Fine dining can be stuffy and unfriendly, but Makan Place breaks out of this status quo full force. Their premium cuisine is accompanied by a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, and it all starts with the Indonesian chef who whips up every creation, Theodorus Imannuel. Indonesian for “eat,” the word makan truly describes the root of this place: quality concoctions, local ingredients and plates that take the cake.
Like many Balinese culinary explorations, Makan Place encourages its visitors to share plates with their party. This gives people the opportunity to taste a range of flavors, like Balinese crackling pork knuckle, Thai papaya salad and beef pho. Trust us when we say the papaya salad is a must. A range of mains have the power to make any eater salivate at first glance. Braised lamb shank, Balinese pork tacos and seafood marinara pizza are just some of the drool-worthy options.
At Makan, there actually is a right way to end a meal, and it’s by way of their popcorn choux bun. Sweet, fluffy, creamy and crunchy—this unique dessert has got it all. Refreshing subzero beers, chilled teas, expertly crafted cocktails and an aura of togetherness bind the meal, no matter who you’re dining with. Having just opened in the latter half of 2018, Makan Place has already made quite a name for itself. This dining destination is on the up and up, and it’s waiting for you to be their guest.
