Best Roast Pig in the World

Thought I'd share this..


I am a fan of Anthony Bourdain, so in order to give this post some context, watch this clip..

(SKip to 47seconds)

Slowly Hand Turning the Pig that's been slaughtered in the morning? Slowly rubbed with Coconut water and stuffed with Indonesian Spices?
Wow.


So, naturally, after seeing that clip, I had to fly to Bali and try what Anthony Bourdain said to be the best roast pig he's ever had.

I wasn't dissapointed.
I was so happy to find the place...









Arrived at just the right time..



The skin was truly amazing.. crispier than a chip!


The Balinese spices and flavors were definitely the best. I'll never forget how it tasted.


Solid 10/10. Price for meal? 350,000 Indonesia Rupees... (about $3.50CAD).

Epic meal... The place is soooo good. If you ever make a stop in Bali, be sure to try it.

Yea, me too. Funny thing is there was an option to order just the skin. So you get a few slices of the skin to eat like chips. I could really go for that right now..

^Filippino style. Although I have no place in particular to recommend, it's pretty damn good.

+1 I love watching No Reservations. He goes to so many great random places. Anthony Bourdain really loves his pig. The Filippino one is really good to.

I'd love to try the Fillipino version, although I am skeptical it was more delicious than the Balinese version. I'd never tasted anything so memorable. Ended up eating there 3x.

Anyone know of any famous locations in the Phillipines?
