When we talk about affordable Balinese food in Kuala Lumpur, we think generally think about Bumbu Bali, Waterlily or Ole ole Bali. In Bali today, you can eat extremely well, and choose from a variety of national cuisines. Street food in Bali is cheap enough and you would probably have to pay three times for the same quality of food, in any of the world’s major cities. Add to this, for no extra charge, some of the most magnificent dining settings that one could ever imagine, e.g. set against the back drop of some lush Ubud padi fields etc. it really makes one feel like flying straight out to Bali to get one some fried Bebek! Well, one can’t always do what one wants, so in light of not being able to travel to Bali on a whim just to eat my favourite dish, let me say rather, that there is a new Balinese restaurant in town. It’s name is Ori Bumbu.
Start off with the Chef’s recommendation of lovely refreshing Balinese drinks. The Teh Serai and the Air Bandung are great choices to go with your meal. Then pick your mains, from some moderately priced Balinese sets that possess food- enlivening flavorings including palate-stimulating chiles, fragrant coriander, biting garlic, pepper, lemongrass, tamarind, and ginger. At this trendy, casual eatery one should try the Dory fish that is barbecued in pandan leaf as it apparently comes all the way from New Zealand. Also the bebek (deep fried duck) set that is harmoniously paired with lemongrass, and chili sauces that is so super addictive, down to the last bite of crispy skin. The owner has set up shop in Section 17 for a mere 8 days and so, you can imagine that they might still be improving on their menu. However, this place should satisfy that Balinese food craving of yours for now, like it did mine, on this rainy afternoon.
