Volcano view at Bali Asli
When a restaurant’s name literally translates to ‘making something authentically Balinese’ you know that you’re going to have an amazing dining experience. And that is exactly the case with Bali Asli, a restaurant and cooking school located near the town of Amlapura, Karangasem regency, in the north east of Bali. Food here is served to you on communal platters, the way the King’s soldiers of Karangasem would feast during the 17th century. The unique tapestry of flavours is sourced locally, and cooking is done via deliberate, traditional methods, such as using mortar and pestles, steaming baskets and wood-fire mud brick stoves. You won’t find a single electrical cooking appliance on the premises. From the restaurant you have an amazing view over the valleys and Bali’s highest and most sacred mountain, Mount Agung.
