Our Business

Pengalaman Rasa means
'the flavor experience' in Bahasa Indonesia.

We bring you not only exciting flavours from North Bali, but also the intriguing experiences
that synthesized them.

We are more than a food business,

we are advocates of mindful consumption.



Ayu Gayatri Kresna

As a Northern Balinese native, Ayu's cooking training began as a child in her family's kitchen - learning the arts of traditional cooking while honing her senses in refining the taste, texture, and appearance of numerous authentic dishes.

Combining family recipes passed down through generations with lovingly selected high quality local produces, Ayu is passionate about preserving Northern Balinese cuisine and introducing it to the world.
