That's it. Tomorrow I'm going to a dentist, and I'm scheduling an appointment to get this stupid tooth out of my mouth. I'm getting sick and tired of it, AND it's given me a headache on top of not being able to eat my favorite foods for the past week. Frankly speaking, I'm getting sick of porridge.
So, speaking of food, let's move on to the next post on my Bali trip. Being typical Malaysians, me and my larling just went around town looking for good food to eat. The first 'local' dish we tried was this:
Yup, 'Dirty Duck'. Otherwise known as Bebek Bengil, it is actually crispy fried duck, and actually quite clean. I donno why they call it dirty duck, maybe because you had to get your hands dirty to eat it (best way to eat it is to RIP IT APART with your hands and SUCK the meat off the bones). Very good, very cripsy, very YUM YUM.
The restaurant ambience was also pretty nice ...
...though I think it's slightly on the 'high end' side, as far as food in Ubud goes.
Anyway, the next day, we tried something differnt, and slightly dirtier than even dirty duck: BABI GULING, or suckling pig (DEFINITELY non-halal, this, so all you people who are sensitive about pigs, then feel free to get out of here. Otherwise, be warned, there IS a picture of a pig here, and even a cartoon of one *sic*.)
This 'establishment' is more on the 'roadside hawker' type of place, and here's what they serve:
Yup, PORK (Duh). they serve rice with pork meat, innards and what not, like this:
VERY popular with the locals, so sometimes you have to line up for it. Quite cheap though, only less than RM5 for a whole plate. Taste? Pretty good, very aromatic, and quite tasty too.
Ambience here is not quite as nice though:
Anyway, next we heard about this Nasi Ayam in the outskirts of Ubud, and being the eccentric Malaysian tourists we were, decided to CYCLE the 5 odd km outside of Ubud just to eat that.
It was called Nasi Ayam Kedewatan (after the street it's located on), and by the time we'd arrived there, we were too damn tired to care WHAT we were eating, frankly. But thankfully, it was the right place, and the chicken rice, which looked like this:
Was quite tasty too. I finished my plate, AND half of my larling's. It had some spicy chicken, lots of deep fried innards (including something that looked so gross we didn't even wanna TOUCH it), and was slightly spicy (which wrecked havoc on our stomachs as we were cycling back. It BUUURRRNS!!!).
Oh, and later when I was cycling alone (she had gone off to the spa) and got in the rain, I happened to stop by a roadside stall and had some fish satay...
The ones on the left are pure fish, and the ones on the right is fish paste mixed with coconut. Both were GOOOOOD (though if you're paranoid about food being sold on sidewalks and roads, then you'd better not try).
So, that were the more interesting things we ate while we were there in Ubud. There WERE other stuff like peanut kueh, goreng pisang, and I had some weird mushy kueh thingy that had banana in it, but it was all so so only. Oh, and of course, that's besides the hotel's American breakfast we had daily by the padi field. Yum.
Ok, I'd better stop talking about food now or I'll scream.
