The Sang Ria in Bali was our First Balinese Meal

This lovely local restaurant is set back off a busy main road in Legian. Literally about 5mins walk from our hotel and loads of parking for motorbikes along the road but no space for cars as it’s a one-way road.

Food Quality

We started with drinks; I chose the watermelon juice (I think I’m quite obsessed with it), and it was a good healthy portion too. Lee also went for his absolute favourite, an iced chocolate; he said it was nice, very chocolatey but a fake chocolate syrup kind of tastes and he wish there were crushed ice instead of large ice cubes.

I chose the chicken satay, but only after they had said they had no grilled fish. I wasn’t disappointed though as it came with a proper delicious satay sauce, I could tell it was made from crushed peanuts and not a jarred peanut butter as it wasn’t as sweet as normal.
The chicken was very moist, and the stir-fried veg was crunchy but had a nice seasoning to it also. The dish came with plain boiled rice, which made the dish very balanced and it meant I could use the rest of the satay sauce with it. Ooo it was good!

Lee had the grilled Spice Chicken, with a very hot (spicy) sambal. His chicken was very moist but did have a tough skin. The yellow fried rice was cooked well but didn’t have the fried crunch to it.  That’s if it was meant to be fried at all. It seemed that the rice that was not cooked fresh and re-heated. But overall he had a pleasant meal. But he did have an issue with either an orange that was dressed as a lime or an orange dressed up as a lime on his plate (see pictures) needless to say he left it well alone. Hehe.

We were apparently feeling adventurous because we went for dessert too, we tried the Snicker Bar Waffle. They got our dessert from the ice cream shop in front of the restaurant. Omg, the ice cream was too die for, properly made ice cream sweet but not too much, Mmmmm yummy! The waffle was a little overdone, to be honest; it was a little hard, not so bad after the ice cream had softened it but it was the star of the dish.

Value For Money

Good prices, slightly cheaper than the surrounding restaurants and only 10% tax and 5% service charge. Which is good for Bali it seems. It is good value compared to back home, but I suppose you get what you pay for, and the quality wasn’t 100 percent.

Atmosphere

Mood lighting was beautiful with excellent quiet and soft music was playing. The majority of the restaurant is set out outside and doesn’t have any fans but we didn’t get too hot while we were sitting there in the evening but I can imagine you would bake in the midday sun.

Lee was given a dirty folk, and that, unfortunately, does gross you out just before you eat.

The staff was friendly and very professional and not as pushy as some servers in other places.

Well what can i say? I'm complicated! Although my fundamentals, my core, what makes me, me i suppose is: Glorious food (especially the sweet stuff), the stunning beauty of nature and natural things and my love of excellent art and design.
