And this is one of the local food that I tried - the ayam bertutu (braised chicken)!
The restaurant is called Ayam Bertutu Khas Gilimanuk.. and honestly, most tourists might not even know bout this place. Or even if one were to pass by it, he/ she may not necessarily pay a visit.
For the shop do look really plain. And that means - very local. But that is probably a selling point too. For it serves one of the better local food around!!
The epitome of them all is of course non other than the Ayam Bertutu Gilimanuk - braised chicken with herbs like garlic, turmeric, shallots, ginger, lemongrass, chilies, bay leaves and kaffir lime leaves.
This is really for fans who love spicy food, as it is (extremely) hot and spicy. And I say that - coming from one who loves spicy food!
The meat is soft and tender and the gravy is delicious!
There's also the Ayam Bertutu Goreng Gilimanuk (fried chicken) which was also nice - though I prefer the former.
The side dish - the kangkung sambal was also yummy - and fresh!
Owh and there's also the sate lilit (satay).. which is quite a traditional Balinese dish.
I had all of these on my last day - and it being my last meal. I must say that I'm glad I had it.
