THE BALI RESTAURANT GUIDE TO KUTA(incl. Tuban, Legian, Seminyak, Kerobokan,etc) SATE BALI, Jalan Laksmana 22A (the extension of the Oberoi Road) nearly opposite the SAMAYA Resort. The menu in this up-market Warung lists not only all kinds of Sate (small charcoal-grilled skewers with chicken, beef, pork and minced seafood) but many Balinese specialties such as Ayan Pelalah (shredded chicken with chilli and lime juice), Tum Bebek (minced duck steamed in banana leafs), Sambal Udang (prawns with chilli), and Ayam Betutu (seasoned chicken cooked in leaves underground). Or order the Balinese Rijsttafel consisting of nine meat, seafood and vegetable dishes served together with three different kinds of rice. A dinner for two will be about 200,000 to 250,000 Rupiah without drinks. Budget travelers, are WARUNG BATAVIA, Jalan Kerobokan, and WARUNG MURAH, Jalan Double Six near the beach which both offer great local food at rock- bottom prices. If you feel like having a delicious and spicy Soup Buntut (oxtail soup, the modern spelling) around midnight or later, there is no better place than WARUNG BAKU DAPA in the middle of Balis most popular night clubs and next door to SANTA FE in Jalan Double Six. MADES WARUNG on Jalan Pantai in central Kuta near the Bemo Corner has been an institution in Kuta since the early 70s. This has been THE place to see and be seen for nearly 30 years. In the early days, MADES was the only after-hours place in Kuta: they kept selling toilet paper, mosquito curls, snack food and drinks until 8:00 p.m. when everybody else closed around 7:00 p.m. Today you con choose from
THE BALI RESTAURANT GUIDE TOJIMBARAN BEACH The best place for fresh seafood is still Jimbaran Beach with its rows of open restaurants right on the sandy beach near the Bali Inter-Continental Resort and between the Keraton Hotel and the airport. The number of eateries is fast increasing, but the original six restaurants on the airport side of the Keraton Hotel (LIA is our favorite) are still the most reasonably priced, and they serve the same delicious food. All kinds of fresh fish, squid, crabs, prawns, and lobsters are prepared on the open grill (burning coconut husks instead of charcoal) with exotic herbs and spices. A large grilled snapper with a seafood soup, vegetables, salad, rice, potatoes, several sauces, and different sambals costs for instance at LIAs around 50,000 Rupiah per kilo; one kilo of grilled prawns is about 90,000 Rupiah and Jumbo size prawns 160,000 Rupiah, lobster (actually crayfish) 250,000 Rupiah per kilo, and a large bottle of beer is 12,500 Rupiah. Not extremely cheap any more but still good value for money, and a great place to watch Balis famous sunsets! MADES WARUNG in Seminyak/Basangkasa on the way to the Oberoi Hotel
THE BALI RESTAURANT GUIDE TOUBUD CAFE LOTUS has been an institution for many years. Located in the center of Ubud between the main street and a large, beautiful lotus pond in front of a temple (designed by the famous artist I Gusti Nyoman Lempad) this pleasant open-air restaurant serves a variety of Italian pasta dishes, some Asian and local specialties such as the Balinese duck Bebek Betutu, and a good choice of cakes and fruit juices. Although the prices here are quite steep for Ubud standards, CAFE LOTUS is busy the whole day. Nearly across the road is CASA LUNA offering a number of Balinese and Mediterranean dishes which look very interesting on the menu but can be a bit disappointing, and a branch of the well- known RYOSHI serving good Sushi, Sashimi and Tempura until midnight at rather low prices. MURNIS WARUNG, located next to the Campuan bridge, is another of Ubuds institutions. Built on several levels between the road and the river, this is an excellent place to try the Bebek Betutu (order one day in advance to be sure) and other local specialties. The more elegant BRIDGE CAFE cascades also down over several levels – right opposite on the other side of the river – and offers creative Pacific Rim cuisine i.e. tasty culinary creations with influences from Thailand, India, China and Japan as well as local specialties, salads and vegetarian dishes. Try the Szechuan Pancakes filled with deep fried duck, the Thai Chicken Pizza, or the Chilly Prawns. Very pleasant atmosphere and good service. For many years rather popular is DIRTY DUCK or BEBEK BENGIL in Padang Tegal about one kilometer south of Ubuds main street. Forget their special "Crispy Duck" which is very dry and sometimes rather tough. Their range of other Indonesian and Western dishes, however, is quite tasty, the garden setting very pleasant, and the live background music in the evenings creates a nearly magic atmosphere. Another of Ubud favorites is ARYS WARUNG, a stylish side-walk bistro in the center of town with creative oriental/international cuisine and a choice of interesting vegetarian dishes. The Tasting Menu for lunch includes four dishes for 150,000 or 190,000 Rupiah with one glass of wine, the Dinner Tasting Menu six dishes for 240,000 or 280,000 Rupiah with two glasses of wine, always plus tax & service. Expect delicacies such as Lobster Wonton, Tuna Parfait with caviar and Wasabi cream, Seared Sea Scallops, Sauted Green Pepercorn Pate with green papaya salad, Carpaccio of Venison, Steamed Snapper with red chilli butter, Jumbo River Prawns
