Nusa Dua was the last stop on my dad and I’s southeast Asian adventure. It was the more upscale part of the island- with all the major hotel chains along the southeastern coast.
This is also where I disovered the most amazing restaurant- by far my favorite on the island of Bali. Hidden on the beach surrounded by big-name hotels was Kendi Kuning (the yellow jar). Kendi Kuning is run by an Australian woman and her Balinese husband. It’s been around for a few years now, and has patio that reaches to the beach and the best local dishes I had tasted on that trip. For being in the middle of an overpriced and tourisry area, Kendi Kuning’s prices were more than just reasonable! They even picked us up and took us back to our hotel! It really was just the best find on that island. We even went back a second time….
It was here that I had the opportunity to try delicious local meals such as Chili Mahi Mahi, Bakso Soup, Udang Bumbu and Mie Goreng.
I realized that I really like spicy food, and Indonesian food is the perfect mix of asian and indian food. Not to mention the local seafood… I was dreaming of Kendi Kuning every day in Nusa Dua. My dad and I would try other places and look at each other and shrug… it just wasn’t as delish as Kendi Kuning.
We managed to get a pinch of sun during our days in Nusa Dua before we headed back to Kuala Lumpur.
