Bali - Day 2 (Part 3) - Bebek Bengil & Babi Guling, Ubud

Bebek Bengil (Dirty duck) is a restaurant in Ubud, very well-known for its crispy fried duck served with Indonesian vegetables and delicate sambal . Tasty and mouth-watering! 

This actually came from a secret family recipe, but they eventually shared it… the mystery behind the crispiness is that the ducks are marinated for 36 long hours in Indonesian herbs and spices. After that, they are steamed and deep-fried to get the crispy touch, then voila! The famous Bebek Bengil crispy duck is born…

Bebek Bengil (Dirty Duck) Rp68,000 @ RM25.30

Wondering about the name, right? Dirty Duck?? Well, the owner said it was named after their first guests, which was a flock of ducks from the surrounding rice fields that flew into the restaurant and made a real mess with their muddy footprints. Very fascinating! 


Other than dirty duck, their pork ribs are also something you can't afford to miss when you are in Bali. The meat was marinated for very long hours resulting in very tender and flavourful meat. 

Pork Ribs (Rp62,000 @ RM23.10) - very reasonably priced

If you happen to stay or visit Ubud right now or plan to take a trip to Ubud, don't forget to include Ibu Oka's Suckling Pig to your places-to-eat list.

 Ibu Oka is a small, slightly dingy open-air restaurant located smack in the middle of Ubud town. You have to go early (ideally around 1030am), firstly to avoid the queues, but also (and more importantly) to ensure that you won't arrive only to be told that they are sold out (the restaurant only prepares a couple each day). While there are a few variations, order the which translates to a plate full of everything: soft, succulent meat, crispy skin, deep-fried intestines, more pork meat mixed with spices, and a chilli-vegetable relish. This is served with rice. Order your meal, take off your shoes and head into the dining area. Sit on the floor and dig into one of the most transcendental food experiences of your life; it really is an almost religious experience.
