Ever since its opening, The Apurva Kempinski Bali has delivered the finest hospitality experience, be it as a getaway destination, or for an unforgettable culinary journey. Some of the outstanding restaurants within the majestic resort that have discerning diners coming back for more are Izakaya by OKU, as well as Koral Restaurant with its impressive aquarium dining experience.
One of the newer additions to the outstanding culinary repertoire is Bai Yun. First and foremost, Bai Yun is a hot pot restaurant, showcasing the convivial dining concept that originated in China before it became popular in Southeast Asia. The name means white cloud in Mandarin Chinese, inspired by the white cloud-like steam generated from the hot pot.
Long-time fans of hot pot know that the key is in the choice of broth, a nourishing soup that will define the rest of the journey. The highly skilled culinary team at Bai Yun has prepared a selection of signature soup bases to choose from, including the comforting chicken herbal, the luscious pork ribs, while there is also an excellent vegetarian option. You can even choose more than one broth and savour the combination of flavours to be enjoyed with the chef’s selection of fresh meats or locally grown organic vegetables.
Now, in addition to being the hot pot haven that Bai Yun is, the restaurant offers a lavish dim sum experience as well. Cleverly named “Dim Sum and More”, the offer invites diners to an all-you-can-eat dim sum lunch that comprises up to 31 kinds of dim sum daily, from 12 noon to 3pm. The lunch starts with 15 varieties of dim sum served at the table that you can choose from before you decide on what you want to order next.
All-time favourites like hakaw and shumai are available, in addition to premium dim sum, like wagyu spring roll and more. Dim sum enthusiasts will be happy to find an extensive array, from steamed and fried, to sweet dim sum. Further, Bai Yun also serves hearty dishes like porridge, crab soup and vegetable dishes.
Helmed by the award-winning Chef Ho Weng Kit, Bai Yun does not only serve tasty regional comfort food but also an unrivalled ambience that is elegant and welcoming. The restaurant can accommodate up to 150 people, making it an ideal venue for various meal times. A romantic dinner with a loved one, a feast with the family, or any celebration with friends or colleagues, the restaurant provides an authentic dining experience to remember. Don’t forget to try the traditional Chinese libation, baiju, to complete the journey.
