Seafood Tucker down out Jimbaran Bay
Whenever I get a chance to get over to the island of Bali there are a few favourite places that I generally visit in the first few days to imbibe in some excellent cuisine. Kafe Batan Waru is one of them and so is Plengkung, both in Tuban. However, as a great devourer of seafood I inevitably end up going down to Jimbaran Bay for a seafood feast. The place has changed dramatically compared to the first time I went there when people used to sit on the beach in front of an open fire whilst a Balinese guy would grill the delights of the ocean as your mouth watered. Now along the length of the beachfront there is a plethora of restaurants and warungs each serving grilled seafood of numerous quality and style. Running from Kedonganan in the north to Jalan Bukit Permai in the south, diners are spoilt for choice with over fifty places.
Personally, I prefer the smaller places in the Kedonganan area as to the more up-market places. Why? Simply because they are owners friendlier, the food seemingly fresher and most of all the prices reasonable and you can bargain for your dinner! Everybody has their favourite place in Jimbaran but for me Roma’s Warung and Dongan are fabulous.
