The way you end a year can be many things — a celebration, a remembrance, a ‘good-riddance-you-awful-thing-you’ — but what it can and should be is the first step in the direction you want to go. And if there’s any table in Bali on New Year’s Eve that sets the right tone for what you want your 2015 to be, it would be Teatro Gastroteque in Seminyak.
Teatro Gastroteque is a restaurant that balances all of the things that make dining so great: it is adventurous, it is an experience, it is rooted deeply in the heritage of Indonesian cooking but taking these recipes into new and unexpected places.
Mandif Warokka and Dan Edwards — two Indonesian chefs who have brought the eyes of the entire Southeast Asian cooking world to their kitchen — have created a space where you sit down at the table and just trust that you’re going to have one of the best meals of your life. That’s not a reputation that most restaurants can live up to, let alone sustain — which makes it the perfect place to start a new year full of possibilities.
