I decided to visit this place on one of my outings to Ubud. It featured a rather eye-catching name, so I decided to give it a shot. Located on one of the main avenues of Ubud, the place was quite strategically located. It was, however, quite difficult to spot, thanks to the clutter of signages from numerous small booths that decorated the street. Once arrived, I made my way to the second floor through a flight of stairs toward the right of the main dining area. The setting was semi-outdoor, meaning it had a roof but no doors. The second floor setting had a more relaxed tropical vibe with plenty of seating options - from typical dinner-and-chair setup to laptop bars and lounge type setups. At 4 pm, the air was perfectly breezy. Food: I ordered their Fish Burger (90k), cause they said fish was healthy. The dish was quite appealing, featuring grilled mahi-mahi sandwiched within gorgeous black-and-white sesame buns, skewed together with a wooden bamboo stick. Next to it was a bowl of oven-grilled baby potatoes that looked like tiny drops of heaven. As soon as I took the first bite, I knew the burger was not going to work. The flaky fish could not hold up, and broke into a million pieces, creating a rather fussy mess on the plate. So I decided to eat it in a rather exquisite fashion - with a fork and a knife. The flavor explosions started as soon as I took my second bite, the sweetness from the soy sauce marinated on the fish, the slight crisp of the buttered bun, the spiciness from the capsicum, and the umami bomb from the capers played the perfect symphony in my mouth. The fish was grilled to the right level of wellness, preserving the consistency and the natural sweetness from the mahi-mahi. Even though it didn’t quite workout as a burger, as a dish, it was superb. Every mouthful was a harmonious bomb of flavors. Watercress gets two thumbs up from me.
