Spice by Chris Salans Opens in Seminyak
The third outlet of Spice by Chris Salans opened in July in Seminyak, the fashionable beach town on Bali’s southwest coast.
Spice by Chris Salans is a stylish gastro-bar serving innovative drinks and cuisine based on the surprising flavors and healing properties of Indonesia’s aromatic roots, herbs, and spices.
It is an affordable way to experience the genius of Chris Salans’ internationally acclaimed cuisine based on Indonesian flavors and French techniques, made famous by his flagship Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud, central Bali. It is a culinary approach that has now become an influential movement and propelled Chef Salans to celebrity in Southeast Asia and beyond.
The first Spice by Chris Salans was opened in Ubud, where it became so popular that it was soon followed by another in Sanur. Now a new outlet is in preparation in Seminyak, widely known as the island’s heartland of glamour.
Spice by Chris Salans is a natural fit for Seminyak, with its smart hotels and restaurants, hip spas and beach clubs, and urban lifestyle. Foodies love Spice not only for its imaginative cuisine and “funky drinks,” but also for the collaboration between the chef and the mixologist, who are happy to confer with guests and to design bespoke cocktails that pair ingeniously with a particular dish. The venue on Jalan Batu Belig is in the heart of the vibrant beachside scene.
The concept of Spice by Chris Salans is food sharing and paired cocktails built around fresh ingredients, whole spices, and fine imported spirits. There is also a good selection of wines. Some of the most popular signature dishes are Crispy Pork Belly with turmeric dressing and dukkah spice; Bangkuang Dumplings; Tapioca Root Fries; and Slipper Lobster with curry-leaf butter and tempé.
The ambiance at Spice is casual, happy, and upbeat. Guests are welcomed heartily with greetings in Balinese and looked after by friendly and well-informed staff. The décor is sleek and creative. Interiors at Spice are air-conditioned, with the option to sit at a private table or the bar and watch the chefs at work. From breakfast until late at night, Spice by Chris Salans is a vibrant place to gather with friends for good times and an eclectic culinary adventure that excites all the senses.
