Bali (the Lotus Cafe)

One of our stops was in the beautiful city of Ubud in Bali.  An absolutle gem, shopping, lots of monkies and great food.  You might have seen it in Eat, Pray, Love.

We tried a traditional Balinese platter with about 8 different items.

One that was my favorite was the tempeh. Tempeh is fermented soybeans often pressed into a patty.
What mad this so different was that is was loose, but held together and a light sweet glaze. Allowed you to enjoy the chewy texture with crunchy little bits.
The view made the meal event better looking across a pond of water lilies at a classic hindu temple.
