Living the life of a Global Entrepreneur really does open you up to a delightful world of authentic culinary experiences. There is nothing like visiting a foreign country and tasting the local food. In fact it’s one of my favorite parts of being able to do what I love and travel.
Looking back on life when I was living in Sydney Australia, I felt like I was so spoilt by its multi-cultural food cuisine, however I didn’t really appreciate how lucky I was at the time. Any night of the week I could pick a country and go there for dinner, just down the road, and of course Indian was always on the hit list.
Indian would make an appearance most weeks. In fact I can still picture my favorite Indian take-away ‘Indian Gourmet’ near the corner of Victoria Avenue & Penhurst Street in Willoughby (and years later it’s still there! – I’ve just looked it up on Google). Holy Cow! It makes me salivate just thinking about it while I sit here writing this in Bali.
Even though it’s been over 8 years, I can clearly see the small shop front that was so inviting, and I can smell the aroma of spices that hit you as you walked through the door. Marveling at the selection of curries on offer, but I could never go past the butter chicken. It was A-MAZE-ING with their fluffy saffron rice, poppadoms and raita. Then they would package it all up in a crisp brown paper bag and I would run home with to sit with my dinner in pure bliss. Oh, how I loved that Indian food.
So what do you do when you are travelling the world and get a craving for Indian food? Well… you hunt. You hunt high and low until you find a hidden sanctuary of Indian delights.
I’ve been living in Bali for just over 5 months now and it’s getting to that time where the traditional Nasi Goreng, Nasi Campur and Mei Goreng ‘s are let’s say – getting a little hard to chew. So I went on a hunt and I have found a little piece of India in Bali, just behind the Monkey Forest in Ubud.
This is my home for Indian eats! Sarni is a gorgeous host at her beautiful restaurant. Every time I go there I could just sit and marvel at its beauty. So special to find a place with true Indian style hospitality and food that is so authentic. I can feel the love pouring out of her homemade food! Seek and you will find… Indian food is out there.
