seems likea relatively dry rub that’s cooked over an open flame and fan so that you getsome of the charcoal flavor you taste a ton of charcoal chilies and somesweetness as well it’s really good so I did pretty good job that means it’sreally good everything together was amazing the only thing left to bedesired was like I wanted six pounds more of pork. Pork isn’t super popular in all of Indonesia since Indonesia is a primarily Muslim country they don’t eat pork butin Bali it’s predominantly Hindu when pork is a huge part of the cuisine sobabi Guling is one of Bali’s claim to fame and for good reason it’s reallygood we’re here at the next Warung which has been highly recommended not onlyonline but by one of our Instagram followers thank you so much forsuggesting this place this dish is gonna be a little bit more adventurous I meanRyan’s definitely not gonna try this one it is traditional Balinese fish headsoup here at Warung Mak Beng they have a set menu so you come here and you getthree things 45 Indonesian Rupiah you get nasi or rice you have a reallyamazing looking piece of fried mackerel this is the cooked sambal which isdifferent from the one we saw earlier and then fish soup I got a fish cheekwhich is like the highly coveted piece of fish meat so I’m super excited aboutthat really clean flavors so it’s reallyfresh tasting the fish is a tiny tiny bit dry but it’s really hard to avoidthat when you’re cooking a whole fish fillet like this but the outside isreally nice and crispy extremely flavorful and not too greasy and theneverything just tastes like clean simple flavors that’s what I love the mostabout food is when it tastes clean. so the soup itself is pretty simple it is the fishhead cucumbers which are cooked with white radish and then everything slowlysimmered with turmeric which is where you get this really nice color from gingershallots and chilies but what I’m really excited for is to try this fish head solet me get some of the cheek out that is a huge piece of cheek this is what you come here for oh my godso good the cheek is like the most tender thing I’ve ever eaten in myentire life when the broth is relatively mild I thought it was gonna be reallyspicy but it just accompanies the fish really well it doesn’t overpower itthere’s actually a little bit of sweetness to it too so I actually triedanother really popular Indonesian soup called bakso but I tried that in ourInstagram stories so follow us on Instagram go to the Bali highlight andyou can see what I thought of bakso as well this place is amazing it’s rightacross from the beach in northern Sanur so if you’re having like a beach daydefinitely stop by Warung Mak Beng yeah. so we arehere at the Sanur night market this is pretty much one of my favorite venues totry local cuisine is a night market you just get people who are cooking everynight out of passion from their carts there’s always long queues for the goodstuff so you know it’s good right away and lets go. so I know you guys wouldbe mad at me if I didn’t try Nasi Campur so here is my plate essentially amixed rice dish with a bunch of different proteins and vegetables intheir own sauces and spices it’s a pretty similar thing to other SoutheastAsian countries with a bunch of mixed foods right next to white rice so I’mreally excited to try the Balinese version so I want you guys to leave acomment down below and tell me what I’m eating because I know some of the thingsbut every nasi campur is a little bit different so it’s really difficult tokeep track one thing I do know these amazinglittle caramelized spiced peanuts are on my plate and these are so good I’m just the biggest fan of mixed platesimilar to Penang when I had that amazing nasi kandar it’s bringing back all thoseflavors for me my mouth is just watering for more I have chicken, eggthere is beef there’s eggplant on the plate and I couldn’t ask for much morein a dish really so another thing you’ll notice when you are a Western touristsin Bali in particular they won’t always give you all of the spicy dishes becausea lot of people get what they call to be Bali Belly and it’s basically like it’sand upset stomach from eating too much spicy food but if you do want to tastethe authentic versions make sure you tell them you want the food spicy whichis what I did and it’s hands down some of the most flavorful food I’ve had in areally long time thank you I’m not great with my pronunciation sothis lovely lady’s helping me out this is Jaje Bali yes one of youmessaged us on instagram and said that this was a must-tryfor Balinese sweets so I asked for one of everything all right I’m gonna trythe tapioca first because it looked at reminds me of those little jelly wormslike the sour jelly worms rolled in coconut mmm really good mild flavorrolled in like a nice unsweetened coconut that one wasn’t too sweet butI’m gonna go try the others as well now this one piqued my interest because Ilove sweet rice dessert this looks like sticky rice rolled in coconut this is so good really good thank you somuch I have a sweet potato one which I’m really excited to trynow that texture is much different than the other ones it is like a sweet potatowrapped in a gelatinous sweet casing with coconut as well what I really likeabout this is that it’s not overwhelmingly sweet to like sugarypowdery desserts give me a headache but this is seriously perfect I would highlyrecommend this to anyone who has sweet tooth while you’re in Bali as usual guysto stop pretty much nearing food coma everything we tried today was

reallyamazing my sweet tooth is so strong that I got a sesame ball and a fried donutfor the ride home but that’s pretty much it if you liked this video give it a bigthumbs up we’ll see you guys in the next one. Seeya! You guys always ask for Ryan to try stuff so here we go Turmeric? Turmeric. I’m not a big fan of turmeric.
