Bossy Lunch

This afternoon, I decided to go pretty far to eat some lunch. I then thought about my cravings for a good, juicy burger last night. Therefore, I went to the Northern part of Kuta, flipping some mind, running into some badass burger shop. It’s called Bo$$ Man Burger (yes, S using the dollar signs).The bar was located in Jalan Kayu Cendana No. 8B, Seminyak, Bali (precisely located besides Sisterfields)

I found this place on Instagram and instantly thrilled to give it a try! I ordered the Gangster burger and some fries as the side dish. But there were of course some other kick-ass burgers to choose from, and some flippin’ good fries to accompany with.

At first, I thought the burger will be heavily topped with mayo and sauces, too much going on with the burger but I tell you what, It was DELICIOUS! The buns were perfectly toasted, the patty was seasoned and char-grilled to perfection, the mayo is not overpowering, the cheese is melted to the most silky and smooth texture, the lettuce and tomatoes are fresh what more could you ask for? The fries and the chilli sauce here are the superstars of this shop. Fries were fried to excellence, seasoned just right, salty but not so salty that you can’t even enjoy it. The chilli sauce tastes pretty much identical to what all Indonesians would get in a restaurant, sambal! Brilliant isn’t it? The fresh and somewhat garlic-y aftertaste of the sambal and the mild hotness combined together is like a match-made in food heaven!

It’s truly the most wonderful dining experience when it comes to burger. I hope that this shop stays in the longest possible days and seasons, but most of all, consistent. They HAVE TO maintain their consistency in order for them to acquire more costumers, making them even more popular not just on Instagram, but all over Bali. Although, truthfully saying, you have to pay the bill that probably would be the pain in the ass for some people. I, atleast spent 100k+($10++) already on both the burger and fries (no drink), but it was worth the taste and wait.

Bali Breakfast Club

There’s always room for breakfasts and brunches in Bali. On Sunday morning, I went to a place called ‘Kelly’s Warung’ where they sell healthy and low-calorie dishes.It was located in Bingin Beach, one of the farthest and most hidden places in Uluwatu, Bali.

From Pitaya Bowls to Hummus and Tempeh Wraps, all was delightfully fulfilling to me. I was about to order Pitaya Bowl for my brunch, unfortunately I didn’t get to try their well-known entree back then(sighs). However, I ordered the Bowl of Muesli which was mounted with slices of ripe and sweet banana, topped with low-fat Greek Yoghurt, perfection. I thought It would be too heavy for a brunch, but it isn’t! It tastes so delicately, yet fresh, and creamy but not too creamy (because of the Greek Yoghurt), ultimately guilt-free!

After finishing my main course, I ordered a smoothie which consists of: several strips of mint leaves, sliced mangoes, some cut up bananas, all mixed up with low-fat almond milk. It was unbelievably delicious, the little hint of mint sips through the entire smoothie so mildly, the bananas act like a sweetener in this drink, no sugar added.

In addition to my brunch experience, I got to enjoy the view of the Indian Ocean while munching on my Muesli 😀

Brunching on the beach was definitely one of the most marvelous things I’ve ever done in the Island of Jewels! I will definitely come back to this place If I have the chance. For those of you who live near Bingin Beach, or you’re craving for a good, healthy brunch with a view, you MUST come to this place. The price ranges from $2-$8 (20k – 80k IDR) for both food and beverages. Don’t worry, you won’t feel any guilt in paying the bills hahaha!

A GROOVY TRIP TO BALI

Bali has become one of the most visited island by most foreigners outside Indonesia. This can be one of the impressions when it comes to the name of our country. 3,27 million foreigners in estimation, visited Bali in 2013. Statistics said that over 300k foreigners came to Bali every month in 2015. Can you imagine how popular this island became to the world? It indeed is undoubtedly popular.

I planned a trip years ago with my best friends to sojourn Bali for a week, and it is finally executed this year. We were discussing about where we were headed, how’s the budget, where to stay, and so on. I offered them to stay in my house for the whole week as the replacement of hotel in Bali, it was more reliable and much cheaper than to stay for a week in a hotel. But they rejected my offering considering there’s my dad inhabiting the house that they feel unwelcoming because they didn’t know my dad, and vice versa. Therefore, they booked a hotel near the airport in Kuta called, H Sovereign Hotel. Twas a chic hotel styled in the middle of Kuta, cheap, narrow to every places possible, good choice HAHAHA.

We then booked a ticket with some kind of hassle, because of the price ranges! So, we decided to choose a flight which was pretty late that our arrival was at 11pm Bali timezone. We set up the meeting place in the airport but no one shows up in our group chat telling where they were at that time (this is funny I’m serious). FINALLY, we gathered up together grabbing some meals for our pre-flight dinner, talking about how’s life going, what was the updates we have not been told (pretty much gossiping I’m not gonna lie). It is now the time to flew to Ngurah Rai (which was the name of the International airport in Bali), got picked up by a driver, were dropped off to the places we were supposed to stay.

In Bali, our itineraries were pretty much sucks, but at least we’ve got some fun times bonding together after such long long time! We went to several hip places such as Motel Mexicola, Karma Kandara, Finn’s Beach Club, you name it (if you’re a Balinese please do suggest in below places we should visit for the next upcoming trip). I kept in my mind this one place called Nasi Pedas Ibu Andika as a highlight of our trip to Bali this year. This restaurant can be procured as a restaurant with the spiciest, most tastiest (yes I put most I know) food ever. It has a variety of food that pleases your taste buds, and specifically the spiciest sambal in which it was made as a compliment to the rice dish by Ibu Andika. If any of you were planning to come to Bali anytime soon, you MUST try the rice dish in this place, it was DELICIOUS.

Here’s a pic of the rice dish at Nasi Pedas Ibu Andika:

The legendary rice dish in Bali!

Despite all of these fun stuffs, I know that I can do nothing without God who guide me throughout this trip from start to the end. I was assured by His grace that I was safe and sound while doing my summer trip to Bali this year. Therefore, I thank Him for every second that He had paid for me to keep me safe from harassing moments, capturing His creation in the midst of an unrelenting tongue-twisted week. All glory to God the one and only Lord of all lords.
