But, greater importantly, the chef selected to develop landscaping around his dessert and liquids living room to house dozens of recent herbs and fruit timber––like pandan, lemongrass, and galangal––the local flavors that have come to be Room 4 Dessert’s guiding philosophy. Goldfarb first of all opened Room 4 Dessert fourteen years ago in New York City. But, after a fall-out with business companions, he transplanted his goodies-centered tasting menu idea to Ubud in primary Bali. And at the same time as the chef––whose resume counts time spent at Spain’s visionary, modernist eating place elBulli, beyond positions along.
