If you visit Komaneka at Tanggayuda, you will find a place called Tamarind Corner, named for an old tamarind tree that was growing there even before the resort was built. Here, you can chill out while enjoying the beautiful view of the green valley spread out before you. And there is a small bar where you can get fresh juice or a tasty cocktail of your choosing.
Here is some information about tangy fresh tamarind fruit:
On this earth, there is only a single species of tamarind. Tamarindus indica, which originates in tropical Africa, is a leguminous tree belonging to the family Fabaceae. It has evergreen leaflets and can grow up to 18 meters high.
The tree produces fruit in pods. Each pod contains 4-6 pulps which are edible. The taste is best described as sweet-sour, and it is high in tartaric acid. The pulp becomes sweeter as it ripens.
Tamarind is widely used in cuisines around the world. It can be made into jam or candy, mixed into juice, and found in desserts and also in some refreshing drinks. In Bali, tamarind is essential for the fresh fruit salad called rujak, served with a special sauce of tamarind, palm sugar, shrimp paste, and chili. Tamarind is also said to be good for the digestion.
On your visit to Komaneka at Tanggayuda, you may find yourself by our refreshing tamarind tree. If you are lucky, a ripened pod may fall on you. You can crack open the pod and eat the fresh pulp— and taste the rich, tart sweetness of perfectly ripened natural tamarind.
