Bali - Food

Leading up to our trip we had received many recommendations and suggestions for restaurants to go to in Bali.  So armed with a long list of places we had to try we attempted as many meals out as we could.  These are some of my favourites:

Sea Circus:
A friend summed up the decor in Sea Circus by saying "if you were to have a shop this is how I'd imagine it to look".  It was right up my alley!  From the chevron painted tables to the neon drink cart in the corner.  There was DIY inspiration for me everywhere I looked.  The food is pretty fabulous here too! The fish tacos were the table favourite that night.  

Sardine is located in Pettinget so just a short drive from Seminyak but once you are there you feel so far removed from the hustle and bustle of the busy Bali streets.  The restaurant is located on the fringe of working rice paddy fields which are tended daily by the local farmers.  It was such a beautiful and peaceful outlook.    

Mama San:
My favourite restaurant from the trip.  The asian fusion menu had so many dishes that I wanted to try.  We ordered about 7 dishes between the four of us and I loved them all.  Even when one was a bit spicy for us they brought over some frozen cucumbers for us to suck on - service!  We were recommended the steamed snapper dumplings which were delicious!

Rock Bar:
Located in the stunning Ayana Resort, Rock Bar was a perfect ending place for a great trip.  Built into the cliffs at water level we first had to line up to catch the inclinator (had to look that one up!) down from the resort entrance.  Luckily we had been pre-warned about the lines and got there fairly early so we didn't have to line up for long.  Once seated on one of the several terraces it is ironic that although we had gone for the amazing view we had to shelter under huge black umbrellas to escape the beating sun!  Once the sun dropped a bit, umbrellas were collected and we were able to enjoy the view and toast a great holiday with some cocktails.
