River Cafe's Conscious Cuisine
Wholesome food at it's finest, The River Café is all about helping you maintain a complete balance of wellness whilst at Maya Ubud.
As we have evolved things have become more and more refined. The natural processes of storage and cooking have been replaced with chemicals, microwaves and instant food options. At the River Café try to use the natural elements in food to assist the body in its day to day processes without placing unnecessary strain on it.
We use fresh organic vegetables and herbs from the hills of Bedugul. We are proud supporters of the Slow Food movement and follow its principles including using sustainable produce and only when in season.
Rather than refined white flour we offer wheat alternatives such as quinoa, buckwheat and coconut flour. Instead of breads to start your meal we offer crudite with tahini.
We have a full selection of vegetarian, gluten free along with ‘conscious cuisine’ options. Clean, fresh, natural and crisp. Textures and ingredients are balanced to nourish the body, mind and soul.
