Bali in June: Tegallalang Rice Terrace and Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant


Growing up in a small town on the border of Thailand and Malaysia, it's not uncommon to see a sea of paddy fields on the sides of road in the Rice Bowl State.

When I was briefed about our schedule of visiting Tegalalang Rice Terrace on day 3, the picture that first came into my mind was mountains and mountains of terraced rice fields which I imagined would be spectacular to be looked at.

So after almost an hour drive from Tirta Empul Temple, we eventually reached Tegallalang Village located on the north of Ubud. It was a huge blessing to have a tour guide to drive us around in Bali, honestly speaking. The roads are so narrow and winding that it was exhausting to even just sit in the car doing nothing.

And in the end, we settled for a scenery not so spectacular yet nice enough to click some snaps.

My super-hungry-so-please-make-it-fast face. A drooling duck feast awaiting us at Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant and I just couldn't wait a second longer to shove them down my throat. Like a barbarian, muahahaha xD

One last groupie before we left.

A very pinkish cafe that caught my eyes. It'd certainly be lovely to sit back and enjoy a cuppa overlooking the rice terrace across the road.

There are also a variety of seafood and other meats and veggies on the menu, other than duck dishes. We ordered three smoked,  two deep-fried, one grilled, and a prawn dish for our Russian friend.

Fruit punch with sour kick. Are you pondering what I'm pondering?! *eyeing on the red cherries*

Its dipping sauces range from mild, medium hot to extra hot. I particularly liked the medium hot one with tiny shreds of torch ginger flower and red onion.

My deep-fried duck with steamed rice, curried long beans and some fresh veggies on the side. The meat was dried, crisp and crunchy, and not so salty compared to the smoked duck. It was not exceptional good but just averagely good in my opinion.
