I am always on the lookout for a good warung or restaurant that serves delicious cuisine wherever I travel in the archipelago and on my last sojourn to Bali, I discovered a great place. Sheppy’s restaurant is located on Jalan Melasti in Legian and I must have passed this place many times but never really noticed it. Across the road from the traditional markets, Sheppy’s is owned by an Australian and offers not only excellent food, but great service from a friendly staff. I particularly liked Sheppy’s because of its openness to the street making it a nice to place to people-watch, enjoy a meal or just a drink. The restaurant is very clean and one thing that really impressed me was the toilet. It was super-duper clean and not like you find in many places on the island of Bali. Candika and I ate at Sheppy’s many times after discovering the place and each time I was definitely not disappointed. The menu far is a good selection of Indonesia and western foods, all cooked to perfection and reasonably priced.
Candika at that time in Bali had a liking for Sate (Rp25,000) and she was not disappointed with the generous serving of ten sticks covered in rich peanut sauce and accompanied with a basket of soft nasi putih (Rp5,000), I could do very little to resist pinching a sate stick from her. My choice was Chicken Betutu (Rp32,000) and one of the nicest I have ever devoured. The chicken was a soft melt-in-the-mouth and with the accompanying sauce, made for a delightful meal. Of course and as usual I finished my meal off with a Bali Coffee (Rp6,000) whilst Candika had Iced Tea (Rp15,000).
Sheppy’s is one place I would highly recommend for a hearty breakfast, a cool lunch or to take friends and enjoy a delightful repast in the evening.
Sheppy’s Bar and Restaurant,
