled structure. The atmosphere created is the juxtaposition of a retro-future, a vintage-cosmic look and feel.

The dishes at Dome draw a tight focus on locally sourced produce. These are served as small sharing plates that aim to complement a drinking and gathering experience. Some highlights include the ‘Octopus Croquette’, with aioli and nori powder; ‘Beef and Oyster Tartare’; a ‘Tomato Salad’ which features watermelon kimchi and local berries; ‘Cuttlefish Noodles’ in a chicken broth.

Dome’s drinks list is a response to the growing popularity of natural wines. The variety available is impressive, with sparkling, white, orange, rosé, red and sweet natural wines — labelled for those in the know, after their particular preferences be it biodynamic, organic or pét-nat, etc. A good selection is available by the glass. The cocktails and mocktails also have a local focus, using now high-quality, Bali-made liquors and wines and local fruits and produce to flavour and infuse.

Open Wednesday to Sunday, with bar open 3pm to 11pm, dinner starting from 5pm.
