Aside from the famous Babi Guling (Balinese Suckling Pig), deeply fried duck is probably one of the common and must-try Balinese dishes.
A vast shopping complex, Mal Bali Galeria in Kuta also houses a number of restaurants, one of which is Crispy Duck or BebekGaring.
As its name implies, Crispy Duck is a casual eating place specializing in the traditional Balinese fried duck. It has a homey atmosphere with a combination of square and circular tables paired with wooden and synthetic plastic chairs. With a dim light, Crispy Duck suggests a relaxing feeling while eating. It can accommodate around 40 guests. Menu is written in Balinese but is accompanied by pictures.
As you might guess, we had Crispy Duck on our plate (1/4KL for IDR 35,000). It already comes with 1 cup of brown rice and vegetable with a few pieces of fried nuts as side dish.
The Crispy Duck has a similar taste to fried chicken. The meat is tangy and tender that is wrapped in a crispy, golden brown skin. The vegetable side dish added flavor to the Crispy Duck.
They also have spicy condiments to choose from in case you want a fiery twist to the Crispy Duck.
Aside from the mandatory order of Crispy Duck, we tried their Seafood Ramen (IDR 40,000). It basically has 3 small pieces of shrimps, egg and bean sprouts. Trying my best to eat it, I only had 5 spoonfuls of it. The soup is basically flavored in ginger which I find a bit awkward.
