Yesterday, my care group friends and I, we went for dinner at somewhere different. Someone suggest Villa Bali, so off we went.
Never been there before, and the place looks very ‘bali’ indeed. There are ‘huts’ where you can dine. You can choose between the more usual table and chairs, or you can choose ‘to sit and cross your legs kind’ with a low table.
We chose the normal table and chairs kind.
What did we eat? Since it was nearly 745 pm, and we were so hungry, the 4 of us decided we shall eat first. So, we ordered the “Balinese Dinner Platter” $60.
It came on a bit platter like what you see here. There’s chicken sambal, sate lilit, fish pepes, lawar kacang, bergedel, sambal eggplant, chicken curry, beef rendang, chicken sate and bali rice.
The place is too dim so I had to use flash. LOL. It has been some time since I used the flash on my camera! The food’s quite tasty.
Then at nearly 9 pm, another person finished work and is joining us. Another can’t make it. So with one more coming, and we were still hungry, we ordered another set.
This is the Thai Set, the smaller set at $40.
There’s fried rice, soft shell crab, mango salad, fish pieces, mince beef, prawns and roast chicken. We actually find this nicer.
We were quite happy about this place except for something. When we asked for a refill of cold water, guess what they said? “We only have 1 serving of cold water”. WHAT??!!
I guess this place is a place where people come here for drinks. Maybe that’s why they have such a silly billy rule. Of course, you pay $4.50 for the 300ml of imported water, which someone in our group did. (thirsty what… what to do? LOL)
An interesting thought to put to you if you are one of those who likes to drink ‘imported’ water.
