So I went to Bali again last week 12 September 2016 and found this amazing restaurant!! The name is OZT Cafe International. They are fairly new, only just opened for about a couple of months in Bali, originally come from Bandung, West Java for the past 18 years. In Bali, they are located on the 2nd floor of EIGER shop at Jl. Sunset Road no. 20, Seminyak 80361, Bali, Indonesia. You might not notice it because they don’t use a jumbo-sized sign, but it’s truly a HIDDEN GEM in the middle of Sunset Road. I highly recommend you all to try this restaurant whilst visiting Bali!

They existed since 1998 due to their “homemade BBQ Sauce”; it is their secret family recipe which only the mother and the daughter who were able to make the sauce. I tried it and it’s incredibly super duper yuuuuuuuuuuuum!!!

So I ordered the famous Pork Ribs. It comes in 3 size, the smallest one starting price is IDR 85000 before tax and service, for a lady (yes, I’m a cute little lady haha :P) the smallest size fits my belly just right! Because it comes with 2 selection of side dishes. They have quite a few of choices from french fries, mashed potato, saute mixed vegetables, and many more.

Also for all of you who don’t eat pork, don’t worry because they also have a looooot other appealing dish such as Wagyu Beef!! OMG I also liked the wagyu very very much, so tender, juicy and rich in flavour! It just melts in my tongue when I ate it! The wagyu comes with a choice of sauce, at that time I ordered pepper sauce which blend in very nicely with the wagyu.

The wagyu beef is the one in the middle with white sauce on top of the following picture:

I tried their mixed berry drink (located on the bottom left of the previous picture) and I should say it was very fresh and rejuvenating!

 

They also won Dilmah Real High Tea Challenge 2015 as the Best Mocktail/ Cocktail category. The drink is presented in a very cute look. It tasted like tea and almond.

If you are still craving for more, also try their CRISPY PORK BELLY! They serve it with sambal matah (Balinese) on the side.

Overall I really loved the food that OZT Cafe International served! I came back there twice in my short trip in Bali! Quality of food is superb with a not so expensive price comparing to similar type of restaurants in Bali. Last time the 4 of us spent IDR600.000 (around AUD60) in total, so approximately IDR150.000 (around AUD15) per person for food and drink. You cannot find a $15 wagyu bargain anywhere in Australia for a quality like this one hahaha 😀

 

Truly exceptional, and it’s in my come back restaurant list! 🙂 If you are in Bali, don’t forget to eat at OZT Cafe International! To make it easier for you to book this restaurant, here is the link where you can make a reservation for OZT Cafe:

Galungan and Kuningan in Bali

Galungan and Kuningan in Bali

%e8%9e%a2%e5%b9%95%e5%bf%ab%e7%85%a7-2016-09-21-%e4%b8%8a%e5%8d%8810-24-47

The Balinese celebrate the day of Galungan, which commemorates the triumph of Dharma over Adharma, or good against evil.As the Balinese use a 210-day calendar system known as the Pawukon that is the basis for their daily rituals, temple anniversaries and holidays. Galungan is celebrated past 2 weeks on the September 7, 2016.

This year the Galungan festivity starts on a Tuesday on February 9 and September 6, when bamboo poles decorated with young coconut leaf decorations line the streets all over Bali. This is a unique welcome to Bali if you happen to be on the island around this time. Traditionally, Galungan day sees the slaughtering of pigs for communal feasts, as well as baking traditional rice cakes and erecting iconic ‘penjor’ bamboo poles. Celebrants in traditional attire attended temple ceremonies with their families, bringing with them offerings of fruits to temples and family shrines – which they share and enjoy after prayers.

 

The day of Galungan is important for the Balinese, similar to a new year, when everyone returns to their families and home villages. The following Thursdays, Manis Galungan, like Boxing Day, is a day to visit friends and relatives or for fun family trips.

Kuningan, on the other hand, marks the end of the 10-day festival. The ceremony surrounding Kuningan refers to special offerings made of yellow turmeric rice. Yellow is also the colour of the god Wisnu, the protector of the Hindu trinity.
