Sate Babi Bawah Pohon Legian @ Bali

I love talking to cab drivers in a foreign countries because they shed light on the country's  best in terms of food. I mean there's no matter way of eating local than asking a local, right?

Sate Babi Bawah Pohon Legian was our answer to dining under a huge shady tree with bellowing smoke clouds. It's probably not as hidden a secret anymore since throngs of tourists were offloaded right after us and began a snaking queue of hungry people.


Infact Sate Babi specializes in just one item, flame grilled pork satay. A factory line is formed with basins of marinated skewered meat soaking in some broth and those fanning the satays move in such orchestrated manner, it does seem like clockwork.




At IDR 20,000 a stick and these are sold in bags of 10 sticks.


Each is skewered with just 2 pieces of meat, fanned and flamed till blackened. So shiok and I love how fat isn't skewered in and it's just pure meat.

Cheap thrill and these are possibly the best satays ever eaten because the marinade is quite the bomb, spicy without setting the throat on fire. For spice fans, these come with a side of raw chillies which set my throat alight and tear ducts flowing BUT, it was just so satisfying.

Eat like a local I wanted, eat like a local I did!
