The Uma, Authentic Balinese Food at The Strand Kota Damansara

When we walk into Thai restaurant, we were greeted SAWADEEKAP! …  SWASTI ASTU! is what you going to be greeted when you walk into an Indonesian restaurant.Recently I was invited for an official full fledged opening for Balinese restaurant called The Uma, at The Strand Kota Damansara. The Uma means padi field in Balinese language make the name sounds simple and easy to remember.

He was previously work in food related industry Indonesia for few years. Then quit his job to venture into cooking authentic Balinese food due to his high interest in Balinese cuisine. With the help of his friends who are local Balinese people, he follow and cook the same way as in normal household way without changing the cooking method, spices and recipes.
