Favorites Places in Seminyak

Sunday, September 25, 2016

I’ve heard wonderful things about Bali from listening to my friends’ stories and reading countless travel blogs for a number of years now. To be honest, Bali wasn’t even on my radar, but me being me, I still put it on my bucket list just to see what the fuss was all about. A few months ago, I found myself in this island where I stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. And it was amazing. It turns out to be one of my favorite destinations in Asia. Without further ado, here are my favorite places in Seminyak.
1. Revolver Espresso

Our favorites from their menu are the Revolver (poached eggs, smashed avocado, house relish on sour dough) and Double barrel (folded scrambled eggs, bacon, tomato, basil, parmesan, sour dough). They offer great coffee, mouthwatering food, and a relaxed ambience with a hipster vibe. Hidden in the busy street of Seminyak, Revolver Espresso is my go-to breakfast destination. As a bonus, every nook and cranny of Revolver is instagrammable.

2. La Plancha Beach Bar and Restaurant

This vibrant Spanish beach bar and restaurant is another favorite of the tourists. It is famous for their large bean bags, multihued umbrellas, and good music. La Plancha is a perfect place to sip drinks while listening to the waves crash on the shore and watching the magical sunset. Better come here before the sun comes down because this place can become jam-packed.

3. Motel Mexicola

I am a big fan of Mexican food, so I made sure to pay a visit here, and boy, it didn’t disappoint. I loved their quesadilla and it was the best I’ve had in my life! Tried the fish and crab tacos, too, and though the portions were small, they were satisfying. Motel Mexicola has a unique decoration and great party atmosphere. The sounds were earsplittingly fun. This bar is for a good night out, however be ready to spend.

4. Sisterfields Restaurant

When you enter Sisterfields, you will love the white-teal palette, wood decorations and the bright dining space, lit up with tungsten lamps. The breakfast burrito was incredible: the “meat juice” bursts in your mouth along with its perfect seasoning. Their carte du jour also includes fresh pastries, salads and sandwiches. Sisterfields is one of the best spots in the heart of Seminyak.

5. Potato Head Beach Club

Potato Head is attractively set across the beach frontage with sophisticated restaurants and bars overlooking the palm trees and the sparkling large pool. We headed there for a couple of drinks and to enjoy our last sunset in Bali. The price was ridiculously expensive, though. Just like La Plancha, the place can become packed, so be there early.

6. Warung Nia Restaurant

Bali has a wide variety of local street-side warungs and fine dining establishments. According to some of my trusted travel sites, Warung Nia has the best pork ribs and I totally agree! It was delicious and cooked just right, though the sauce was too sweet for my liking. I would highly recommend Warung Nia for a casual and inexpensive meal. (Sorry, I forgot to take a photo :D)

7. Seminyak Lagoon All Suites Hotel

Seminyak Lagoon is a quiet and romantic hotel away from the hub of the city, suitable for those who prefer privacy. From among the hotels I’ve stayed in Bali, this is the one I fancied the most. This budget boutique villa has a spacious room and toilet, and comes with a mini kitchen. Their staff is the friendliest and most helpful that we have encountered in Bali. Two thumbs up for their great service and hospitality.

In Bali, you won’t be short of dining options. This paradise is definitely not overrated. Is Bali worth visiting? Yes, of course! The Balinese people are so nice; and every corner of Bali is postcard worthy. Don’t forget to bring your cameras!
