Dewi salad in Bali
For me, this salad represents everything about Bali. It's naturally beautiful and it tastes like heaven!
In Bali I found a little corner of paradise. Dewi's house. It is one of the most peaceful places I have stayed. Just two nights rejuvenated me for months.
It was surely Dewi's welcome and smile. But also his food. On her home cooking menu, as many choices as in a large restaurant. A huge variety. And what about the flavors. I had read that she cooks well before booking this short stay. But honestly, I didn't expect so much.
All the meals I have eaten there have been beyond delicious. I couldn't reproduce them all. I don't know all his secrets. But she was kind enough to tell me what she put in this salad that tasted like heaven. A real breath of fresh air, in all simplicity.
