    Welcome to our first edition of Lets eat! Magazine for 2014.

    The start of a new year symbolises renewal

    and a fresh start, so it seems a fitting time for me to share a few words with our readers.

    As the dining scene grows and evolves,

    so too does Lets eat! Magazine and we have come along way over the last four years. In

    December we sadly said goodbye to Hendra

    Octaviano, and welcomed Ayu Sawitri Hapsari

    to the position as Editor. I am also excited to

    reveal other exciting news from the Khrisna

    Group, including the expanding business

    branch in Selaparang Airport, Mataram by PT.

    KMSI (Khrisna Multi Sarana Indonesia,) which is

    committed to providing timely, rapid, accurate

    & innovative Domestic Cargo Warehousing

    and Regulated Agent-based Airline services,

    as well as regulating flight safety, and customer satisfaction services. not only that, our attempt

    to provide the best service in the travel industry

    is supported by one of our new brands, called

    CIP (Commercial Important Person) Lounge,

    recently launched by The Bali Concierge. The

    CIP Lounge is located in the northwest section

    of Bali International Airport and grants a

    unique, exclusive experience with sophisticated

    facilities, hassle-free custom services and a laid

    back atmosphere.

    I am delighted to have the best team, not

    only at Lets eat! Magazine, but also in our other businesses within the Khrisna Group. Believe me

    there are many exciting things to come in 2014,

    including enticing themes for Lets eat!, as well as the continued development of Sarana and

    The Bali Concierge to provide the best travel

    experiences on the Island of the Gods, Bali.

    On behalf of myself and all the team at Lets eat! Magazine and Khrisna Group, I would like to wish all our readers a happy and prosperous

    new year, and of course, lots of memorable

    dining and travelling experiences.


    Bon Apetit

    A well seasoned travel writer, Alison spent years exploring the world before arriving in Bali, where she quickly succumbed to the islands exotic charms. Trading her nomadic journeys for adventures of a culinary kind, she happily spends her time writing about restaurants and working on her first novel.

    Menur shares her time between Manado and Bali and admits she still hasnt had the guts to try Manadonese Paniki a dish made from bats, but she promises to write about it when she has. When in Bali, she loves trying new restaurants with friends, and particularly enjoys Vietnamese and Indian food, Connect with her @menurastuti

    Eve says her familys motto has always been live to eat rather than eat to live. Aside from eating, she also loves to write, travel, design, read and cook (although, admittedly that also involves eating.) Occasionally, you can find her bragging about where she eats and travels in her tweets @evetedja

    Dewi has been working as an independent writer since 2005, and her book Dances of Bali has sold more than 2000 copies. Aside from writing she is also passionate about diving, photography (both land and underwater,) and actively volunteers for several non-profit organisations that are engaged in conservation work.

    restaurants/retail spaces in Jakarta, VIN+ Wine & Beyond has now arrived in Bali with more than 250
