Inspired by the storied culture of the island’s Gianyar regency, Folk is a “Rumah Makan” or a restaurant celebrating the beautiful imperfections of traditional community life through art and design. It cleverly puts together the nuances of yesterday against the refinements of today to create a charming clash of cultures.
Food and Beverage is led by Chef Duncan McCance of Ekstedt (Stockholm), Orana (Adelaide), Burnt Ends (Singapore) and Copper Kitchen & Bar (Ubud) fame, in a space inspired by the brothers and the sisters of the local Ubud community. Going beautifully simple and highly visual is the Folk way – Duncan aims to blur the lines between breakfast, lunch and dinner to create an all-day culinary mash-up. Produce is sourced locally from sustainable partners with select items made in-house whenever possible. Coffee is from a blend developed by the local Tetap Happy Coffee Roasters.
