SARONG: Redefining Cuisine Culture
Seminyak institution Sarong has unveiled a vibrant new menu in recent weeks. The beloved Bali restaurant, helmed by revered chef Will Meyrick, has embraced a broader exploration of Asia and revamped existing offerings to reflect the chef’s ample travels as of late. “I’ve done a lot of travelling in the past year and wanted to introduce more diversity to the menu,” Meyrick says of the decision to overhaul the dishes at the fine diner. “Sarong can move quite easily from one dynamic to the other. It always has been an Asian restaurant under one roof, and was one of the first of its kind in Bali.”
The pioneering restaurant is now on its 13th year and remains one of Bali’s most adored venues.

The fish, or “pla”, can either be whole or cut into pieces, traditionally it’s catfish but I like to us the fleshier gurami
