Crispy Duck from Ubud, Bali

Bali Milkshakes

I was looking back at some travel pictures from the past year or so yesterday, and came across a meal that I remember really enjoying and hadn’t yet shared with everyone.

Last year, I took a trip to Bali, Indonesia, and I found this traditional Indonesian dish while in the small village of Ubud, which is located in the central part of the island.  It was a great little village filled with a lot of amazing arts and culture, and I definitely loved the vibe there. I highly recommend it as a great alternative to the busy beach towns and areas of Bali and hope to return someday.

Apparently the place to go for the best crispy duck is Bebek Bengil (or Dirty Duck Diner), located near Monkey Forest. Although I can’t guarantee you this is the restaurant we went to, I thought I’d still post this in case anyone is going to be heading to that laid back locale anytime soon! Normally I’d be more with it, but I guess I was on island time! 😉 The pictures I’ve seen are very familiar, and I remember overlooking the rice fields from our perch upstairs.

We had a pineapple and coconut shake with our lunch, and also tried the short rib plate.

Everything was delicious, and I’m definitely feeling a bit nostalgic and ready to get back on the road again soon…

I haven’t been to Bali before, but that short rib plate looks freaking awesome.

For myself I haven’t traveled around too much, but my favourite item that I have tried that was seriously the best to this date is a French Onion soup made, out of all places, in Mexico. I’ve tried Onion soup from a very other places and it never had the same deletable taste that this restaurant did. I know it won a lot of different awards, but the trouble I can’t remember the name of the place.

But best onion soup ever.

Wow – makes me want to take a trip there! How did they make the rice that shape?

Hi Christine, I’m not sure, but I’m guessing they had some sort of mould scoop to shape it with upon serving, as I noticed rice being served this way at quite a few places throughout Bali.
