Your best travel dish
Rolling Roast Pork Bali Style
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Every visitor and locals alike have their own favorite Babi Guling restaurants. For me, I swear for this one place called “Warung Babi Guling Pak Malen”
Drive along Sunset Road towards Seminyak, it should be on your left. It is located at the intersection of Sunset Road and Jalan Mertanadi. The place is very humble. It looks like an ordinary warung (food stall) on a pavement. But do not be fooled by its look. This place has the best Babi Guling on the island.
As you can see in the picture above, 1 set of Babi Guling meal includes, pork neck, crunchy pork skin, pork satay, crunchy pork fat, and vegetables. They are all placed on top of rice. The pork neck is the best part of pig meat. It has less fat and very tender. It melts in your mouth, infused with secret herbs that play with your smell and taste bud simultaneously.
The crunchy pork fat on the other hand is very crunchy. It’s just like eating crackers. Mix all the parts with its pork ribs soup and Balinese chilly, and suddenly you found yourself exposed to delicious, tasty, crunchy, tender Babi Guling you could find. Just like any true Indonesian, flush it off with a bottle of cold Teh Botol. Welcome to heaven on earth.
