Press Release

Going Local in Ubud!

Brand new and already making a splash, Localista is the place to get great espresso coffee and a mouth-watering selection of cupcakes. If cappuccino isn’t your thing, there is a selection of special teas, juices and lassies, quiches and croissants, and legendary Gaya gelato.

Located just off the main road of Ubud, the café connects to the Rio Helmi Photo Gallery. The brainchild of photographer Rio Helmi and his film-maker daughter Soma, Localista is definitely the new kid to watch on this block.

As you might guess from its name, the motto for this cute little café is, well, “Go Local”. A lot of emphasis is put on sourcing and using as much local product as possible. Says Rio: “It not only makes sense in terms of the environment, it even tastes better!”

The café already has a name for its cupcakes: one visiting celebrity walked off with a whole box of special gluten free cupcakes after trying them!

Rudolf Dethu

Music journalist, writer, radio DJ, socio-political activist, creative industry leader, and a qualified librarian, Rudolf Dethu is heavily under the influence of the punk rock philosophy. Often tagged as this country’s version of Malcolm McLaren—or as Rolling Stone Indonesia put it ‘the grand master of music propaganda’—a name based on his successes when managing Bali’s two favourite bands, Superman Is Dead and Navicula, both who have become two of the nation’s biggest rock bands.

Berikut adalah tulisan tentang Men Tempeh yang tadinya hendak saya sertakan di Bali A to Z part 3. Cuman karena projek tulisan itu (sudah mulai ditulis sejak pertengahan 2007) masih tertunda hingga detik ini, biar gak basi, salah satu topik bahasannya, Men Tempeh, tak share aja dah. Mind you, saat tulisan ini dibuat, Men Tempeh sedang dalam transisi dari sekadar "warung makan" (pretty much uncivilized) naik pangkat menjadi "restoran" (civilized, most likely). Sekarang sih Men Tempeh sudah lumayan flashy (should I say, tackily flashy? Ada gak bahasa Inggris seperti itu? Hiks). Yeah, it's still a bit tacky. Tapi persetanlah, yang penting makanannya---meniru gaya Enny Arrow---enaakhsss...
