Leis Indonesian Legian is beachfront and we walked past a number of times before taking the plunge and dining. Legian Beach is somewhat lacking in traditional Indonesian fare and Leis seemed like the best of the bunch when we were hankering for some local cuisine. The sunsets across the water are spectacular. Read on for all the details …
Leis Indonesian Legian Overview
Lei’s Indonesian Legian is located in The Legian Beach Hotel directly opposite the beach and is perfect for a romantic dinner gazing at wonderful sunsets (see first photo in this post). While I love all varieties of food I think it’s important to always try the local fare when you travel. Enjoying an Indonesian feast is just one of the 110+ amazing things to do in Bali. Lei’s has an extensive menu so take your time to read through it all.
We were treated to some complimentary crackers and dipping sauce while we made our minds up and finally settled on a shared serve of Lumpia Semarang (Indonesian spring rolls) to start.
The Main Event
I went for Beef Rendang (braised beef in coconut milk, lemon grass, kaffir lime and turmeric) while The Hubs had the Sepat Ayam (chicken in lime, tomatoes, scallion almonds & chili). I’m always skeptical of ordering beef in Bali because a) it is usually expensive and b) cooked inconsistently. The beef itself was not as tender as I would have expected and could have done with a slower cook but the flavours were spot on. Hubby’s chicken was tender and delicious with complex flavours from the myriad of spices.
To finish we were provided with a palette cleanser and some cool towels. Presentation and attention to detail at Lei’s is amazing. Read more reviews on TripAdvisor.
