Hujan Locale by Will Meyrick | Ubud, Bali

Hujan Locale’s cuisine reflects my increasingly involved forays into all things Asian. He is often seen traipsing through back streets of some remote village in Java talking with an old granny, or visiting a local market to see what new things he can discover.

Hujan’s ethos is to source food locally as much as possible. More concerned farmers and produce growers are coming up with ethically produced chickens, pigs and a “found and foraged” philosophy.

Embracing the ethos of the Slow Food Movement, you will find that many of the dishes are slow cooked – the way to tenderize as well as to allow flavours to merge and soften.
