Potato Head Beach Club is a restaurant and bar with a pool and day beds. Jack and I went after a day of surfing for a bit of a lounge around, drinks and ended up staying on for dinner as well.
It is such a nice atmosphere with music playing and a pool to jump into when you are hot and the restaurant faces the sunset which is beautiful.The cocktails are out of this world amazing! They manage to put a special touch to every single one of their drinks which I absolutely adored about the place. For example, my Bloody Mary came with chopstick, wasabi and soya sauce, a sugar cane stick with the Mojito and they would put fresh fruit out with the fruity cocktails. We started with the Krupuk crusted Pacific Ocean squid, squid ink aioli and sweet chili (Rp90,000) and the Papua mangrove soft shell crab, steam buns, cucumber, wasbi, spring onion, coridander (Rp140,000). Both of which were served with amazing presentation and absolutely gorgeous flavours.
We shared a main of Slipper lobster roll, thousand island dressing, blue swimmer crab claws, butter lettuce, avocado (RP220,000) and some Rustic fries (Rp40,000). It was the perfect amount of picky finger food to go with all our cocktails. The lobster roll was so fresh and tasted like the sea!
A little pricey for Indonesia, but worth the cost. If you are ever in Bali, I definitely recommend going.
Once upon a time in a far far away land, there lived a man and his wife who worked, everyday without fail, at their own magical noodle soup street stall which cures all hangovers of all the village people. All the people from the village would travel from far and wide to come and try his magical noodle soup after their village parades and fetes…
Is what would be a great start to a wonderful fairy tale. Instead I will tell you about the real noodle soup stall that I am absolutely in love with.
On a beach called Double-Six Beach in Bali, Indonesia there is a street stall which call themselves Bakso Gerobak Biru, which makes such a great Indonesian meatball noodle soup. Eating this, while sitting on the beach and looking out at the waves, in the sunshine, seriously is the best hangover cure. The meatballs are the bouncy oriental type and the noodles are a mixture of egg noodles and rice noodles which comes in a broth soup. He has the best homemade chili sauce that I love to pour all over it for a bit of spice. Costs just 50p (Rp10,000).
While sitting on on Double-Six Beach you will definitely have a coconut seller come up to you. My advice – GET ONE! It costs a mere 50p (Rp10,000)A fresh young coconut that someone has cut open right in front of you is definitely better than any of those packaged drinks from the supermarket. This refreshing thing, partnered along with that gorgeous bowl of noodle soup, is the answer to all your hang over questions… best cure ever!
You just need to get a flight out there.
