LOCAVORE


Traveling northbound from the beaches of Jimbaran, for our second week in Bali we settled into a villa sandwiched between the dense jungle and the tranquil rice fields of Ubud. Exploring our surroundings, we found plentiful places to eat profoundly satisfying home cooking and simple fare at astonishingly reasonable prices. Punishingly spicy beef rendang and chili prawns at Puteri Menang, crisp Balinese duck at Tepi Sawah, world famous roast pig at Ibu Oka and roadside chicken satay amidst the buzzing scooters in the stifling streets - we ran the gamut.
