Kakiang Ubud Bakery was a real treat for us. It's located on Jl. Pengosekan (south of Jl. Hanoman) in Ubud, right next to the Japanese owned Kakiang Bungalows.
doesn't really stand out and I
won't be surprised if we have driven passed it many times when we were
searching for a nice place to have lunch.
But luckily we found it at last....
This Ubud Bakery is the place if you are craving for a real tasty piece of bread or a sandwich with great fillings.
Of course, when in Bali you must taste the famous Bali food and enjoy all their wonderful dishes...
I can imagine that when you aren't from Asia and you have been
traveling through Bali for a week or so, you have had your share of
But if you still want to stick to the Asian cuisine, surprisingly the bakery has a large selection of Indonesian food such as Nasi Goreng, Fried Noodle, Chicken Curry and Ayam Bumbu Bali too (Chicken cooked in Balinese herbs).
then that, they have rich salads, pastas and other western dishes that
really sound good. If my eyes hadn't fallen on the delicious looking
bread behind the counter, I would definitely have tried the spaghetti
with spicy chicken & spinach.
And what about Supreme Chicken Ecosse (chicken stuffed with camembert cheese and leek), Japanese Beef Hamburger Steak or Crab Meat Cream Croquette...?
Have you ever heard of a bakery serving all this kind of dishes?
In Bali almost anything is possible I guess....:-)
Anyway, when I was there together with my girlfriend we soon skipped the main dishes section and flipped to the page with the sandwiches.
The sandwiches sounded like the ones back home. After living in Indonesia for a while we still haven't got used to the structure of 'Indonesian bread' which is more like cake than bread with a crunchy crust.
But here the Kakiang Ubud Bakery has French baguettes with egg, fried tofu, ham & cheese, parma ham with papaya and rucola salad or smoked salmon & cream cheese.
If you rather have a bagel they have enough choice of spreads and fillings such as the ones above, but also with roasted vegetable & humus, avocado shrimp or a triple cheese omelet.
Other types of omelets are also served on sliced bread; white or multi-grain. And not to forget, they have the chicken sandwich and the triple deck club sandwich which is served in every genuine sandwich shop.
My girlfriend couldn't resist the roasted vegetables and humus. Instead on a bagel the staff was also happy to serve it on a baguette. I decided to go for the Californian vegetables on multi grain bread.
It was richly filled and after one sandwich I was more than satisfied.
Which was a bit of a shame because when I glanced over my shoulder I saw their display of cakes. Strawberry cake, cheese cake, chocolate cake, triple chocolate cake and so much more...
Perfect with a nice cup of coffee prepared with their espresso machine or with a cup tea from their Japanese tea selection.
I guess we have no choice... but to come back soon.
Dec 2009: we did come back and tried their cheese cake and Mocha (green tea) frappacino. Definitely worth a return visit!
