Bali, Indonesian and Malaysian restaurant, Sarria Sant Gervasi

You know those cold winter afternoons when the sun almost gone down before you really woken up and all you can dream of are warm summer nights. When you can sit until three in the morning in spaghetti strap dress and no need carry around a jumper.
We still have a few month until it becomes reality. So to not get totally dragged down with the winter blues I go out for some heart-warming food with exotic spices and aromas from faraway continents, to dream about some remote beach and a turquoise ocean.

To cure the winter blues this time a friend and I went to the Indonesian and Malaysian restaurant Bali located on the street La Forja 8, in the neighbourhood Sarriá – Sant Gervasi in Barcelona.

Restaurant Bali opened back in 2015 with authentic and traditional cooked Indonesian and Malaysian dishes, we can also find a selection of plates from other countries around Asia.
The exotic spices used are direct imported create real Asian flavours, even though some adjustments has been made to meet the western palate.

In kitchen of restaurant Bali we can find nutmeg, clove, lemongrass, cinnamon, ginger, garlic, turmeric, coconut and much more which are traditionally used in the Indonesian and Malaysian cuisine.

The dishes I tried Kari Ayam –chicken curry soup with prawns 6,50€ and Sambal seafood – prawns and squid with sambal belachan served with jasmine rice – 11,90€. Both were savoury and with a hint of heat.
