|Nasi Babi Guling from some roadside shack frequented by locals. 10,000Rp worth of crackling goodness!|
This time in 2013, the food in Bali really blew me away! I truly did not expect to find quality European cuisine at such valuable prices. For this trip, HH wanted to wake up to see the paddy fields. Therefore, we stayed at Ubud the entire time, and these are restaurants entirely in Ubud.
I believe a picture says more than words, so get ready for some food porn!
1. Il Giardino (Italian)
|Very comfortable setting inside a villa/bungalow with its own pond|
|Candlelight dinner where the leftover candle is pushed into the bottle every night|
|Complimentary bread sticks with dip - very good one at that!|
This restaurant is located inside a bungalow which makes you feel right at home. Open only from Tuesdays to Saturdays, they specialize in wood fire pizza and pastas. This is what 3 persons ordered:
|Every Italian must get their basics right with a good Bolognese. Our favourite for the night actually|
|Saffron Tagliatelle, Grilled Salmon Steak, Saffron Cream - another crowd favourite|
|Pumpkin Ravioli, Burnt Butter, Almonds, Sage - very nice if we weren't that full already|
|What? Pizza also? Done just right with anchovies instead of "Ikan Bilis"|
Opens Tue-Sat only!

2. Warung Schnitzel (German)
|They have many servers here, all of them would come to ask you how your meal was|
|My decadent schnitzel that may not look as good as it tasted|
|BBQ chicken was very tender too|
|Sorry? This is green curry chicken? Sure doesn't look like it but it tasted FABULOUS!!|
|Complimentary appetizers - again crunchy goodness. Too much fat for one night|
|Their show stopper - Apple Cinnamon Pudding. So sweet that I felt like it gave me diabetes|
Jalan Sriwedari 2

Bali is a place where you will find the most concentration of yoga practitioner (yogese or wannabes?) and green loving people. And they try to eat in the most healthy manner possible, where foods aren't cooked past certain temperatures or best enjoyed RAW (Real And Wholesome). We chanced on this restaurant, and frequented it 2 times.
|Vegetarian green curry with organic vegetables and brown rice|
|Really good Indian curry Chapati set!|
|Freshly made nachos|
|Keylime pie - though sour, but highly addictive|
