Kzu is hands down the best warung in Bali. A warung is a local easy "cafe" offering up a rotating daily selection of mostly Indonesian dishes. My introduction to this hidden gem came through ex-pat Danish fashion designer Birgitte Rabens. Lucky her she spends part of each year in Bali designing and producing her Rabens Saloner collection, and she was kind enough to show me around. Birgitte has the most impeccable taste. Japanese chef Kazuya Takami has created a complete experience. Beginning with the contemporary industrial open-plan space that is designed yet welcoming. The highlight of Kzu waits for you behind the giant perforated metal door guarding the entrance. On offer, you will find a rotating daily selection of about fifty healthy, delicious and largely vegan dishes. Chef Takami counts Japanese, Indonesian, Italian, and Indian cuisines among his influences. Combining these influences with his intense focus on local produce he masterfully balances ingredients, spices and preparations. If I were lucky enough to be a local, I would find a reason to be here at least once a day. The food isn't foodie gourmet; it's just really good and good for you. Opening hours from 11 am to 7 pm mean you really can fit in a meal and a snack in if you are industrious. Full disclosure I ate here every day I was in Seminyak. Grab a Bintang and a full plate of nourishment for what amounts to less than seven US dollars at the current exchange.
