Simply Social brings a delicious, nutritious menu to Ubud’s busy main street in a venue that exudes modern tropical chic.
Simply Social, a casual, yet stylish, eatery and bar unveiled a fun, relaxing vibe and some delicious food aimed at both omnivores and vegetarians when it opened in mid-November. Strategically located just a short stroll from Ubud Market and the palace on Jalan Raya Ubud, it is perfect for shoppers looking to escape from the heat, as well as anyone looking for a high-quality meal, fresh flavours and fun drinks.
Open for breakfast from 7.30am and not closing until 11pm, Simply Social is a comfortable place to hang out with friends, as well as to grab a drink and take advantage of the Wi-Fi to catch up on some work. The spacious venue is decorated in light woods, with warm brick walls and a pale tile floor, while soft pink, pale green, as well as orchids and trailing greenery, add some warmth.
The menu comprises dishes prepared using the highest-quality, fresh ingredients, crafted to highlight the natural flavours. Breakfast items include house-made pastries and hot and cold dishes to tempt the palate, such as whipped tropical yogurt with fresh and purée fruits, honey and ginger granola topping, as well as smashed avocado, Garden on a Plate and breakfast sausage roll. Wholesome fruit and vegetable smoothies, a selection of teas and some wicked coffees ensure that your taste buds will keep you coming back to Simply Social for your start to the day again and again.
The lunch and dinner selection features tempting soups, salads and more, encompassing local, Asian and western dishes, including the ever-popular hot-smoked pork belly. Others not to miss are the signature Social Style Tacos with either meat or vegetarian fillings, braised lamb and mint pie, and, for big appetites, the 40-day dry-aged beef rib eye with red wine beef jus, confit onion and potato purée.
Of course, the desserts are just as tempting, whether at the end of your meal, or alongside a cup of tea or coffee as you take a revitalising break. Be sure to order one of the house special ice teas – we won’t spoil the surprise, but it’s fun.
As you would expect with all the careful consideration that has gone into Simply Social, the drinks also hit the spot. Carefully crafted cocktails and mocktails will see your thirst quenched into the night, with premium liquors, house-made bitters, fresh juices and a healthy dose of creative imagination. Try the butterfly pea flower-infused tequila with coconut liqueur, fresh pineapple and orange syrup in the Above the Cloud cocktail for a tropical treat on a sultry evening.
Whatever time of day, with fresh flavours from around the world, expect a sensational journey of taste at Simply Social.
