Melbourne Bites # 5: Warung Agus

Balinese food in Melbourne – who would’ve thought? But this place really is a testament to how a city can cook up the most delectable food simply by scooping into its melting pot of cultures. A meal here promises a sensation for the tastebuds – every dish is packed full of flavour and perfectly executed. The pork satay is exceptional as is the gado gado. The accompanying sambals offered with every meal pack a real punch and cuts through the richness of coconut milk that is used quite liberally in Balinese cooking. But the standout here is the Babi Guling – a slow roasted pork dish with oh so sinful crackling. The meat is perfectly cooked and the accompanying sauce intriguing and addictive. A definite must try.

Should try "Betutu" steamed duck in spices, not sure whether they have still taking order for this..but in Bali, it is one of the have to try dishes apart from Babi guling..I actually prefer Betutu compared to Babi Guling..
