|Main dining room for Wantilan Bali|
Okay, while we looked at the lunch menu, Shawn sipped on a Bintang Beer and I fell in love with my generous glass of McGuigan Black Label Chardonnay. Ahhh, how very nice...okay, let's look at this lunch menu.
|Vegetarian Nasi Goreng - Lunch ($11)|
As we enjoyed our drinks and listened to the lovely noises of wok-tossing in the kitchen, another couple came in to enjoy the lunch menu. Yay. Even though we hadn't eaten yet, we really liked the feel of Wantilan, and were pleased that others were supporting their lunch-time endeavors.
The first to arrive was the vegetarian nasi goreng - a Balinese fried rice dish served with scrummy-yummy satay skewers of tofu & some other nutty-type of thing, and colourful prawn crackers. The rice itself was pretty good, a little bit too sweet for our taste, but we ate it all, so no harm done.
|Beef Rendang Sampi Lunch ($11)|
This is the best beef rendang I've ever had. The meat falls apart, and the curry is bold with flavourI believed it, because he didn't say much else inbetween bites! ha!
My dish arrived moments after Shawn's was served, and although I had no idea what a Jukut Tuung Misi Tahu Tempe lunch would entail, I was pleasantly surprised!
These great-valued little lunch dishes have teased us enough to want to return. Granted, there will be no Entertainment voucher next time, but that doesn't matter. This place is worth paying full price.
If you haven't tried Balinese food before, like us, giving a lunch menu a try is a great way to go.
