(3/14/2012)

A word to the wise. When confronted by someone generally acknowledged as a talented young Turk of the culinary world in a discussion of “what should I order tonight?” the best thing to order is perhaps “nothing.”

This is especially the case when the kitchen genius in question is Jusman So, the Chef de Cuisine at Dava – the fine dining venue at the AYANA Resort and Spa Bali.

Before moving to Bali, Jusman So had achieved singularity as one of Singapore's most acclaimed chefs. His 40-seat fine dining restaurant, Sage, was nominated “Best New Restaurant” at the World Gourmet Summit 2008, the same year he won “Best Rising Chef” by Singapore Tatler magazine, and named to the prestigious Miele List in 2010.

Since his move to paradise and assuming the reins at Dava, Jusman has introduced new menus with modern French flairs and popular signature dishes enhanced by local flavors and the best available ingredients.

But, seriously, our earnest recommendation remains to never bother ordering anything when Jusman joins you at your tableside for a pre-dinner discussion.

To this end, Jusman So and Dava have recently launched what they are calling “Four-Course Surprise Menus.”

The experience begins with a personal discussion with Jusman of broad food preferences, specific disliked foods, dietary restrictions and food allergies. This information in hand and the direct opportunity to meet his diners over a “foodie chat”  allows Jusman to  then disappear to the kitchen to prepare a customized meal, based on the Chef's spontaneous inspiration and the best ingredients uncovered at local markets and from establish suppliers that morning.

The four-courses that soon arrive at your table are both delightful and surprising, revealed with subdued fanfare by well-trained service staff explaining the ingredients and their preparation method.

"We are receiving very positive feedback from guests who enjoy the anticipation and fun of a 'Surprise Menu' and who are happy to put complete faith in the chef and my choices," said Jusman.  "I personally enjoy it too, as it allows me to be more spontaneous and creative on a daily basis, using ingredients that are often harder to find and therefore may not be on the main menu. For example, certain types of seafood may not be available every day, but when they are, I'm able to use them for this new menu to offer guests something different and extra special."

Offered alongside Dava's regular a la carte and nightly degustation menus, the Four-Course Surprise Menu is also attractively priced at Rp 450,000++ per person (US$60.50).

Prepared to be most pleasantly surprised.
