Somehow, Bali has many version of babi guling depends on its
kitchen. Different kitchens will have different spices and different cooking
techniques. For example, many kitchen in Bali use turmeric or coconut water to
get the skin’s look glowing, but some kitchen use soy sauce, ketchup, Sprite,

Another Balinese Traditional Food:
The one that I tried last time was babi guling from Gianyar.
This restaurant is going viral recently, so I am curious how is the taste.
Babi Guling Pande Egi is located in Br. Pande Beng, Gianyar
Bali. To get to Babi Guling Pan Degi, we need to go through the main road and
enter a small road that is winding and unpaved. Even though the journey is not
pleasant, Babi Guling Pande Egi offers a rice field view with a village ambience.
Unfortunately, when I came to the place, the rice fields were not in a
nice condition so I was not happy seeing this.
So How Was The Flavor?
My order at that time was the Babi Guling Spesial/special
suckling pig. The price for one portion is 36 thousand rupiah, or around 2.29
Try This Balinese Recipe:
In one portion, there is suckling pork, lawar, pork skin
crackers, and several types of fried foods. Unfortunately, even though at
regular warung babi guling they usually serve gravy on the special menu, here
they don't. If we want to add more gravy, we have to pay again.
So far, the seasoning for the suckling pig is quite tasty. The variety of spices has a rich taste. The suckling pork skin is
also crispy, with not too much fat.
If you stay in Denpasar, you must visit this:
The downside may be that the fried food feels hard and is
difficult to bite. The oret/blood sausage menu also tasted bland and nothing
special, with a mushy texture that wasn't pleasant to the mouth.
If you are curious about the viral Pande Egi suckling pig, you can come straight to Banjar Pande Beng Gianyar Bali.
I recommend the suckling
pig menu with whole green coconut ice or passion fruit ice to freshen your
mouth after eating fatty suckling pig.
