Bubu Seafood and Chinese Restaurant
Another editor's pick in Bali for ikan bakar is Bubu Seafood and Chinese Restaurant in Nusa Dua. A bamboo, wood and thatch venue with an outdoor pond, water features and dangling greenery, Bubu offers you the chance to pick your fish – or lobster, crab or prawns – as you walk in, decide how you want it cooked and what sauce you want with it. We love the grouper simply grilled with butter and garlic, served with white rice and spicy sweet soy sauce, tomato chilli sambal, Balinese shallots, chilli and coconut oil sambal and extra butter-garlic sauce. The meaty white flesh is delightful and the condiments offset this deeply satisfying meal perfectly.
