where we eat - bali...

without wanting to sound wanky, kurt and i like to consider ourselves foodies. i am really not one of those girls who dont eat. on most occasions i eat more than kurt and am often the first one up for seconds. i love my food, so in saying that, we carefully documented a few of our chosen eateries on our most recent trip to bali. enjoy and if you have any question, please shoot me an email. 

eat well - this place is ace for meats. on day four we were both in need of some good aussie meat so headed here for home made cheese burgers and a glass of vino. the staff and chefs were amazingly friendly and welcoming and we really enjoyed this small hole in the wall between legian and seminyak - you have to look hard for it, but its well worth the extra effort. 
delicious onion - omg. probably one of our top eateries to visit in bali. this asian fusion restaurant serves up without a doubt, cuisine to rival that of any western country. we opted for the tapas style menu so we could taste everything and left with our taste-buds screaming for more. our top picks are the famous crispy pork, blue marlin ceviche, cabbage wraps and pork gyoza. they also serve mean cocktails. most definitely worth a visit (or three...)!
taco casa - we stumbled across this gem by chance while trying to find another spot that was recommended by a friend. we thoroughly enjoyed our fajitas and nachos along with our well priced and well sized caraf of sangria. the meals are fresh and simple, just like their tag line. will be back.
gourmet cafe seminyak - again located north of seminyak in the Petitenget area, this one stop shop caters for those looking for fresh european cuisine. we dined with local french expats all enjoying baguettes, espresso and gelato to die for. one for the list if you are in need or a plain ol' meal.
laca laca - a real authentic mexican just off oberoi street with a fantastic young crowd of locals and surfers. this place was a hive of activity with friendly staff and fabulous mariachi music that really gets you in the fun oving party mood. you cant go past the red wine sangria. its fabulous and fruity.

the grill - well this place was probably our fav in amed as it served up the most delicious seafood and local organic meats all on the grill. the food in this establishment, owned by a fellow australian, is delictable. even the grilled banana dessert had us craving more. head along if you are in town, you wont regret it! promise.


the art kafe - this ubud cafe is one of our favourites and one we dine at every time we are in ubud, this time we actually went twice... live music is most nights and the vibe in this place is unbeatable. the menu is a mix of western and indonesian cuisine, off of which is cooked amazingly well. its easy to miss so make sure you know where you need to go before you head out. 


khaima - located on eat street in seminyak, this place has the most amazing hummus i have ever had. this moroccan fusion restaurant looks expensive on the outside but has really reasonably prices meals and wines, by seminyak standards. the staff are amazingly cheerful and helpful and we definitely recommend this spot.
