Every once in a blue moon, you come across a dining experience that just leaves you speechless. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does.. it’s a moment to savor. Chai’Ba Street Kitchen and Bar was one of those experiences. We weren’t anticipating eating the best Indian food of our lives on a small island in Indonesia, and it caught us off guard. For a restaurant that just opened 9 months ago, they’re getting a lot of well deserved attention.

Onto our main dishes. Truthfully, it was hard to narrow it down, but having too many vegetarian and vegan dishes to choose from at a restaurant is a welcome change. We knew we had to try the Vegetarian Thali, a dish I’ve tried many times at Indian restaurants, but this was one for the books. There were dishes on the Thali I had never tried before in my life. The natural smokiness on the Vegetable Skewers from their clay oven was unbelievable. The flavors of the Aloo Gobi and Baigan Barta were perfection. The flavor of the food just speaks for itself here, it’s something you have to experience for yourself to really understand.


Much love, Patrick & Kahala
