Food Trails from KUTA to KOTA
Well, the journey actually began in Malaysia, the airport of Kuala Lumpur to be precise, where we merely spent few hours in transit. We couldn't wait to begin our search for good food, especially after having boring in flight meals.
With gorgeous mouth watering sights in the food court, we were more than happy to be spoiled for choices.
While he settled for the chicken noodle meal, i decided to stick to the chicken and rice combo. But the interesting addition was the lotus root salad, that tasted quite nice with a small tinge of sweetness.
We stayed at three different places in Bali and enjoyed various types of cuisines, primarily Asian for obvious reasons. Bali shares a lot of common ancestral culture and practices with the Indian Hindu culture. We saw Hindu gods, and temples bearing similarities in architecture with South Indian styles. Though the most apparent commonality in terms of food is the huge consumption of rice, the flavors and taste that the unique cuisine carries was definitely very different and new.
At the Terrace rice fields in Tegalalang !
The best meal we had in Kuta - fried chicken noodle ! It was so yummy that we couldn't have enough of it. Despite the generous serving we ordered more of the same and relished it till the last bite.
Calamari Rocket - squid in hot tomato sauce; First time experience in food too !
ikan bakar bumbu oles - literally translates to grilled fish with seasoning - our last dinner at Legian, near Kuta
