June 21 Balinese Lunch of Wet and Fried Chicken

This is the trademark for the restaurant I visited today. I was told that this guy is a comedian. He is the face of the Ayam Betutu Restaurant. Kinda weird but the food is good.

Today for lunch I went to Ayam Betutu, a local eatery in Jimbaran, Bali, Indonesia. My Uber driver recommended this place and he recommended that I eat fried and wet chicken. Sounds weird. Wet chicken actually means chicken in broth. This broth was not just any broth. Balinese food is spiced wonderfully and this chicken was exquisite. As a side dish, we had water spinach, fried peanuts and some kind of marinated onion salad with rice. All meals come with rice. The onion salad was the bomb! Everything was very good. I enjoyed this Balinese meal.

Betutu is a steamed or roasted chicken or duck and is typically spicy or extra spicy, made with raw onion marinated in spicy red chile and coconut oil. This dish takes 24 hours to cook. Historically this dish was brought as a gift from the Balinese to other parts of Indonesia. You can bring this to my house anytime! This dish is delish.
