Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurants

I visited the original branch of Bebek Tepi Sawah in Ubud a few years ago. I was disappointed at that time as it was expensive, overcrowded with groups of tourists, and the taste was really unexceptional. I blacklisted it in my mind and considered it a tourist trap. In the past few years, the brand has opened outlets everywhere in malls in Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Bali. I thought that the management may have changed and that it would be worth having another try.

Le Seminyak Balinese Restaurant (Jakarta)

Seminyak is a Balinese restaurant located on Jalan Cipete Raya, not far from Tapas Movida. The place is clean, big and comfortable, with a big parking. It seemed popular with Indonesians in particular, especially girls doing " Arisan ". The waiters are wearing a Balinese uniform, the music is Balinese, and most dishes are Balinese. Their signature dish is the Grilled Fish, Jimbaran-Style. I tried the Grilled Duck (Bebek Goreng) for 87,800++Rp. The duck was OK, but I was very disappointed with the sambal which was not spicy at all. I had the same kind of duck a day earlier in Pak Slamet Warung and it was much much better (even though cheaper). Overall : Seminyak is one of the rare restaurants in Jakarta with a Balinese menu. I recommend it if you are looking for a clean, well-decorated place for a lunch or dinner in Cipete area. The WIFI was pretty fast (up to 250kb/second).
