Never ending story, Bali.

I have visited Bali many times and always pleasure to explore it. This time, mostly Ubud area is my destination. With all its charm, Ubud is able to attract anyone to come here. Trees,  fresh air, and the hospitality of its citizens are the most prominent things.

Everyone spends their time in Ubud differently. Without a doubt, culture in Ubud is irreplaceable but you will be glad to know that their restaurant is not left behind either. There are many reasons to restaurant-hop when in Ubud with such good vibes and ambience.

And here are some of the restaurant I visited in Ubud:

Jungle Fish at Chapung Sebali

I'd heard amazing things about Jungle Fish, so me and my boyfriend ended up lunch here. I started with the Avocado Fries. This wasn’t exactly what I was expecting but it looks more like a fancy appetizer. A little bit bitter and you need dragon fruit sauce to complete the taste.

For other menu, Me and my boyfriend was contemplating whether to choose the Bolognese Pasta or the Salmon Pizza until we finally made the decision to go with the Salmon Pizza. The food was extraordinarily delicious in all the right ways. I like the ambience too. Yeah, whatever the occasion, this is your spot.

Swept Away at The Samaya Hotel

I always hesitate to give a 5-star review after only one visit, but not with Swept Away. Located at The Samaya Hotel Ubud, Swept Away has a beautiful interior specially since we were the first customers so the place was neat. First off, we started with entrees and the bread board, which comes with a loaf of delicious bread and butter.

For appetizer, I went with Salmon and Prawn with dressing that was super tasty. And for main course, I had Bebek Samaya which was amazing. Beside that, they had wine menus with a lot of variety. Then, I chose Rose Wine and my boyfriend ordered white wine. This is exactly what a great dinning experience is all about.

Folk Pool and Garden

Visited Folk Pool and Garden on a Friday at 8 pm. Our comfortable place at Folk was in the daybed, combined with the pool as a view creates an ambiance perfect for a glass of cocktail and beer. But both of them wasn’t my order. I chose Strawberry Tea and Mocktail. For food menu, Spring Rolls and Nachos were good choice. Beside that, the staffs were well-paced and very friendly. Overall definitely recommend this place. Nice and quiet. Good for date nights.

Habitat Cafe

Need some coffee, so here we go. Habitat Ubud! My boyfriend and I lucked into getting the last two seats at Habitat in outdoor area. I went with Hot Latte and my boyfriend ordered Iced Cappuccino. About my Latte, It’s not too heavy, very light flavors. Maybe I should ordered double shot, but no problem. For food, I opted for the Salmon Sushi which has a strong taste. I thought they used ‘kecombrang’ into it. And in fact, these Sushi went perfectly with my coffee : )

Beside that, these are another highlights to visit in Bali :

Ibiza In Bali

Wow! Yes, the rating is correct. This place is outstanding. But I don’t know this place wasn’t too crowded even though I came at the weekend. Maybe Ibiza in Bali has to do more extra marketing strategies because in my opinion this place is good to visit.

Anyway, I started with Calamary for appetizer, very much recommend. Next, we have Barramundi for share. Huge portion and it’s wonderful taste. So smooth and very rich with the squid ink sauce. And I ordered one bottle of white wine to share with my friends.

Just can't say enough about what a special treat it was. The server was friendly and helpful throughout the meal. She kept our wine filled and was not pushy about getting drinks, dessert, etc. And we can used Daybed in front of the beach. Overall make sure to stop by for lunch or dinner during the weekend in Ibiza.

Pison Coffee

I always visit the Pison every time I’m in Bali. Although Pison has a branch in Jakarta (Senopati), but still in love with Pison in Bali, unbeatable.And I've been here twice during my visits in Bali (11 – 15 June). Anyway, my all time favourite is Iced Cappuccino. You’ll be blessed with this coffee which was has a bold taste with subtle hints of sweetness. My other favourites were Spaghetti Bolognese and Almond Croissant. Both were amazing. This was a great lunch to be sure!
