Sunday Brunch in relaxed sophistication at beachfront restaurant- serving exquisite modern French cuisine
October 6th, 2013
One of three restaurants within the spectacular beachfront edifice that is home to the renowned Potato Head Beach Club on Bali’s ultra-popular Seminyak Beach, Tapping Shoes delivers an exquisite modern French culinary experience in an elegant upstairs dining room overlooking the Indian Ocean. Exuding an air of nonchalant sophistication, an attribute which the team behind Potato Head have artfully mastered, Tapping Shoes admirably elevates resort beachfront dining- attracting a discerning clientele of gourmet travelers with both its consummate gastronomy, and its wonderful setting.
Heading up the kitchen at Tapping Shoes, Japanese-born Chef Hiraku Take has crafted a polished modern French cuisine, which, while solidly grounded in classical French cooking technique- finely honed from his more than twenty years experience in Michelin-starred French restaurants in both France and Japan- also showcases his flair for contemporary creativity and presentation. Working with carefully selected fresh local produce, Chef Take cooks an impressive repertoire of dishes, with an A La Carte dinner menu served Tuesday to Saturdays, and a sublimely indulgent Sunday Brunch. With a limited number of tables in the intimately proportioned dining room, bookings are recommended.
