Bumbu Bali, Puchong

i have heard so much about this place but never seen it until stumbling upon it recently. my dining companion wanted shabu-shabu initially but somehow i managed to convince him to have balinese instead. as the establishment doesn’t serve pork, no babi guling for me then!

the decor of the place brought back fond memories of bali, esp. with the teak furniture and buddha paintings. however a flip through the menu tells me that none of my favourite balinese food such as gado-gado, common nasi campur, itik bertutu are available even if they have variations. but most of the menu had grilled meat, whether served in a western manner, or with rice and other accompaniments. started off with a green apple splash, which was refreshing despite being a little too sweet.

i chose the “Nasi Campur BumbuBali” with the beef rendang while he chose the “Nasi Campur Be Pesan” (Grilled Fish mixed rice). the servings was rather large though i thought the ratio of rice (with two cubes of sweet potatoes) to the rest (beef, grilled fish, grilled prawns, grilled squid, sate lilit, fried kangkung, cucumber & pineapple) was a little skewed as I ran out of rice very quickly. but the beef rendang was very good, aromatic and tender. and the sate lilit (minced seafood paste wrapped around a lemongrass stalk & grilled) was easily the best item i had that night. Fish was very fresh and tasted well marinated with the balinese spices that gave the food a distinctive taste. the prawns & squid were less fresh, judging from the texture as the spices definitely disguised the taste well. the accompanying keropok with ikan bilis and peanuts was a little too hard and tasteless for my liking so i didn’t eat much of that. found my cucumber & pineapple salad thingy serving too chunky as well.

overall, thumbs up for the generous servings and many variations. the sate lilit is a must try! esp. enjoyed having sambal matah (raw shallot & lemongrass sambal) again.
