BaliFeel @ Bangsar South


Balinese restaurants are springing up all across the Klang Valley; thankfully, there haven't been any really terrible ones so far.


Kenangan BaliFeel, the basic rice platter, comprising nasi uduk, sate lilit, cumi-cumi, lalap, sambal & chicken wing. Looked less lavish than the spreads at outlets such as Ole-Ole Bali, but it hit the right marks: the rice was warm and moist, the sambal was fiery, and the accompaniments were flavourful enough to make us finish everything.


The menu listed this as ayam penyet, but it seemed like regular grilled chicken. No complaints; the meat was succulent, well-marinated and piping-hot.


Lele Penyet (fried flattened catfish). Fresh and tender.


Tofu, tempe & egg. Not flattened, despite what the menu promised.


Es Teller. Packed with watermelon and other fruits in syrup.


BaliFeel,
The Sphere, Bangsar South.

  15. The food here is nice. It used to be my favourite. Until one day i needed to cancel and change my order (just after 30seconds of ordering) and they said i cannot do that just because they have already keyed the bill into the computer system (not even because the order has been prepared or in preparation). No restaurant is as stupid as this one.
