Bumbu Bali @ Bandar Puteri Puchong, KL

I'm sure most of you have heard about this restaurant which serves Balinese food in Puchong as I have seen so many blog entries about it. I can't claim to be an expert on Balinese food since it's one of the places I have never been so whatever little knowledge I have is garnered from my reading. Although this restaurant bears the same name as the famous Bumbu Bali located in Bali, it has no connections whatsover to the original place. The original Bumbu Bali is famous for it's cooking school and if you go to any bookshop in KL, you'll be able to see the recipes from the book,
The Food of Bali.

The restaurant in Puchong has a very extensive menu which offers Balinese food and Western meals with a Balinese twist to them. My only complaint about the menu is I thought it didn't have enough Balinese food items and the emphasis was more on Western items. After a while, everything is the menu tends to taste the same as they predominantly use the same kind of marinade for the meat, poultry and seafood which is barbequed over a coconut husk fire.

We tried to pick the more genuine Balinese food items hence I ordered the Nasi Ayam Betutu (RM19.50++). My chicken was roasted with numerous spices such as turmeric, ginger, galangal, onion, garlic, kencur salam leaf and chillies. Traditionally it's served at wedding ceremonies. I liked the chicken which was full of flavours. Only problem was my portion of chicken versus the rice served was disproportionate hence after a while, everything was too salty for me when I ran out of rice.

To get a taste of all their specialities, Splashie Boy had their Nasi Campur Special(RM28.50++) which came with Sate Lilit, Grilled Chicken, Grilled Prawns, Grilled Fish and Grilled Cuttlefish. You have a choice between two types of rice, the sweet potato rice and Nasi Kuning (Yellow Rice). I had the sweet potato rice which was nothing special as they had just mixed the cubed sweet potatoes in. We both liked the Sate Lilit which is minced seafood paste wrapped around lemongrass skewers. Theirs definitely look much better than my version. We thought the fish was very nice and tender while the prawns were not that fresh.
