2. MAMAK RESTAURANT BALI
Where: Jl Kayu Aya 4B, Seminyak.
Mamak is an award-winning Malaysian restaurant, with branches in Sydney and Melbourne. Named after the roadside stalls of Kuala Lumpur that peddle Indian Malay street food, Mamak is renown for authentic, bold and traditional flavors, with smart and friendly service. It is owned by three good friends, Alan, Clement and Julian who misses the Malaysian snacks from their youth. So they decided to go back home, learn how to make everything and set up shop in Sydney. That was in 2007. N0w, more than 11 years later, Mamak is a household name in Australia for one of the best Asian flavors. Mamak Bali is the restaurant’s first international branch.

Where: Jalan Raya Sanggingan, Ubud
This one hasn’t opened yet, but we’re so excited. We’ve been obsessing over their Instagram post and are really curious to see the place. DUMBO wood fired modern Italian will be opening in January 2018. It’s sister company includes elephant and green ginger noodle house. They will be the new hotspot in Ubud, for sure, bringing the best wood fired Italian pizza, authentic Italian pasta recipes, cool cocktails, and so much more. Expect to hear amazing music played from their vinyl collections, while you enjoy filling your bellies and heart with good chilled out vibe.
