D’Roemah (The house) is a restaurant in Umalas, Bali serving homemade Indonesian food. The owner is Indonesian chef famous in The Netherlands, Lonny Gerungan. Born in Denpasar, Bali from a hotel chef father, Gerungan immigrated to The Netherlands when he was young at 21 years old. Later on he started his own restaurant in Amsterdam. Meanwhile he has become famous as a singer and a tv chef as well. Last year he opened D’Roemah in Bali.
Dining at this eatery feels like you visit Lonny’s home. The main building is a wooden Joglo, Javanese traditional wooden house. The roof is typical for a Joglo.
I went for a lunch at D’Roemah on Sunday.Each Sunday from 12.00 – 05.00 pm there is Pasar Senang (Happy Market). The staff serves steamed white of yellow rice with the dishes like this.
There is a buffet of traditional sweet cakes and savory delicacies. Most of the sweet cakes are vegan made of rice flour, coconut milk and palm sugar.
This is a portion of sate.
And some drinks, Mango juice.
Es teler (young coconut, avocado, jack fruit, syrup topped with crushed ice).
My verdict about the food; the sweet cakes were delicious as the rice dishes. The sate didn’t wow me. My guess is perhaps as most guests are Dutch, the Sate taste is somewhat adjusted. Overall, D’Roemah offers a pleasant dining experience; breezy and green lush place, beautifully decorated, accommodating and courteous staff and last but not least, friendly entertaining owner.
