Award-winning Melbourne chef James Tan has opened his first Bali restaurant just outside the artistic centre of Ubud. Set in an undulating bamboo structure amid working rice paddies, Sacred Rice pays homage to nature and time-tested traditions with small plates featuring homegrown heritage rice, nutrient-rich Balinese produce, sensational Indonesian seafood, and rare spices sourced across Asia. The addition of inspired cocktails and first-class wines make this a unique dining experience far removed from the tourist trail. The restaurant only seats 26, so advanced bookings are essential.
