Eating in Bali

Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant

This restaurant was recommended to me by one of my colleagues as it is famous for its crispy duck (otherwise known as “dirty duck”) and is also located next to some rice fields.

Looking at their website, it seems that the restaurant is also popular with celebrities, government officials & foreign dignitaries.

There was a little koi pool at the entrance to the restaurant.

Views from the dining area:


Strangely, mango juice was also unavailable at this restaurant although it was on the menu. The waitress explained that this was because it wasn’t the season for mangoes. Hmm…. anyway, strawberry juice was available so I ordered that and it was very refreshing especially on such a warm day!!

…and now for the food…
Deep-Fried Crispy Duck – When this was served, it didn’t look appetising but the moment you take a bite of the duck, you’ll fall in love with it!! It wasn’t oily at all, had a nice crisp to it and was very well marinated with multiple spices. Kind of reminded me of how KFC used to taste in its early days!

Sate Campur – This comprised of beef, chicken and pork sate (2 sticks of each type). The pork sate was extremely tough and dry so I didn’t enjoy it. The sate gravy also could have been better.

The only interesting thing about this dish was that it was served on a mini ceramic grill filled with charcoal bits which were still burning.

Made’s Warung at Seminyak

This restaurant was recommended by some friends and I had also noticed that it’s also recommended by several travel guide books.

Stepped into the compound of Made’s Warung and found that it housed a number of specialty shops from handicrafts to chocolates.

At first I was wondering where the restaurant was, as there were tables and chairs placed outside the shops with no sign of the restaurant or the service staff. It wasn’t until we walked further in then we saw the bar and restaurant counter.

There were many Japanese students and their parents and teachers and it looked like they were preparing for a performance of sorts.

Wasn’t particularly hungry after a heavy breakfast earlier so I didn’t order much to try here.
Ordered the gado-gado and the spicey pork sate and they were really good!!

The sate didn’t come with any sauce but it was well-marinated and the pork was very tender. Nice!!

In addition, the gado-gado tasted better than the versions we’ve had in Singapore!

Washed it down with some honey melon juice – my 3rd choice after finding out that both mango and strawberry juices weren’t available that day.
Ohh…the ice lemon tea was good too!

Will definitely go back to try other dishes if I go back to Bali again!
