For good reason, Balinese cuisine is highly appreciated by connoisseurs for its freshness, its spices and its variety, influenced by the geography of the island and its history. This makes it a tasty culinary experience for tourists discovering it for the first time. But unlike the West with its star-studded restaurants, good Balinese cuisine is everywhere, from the unlikely market food stalls as seen in the photo to the humble warungs found along the roads. Apart from the classics like nasi/bakmi goreng, nasi campur, gado-gado, sate, lawar, etc. they all have a specialty like the famous babi guling (grilled pig), bebek betutu (herb stuffed duck). Our customers Anne and Jacob on the photo, stopped at the Negara market to taste the traditional chicken porridge which they loved! Selamat makan! (Enjoy your meal!)

Recently, a family from Australia, staying at Dajuma for a few days, ordered a Babi Guling prepared by our staff. The pig was cooked in Rudi’s house, one of our kitchen supervisor and then brought to Dajuma garden for degustation. Everybody in the family enjoyed this special meal : they said « Sangat Enak ! » which means « Absolutely Delicious ! »
