Movida Spanish Restaurant from Australia to open in Bali

PTT FAMILY, THE GROUP BEHIND THE BALI INSTITUTION POTATO HEAD BEACH CLUB, AND MOVIDA, THE ACCLAIMED SPANISH RESTAURANT FROM AUSTRALIA, PARTNER FOR AN INNOVATIVE BALI VENTURE

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.

AWARD-WINNING BARTENDER AND PTT FAMILY DIRECTOR OF MIXOLOGY DRE MASSO TO OPEN AKADEMI CENTRE OF MIXOLOGY AND COCKTAIL BAR IN BALI

Created by award-winning bartender and author Dre Masso, Akademi is a hub for theworld’s most celebrated and innovative mixologists and a centre for the craft. Located in the lobby of Katamama, PTT Family’s first hotel, Akademi will open in January 2016 and offer patrons a curated selection of unique libations, utilising the finest local ingredients.

The focus of Akademi’s menu is the exploration of Indonesia’s fine tropical offerings. In addition to one of the biggest collection of premium spirits in the country, the bar houses a vast range of infused locally produced arak made from coconut, rice and cane. Dre and his team have worked with island tribes and local artisans as well as permaculture experts to grow the best produce on the hotel grounds, all to create drinks that showcase the best of Indonesia. Akademi plans to contemplate, dissect and transform a different indigenous ingredient every month in its quest to innovate while still respecting the local flavours.

Also a learning lab, Akademi will welcome a roster of international mixologists who will explore local flavours and create innovative cocktails as well as help train a new generation of local bartenders to international standards by passing on their knowledge and experience. Visiting experts already confirmed include Zdenek Kastanek of Singapore bar 28 Hongkong Street, Soran Nomura of Fuglen in Tokyo and Samuel Ng of Black Pearl in Melbourne.

Designed by the PTT Family in-house team, Akademi pushes the boundaries of constructability and explores the natural material of terrazzo. On entering the space guests are greeted with four shades of terrazzo, brass accessories and royal blue seating upholstery. Taking centre stage within the space is Akademi’s bar station designed by Dre with a vintage ’70s pendant light by Gaetano Sciolari.

The Akademi experience is complete with bespoke ceramic, wood and copper cocktail vessels made by local artisans and a vinyl turntable with a Klipsch hi-fidelity audio system. In addition, a library of rare and fascinating drinks literature, including a first edition of ‘The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks’ by David A. Embury, originally published in 1948 and a 1947 edition of the ‘Bartender’s Guide’ by Trader Vic is available for reference.

Opening January 8th, Akademi’s high regard for its indigenous ingredients as well as its commitment to education and community values makes it not only unique to Bali, but unique to the hotel world.
