Elevated 50 meters above sea level on Uluwatu cliffs, this authentic Spanish Restaurant has a mesmerizing vertical view of the Indian Ocean. With a whole year of exquisite sunset view (unless it rains), chill till whenever you want at this super-comfy spot. Close your eyes, and start to think of anything about Spain; Madrid, Barcelona, matadors, flamenco, Ibiza.. paella.. et abras sus ojos. You feel that you’re in Spain now, the Ibiza beach.. but NO! You’re at one of the most popular beach clubs in Bali, Indonesia or perhaps the world: El Kabron. Staying at El Kabron will allow you to enjoy exquisite Spanish Foods (their Paella, a must try!), accompanied by a great selection of champagne and cocktails. Plus the sunset? Astonishing. A definite must-try when you’re in Bali.
Located at the busy Sunset street of Seminyak, this venue is just your typical roadside spots, although not with the usual line you’ll see at other warungs. You’ll do just like most of the patrons here, though. Waiting to be seated, ordering a plate of suckling pig chunks with your preferred garnish and spiciness level. How does it taste? Unbelievable. You won’t believe how succulent the pork flesh are in every bite; crispy, tender, yet so juicy. Their spiced long bean bathed in coconut chili dressing doesn’t help to stop the explosion of flavor in your mouth either. Pure art. Pure foodgasm. Exquisite.
While not featuring in our top 5 seafood venues in Bali list, Menega café is included here, due to its popularity amongst our users. One of the best spots to enjoy Bali sunset as well, Menega synergizes the mesmerizing seaside ambiance with marvelous seafood dishes. In this venue, you will enjoy a relaxing setting, added to a visual treat post-sunset with the dim light emitted by the fishing boats in the offing. This place truly is the best example of fresh seafood from the vast Indian Ocean, accentuated by exotic-tasting spices produced in a tropical island. We highly recommend their special set menu, consisting a live lobster, fish, clams, calamaries and two servings of wine. Menega Café is one not to be skipped when you’re in Bali, especially if you’re an avid seafood lover.
After reaping a big success in Hong Kong, The Butchers Club expanded its store to Petitenget Street in Kuta on 2015. You’ll see a significant amount of tourists packing this place, either for lunch or dinner. The dry-aged patty (30 days) never fails to perform its magic, boasting a tantalizing cheesy and peanutty aftertaste in your mouth. This is complimented by its super-tasty bun, supplied by a famous bakery in Bali, making this dish complete. For any of you blessed with a huge appetite, try their double happiness. Every content is doubled: patty, cheese, and the other ornaments between the two buns. They also serve great chicken, seafood & vegan burgers! A definite must-go for burger fans.
This shop is almost hidden; behind a building, wedged along a railway line. Nonetheless, this place is always packed with customers (especially backpackers). They specialize in in bakso soup, bathed in piping hot beef broth full of umami, and also pangsit (hot-wet gyoza), which will drive you crazy. You can also enjoy these meatballs with accompaniment, like rice noodle, glass noodles, and yam. Not only delicious, their servings are very generous, and their price is almost too friendly to your wallet! Definitely a worthy entry to our top 2016 meatball section.
