Zest is all about empowering Bali through food. With our â??powered by plantsâ?? motto, weâ??re here to add flavors to the lives of our guests by cooking simple and delicious combinations of locally grown whole food and plant-based cuisine. The menu consists mostly of locally grown plants in Bali with a focus on the Balinese heritage of roots, shoots and fruits - reducing the carbon footprint of imported products used in the majority of the food industry.
Our inventive menu is exclusively designed by Chef Simon Jongenotter, the creator of www.newearthcooking.com. He also established over a 100 acre of Food Forest in Bali that partly supplies Zest. We do not use flour. Not even rice flour. No refined sugar. No bad oils like processed palm oil. Not meat or dairy or eggs or any animal products. Our Recipes involve Moringa from Tabanan, Soursop from Tejakula and Cassava that grows in any Balinese backyard.
Beyond food, we wish to bring people together. We want to offer a simple and real experience that connects people to Baliâ??s magical flavors. We also hope to reconnect people with Nature and bring them joy and happiness through our carefully curated meals. Oh, and we love good music. Come and play!
