Bali II - Little Italy

Bali - Little Italy - Diavola Pizza

The first restaurant in Bali where we ate Italian and were not disappointed. I enjoyed my wood fired pizza but it could have been better. My travelling companions, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoyed their dishes which were cooked perfectly and were flavoursome and delicious. The cannoli was also excellent. The prices are unbelievable! For the same meal in Perth, you would easily pay double. If you’re in the mood for Italian, a visit here is a good starting point. . . . → Read More: Bali II – Little Italy

Bali II - Paon

Bali - Paon - Suckling Pig

You can’t question the generosity of the meals. They’re beyond belief! Unfortunately, the meals weren’t all that flavoursome which is a shame as we were looking forward to enjoying some traditional Indonesian fare. The refreshing mango juice was delicious and I particular enjoyed the chicken breast with this lovely sauce which was like a sweet sticky BBQ sauce. The sate skewers were also excellent. Along with the chicken, the other highlight of the meal was the dessert. Simple and delicious. Apparently spring rolls can be used for desserts. . . . → Read More: Bali II – Paon

Bali II - New York Sports Bar & Diner

Bali - NY Sports Bar & Diner - Southern Fried Chicken

It was nice to try some American fare which was quite tasty but could have been a little more authentic and flavoursome. We enjoyed both our visits here and having Western food made the holiday a lot more tolerable from a dining sense. There’s plenty to choose from the menu in terms of food and drinks (soft drinks, fresh juices, iced coffees, alcohol) and you can catch various sports on the many TV’s mounted on the walls or shoot a game of pool. . . . → Read More: Bali II – New York Sports Bar & Diner

Hotel – Sate Campur

Well after our eventful first night with a trip down Poppies Lane II and the drunken, shirtless, barefoot young Aussie men, we decided we’d head back to the hotel and get dinner there. A safer bet in security and quality of food since nothing looked particularly appealing in . . . → Read More: Bali II – Hotel Cafe

Indonesia - Bali II Travelling Experiences

Bali - Kuta Beach 2

Unfortunately my first visit to Bali was short lived when I got struck down by flu. So I decided to visit again to see why Bali is such a popular tourist attraction among West Australians in particular. Fortunately, while on our flight to Bali from Singapore, we missed the earthquake which struck Bali. . . . → Read More: Indonesia – Bali II Travelling Experiences

Bali - Ocean Asian Cuisine Restaurant

Ayam Bakar

OK, this was the only restaurant we got to try given I was confined to the hotel with flu but despite feeling off colour, the restaurant was a great choice to enjoy some Asian fare and sample a few Balinese dishes. We both enjoyed our meals and the drinks plus those wet towels provide relief and refreshment from the stifling humidity. . . . → Read More: Bali – Ocean Asian Cuisine Restaurant

Our last leg of our trip was a stop to Bali. After queuing up to get a visa and then through immigration and eventually getting to our hotel, we were glad to settle in and put our feet up. Of course, there’s always that curiosity when you walk into your . . . → Read More: Bali – Desserts & Hotel Cafe

Bali – Man Carrying Ladder On Scooter

Well my travels in Bali were short lived unfortunately when I got struck down by flu on my second day. I did get to see some of Bali but not as much as I would have liked. One thing is the traffic is crazy. . . . → Read More: Indonesia – Bali
