Waterlily Balinese Bistro and Ole Ole Bali) for the Balinese ambiance and food. Calling for the drinks? The poor waiter almost got confused because the kids and adults couldn't decide. Anyhow, that was cleared once they re-read the menu and then, dishes were ordered.
Between the drinks, the hot lemongrass ginger tea accompanied with a peanut biscuit worth mentioning. Mummy dearest loved the scent-taste and good that sugar came separately. The biscuit she didn't want, thus, nephew dearest crunched it down.
Another drink worth talking about was the rosehip salted plum, an intermix of sweet-sour and mild salty tastes, I loved its liveliness to refresh my throat. By now, the table was packed with the dishes and we tucked in.
Thinly sliced chicken marinated with spices and crispy fried, skin-on crispy fried potatoes and for dip-dip, the spicy sauce. This dish definitely kept the kids busy.
Nasi Kambing (Lamb) Bumbu - yellow rice, lamb cooked with green and red capsicum, shallots and spices, garnished with coriander leaves and spring onion, long bean kerabu (salad), two dipping sauces and fried fritter. A signature dish of this eatery for the the interplay of flavours.
Bali Trio - fried chicken wings, lemongrass grilled chicken, fried squids, salad and three dipping sauces. Another winner among the kids and we adults didn't mind as well.
Nasi (rice) Campur Chicken - a close call to nasi kambing bumbu, same items except for the white rice and sambal.
Food most wanted for the nigh was lamb pasta. Completely wiped out within 5 minutes the slices of lamb cooked with red onion, capsicum, Asian herbs and spices and topped with crispy fried shallots.
Though we were stuffed to the maximum, desserts I called for because like they say, feed the family and they will forever be there for you.
Shaved ice with coconut milk, diced colourful fruits and dried sugary coconut strips layered in a tall glass, each of us had a little of this "ES Campur" before tucking into the Pisang Bakar - grilled bananas with coconut milk, palm sugar syrup and coconut strips. Overly sweet but surely cleared soon.
Perhaps we called for more than enough dishes, thus, the balance packed back and mummy dearest almost fainted when half-half paid around RM300.00.
