We celebrated Jason’s birthday 5 days earlier than the actual day as most of us aren’t free on the 10th. I came up with the suggestion to have lunch here at Ole Ole Bali after reading some good reviews from other food blogs.
Ole Ole Bali is famed for it’s Balinese food, with the place decorated as close to some place in Bali as well.

To be frank, although I have been to Bali for our honeymoon, I don’t remember tasting any real authentic Balinese cuisine (yeah shame on me, I didn’t even try their famous Babi Guling!). While waiting, we went on ahead to order Grilled Chicken Wings, served with roast potatoes and prove to be a great appetizer.
Their Barley Lime (RM18/jug) is very refreshing and can be share among 5-6 pax.
As the gang gradually arriving, we ordered another one of their appetizer, the Ole Ole Trio (RM38) that consists of Ole Ole BBQ Wings, Cumi-Cumi (Deep Fried Kalamari) and Sate Lilit serves with Sambal Matah, Sambal Terasi and Tartar Sauce. I like the Sate Lilit a lot as it’s basically fish cake wrapped around a stick of lemongrass and almost taste like our local Otak-Otak.

Not too sure of their serving sizes, almost all of us opt to share a plate of their main. Leanne and Melon ordered Kambing Bumbu, Stir-Fried Lamb Cutlet with Chili and Spices. We are glad that we stick to sharing their food, because the serving is huge!
Me and May shared the Ayam Betutu Set, which basically translate to Balinese Roast Chicken with Lemongrass Marinate. The marinate is pack with a variety of spices, and the half a chicken pick up all of it’s taste. The chicken although is grilled, is tender and succulent. The dishes comes with yellow rice, stir-fried kangkung, Balinese anchovy crackers and a side salad.

While most of the rest order their Nasi Campur Ole Ole, a hearty combination of Balinese grilled Lemongrass Prawn, Squid, Fish, and a choice of beef or chicken rendang and Sate Lilit, served with Sauteed Kangkung.

Overall, I find that the cuisines are very nice and with the matching ambience, it’s a perfect place to have lunches or dinners. You’re sure to be Balinize the instant you step in, or even before as most of the gang dress like they are in Bali yesterday (like Leanne and Melon).
However while the food is good, the service could be better and the place could be more baby friendly. They only have booster seat provided for children which is sometimes not that convenient as there’s no way to secure to booster seat to the chair. I wouldn’t mind dropping by again, perhaps bringing Kayden’s own booster seat.
Anyway, it was a nice lunch and good get together. The next one coming up at the end of the month.
