Romeo’s Contemporary Flare

Dining | Written By, NOW! BALI |

Within the Legian area there is a small yet crowded road called Jalan Padma Utara, packed tight with hotels and restaurants left and right. The majority of the establishments there suit that congested, commercial tourist scene. However there is a hidden gem in Padama Utara, whose building adds a bit of contemporary flare to the area. It’s Ossotel’s very own ROMEOS Bar & Grillery.

Within the Legian area there is a small yet crowded road called Jalan Padma Utara, packed tight with hotels and restaurants left and right. The majority of the establishments there suit that congested, commercial tourist scene. However there is a hidden gem in Padama Utara, whose building adds a bit of contemporary flare to the area. It’s Ossotel’s very own ROMEOS Bar & Grillery.

While I went through their extensive list of dishes, I realized that the way Romeos was designed meant that I felt quite separated from the busy street outside. The gigantic windows and high ceilings provided the entire space with fresh breeze.  I ordered the Caesar Salad and Grilled Jumbo Prawn to start with, then for mains decided to tackle their specialty 300gr Pork Ribs!

The portion of salad was very generous; the mixed greens already mixed with their Caesar dressing, three grilled jumbo prawns and a perfectly boiled egg. It was fresh, succulent and filling. Then, the chef himself came out to present my pork ribs. He explained that their high quality ribs are imported from the US and are slow cooked for 18hours with the sous-vide technique before they are grilled, ensuring all the nutrients and moisture of the ribs remain. A delicious cider sauce is paired with the pork ribs, as the cider is said to help with the digestion of the pork’s fat.

A portion of scrumptious chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream helped to end my dinner on a sweet note. That wasn’t the end of my night at Romeos though, as after dinner I stepped into Romeos’ ladies night, held every Thursday night; free shots of tequila and vodka for the first 25 ladies. The live band accompanied the fun refreshments, playing a great array of all time favourites. Dinner and drinks at Romeos was a superb closure of hot sunny Saturday!

Romeos is always busy at dinnertime, so making a reservation is highly recommended.!
