There’s a brand-new social club and kitchen in the trendy Nyuh Kuning neighborhood that promises to electrify the Ubud social scene! Open from breakfast, Current dishes out a full breakfast and lunch/dinner menu plus a high voltage cocktail list to take you well into the night.
Health aficionados will be pleased to know that Current uses local, organic ingredients to create a menu that puts a twist on Western and Asian classics inspired by Bali’s wealth of fresh produce. It’s East-meets-West with dishes like breakfast bao buns with house-cured bacon and Kitamani-coffee-braised short ribs. There’s a focus on sharing plates – including Tokyo Disco Fries with bonito, octopus and okonomiyaki sauce, and Wonton Nachos where guac meetschicken karaage. The Local AF smoothie bowl is a homage to Bali: packed with snake fruit, mangosteen, jackfruit, pandan jelly and palm molasses.
Beverage-wise, Current’s cocktail list is designed to surprise at a very affordable price. With a locally-sourced arak distilled from red rice, the I Wanna Jamu With You, Bali Mule and Monkey Warrior cocktails highlight Indonesia’s famous liquor. The non-alcoholic options are equally strong. The 100% organic arabica, single-origin coffee blend is sourced from a local Kintimani farmer and the beans are roasted fresh in-house daily in the kitchen’s custom roaster.
Indonesian chef and entrepreneur Joshira Yugopradana, the brains behind Current, calls the new venue “A place for Ubud to get down with its casual-sexy self”, adding that it’s been designed to be a spot for the Ubud community to socialize and meet-up over great food, unique cocktails and cool events. Patrons can expect everything from low-key movie nights and talks with guest speakers, to special guest DJ sets and Gin & Tonic Happy Hours.
Yugopradana’s other restaurants, Laramona and Don U, are already fixtures on the Ubud landscape for their creative and delicious fare. Current is set to delight too, as an ideal place to hang out between home and work (or play!), with a menu to match.
