The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Seafood on the beach @ Teba Mega Cafe, Jimbaran (Bali)

When we were in Bali a few weeks ago for a wedding, one of the things I wanted us to do was enjoy a good seafood dinner and the sunset on Jimbaran Beach. The owner of the bed and breakfast we stayed at recommended Teba Mega Cafe, and we met a friend and her family for dinner there. It's a straightforward set-up: pick out your order by choosing the freshest-looking fish and seafood at the entrance facing the parking lot (prices are not displayed, so ask for the price which is based on weight), proceed to the beachside tables, order a drink and then wait for the food to come out.

Our seafood feast. Rice, stirfried leafy greens and condiments were included with our dinner:

Grilled King Prawns - a popular item with the other little 2-year-old boy at the table:

Grilled Squid - popular with our not-so-little boy:

We also enjoyed two whole Grilled Red Snappers, deboned but with heads attached at my request:

We all enjoyed the food, the company and the setting very much. All the seafood and (non-alcoholic) drinks cost less than 400,000IDR to feed four adults and two kids. Teba Mega Cafe is highly recommended by me!
