Culinary journey Bali – part 04 Gado Gado Restaurant Seminyak

leave a comment »

One of my all-time favourite restaurants in Bali, Gado Gado is one not to be missed if you are a fan of seafood in a super setting by Seminyak Beach. Located at the end of Jalan Dhyana Pura, it was a 3 minutes walk from where we were staying in Seminyak, the Sofitel Seminyak Resort.

As you can see below, stunning food together with an excellent selection of both new and old world wines. I ordered a nice Italian red although we were having seafood.

Food pictures are a little overexposed due to the flash (super powerful one), but I think you get the picture. Open for lunch (I think) and dinner.

Photos – Bali, Indonesia

leave a comment »

Finally managed to upload some of the photos I took, please take a look at it here. Assorted photos of Spa Village Tembok, Kamandalu Resort Ubud, Sofitel Seminyak together with location shots of Tembok, Kintamani, Ubud, Seminyak and Tanah Lot.

My favourite would be the sunset picture at Tanah Lot, and the pebble shot on black sand at Tembok.

A big thank you to Spa Village Tembok Bali for hosting our stay in Tembok, especially to Cheryl and Adrian. We were treated like king and queen, especially since we were the only guests in the resort during our stay. Spa treatments were of worthy mention! Food was of superior quality.

Comments are much appreciated! Off to Europe on Sunday! Cheerios!

The Big Bali Plan

with 2 comments

So the big Bali plan has been finalised, somewhat…

We’ll be arriving Bali on 25th June (a big *aHeM* – my birthday lahhhh) and spend two to three nights at Spa Village Tembok at Singaraja on the northeastern side of the island.

After that brief period of isolation and reflection (I make it sound so spa-ish, don’t I?), we move on to Seminyak… Haven’t decided on which place yet, but it’ll probably be either The Oberoi Bali, Sofitel Seminyak Bali or some nice villas around the area.

Good plan?? I think so too…

A domani!
Un bacio grande, Leo
