Those lucky enough to experience Bali should know the taste of their food. For the rest, there is always Bumbu Bali restaurant, offering the same taste but closer to home.
The restaurant is located in Bandar Puteri Puchong, at the shop lots opposite the Giant hypermarket.
Saturday night was very busy, with a wait time of 10 minutes for a table even way past normal dinner time. Obviously a good sign for the restaurant.
We ordered the Nasi Campur Bumbu Bali (mixed rice), and Campur-Campur Tiga (three mixes). We had initially wanted to order more, luckily the waiter advised against it as the portions are rather large.
Nasi Campur Bumbu Bali is served with either potato rice or yellow rice, with beef, chicken, lamb, squid, fish, prawn, and kangkung (water spinach) belacan. It was indeed more than a full meal.
Campur-Campur Tiga is listed as an appetiser, but the portion can feed two easily. The three combination dish is made up of deep fried calamari, chicken wings, and satay on lemon grass stems.
The satay is especially good and highly recommended.
Overall the food is great, something different and yet familiar to local taste buds. It’s a bonus if the diner misses Bintang beer as they sell it here.
The meal cost a total of RM66+, pretty reasonable for an authentic taste of Bali.
