Dekuta – Nebula Room

Kuta, Bali

When you think of Poppies Lane, trendy restaurants that offer considerably great food is not the first thing that come to mind. Located on a well-known street in the heart of Kuta, Nebula Room, positioned at Dekuta Hotel, is one of the areas’ best kept secrets.

 

With its unique tropicana/bohemian vibes, it’s hard to believe Nebula Room is only a 2-minute walk from Kuta Beach (say what?)! You can also find Depalm Rooftop & Lounge on the second floor. Right off the bat, you are greeted with a burst of vivacious color. Color is marked everywhere – on the walls, ceilings, floors, chairs, tables, etc. Details I especially like are the batik covered chair cushions. The eclectic interior design, a fuse of Indonesian and South American influences, is a feast for the eyes. 

 

Speaking of feasts, Nebula Room offers Indonesian cuisine with a European touch. We started things off with a fresh round of strawberry daiquiris and iced teas. You have no idea how happy I was to see these after a day of sweltering heat – so delicious!

 

As for appetizers and main dishes, we had the Quinoa Salad, Stellar Burger and Khao Pad Moo Krob. The Quinoa Salad is definitely not your traditional salad. It’s a mouthful of rucola and quinoa with mustard dressing. The flavor could prove a little too much for most Indonesians, but since I enjoy arugula in general, it was acceptable. A crowd favorite was the Khao Pad Moo Krob, a traditional thai fried rice with crispy pork belly. Whenever the words pork belly are mentioned, I’m all in!

 

They were all pretty tasty, but I would have to say the Stellar Burger definitely stood out from the bunch. It’s a 150gr imported AUS beef patty served with tons of BACON (I die), mozzarella cheese, tomato, onion, fried egg, arugula, hash brown & homemade hollandaise sauce. You’ll need to gather a massive appetite to chow this one down – just look at the size of it (good for sharing)!
