Along Seminyak’s original eat street of Jalan Kayu Ayu, you’re likely to stumble upon the bustling patio of Ginger Moon. A quick peek in pretty much seals your fate as you see tables of intimate groups crossing arms to pick out their favourite bites from a spread of sharing plates.
There’s nothing quite like dining family-style, and Chef Dean Keddel serves up a seriously tasty fare that pays tribute to the flavours of local Balinese recipes. Ginger Moon has perfected that ‘fusion’ balance that so many restaurants attempt, but often fail at. The style of food is contemporary Asian but with an interesting spin on particular dishes: steamed buns stuffed with Indonesian beef rendang, suckling pig pizzas, rice paper rolls filled with the local salad ‘gado-gado’. Of course, classic delights are on offer too, from dumplings, noodles, wok stir-fry and smoky grills. Astonishingly casual dishes are coupled with an enchanting tropical influence that fit perfectly with the ‘canteen’ style of this Seminyak institution. Go with friends and family and share around a little bit of everything.
