Bali’s Paddy Fields & Crispy Duck

Bali, March 2014 – The most interesting dining experience in Bali must have been at Bebek Tepi Sawah’s Ubud restaurant. Tables are placed inside pavilions, in the midst of paddy fields. The ambience is rustic, and perfectly compliments the Balinese cuisine here.

Mr. King ordered a few dishes for us to savour.   Every dish was accompanied by steamed rice – ideal to go with the richly flavoured meats and fish.

Ayam Asap Goreng – Fried smoked chicken with water spinach and Sambal.  Our toddler son enjoyed the fried chicken (without the spicy Sambal)!

In Indonesian cuisine, Sambal is always present. Sambal is a spicy sauce made with chili peppers, shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, shallots, palm sugar and vinegar. It really gives the meats, fish and even vegetables that extra “kick”!
