Crackers Bar & Grill: Candi Kuning Bali

crackersCrackers Bar & Grill is located just off of the main road that goes from Baturiti to Lake Bratan. Tucked away behind a local market, the place feels like an optical illusion. It definitely a cultural aberration and a pleasant surprise for western tourists passing through. Crackers is run by David from Australia and has been open for a year or so. My visit was arranged by Laura who is very active in Bali forums, David running the Balichatforum. Laura had told me Crackers boasts the cleanest bathrooms in Bali. I reckon she’s not far off after using them myself, the place was spotless and modern.

This could be a big selling point for Crackers, as its location in the highlands means cold wet weather is often the deal. People driving from Singaraja to Kuta need somewhere to stop or a quick drink, bite to eat and toilet stop. The walls are decorated with sporting memorabilia, and David told me some famous people had stopped in including Jack Nicklaus.

During our visit the rain lashed and I enjoyed my fish & chips. Ika said her nasi goreng was good, which is a safe bet for someone who doesn’t know what to order. I would stop in on a road trip for sure. Crackers offers a relaxed, clean place for a rest, toilet break, quick snack, hot drink or a beer. In this part of Bali, where western bars and restaurants are in short supply, it might be a pleasant surprise for you to check out Crackers. I have no idea when this place is open from. Probably late mornings to late afternoons is the go.
