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.
Rice terrace ornamented with coconut trees and straw houses on the side of the hill.
Six of us. Missing one person... you know who.
Me and our handsome "Kicap".
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.
At last!!! We made it to Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant!
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*
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.
