After exploring the hustle and bustle around Kuta it was nice to settle down and relax to a delicious family brunch. Market Brunch at Feast offers an abundance of tempting fare, lively atmosphere, and an environment ideal for families, friends, and children. We loved the fresh seafood on offer both served at the raw counter with oysters and sashimi as well as on the traditional Balinese BBQ located on their cool outdoor terrace. Other highlights included the fresh chili crab, made to order steaks, gigantic Babi Guling, indulgent cheese selection, and fresh cakes and pastries for dessert. The mixture of traditional Balinese dishes alongside popular western and Asian dishes made for a great selection to suit all palates and their free flow champagne package is just what we craved after a busy week. A definite must visit brunch during your stay in Bali.

We couldn't visit Bali without another meal at The Plantation Grill, one of our favourite dining establishments on the island, boasting one of the most luxurious dining rooms we've visited. We decided to try all different dishes on our second visit and absolutely loved their indulgent Oysters Florentine "Marchetti Style" which were topped with Steamed Lemon Spinach, Pernod, Garlic, Parmesan & Gruyere and Gratinated in the wood oven. We also recommend the refreshing "Ceviche meets Tartare" with Raw Grouper, Wild Barramundi & Salmon, Honey-Bee Pollen and Sterling Caviar to start. For the main course we feasted on a generous, juicy Thick Cut Pork Chop, and their flavourful Whole Spit Roasted Quail which was partly boned and filled with a smoked ham, sour dough, sage and Parmesan stuffing and served on Paris Mash with a quail foie gras sauce. Dining at The Plantation Grill is always a true treat and we couldn't think of a better way to spend date night.

Yakakiya, TST's new trendy yakitori spot, boasts a mouthwatering, modern yakitori menu paired with sleek design and friendly service. We instantly loved the hipster vibe and couldn't resist ordering a feast off the extensive,  Japanese menu. We highly recommend sampling a selection from their juicy, perfectly grilled yakitori menu including the tender Iberico Ham Skewers and the indulgent and delicious Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki Rolls with Hokkaido Eggs for dipping. All the meat is top quality, creating flavorful, morish skewers that pair well with beer and sake. Other favourite dishes from the menu included their unique, signature Mixed Seafood Wafer Chirashi Sushi which combined delicious flavours and textures, the Home Made Cream Cheese Tofu which was a creamy treat on a hot summer day, and their crispy Rock Shrimp Tempura which we couldn't stop picking at. Finish your meal with a bowl of refreshing Hakata Spicy Cod Roe Cold Udon Noodle and don't forget to try a few drinks off their extensive sake menu, their Hatsumago Makiri Junmai being our favourite. Definitely somewhere you can spend hours chatting, eating, and drinking with friends enjoying not only delicious food but a fun dining experience.
