What: Grilled soy-glazed tuna with honey & cardamom, and served with a cucumber, avocado, red & green pepper salad.
Where: Chandi, Seminyak, Bali
Note: OMG! This was probably the most divine tuna steak I’ve had in a very long time. Grilled medium-rare, the texture was slightly crispy on the outside and delicate on the inside. The sweetish taste of honey and soy combined beautifully with a whiff of cardamom. The spicy side salad provided the perfect balance to a truly sublime dish.
I can certainly recommend the Chandi restaurant/lounge, which serves fusion/Indonesian fare. Located along Jalan (Road) Laksamana, a busy stretch of the trendy beach community of Seminyak, the contemporary Balinese interior is striking and inviting. It’s a large establishment that includes a rooftop bar, a garden, espresso and cocktail bars, and fabulous (organic) food. The appetiser I ordered, a mix of organic salad leaves with scallops and drizzled with a light peanut sauce, was the stuff of dreams!
