Default More HNR Stuff - mainly Restuarants

It's been very very windy of late and the surf has been quite huge - apparently this is due to TC Narelle off the coast of West Australia so the beaches have been closed and the lifeguards have been busy keeping people out of trouble.

Tekor Restaurant on Jln Blue Ocean has reopened, after the fire late last year and we gave it a try for breakfast - four meals with a mixture of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, fried potato, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, bread baskets, fresh juice, tea and coffee - RP100K - yummy and the price was right.

Gave Tekor a go foe dinner but was dissappointed with the half fried duck in Balinese spices - tough as old boot leather but the side dishes were really nice. No complaints about the chicken snitzel and "Gordon Blue".

Warung Tropicana in Jln Werkudera was an entertaining night and the staff we getting the guests motivated with dancing and singing and taking photos which were printed out and given to guests gratis within a few minutes. The food highlight had to be the pork ribs. My favourite place for ribs is normally Ours Restaurant on Jln Shahadewa (Garlic Lane) but the ribs at Tropicana out shone these but a mile both in taste and quantity.

The steak verdict is finally in with two visists each to Yutz on Jln Werkudera and Malo's on Jln Nakula. And the winner, by a very fine margin is Yutz. The steak probably comes from the same supplier but the presentation and sides pushed Yutz over the line. Tempted to try Moo Moo's on Jln Padma for comparision but have not ventured there yet.

Been having a few cheap and fresh meals at Warung Kartini in Three Bros Lane and have never been dissappointed - lokal makan. Had a text message from the young waiter yesterday Arya who advised they have had to shut for 3 or 4 days as the owner/chef Nyoman's mother passed away. So sad.

Went to Bloody Sweet Restaurant on Jln Legian with our old friend from Norway Sondre. The place was jumping when we arrived with the live band and thumbs up to the meals including chicken snitzel (of course), some mexican dishes and chicken, pork with hainan rice was a little on the small side but nicely presented and very tasty.

After two attempts to have dinner at La Petit Cafe on Jln Padma Ultara, the best Beef/Chicken Rendang in Bali IMO, (in the lane way that goes towards the Niksoma Hotal) and found it closed on both occasions we had given up. Until we were sitting on the beach at the end of Jln Double Six last week and we bumped into Agobi. He advised us that due to reno's across the road at the old Coconut Hotel slight they had to move fify meters away due to all the dust coming from the construction site. They are now directly accross the road from the Corner Bar and Restaurant on Jln Padma Ultara but have a temporary name change to Warung Padma. We must have walked past this place half a dozen times and not noticed it. We hit the place that night and the Beef Rendang was to die for and at only RP30K was not a huge meal but very tasty. We will go back again.

Also re-visited some old favourite restaurants including La Mode and Legian Snacks on Jln Padma Ultara, Uncle Norms on Jln Melasti and Warung Italy on Jln Kunt. Cant fault these places.

Had a nice indian meal delivered on rainy night from Queens Tandoor on Jln Raya Seminyak but got the steamed rice from a lokal warung as I find it difficult to justify RP40K for a single serve of rice from the Queens.

More HNR in a couple of days.

Went to Tommy's Cafe in Jln Werkudara as we all needed a salad fix. We all love our indo food but after a short while nothing goes down better than a fresh salad roll or the greek salad with New Zealand feta.

Wandered just up the road from Tommy's for a refreshing ale and a game of snooker at the Cook Bar (formerly Captain Cook Bar). Last time we visited this place they had a very limited food menu, mainly finger type food. I checked out the new menu and we decided to come back for dinner. The food was simple but very tasty, spicy chicken wings, chicken snitzels and chicken gravy rolls with chips - very yummy.

Went back to Warung Padma (formerly La Petit Cafe) on Jln Padma Ultara as we needed another rendang fix - both beef and chicken this time - a little on the spicy side but very nice as usual.

Another western place we like to visit for lunch because it is handy to our villa is Skoobys located in the car park of Bintang Supermarket. They have great burgers and american style hot dogs. Its also a great place to just sit and have a cold beer and watch the world go by. The only small annoying thing about this place if they run out of anything eg coke zero or eggs they dont seem to get the concept of ducking next door to Bintang Supermarket and restocking what they have run out of. I guess the answer is they have there preferred suppliers and thats it.
