Balinese Traditional Cuisine

Ayam or Bebek Betutu
Betuitu is a distinct traditional Balinese technique of cooking chicken (Ayam Betutu) or duck (bebek Betutu). Traditionally cooked in a pit of embers for up to twenty-four hours, Ayam or Bebek Betutu is a roasted poultry that has been stuffed with spices and wrapped in banana leaves and coconut husks. This exceptional menu features a lavish smoky look of the duck or chicken, cooked to a “melty” softness and slathered inside and out with a pleasantly charred basa gede, lingering with hints of lemongrass, turmeric and ginger.

Babi Guling
Perhaps Bali's most famous delicacy is Babi Guling or the roasted suckling pig. Babi guling is an all-time favorite, consisting of spit-roast pig stuffed with rich traditional spices and vegetable mixes such as cassava leaves, slowly ‘rolled’ (hence its name, guling means ‘to roll’) over  a coal fire. The crisp brown skin is prized, while the meat is a tender and juicy treat. At first the dish was a communal treat cooked only during special festivities and ceremonies, but now babi guling can be found widely served at warungs and restaurants specializing in this succulent dish.
