Balinese cuisine features meat and vegetables accompanied by various spices that titillate the palate. I love it more because of the abundance of rice served with the flavorful dishes. 🙂
Nasi Goreng Spesial (yes, with an “S”) is a complete meal. Under the kropek and the sunny side up egg are chicken and almost two cups of rice. IDR 18,000 (US $1.39) at Fajar Resto.
Nasi Goreng Seafood (with tuna and shrimp), IDR 19,000 (US $1.46) at Fajar Resto
Mie Goreng Ayam (fried noodle served with chicken and vegetable), IDR 15,000 (US $1.16) at Fajar Resto
Bihun Goreng Ayam (fried rice noodle with chicken and vegetables), IDR 15,000 (US $1.16) at Fajar Resto
Tamie a la Fajar (crispy fried noodle with chicken and mix vegetables), IDR 19,000 (US $1.46) at Fajar Resto
Sambal, dip with a lot of chili. I mixed this with Tamie a la Fajar because I thought it needed some kick. I got kicked in my behind because I had too much sambal.
Bihun Kuah (rice noodle soup with chicken and vegetable), IDR 16,000 (US $1.23) at Fajar Resto
Madu Sari fried rice. The satay tasted okay, but the chicken was undercooked. IDR 69,878 (US $5.39) at Madu Sari Mountain Restaurant
Spring Roll French Fries (fried lumpia wrapper with dip), it was bland. IDR 36,300 (US $2.80) at Madu Sari Mountain Restaurant
Green Banana Pancake, breakfast at Ronta Bungalow. It is different than the pancakes I usually have, but it is a refreshing change.
Rice with chicken and noodle topping. IDR 7,000 (US $0.54). The rice is beneath the brown paper that separates it from the chicken and noodles. It is usually eaten with hands, but plastic spoons are available.
Close-up of the food. It tasted good. 🙂 I ate it at Denpasar airport while waiting for our flight.

Not really a Balinese cuisine, but we had fish and chips in Uluwatu.

Salak nangka or snakefruit, IDR 15,000 (US $1.16) for 1kilogram. This fruit travelled with Virg from Bali to Yogyakarta,
and to Jakarta, and crossed borders to Quezon City.
