Rustic Dinner at Watercress Batubelig

#Bali, Watercress has become one of the Bali well-known café for the past few years, located in jalan Batubelig – Kerobokan close by to the Seminyak tourism area. Small rustic design café with warm and casual ambiance that serves good, healthy and fresh food. When the night comes they turn this small café into Watercress Malam which cater different menu from the day. Every dishes here come with such a generous portions and since they have some wide menu selections, I think it’s a good idea to choose some from the list and share it.

This dish was served with mashed sweet potato that has sweet and buttery taste and balanced with some salad on the side. I like the balance flavor of their salad it has sweet, fruity, cheesy, zesty flavors at once and with some sesame seeds that adds rich smoky and nutty flavor to this salad.

As for the pork belly was so succulent covered with thick, pungent, sweet and salty sauce.

And talk about their kids menu it also comes with quite generous portion, I picked one of my son’s favorite dishes Baked Mac & Cheese (55K) it was so creamy and cheesy also topped with bread crumbs that adds crunchiness to this dish. The Baked Mac & Cheese also served with some salads, really a balance and comforting dish for kids 🙂
