Corn soup with chicken – the chicken was tender but the soup itself was very common on the taste side.

Assorted main dish platter for two. As there was only one set menu available, we have no choice, but hopefully this main dish platter quite satisfied our craving for high-quality local food. All the dishes includes: (from 3 o’clock position)

Ayam suir – Shredded chicken breast with pete beans and sambal ulek in crispy cup

Pepes udang galah– Grilled sweet shrimps in turmeric leaves with bumbu merah, grated coconut and sweet basil. I wonder why it is said ‘sweet shrimps’, this one was the most spicy dish among all the courses. Both of us were spiced to die. But it was really good.

Gulai gurita belacan– Fresh caught octopus curry from Sumatra with baby okra and green chilli

Botok ikan– Steamed fish fillet marinated with tamarind turmeric spice in a banana papillote

Lawar Bali-Long bean and young papaya salad with minced duck and basa gede

Lengko Cirebon salad– Fresh cucumber, bean sprouts, spring onions, shrimp crackers, soya bean curd, soya bean cake and sweet peanut sauce. The only item that was not spicy, but probably the one we enjoyed the most.

Sate kablet dengan sate asem – Minced chicken sate with gizzard & spicy sweet sour glazed chicken satay. I prefer the later one as the chicken was cubed with better texture and flavor.

The desserts also came in a combination form. Most of the desserts are similar to those from Singapore.

Pia Dewata-Flaky pastry filled with mung beans. Similar to tradtional red bean moon cakes.

Getuk lendri – Steamed cassava with grated coconut sprinkles of white sugar

Lapis legit – Homemade layer cake, an inspiration from Surabaya

Limpang – Fried banana dumpling with caramelized, brown sugar sauce

Dadar gulung – Pandan crepes roll, filled with palm sugar and grated coconut

KOPI LUWAK

Kopi Luwak is a special kind of coffee as it is coffee beans which have been eaten and digested by an animal called Luwak, also known as Civet. Born from Sumatra and Java, this species of civet live on chicken for protein and also feed on fruits like banana, papaya and coffee bean.

 

We had a great dinner at Dulang. It is a nice place to try assorted Balinese dishes. The price is really ressonable for a hotel restaurant., at IDR 585.000 net person.
