Mr.Dentist Chef with Chef Ketut Sumerata

Mr. Dentist Chef luckily can attend the Balinese-Lomboknese cuisine and here what i spot on; well this is actually not the first time i had Chef Ketut Sumerata’s dish, i’m pretty much known what i’m gonna had; a tasty Balinese meals!

The Appetizer

balung mekuah
Balung Mekuah is Balinese  beef ribs soup similiar to pindang tulang from Palembang. Balung means ribs and mekuah means soup, so it’s literrary translated as rbs soup; despite it’s spicy looks, it’s actually very light and i guess this just perfect to tickling the taste buds as apptizer, slurrpingly delicious!!!

Main Course :
bebek betutu spicy bali duck stew tender signatures restaurant kempinski hotel indonesia jakarta
Bebek Betutu is a Balinese dish of  roasted  duck on Balinese spices. What i really adore about Chef ketut Sumerata is how he used to use local duck instead of imported peking duck for this bebek betutu. Local breed duck gotta threat carefully to turn it into this delicacy and i really appreciate the effort he made this far.

  1. So much yummy food, Dedy. What a lucky opportunity to visit the hotel and try the food there. The salad looks the most appetising to me. It looks very fresh. You look so happy in the photo with the chef. Big smile and your teeth are very white😀

  2. Kalau punya duit rasanya pengen datang ke Signatures tiap minggu itu. Aku cuma nyobain yg Kalimantan aja.

    Meskipun sudah sering ke Bali, ternyata banyak makanan yg belum pernah aku coba kalau liat postinganmu ini bro. Ayam Mekalas dan Ayam Pelalah baru tau nih.

    Nice review and nice photos bro. I am mouthwatering now…
