about this place
The Sarong Group has opened its latest restaurant Hujan Locale up in the hub of Bali’s cultural and arts world, Ubud. A twist on traditional Indonesian food, Hujan serves a combination of dishes found in the backstreet kitchens of southeast Asia, focusing on slow grassroot’s cooking. Incorporating Will’s Scottish background and love of Asian cuisine, expect ‘Thai burgers’ or a whole roasted pig head – a fusion of East meets West, with a focus on seasonality and provenance of ingredients. Hujan, meaning rain, will focus the essentials of cuisine with a “found and foraged” philosophy, and is a manifestation of Chef Will Meyrick’s desire to return to creating smaller restaurants with slow-cooked food. Will, together with his “chef in crime” Palm Amatawet, alongside chefs Tim Bartholomew and Stuart Marsden, now embark on this culinary adventure using the best of local ingredients, sourced from local farmers and fostering stronger links with the surrounding community. The new restaurant is situated on Jl Sri Wedari, Ubud.
