If you know Yan’s House Hotel Bali, then you know that within this unique hotel is Bali’s best-kept secret: the fine dining restaurant Code Grafiti. Chef Bondan Yuliarso always cooks up something unique for us, and now they launch their Afternoon Tea Package. More reasons for us to visit Code Grafiti.
What to do when you are feeling hungry, yet dinner is still a couple of hours away? Grab some Afternoon tea. It is a habit developed in England amongst the royals where they would entertain themselves with a cup of tea served in fine china with bread, butter and cake. Do not confuse afternoon tea with high tea because high tea is actually hearty meals like sandwich, scones and sweets that the working class eat after they return from work. It is called high tea because it is their main meal of the day.
So when Code Grafiti introduces their Afternoon Tea package, we are not surprised to see what how beautifully it is presented. What we did not expect is 10 amazing sweet and savoury dishes that came with it. The Afternoon tea is available from 3-6 PM everyday at the Code Graffiti Restaurant. It is super affordable, only IDR 150.000++ for two. You will get a pot of Dilmah Tea and 10 types of food.
The menu includes gorgeous desserts that are actually fruit based, such as Bedugul Grape Compote in Doughnut Shell, Chocolate Pate Choux with Coconut Mousse, Jack fruit Cheese Cake, Marquisa Verrines Almond Cake, Soursop Lemon Zest Cake, Strawberry Mousse with Chocolate Crisp and Strawberry Strudel. If you notice, the chef did not use standard fruit, but rather exotic fruits that scream Indonesia. So if you’re visiting from outside of the country, this is the place to go. This is one of Chef Bondan’s speciality.
Once you’re done with the sweets, enjoy the scrumptious savoury menus, such as the Crab Samoza, Grilled Vegetable Ciabatta and Pate Choux Scallop. The best thing about this Afternoon Tea is how well rounded the menu are. You won’t find any other place in Bali that serves good portions and these many varieties of food with that price. And all of these items compliments each other well. So, hats off to Chef Bondan and his team.
