Taco Beach Mexican Grill @ Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia

This small, no frills restaurant offers up just a handful of tables with friendly people that are always eager to help. The menu is fat, offering fajitas, tostadas, quesadillas, tamales, taxes style BBQ baby back ribs and daily specials. 
The only thing separating the cozy seating area from the line cooks is a counter stacked with containers of jalapeƱo and homemade salsa. 
Taco Beach is a true mom and pop joint where the owner greets every customer that walks in
Guacamole and tortilla chips (IDR 28,000) - Traditional avocado dip with tortilla chips
You can buy salsa from the grocery store, but you won't find anything nearly as fresh and flavorful as the salsa at Taco Beach. 
Baja fish taco (IDR 45,000) - The fresh grilled fish was wrapped in palm sized grilled flour tortillas, ready to be balanced by a line of salsa and a squeeze of lime
Babi guling carnitas taco (IDR 45,000) - Those into pork should definitely sample the babi guling taco, composed of shredded pork topped with sour cream and avocado. 
And for burrito, we have decided to go with the not so conventional ...
7 layer breakfast burrito (IDR 35,000) - We relished the scrambled egg, beans, Spanish rice, sour cream, bacon and dabs of pico de gallo and hot sauce.


Smitten Dishes:
Guacamole and tortilla chips
Babi guling carnitas taco

Made's Warung @ Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia

Made's Warung has been a longtime favorite for locals and tourists. The myriad of choices may feel overwhelming and my suggestion is to go with traditional Balinese dishes which hardly go wrong. 
The restaurant is a great hang out place for visitors, thanks to its large garden area filled with tables and chairs, as well as a communal table section. 
Made Warung has two outlets, one in Kuta, another in Seminyak. Everything seems bigger and wider at the Seminyak branch, well... except for its menu. 
Soto Madura (IDR 35.000) - A bowl of heart warming soup after a 3hr flight from KL. 
Babi Sate (IDR 50.00) - Each Sate was delicately flavored with spices like coriander, cumin and turmeric. To further enhances the flavor, dip the sate into the homemade peanut sauce - You can never have too much peanut sauce on this babi.  
Gado - Gado (IDR 30.00) - Those into peanut sauce should definitely sample the Gado-Gado, which is vegetables in peanut sauce, mainly composed of assorted vegetables mixed in peanut sauce topped with some chili padi. 
Bebek Tootoo (IDR 165.000) -  A tender piece of duck tossed in traditional Balinese sauce. 
Nasi Campur Special (IDR 65.000) - This plate of nasi campur had a view of beef rendang, smoked chicken, sambal prawns and local vegetables. A very colorful view indeed!
