My choice for lunch today was Nomad on Jl. Raya Ubud. Why you might ask, am I continually taking my guests to western restaurants. There are a few reasons, which include, having a mixed group (men, woman, kid), the kid may not like Indonesian food, but will like a smoothie, Ubud has great food and elsewhere on the island, they may have to settle for simpler fare. Nomad is located on the same side of the road as Cafe Moka, they are one block apart. Seating in open air, inside and the staff are very nice. Our group ordered a burger, shrimp salad, chicken satay, myself ordering a tuna steak.
We were all impressed and Toby said he was surprised I called this a mid-range place, as back in the US it would be fine-dining. My tuna steak was presented in a fancy way and was delicious, sitting atop a giant potato cake with stir fried vegetables.
