In search of another restaurant that serves great crispy duck in Bali, we came upon many recommendation of this place. And since we would be staying in Petitenget area, we listed this place as one of our to-try option, which we did. On our second night staying at Bali Island Villa, we decided to come here for dinner.
There are plenty of parking spaces available in front of the restaurant and the restaurant itself is an open air two-storey building. When we were there, it was fairly quiet, I think there were only two other tables occupied on the ground level where we were also seated. They have wooden furniture through out the ground floor (I imagine it would be the same as top level, but can’t confirm) and it feels modern Balinese style. There are a couple of standing fan in the restaurant to help circulate the air.
The menus on offer was quite extensive, they offer western food, balinese and general indonesian food. But, of course after seeing that name board in front of the restaurant that says “The finest crispy ducks in Bali”, how can you go by not ordering one? So we ordered one crispy duck and one grilled pork ribs.
I must say the pork rib is so much better than the crispy duck! Not that the crispy duck is not delicious, it packed with flavours and crispy skin yet still succulent inside. You can definitely still taste the “duck” flavour maybe due to how succulent the meat is compared to some other brands where the meat is just as dry and crispy as the skin. So, it comes to your preference of how you like your crispy duck. I like the really crispy type myself, but hubby like this version better.
The bbq pork ribs, however is the true highlight of our dinner. Packed with flavours, a little spicy, the smokiness, and how tender the meat is! Gosh, the meat was literally falling off the bones. And the mashed potato side dish is so smooth and very well seasoned. The salad side dish was dressed in balsamic vinegar which complimented the ribs nicely.
To summarize, I’d definitely come back again for their bbq pork ribs also hubby will not mind their crispy duck either. By the way, the crispy duck is a lot cheaper than at the famous Bebek Bengil or Bebek Tepi Sawah. All in all, it was a lovely dinner, nice atmosphere at the restaurant and we went back to the villa with full tummy and happy faces 🙂
