Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, with its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colourful, deeply spiritual and unique culture, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth.
Bali as the most visited tourist place in Indonesia is filled with five stars hotels and villas all around the area, but that doesn't mean it has only international food atmosphere. There are two Balinese specialities, Babi Guling and Bebek Betutu. Babi Guling is a grilled suckling pig with crispy skin. Most Indonesians don't eat pork, especially Moslems. But here, pork is eaten because most of Balinese are Hindus, and they don't eat beef. Bebek Betutu is a duck delicacy, where the fowl is marinated with many different herbs and spices, wrapped in banana leaves and then baked over a low flame. You can also try Balinese type of satay or they call it Sate Lilit , made from fish minced meat with freshly grated coconut, prawn paste, garlic, chillies, lemon leaves and salt to compose a sticky, dough-like mixture then wrapped around using spears of fresh lemongrass as skewers, and cook them over fire coming from coconut husks rather than charcoal. It is served with either mild or peppery sauce
