September 2016 I visited Bali and went for a restaurant hunt. I came to Kayu Aya area and found this restaurant Gapet. The owner was there and he recommended me Chicken Satay.
And so the food came and he said to me to try the satay without the peanut sauce first then taste the difference with the sauce. Oh my! The flavour of the meat burst in my mouth, the meat itself is already rich with flavour, it is somewhat salty and sweet. Next I tried it with the peanut sauce. The sauce is great but I prefer eating it without the sauce, so I could savour the rich flavour of the meat and I’m one happy girl 😀 This is the best chicken satay I’ve ever eaten so far in my life. Not sure if there’s any satay which worth comparing with its flavour.
The owner is really nice, he gave me a trial of the Betutu Roasted Chicken and Woku Roasted Chicken. He said they are his own recipe and made only with local grown herbs. Well, I should say that the flavour match the description he was explaining. Every dish were rich in flavour with different character to each one. It represents local flavour from all around Indonesia. This restaurant sells chicken and duck and they could be presented in 10 different flavour character, 2 of them which I tried were Betutu (Balinese local dish) and Woku (Manado local dish).
If you are in Bali and looking for some authentic Indonesian flavour, make sure to check out Gapet Restaurant in Seminyak area. You will not regret! I highly recommend the chicken satay.
