Review: Zen Garden, Kerobokan

Published by under Food,Seminyak

Zen Garden on Seminyak’s Jalan Mertanadi — the road that runs up to the jail from Sunset Road — has only been open a week but shows great promise as a genuine healthy spot to have breakfast or a lingering lunch if you’d like to take a dip in their pool. Jalan Mertanadi is a … read the full post

Review: Villa Kresna Boutique Suites, Seminyak, Bali

Blindingly white with a small but glittering freeform pool, lovingly decorated Villa Kresna is hidden away on the beach-bound spur of Jalan Sarinade, a five-minute walk from the beach end of Jalan Abimanyu. A few years ago Villa Kresna lost around half of their land and a couple of years later it underwent a complete … read the full post

Review: Taco Beach

Published by under Food,Seminyak

I’ve been on the hunt for Bali’s best babi guling for some time now, so when I heard about the babi guling tacos and burritos at Taco Beach (thanks for the tip, Hati Solutions), I figured trying them would really be an essential part of the overall mission, right? Right! So it was off to … read the full post

Peekaboo Bali

Published by under Kids

Call me mother of the year but when I go to an indoor play area in Bali, I’m hoping for three things: good coffee, decent air-con, and five minutes’ peace. At still relatively new Peekaboo in Sanur, aimed at kids under nine, I mostly get all three — Mr 3 still wants me to play … read the full post

Where is Bali’s best babi guling? Part 3

Published by under Food

Setting an alarm for 2:00 — yes, in the morning — in order to meet up with someone you’ve met online, in a bid to hunt down Bali’s best babi guling: if I do say so myself, that’s dedication, dear readers.

Bali eats: Green Ginger Noodle House

Published by under Canggu,Food

Quite a few little cafes are starting to pop up in the Canggu area around the expat-popular Canggu Club, but all-vegetarian Green Ginger Noodle House, which has been open for quite a while now and is cute beyond cute, is worth seeking out for something a bit different if you’re staying in the area (somewhere … read the full post

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
