It was quite a long flight, and they did not make a good coffee on the plane. We went for a good reason to Tutmak, at our first hours in Ubud, Bali, to taste again their excellent coffee, that is.
I glanced around. Tutmak hasn’t really been changed since the last time we went there in 2006. It is still breezy as I remember. The platform is the best spot we, as a family, always agree to sit back and relax, while waiting for our orders ready.
Tutmak is situated on Jl. Dewi Sartika, Ubud. You can access it through Jalan Monkey Forest if you just come from the airport and take right when you come to a junction of both street.
The service is quick and the waiter/waitresses are friendly. They won’t fail to give you their best smiles! Food’s served usually comes warm or hot, depending on what you order.
Best of Tutmak
They have excellent coffee. I have tried cafe latte, cappuccino and Americano. They have strong flavour, thick aroma, and foamy frothy milk.
The average is good. Nothing really is special. The price is reasonable. They serve various cuisine, from Middle Eastern, Indonesian, Balinese, Italian, and Mediterranian. Pretty much world cuisine. My favourite that I often come back to is Indonesian platter, which is called Nasi Campur. The combination is great. You can get steamed rice with tempeh and egg curry, snake beans and mung bean sprouts salad, diced tempeh in hot chili sambal, grilled tofu topped with hot sambal, cornfritter, potato fritter, fried peanuts, and steamed vegies. There’s also a side dish of two different sambals there, which I did not dare to take. I tasted each of them but they are too hot for me. I guess, I am not that kind of a chili person.
You may want to try out their Middle Eastern plate, Caesar Chicken Salad, Spicy Chicken Sandwich (which you can order baguette instead of white bread for the sandwich), Nasi Goreng, Pancakes served with tropical fresh fruit and honey, or perhaps spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce for the children? Your choice.
Indonesia is into Wi-fi at the moment, and so is Bali. Tutmak has an id and password that you can use for free. While you’re ducking into your latte, you may be as well able to checking out what’s happening in the other world, or even better: running your business?
