Cuca is proud to announce that they have made it into the TripAdvisor Top Ten Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2017 for the whole of Asia and hit the #2 spot for the best restaurant in Indonesia.
For Cuca this recognition has been the culmination of years of hard work and over 2000 reviews logged on their TripAdvisor page from foodies that have discovered the inspired, unique and peerless culinary creations from chef owner Kevin Cherkas and his highly talented team.
Cuca threw open their doors for the first time back in 2013 and quietly set about redefining a new wave of modernist cuisine in Bali. At a time when most other restaurateurs on the island were focused on delivering over-the-top fine dining experiences using only the finest imported produce, Kevin’s team completely rewrote the rule book utilising exclusively the best local produce from Indonesia and challenging guests to redefine their expectations of what cutting edge dining on the island could actually be.
Kevin had already amassed an impressive resume by the time Cuca was birthed including stints at the three Michelin starred Arzak, La Broche, El Bulli, a tenure with Daniel Boulud in NYC, Lafite in Kuala Lumpur and most recently having helmed the kitchen at the revered BLU in Shangri-La Singapore, but nobody could have predicted the fanfare that Cuca would receive from internationally renowned tastemakers soon after the restaurant officially opened.
Of course the big challenge with any venture, especially in the hospitality industry, is to keep the fresh ideas coming and to embrace progression. The key to Cuca’s ongoing success has undoubtedly been travel. The inspiration of travel has continually been reflected in the development of the menu at Cuca, especially in the most recent update including a wide range of re-interpreted classics drawing inspiration from around the world and bringing it home to Asia. The globetrotting creative team at Cuca has recently represented Indonesia at Madrid Fusion in Manila as well as staging countless pop up ‘Swig & Nibble’ events from the city skylines of Jakarta and Singapore to the wineries of Melbourne, Margaret River and most recently further afield to South America.
It’s not all about change and progression at Cuca though.
Whether it’s a taste of the future or a blast from the past, Cuca continues to challenge and delight diners from all over the world. Take a trip into a one-of-a-kind dining experience and see for yourself why Cuca is ranked in the top ten restaurants in Asia.
