Sardine at Seminyak, Bali

Hello! (:

I finally have some time to blog about the wonderful food that we had during our short stay in Bali (: I used to enjoy going away for a longer period of time during June because it's summer in most places and the weather's perfect for sightseeing but I'm slowly starting to appreciate shorter trips where I get to do absolutely nothing at all or anything that I want actually (:

This is my second time in Bali and we decided to stay at the Nusa Dua area this time round because we wanted to just rest and not have to deal with throngs of people (: We stayed at this hotel called The Bale, which is perfect because it is essentially a small establishment with very clean, cosy and comfortable villas (: The restaurant (called Faces) and chill-out place cum bar (called Tapa) served surprisingly good food and I will probably blog about that in my next entry. In short, I'm super thankful that QTB actually found this place for us to stay at! (:

This blog post will feature this restaurant that we travelled 50mins by taxi to reach, which is called Sardine, and it is located at Seminyak Bali. The first and only time we were here, Sardine blew us away with their exceptionally flavourful and fresh seafood so we decided to make the trip to return. In addition, they have a spectacular paddy field, which is perfect for photo-taking but we realised that the padi-field was cleared this time round due to the recent drought.

Anyhow, the meal this time didn't disappoint either and I ingested so much lobster that I think I might just abstain from it for a very long time.

Alright enough descriptions, time for photos! (:

Photos of Sardine and what it looks like (it's an open-air restaurant):

Photos of the food we had: 

Very generous bread basket with yummy bread 

This has a fancy name but to me, it's smoked salmon with olives, capers, onions, fresh vegetables on pita bread  

Our huge fish that is prepared 'butterfly' style 

And this was the big lobster which we shared. The 'highlight' was that when it was brought out for our viewing (to let us check if it's okay in size and all), it actually flicked its tail at us and some water ended up being flicked at us. How unwelcoming. Ha. 

The rice and sauces that accompanied our food 

The humongous amount of food that we had. 

The meal certainly lived up to our expectations and we were very pleased and very full by the end of lunch. I managed to take a photo of their name card this time round so if you would like to visit Sardine when you are in Bali, you can take down this address:  

Alright that's all for now! (: Will blog again about the restaurants at The Bale and other yummy food soon! (:
