Swich Sandwiches (Bali)

By Jakarta100bars →
Swich is a cheap sandwich joint with several locations in Seminyak/Kuta. It is friendly, tasty and healthy. Unsurprisingly, it is very popular with expatriates, especially those in their 20s. The owners themselves are trendy young mixed Indonesians with a fine sense of marketing, branding and public relations. Their website is a good testimony of that ( www.swichbali.com ). I never tried their signature sandwiches, I always prefer making my owns (around Rp50,000 for one): Overall : Recommended, I visit Swich on a pretty regular basis. The only criticism I have is that as it is small and often crowded, it can get messy when you want to order a sandwich during rush hours. You have to struggle a bit with other customers and the order may take a while to come to your table. Swich (Legian Branch) Jalan Werkudara 538, Legian Bali

Holycow! Steakhouse And Steak Hotel by Holycow! What Differences?

My title was voluntarily misleading. I don't believe there are true differences between both brands as they operate with the same concept. Both are chains of affordable steak restaurants which are lively, colorful and with a viral marketing all about Twitter and Facebook. They offer decent steaks, but it isn't the best imports or the best cooking you will find (except if you take their most expensive cuts). Holycow! was opened by self-trained Chef Afit Dwi Purwanto (who worked previously as a manager on RCTI channel) and his wife Lucy Wiryono, a TV host. So far, they have 6 branches in Jakarta, 1 in Bali and 1 in Yogyakarta. Their menu is short and features Sirloin, Ribeye and Tenderloin steaks from Australia and US. They also serve Wagyu beef. I visited the Bali branch which was very busy in the evening. Most of the customers were Indonesians, seemingly from Jakarta. I had the prime Tenderloin steak (imported from Australia) (91k +12,5% tax and service). I

Rumours (Seminyak)

By Jakarta100bars →
In Seminyak, Rumours is probably one of the best value for money restaurants you'll find. Not every dishes on the menu is a hit, but if you go for the seafood or meat, it should be decent. At night, Rumours is also a popular drinking joint albeit it closes early. They may have DJs playing occasionally but the schedule is uncertain.
