Balinese Cuisine – A Complex, Yet Mouthwatering Cuisine

Located on the western end of the Lesser Sundar Islands is the beautiful Indonesian province of Bali. This volcanic island is known for its pristine beaches, rich culture, luscious mountainous plains, and wide range of iconic attractions and landmarks, making it one of the most favored tourist destinations in Southeast Asia. When you travel to Indonesia, a great chain of hotels and resorts to accommodate yourself in is Starworld Indonesia, which has hotels and resorts in Indonesia’s hottest destinations.

There are many exciting features of Bali’s culture that make it truly intriguing, and one such feature is its cuisine. Combining meats, fish, fresh vegetables and a multitude of spices and herbs, this cuisine is known for delivering exotic and zesty flavors. Considered to be a sub-sect of Indonesian cuisines, Balinese cuisine offers a host of dishes and meals that are sure to keep you asking for more.

Influenced by traditional Chinese and Indian cuisines, the philosophy behind Balinese cuisine is quite simple; use the best and freshest basic components. The basic components of almost all Balinese dishes are spices, fragrance seeds and herbs, and fresh vegetables. These components are added to the main features of the dish (which is mostly chicken, pork, rice, and seafood), to give each dish a sensational flavor. Balinese chefs also use various kinds of seasoning such as shrimp paste, palm sugar, basa gede (a spicy paste), and sambal mantah (a mix of spices and sauces), to bring out vibrant flavors to add more tang and zest to the dishes. Using these ingredients and various traditional methods, Balinese cuisines offers a wide range of dishes to please any palate. Some of the most iconic Balinese dishes include Opor Ayam; a delicious chicken dish with vegetables and curry, Nasi Campur; a dish of tempered rice with an assortment of meats and spices, Babi Guling; a dish of succulent roasted pork, Tuna Sambal Matah; a dish with tuna accompanied with a spicy paste, and Bambu Bali Fish; a dish with chunks of fish cooked in coconut milk and served with rice.
