If you like adventures, this place might suit you well. Bali Asli is located in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Karang Asem regency. They said, Bali Asli can be reached around 2 hours from Bali airport … to me, taken almost 3 hours to reach this place. We never been around in this area and was only depending on Waze and Google map. But, we enjoyed the ride. It had to pass through countryside, up and down the hill, narrow streets, but along the way was great view, fresh air and less people :).

And when you arrived to this place …got into the restaurant, I promised you…you will be amazed. The view was stunning … the rice fields surround this restaurant, and if you are lucky enough to have clear sky, you will be able to see Mount Agung from the restaurant. All the trouble to get to this place was worthwhile and what I like most was the quietness … really calming and peaceful.

For the food, Bali Asli Restaurant offers traditional Balinese cuisine, served using traditional Balinese style kitchen, which called “Paon”. This kitchen is created from mud brick stoves, using wood-fired to cook. Actually, this kind of “Paon” is commonly used in Javanese traditional style kitchen, too. In java, we called it “Pawon”, pronounced almost the same too. This kind of cooking technique, can make your food taste better. Just like in the West, when they cook pizza in brick oven…the taste is believed better than pizza from conventional oven. At this restaurant, their food ingredients are mostly self-grown in their garden/neighbors or got them from the local market. This conditions sometimes limit them in making the food, that’s why they don’t serve many kind of food in one time. However, they serve the food in unique way. Some pictures taken from my visit below.

I am personally not quite impress with the food, although I love the Loloh/Jamu very much. But, I am in awe with the view and mostly with the peaceful atmosphere that’s dominating this place.
