Embun cafe, a unique-formed-bamboo restaurant with ricefield view

A Japanese owned restaurant with unique-formed-bamboo building, eye-refreshing rice field view and neat Japanese garden.

The foods are just ok.
The ambiance, the building and the view are INSPIRING.
A nice place to spend a chill Sunday afternoon.

gurame bumbu cobek in floating gubug Mang Engking

A romantic place, especially during the night. Eating in floating ‘gubug’ hut over a big fish pond with nice bamboo ambiance and sounds of water drops.

As a branch of original place in Yogyakarta and Depok.
Even though I’m a big fan of shrimp and they are famous for their shrimps, but I would not recommend shrimp.
But you have to try Gurame Bumbu Cobek (spicy carp fish on mortar). Or other sundanesse meal like sayur asem, karedok, ikan asin jambal, kelapa muda jeruk etc

Rp 120k-200k for two

hanging wooden bridge & sunset in Warung Agung

To get into this unique simple place, you have to put some efforts. Like the saying, no pain no gain.

From Batu Belig beach (Grand Bali Sani Hotel) walk (on foot) to your right side on the beach. In about 500 meters you will find a hanging wooden bridge ‘jembatan goyang’ over a tiny river. A small version of fear factor.

Or actually you can go by car/motorcycle from batu belig road turn right on small street on the way to Canggu till you find the small sign of this warung on bellow address. But hey, no fun doing the ordinary way.
Warung Agung Kayu Putih
Phone 03617472300 Jl pura kayu putih, batu belig.

Enjoy a sunny afternoon here till sundown. A different feel of Bali, a less crowded feel.

BODAG MALIAH, organic food in the middle of ‘real’ ricefield

Bodag Maliah / Sari Organic, Jl subak sok wayah 0361972087/7801839

taken from an old post on my facebook:

Bali amazed me. Today my friend and his little family took me to a restaurant out of no where in the middle on the rice field, a real rice field not like the one in bebek bengil, we had to walk 20min to get there, no road for car. But lots of guest. No mktg ad, no free mag reviews, just the power of mouth! The true marketing strategy.
