Sunset view at Kuta Beach was definitely breathtaking and relaxing. I can't imagine how much more awesome can the view at Maldives be! *saving up $$ for Maldives* From Discovery Shopping Mall, we took a cab to Kuta Night Market for IDR 20,000 (SGD 2.23). It was quite a short route but the journey was around 15min due to heavy traffic. We decided to settle for Warung Wijaya along the road as it was quite crowded.
Sedia: Soto (Soup), Bakso Sapi (Veal Meatballs)
We ordered Soto Bakso (Meatball Soup, IDR 16,000 = SGD 1.80), Soto Daging (Meat Soup, IDR 14,000 = SGD 1.60), 2 plates of rice and 3 bottles of Teh botol (Sweetened Jasmine Tea). The total cost for this meal was only IDR 43,000 (SGD 4.80) for the three of us! I love the soup and their meatballs! Very yummehhhh~

We wondered around the streets, getting lost in the dark-lit streets and found the right direction after asking staffs from 2 different hotels. There were many surf brands such as Quiksilver, Roxy, Billabong around the area. Nice bars and cafes can also be easily spotted.

Blue Lobster International Seafood Restaurant & Bar
Jl. Dewi Sartika, Bali, Indonesia
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS RESTAURANT, DO NOT ENTER. This was the WORST meal we had in Bali. Before you entered, the staff standing outside was very enthusiastic and welcoming us to the restaurant. She's a Balinese but she's able to speak Mandarin as the boss of this restaurant is from mainland China. They offered 30% off the menu for selected dishes and were relatively cheap for seafood.
Once we stepped in, we were ushered to a table which was not completely cleaned. Traces of sauces were still visible on the table cloth. We called for the waiter when we were ready to make our orders. The first waiter came, he told us that the Chilli Crab which costed IDR 200,000 (SGD 22) was frozen. While we were deciding whether to take fresh crabs (much more expensive) or the frozen ones, he impatiently said "let me know once you are ready to order" and walked off. We were stunned by his action as we already came into a conclusion that we gonna take the cheaper option before he left. His service was absurd.
Another waitress walked passed and we ordered from her instead. Our fruit juices came first and it took super duper long for our 3 dishes to arrive. Looking around at other tables, they only have drinks on their tables and not food. The table next to us, an Indonesian Family, got into a dispute with one of the waiter as they have waited too long for their food. Also, the table opposite us, sitting a Caucasian family, pulled on dull faces as their food was no where to be seen after waiting for ages. We came out with a joke that this was their tactic - make all the customers wait for their food to attract new customers as the restaurant will look very full.
|Tomato Juice at IDR 15,000 (SGD 1.70)|
|Chilli Crab at IDR 200,000 (SGD 22) - Horrendous! Not only that it's not fresh, it stinks!|
|Chicken Satay - The peanut sauce was not to my liking|
|Seafood Platter - Can you believe it?! Worst platter I've seen|
|Ridiculously bad seafood meal with 3 dishes and 3 fruit juices at around IDR 360,000 (SGD 40)|
We bought alcohol while we were walking back to our hotel. Each bottle was around IDR 25,000 (SGD 2.80). They tasted quite good just that I didn't like it being slightly gassy.
|Cheers to Bali Day 1!|
