Movida Spanish Restaurant from Australia to open in Bali


PTT Family, the group behind the Bali institution Potato Head Beach Club, and Frank Camorra of MoVida, the acclaimed Spanish restaurant group from Australia, have partnered on an innovative Bali venture, the launch of MoVida in Seminyak, Bali.

With five establishments in Australia, MoVida is the proven leader of Spanish cuisine throughout the country and is now establishing its first overseas outlet. Combining MoVida’s blend of traditional and modern Spanish cuisine and Potato Head’s signature aesthetic with the island’s tropical surrounds, MoVida in Bali will showcase the best of its parent companies while presenting brand-new ideas and concepts when it opens at the start of 2016.

MoVida Bali will be located within the Katamama hotel, the PTT Family group’s first hotel, which will fully open in March 2016. Reflecting the exotic setting, the restaurant’s architecture and interior design will have a distinctly modern aesthetic. The restaurant will showcase a unique and contemporary style of craftsmanship within the Bali context, featuring traditional Balinese bricks, rattan and teak with the furniture and interiors handcrafted by Bali’s finest craftsmen and artisans. The restaurant interior design will also feature classic and vintage furniture, handcrafted artisanal pieces and original designer collectibles.

The MoVida Bali menu takes inspiration from its new island location and climate, whilst retaining the Spanish character it is renowned for. MoVida co-founder Frank Camorra and MoVida Bali head chef Jimmy Parker have worked with local island producers who have respectful and passionate engagement with the land and sea to develop the menu. Local Balinese producers are currently growing ingredients native to Spain especially for MoVida Bali, a move that blends the restaurant’s commitment to authenticity and its appreciation for its new location.

“As part of the culinary approach for our Bali venture we will be tailoring a number of our signature dishes to reflect the tropical landscape – our dishes will still feature distinct MoVida flavours, highlighting the best produce Bali has to offer,” said Camorra.

The menu will include unique ingredients and offerings, such as gourmet conservas and cured meats imported directly from Spain, lighter creations to reflect the island atmosphere, and signature MoVida dishes recreated with local ingredients. MoVida Bali’s impressive bar will showcase a selective, but solid, list of cocktails based on celebrated classics, including at least four different types of sangrias available by the glass, and a wide range of fine Spanish wines.

In addition to the gourmet tinned seafood and fine hams imported from Spain, dishes served in the restaurant include Tapas, such as Anchoa (Cantabrian anchovy, crouton, smoked tomato sorbet) and Tartar (Wagyu tartar, whipped roe, sesame crisp); Raciones, such as Bacalao (saffron-battered cod, mojo verde, piquillo pepper), Cecina (air dried beef, truffle foam, poached organic egg) and Arroz (seafood and saffron bisque wet rice); as well as dishes from the Josper oven, including Pescado (whole baked halibut with a burnt butter sauce, hazelnuts and capers), Cordero (Central Javanese suckling lamb shoulder with saffron potatoes) and Bistec (Wagyu flank steak, white anchovies and horseradish).

MoVida Bali will also feature desserts that highlight the best of Indonesian ingredients, including Flan (Spanish Cream Caramel with Spiced Pestiños Pastries), Gazpacho (Pineapple Gazpacho with Coconut Sorbet and Tropical Fruits) and Gazta Tarta (Burnt Basque Cheese Cake with Strawberry Sorbet).

A site-specific collaboration that showcases the best of both partners, the restaurant will open on 8th January 2016, seven days a week as part of the Katamama hotel, a venue which is set to become Seminyak’s landmark food, beverage and cultural destination.
