Seminyak’s Mano

Published by under Food,Seminyak

I’ll be honest with you: the first time Mr Travelfish and I arrived in Bali on a weekend trip from Jakarta we were exceedingly underwhelmed by the beach along Seminyak, which was strewn with debris and not quite the colour of tropical beaches in the brochures. Sure, it’s volcanic sand, not dirt, but still… And … read the full post

Sardine in Bali

Published by under Food,Seminyak

It’s not often you return to a restaurant in Bali to find it’s truly doing better than it was before; too often you have a lovely night out, return six months later and find that the fickle clientele has moved on, seduced by something shinier and trendier that has opened down the road. So it … read the full post

Ice cream in Sanur

Published by under Food,Sanur

Technically, even though it’s always pretty hot in Bali, it’s summer time now — so you have an even better excuse to indulge in a scoop of ice cream or three while you’re here. Yes it’s not hardy travel, this eating ice cream business, I’ll grant you that. Still, ice cream. Ice. Cream. Sanur now … read the full post

Amid the paddy: Ubud’s Sari Organic

Published by under Food,Ubud

This is the tale of a little walk, up a hill off Ubud’s main street, and through relatively flat, slightly terraced rice paddy, now dotted with ever-more concrete villas and bungalows. It’s a 15-minute walk, or about 800 metres, a sign at the turn off along Subak Sok Wayah tells visitors, to get to a … read the full post

Clear Cafe Ubud

Published by under Food,Ubud

If you like your food healthy and imaginative — even somewhat worshipful — make a beeline to stunning Clear Cafe when you’re in Ubud. The spot, tucked away on Jalan Hanoman so within walking distance of most guesthouses in Ubud’s central area, has been open a year or two now, and it’s surely testament to … read the full post

Japanese food in Sanur: Part 1

Published by under Food,Sanur

Japanese cuisine is fairly easy to find in Bali, and Sanur on the southeast coast has a good selection of places, from the newish and  sleek-lined on the beach through to a few old standards where the emphasis is on comfort. Let’s kick off with new Minami, the second branch of the well-regarded Ubud original. … read the full post

Where to eat Balinese food in Bali?

Published by under Food

UPDATE, November 2013: We’d add Merah Putih and Mamasan to our list of places to consider heading for Balinese food. Merah Putih focuses on Indonesian dishes, both classic and modern, but you’ll find a scattering of Balinese selections in among these, while Mamasan has a variety of Asian dishes, including some Balinese selections as well. … read the full post

Where is Bali’s best babi guling? Part 2

Published by under Food

We did a part 1 to our waist-busting series on Bali’s babi guling some time ago, and though I only have two restaurants to add at the moment thought it worth jotting them down, though only the first was memorable. First up: Babi Guling Negari. You’ll find this spotlessly clean joint specialising in our favourite … read the full post

Coffee on the bypass in Sanur

Published by under Food,Sanur

Bali’s Ngurah Rai bypass — stretching from Nusa Dua past the airport, skirting Kuta, Sanur and then, well, we’re not quite sure where it officially ends — can feel like a bit of a wasteland at times (you know, when it’s not slicing through mangroves). If you are using it to get from say the … read the full post
