FOLIE à Bali

Rest assured, the only thing French about this post is its title. No need to get a tab with Google Translate ready.

It’s been a bit more than 2 weeks since I’ve been back from an amazing trip to Bali , and I’m already missing that very special place… And even more its different food and cuisines.

Holidays: Eat all the foods, drink all the booze, take all the snaps

During my time there, I had the chance to try a huge variety of dishes; both local and international. But one of the most unique food experiences I had was at FOLIE Bali  – an exquisite and refreshing sit-down restaurant and patisserie.

Folie - menu

At the corner of a busy Canggu Street this modern and chic bistrot gives off this very cool exotic vibe; while led by Chef Stephane Simon who makes sure he personally interacts with his guests.

Folie- drink
The Coconut Mint, an alcohol-free drink with coconut water.

The cuisine here brings together traditional French gastronomie with feisty Asian flavours.

My friends and I went there around midday, and since had had a late morning and breakfast on that day, I thought to myself that I’d have ‘something light’ for lunch… Yeah right.

The Baba oozing with rum, YUM!

It only took one peak at the lunch menu and at the dessert cabinet to change my mind…

Food, or what holidays are really about

We ended up having a small buffet of various dishes that we shared: A very fresh Gruyère salad with bacon and walnuts, the best French Onion soup, French Fries with mayo and parmesan, a Croque-Monsieur …

I eventually lost count of the food ordered; I started eating.

And for dessert, those not-so-guilty pleasures: Hazlenut éclair, Baba au rhum, grape cheesecake and raspberry and grapefruit mousse.

Till next time, and the next moment of FOLIE…
