After Sanur, now I’m going to Bedugul area. Bedugul is a mountain lake resort area in Bali, Indonesia. It’s located in the centre-north region of the island near Lake Bratan on the road between Denpasar and Singaraja. Other nearby lakes are Lake Buyan and Lake Tamblingan.
Bedugul enjoys a mild mountain weather due to its location at an altitude of about 1,500 metres above the sea level. Major sites in Bedugul are the Eka Karya Botanic Gardens and the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan (water pura). Pura is Balinese temple or Hindu temple.
Beatiful view in here! I really enjoy the coolness of the air. I do not feel it in Jakarta city. After get around at Pura Ulun, I feel so hungry. I really confuse because there’s no recommendation in this Bedugul area that I’ve got from my culinary friends. Wew, so I have to find it out by myself.
On the right side of Pura Ulun, there’s a Lombok Food Restaurant: RM Ayam Taliwang As Siddiq. I decided to dine in this place.
Ayam Taliwang is the specialty dish in here and it’s also the most famous Lombok food. Ayam Taliwang is made with chicken, which is cut and cleaned prior to grilling. Once it has been grilled halfway, it is removed from the grill and tenderized with a pestle. It is then dipped in cooking oil; after several seconds in the oil, it is put in a spicy sauce of garlic, chili, and shrimp paste. It is then fried or grilled to order.
Ayam Taliwang physically appears similar to regular grilled with a covering of sambal. Its taste is sweet and spicy. Very yummy! You can asked for the spiciness level (medium or strong). Price 32 K.
It can be served with a side of Plecing Kangkung (water spinach with chili sauce). Price 8 K. They mixed the boiled water spinach, bean sprout, grated coconut and fried peanut and covering it all with spicy chili. Very nice and of course healthy!
Other side dish you can choose is Beberuk (eggplant with chili sauce). It has the same version with Plecing Kangkung.
Accidentally found, but it’s really impressed me. I definitely will be back in here if I have another chance.
