The concept of Hujan Locale is an idea close to our heart as we have been developing our relationships with local farmers utilizing their produce in our restaurants over the past three years. In honoring these relationships Hujan Ubud came at the perfect time in the perfect location to launch this next exciting venture.
The name Hujan was chosen to portray what the rains represent: Good fortune, prosperity and harvest.
The space casually reflects a cool tropical yet rural setting and an old world Asian charm. A distinct Old French Vietnam charm fills the interior, provincial and yet slightly urbanized. The original façade has been stripped back to reveal a softened concrete color with beautiful wooden shutters- reminiscent of traditional French town housing drenched by the Asian sun.
M.C. Escher “Palm” is a centerpiece whilst the commissioning of a work “morning rain” by renowned Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro commands attention. The purity of style in this image -the storm passing through palms compliments both the namesake and concept of the restaurant.
The interior has a somewhat cool organic popped up with tropical art and foliage. Cool green greys reflect a pared down elegance. The palette of natural wash out woods and taupe tone rattan chairs are spiked up pomegranates colors - ginger flowers give tropical vibe and citrus enliven the space.
The large mirror with studded brass pins and distressed on the edges flanks the entire wall.
Hujan serves a combination of dishes found in the traditional kitchens of South East Asia, including adiverse range of Indonesian dishes originating from the westernmost islands and stretching to the east. Chef Will Meyrick travels across the regions to learn the culinary culture and get to know the people. He brings home timeless recipes and the stories behind them.
The Hujan Locale concept is to present fresh ideas, consistently creating everything in house wherever possible.
