Guys, I know we’ve been a little quiet lately, but I swear we have a good excuse! 😅

We’ve just come back from a brand new edible adventure, this time through the island of Bali, Indonesia.

Our mission?

To dig deep and discover as many traditional dishes as we could possibly eat over 12 delicious days.

On foot we explored the  regions of Legian, Tabanan, Ubud and Seminyak, discovering busy morning markets (pasar pagi) tucked away in the back streets, and unveiling a world of fresh vegetables, tropical fruits and fragrant spices just waiting to be cooked.

We found street food vendors galore, dishing up daily offerings of Indonesian goodies like bakso (meatball soup) and gado-gado (blanched vegetable salad with yummy peanut sauce).

With every new discovery, our curiosity just kept growing…

What more deliciousness could Bali possibly have in store?
