Bali - Seminyak foodie

foodie in Seminyak area, Bali

I love Asia. When it comes to culture, aesthetic, travel, life... Everything. I don't have issues sampling different kinds of food in a wide range of restaurant styles (from fancy rooftop spots to streetmarkets). The only problem is that back home, we eat quite clean, so after a couple of days eating local things, I start to feel terrible. Extremely heavy, thirsty all the time and deprived of hunger altogether. Hence, when traveling I do my best to balance - typically getting a full continental breakfast, minor lunch of local things and dinner including my staples (salad, raw/grilled protein).

We walked around Seminyak in the previous post, as in this we'll cover 2 favourites restaurants of Bali - the third is Warung Bamboo in Jimbaran Beach, which are ideal for my favourite meals of the day (breakfast and dinner). We had some problem with cash availability during our last night, but I would have loved to stay for party in La Favela, which is also in Seminyak area. Basically we could not get any cash with our debit card (and I had forgotten credit at the hotel) so we had to go back home, fearing we couldn't pay for any drinks we ordered... Still the mood, decoration and music was just perfect for ending a vacation. We did have dinner but took no pictures at Cafe Bali, which is an ultra decorated place where Birthday's are celebrated with Pitbull's fireball.

2. Char Char Grill [WEB]
Imagine dining on a staircase overlooking the street. Not really the most comfortable location, but definitely quite a fun see-and-be-seen type of experience. Ironically, there I was, sporting an old t-shirt and bermudas from Enrique as my suitcase had gone MIA the night before but I had already been notified that it would be coming the morning after - not much of a point to buy anything new, but bikinis. It had been quite a long day, so we sat down for some afternoon drinks but ended up having dinner there. Highly advisable. The decor is as good as the wine. Tables are available inside, for those of you not willing to compromise the comfort or to manage the dinner in the event of rain with strong wind.
