Eating at Kali Manik, north Bali

Published by under Food

Crispy fried sardines served with garlic butter, pommes au beurre and tomato salad with balsamic vinaigrette. 68,000 rupiah.

Kali Manik is a garden-set, beachside eco-resort in the true sense of the word, on the black sands of Bali’s northern reaches, about an hour’s drive east of Pemuteran and six kilometres west of Seririt.
