We spent almost a full day 2 in Ubud/Tegal Lalang during our trip to Bali that we had quite some time to enjoy the view & some of their famous eateries. In this post, I'll be sharing 2 more eateries that we've experienced & my thoughts about the food & ambiance at each place.
We actually made our reservations for lunch at Teras Padi Café, Tegal Lalang, all for the ambiance (request for gazebo area)! Our cousin, Kris, told us to experience lunch amidst the paddy terrace at this place, something that you'll definitely not find in Peninsular Malaysia.
There are several cafes & restaurants over-looking the paddy terrace here at Tegal Lalang, but I reckon this cafe may be one of the better ones (else my cousin wouldn't have recommended it!). The one thing about such "touristy" area is that you'll have to pay an 'entrance fee' to get into/pass through the area. We had to pay Rp5,000 per vehicle, I think (1 time entry fees).
Frankly speaking, the taste of food at this café is nothing to boast. They have a limited menu as well, great for those who are simple, indecisive & plain hungry. You'll know what you want/don't want at a quick glance!
Without much trouble to decide, we quickly ordered our food & drinks before spending some time snapping photos :P
Will I make another trip here the next time? Hmm...maybe not so soon. I need to visit other places in Bali since Bali is actually such a large 'city'/state!

On that same day, we had dinner at the renowned Dirty Duck Diner, Ubud. It's called Bebek Bengil or Dirty Duck in Indonesian because the restaurant's "first guests" were ducks that walked into the place on a rainy day with their muddy webbed feet (if I remember the story correctly). That name became the restaurant's name since it started in 1990, serving the original crispy duck.
