Suddenly I miss Bali !!! Not just the beach but also the food and what kind of food?? one of them is roasted suckling pig or we usually called them as "Babi Guling" ! A really great dish, I think everything comes from pork are delicious right? especially in Bali where one of their main meat is pork ! If we talk about restaurant or food stall that specialized in Roasted Pork you'll find so many and easily but I've found the best so far and became my favorite I can eat it everyday and didn't get bored, so they're Babi Guling Candra.
I don't know who invented this food, but thanks to them for this heavenly dishes, so basically Babi Guling is a roasted pork, and the best part is their super duper crispy fatty skin ! YES who doesn't love skin? personally I love everykind of skin but pork is unbeaten for sure. Well everytime I visit Bali, I never forget to have lunch here.
Babi Guling Candra is located at Jl. Teuku Umar No.140, Denpasar, near Simpang 6 and next to Yamaha Shop and they're easy to find because of the quite big sign and dining area and also the crowded here especially during lunch time, they have a spacious dining area and in the front of the restaurant you'll find the tempting spot ! where all the menu here are prepared.
Even in peak-time, the service still good, they operate well and you don't need to wait a long time, so it's a perfect place for a starving pork-seeker. For the menu they have so many pork stuffs and some Balinese food like Sate Lilit, Lawar and also Ayam Betutu, but of course the best-seller is Nasi Babi Guling !
>> Special Roasted Pork (Babi Guling Spesial)
I always order it ! So you'll get a plate full of delicious components including Crispy Roasted Pork Skin, Roasted Pork, Pork Satay, Satay Lilit (minced fish satay), Pork Sausage, Crispy Pork Intestine, Pork Lungs, Sauted Pork, Lawar (Balinese special vegetables) and also Pork Leg Soup and delicious chili along with rice, so it's a complete dish and of course fully meal. I like everything on the plate especially the best part crispy pork skin ! So crispy and oily of course :9
If you don't like intestine, liver or lung just don't ask here and eat it ! You won't find anything weird on your taste-buds, they comes really well, if you like spicy food their chili was superb too and their clear soup was quite good and balancing all the fat and spices, they also selling pork belly crackers that perfectly enjoy with the babi guling a must try when you visit Bali.
Well that's all and hope this article will help you to satisfy your tummy in Bali and I will write more about Bali's culinary as they have a lot of "treasure" to hunt ! so happy trying and finally...
