Marc took me to some of his previously loved restaurants and we also found some new ones to love together. Some of the best were:
Gorgonzola: With great pizzas and enack ( tasty) Italian food how could we go wrong? The setting is lush and low with comfortable coaches and standard tables as well. The owner Gibson is a really gracious host and with live entertainment of Saturday night, it’s easy to stick around for one more daiquiri or Bahama Mama.
Puti Intan is a halal place just down the street from Nirmala. Most every time we come, Dani is behind the counter cooking something or serving guests. The food there was awesome, if a tad spicy.
The most romantic place we went was Jimbaran Beach @ sunset. The seafood restaurants line the beach and tables stretch halfway or more to the surf. Watch the sun go down before ordering.The prawns are to die for, and the red snapper, octopus and clams are all pretty good as well. Wash it all down with some Bintang besars, and it’s all good.
We also tried GaRaSe many times for breakfast, lunch and occasionally dinner. Breakfasts were funny. I don’t think we ever got our toast with the meal. It always came when you’ve just finished the eggs and was usually only “warmed”.
We went to the Kopi Pot in Kuta a couple of times. Their tea is awesome. Nice when you can score a bale too.
Also went to Mama’s; a German Restaurant in Kuta that Marc remembers from ten years ago. They are famous for their ham hocks. Their pork scalopine wasn’t bad either.
Right, so before I go, a little menu fun. Sometimes they try so hard…
And, one ettiquete lesson for folks using Western bathrooms.
Last one for Bali is the paragliding post. Stay tuned for updates!
