Full Circle, a Concept by Expat. Roasters proffers an eclectic all-day menu of modern Australian plates alongside speciality coffee and custom cocktails
Since opening in Jalan Petitenget last year, Expat. Roasters’ sleek brew bar has become the destination of choice for coffee-curious locals and international visitors alike. The café-cum-training-facility is the passion project of Australian barista champion Shae Macnamara, an advocate for collaborating with responsible Indonesian growers. Shae carries this spirit for promoting what’s local to Expat’s latest venture, Full Circle.
Situated on Ubud’s Jalan Jatayu, a quiet street still surrounded by working rice fields, the 120-seat eatery dishes up globally-inspired brunch signatures showcasing Bali’s seasonal best. Michelin-trained chef Gloria Susindra—the founder of Jakarta’s Mother Monster—is the creative driving force behind Full Circle’s culinary offerings.
A mélange of modern classics and novel newcomers, the all-day menu includes Smashed Avo with lime, nuts, seeds, feta and confit cherry tomatoes, Balinese Spice-Rolled Porchetta with fried eggs, peas and baby potatoes, and Bali Jackfruit with local spices, couscous, avocado, black beans, charred corn and coriander.”
Both grazers and growing appetites are catered for with fruit-loaded smoothie bowls, vegan-friendly servings (like the Pumpkin, Three Ways) and hearty repasts, like the Smashed Beef Burger with mozzarella, onion rings, bacon chilli jam and fries.
Naturally, Expat. Roasters’ expertly made coffee plays an important part in the Full Circle experience. Premium-quality Bali beans are be offered alongside a nomadic collection of rare single-origin varieties, all showcased via the central espresso bar. Furnished with stools to watch the the baristas in action or learn about the latest brewing techniques, the interactive bar is the beating heart of the café.
For those who would prefer something stronger, an intimate 16-seat bar will soon open just above the main space. Complementing a selection of local and imported beers and wines, the bar’s bespoke cocktail creations—mixed to each guest’s personal preference—will take centre stage, spotlighting Bali’s native fruits and spices.
