Okay big eaters, here’s a place for you! Located on Jl. Legian, opposite Poppies II, is a western snack food place called ESC. Its easy to spot, a 3 storey place, with a Sky Lounge and wi-fi internet. There is plenty to choose from on the menu and the portions will blow you away. I have said before I eat 1 burger a year. Today I ate that burger and it was a good one. My burger was the Bacon Mushroom Double Cheeseburger (38,000rp) served with fries. Man this thing was loaded, as you can tell by the photo. I managed to eat it all, but there was no room for anything else. My friend Palu ordered a club sandwich which also came with fries. His thing was a monster, so he had to offer it around to us other blokes to help finish it off.
