Day 3 in Bali - Rumours Restaurant & Aviary Restaurant

After our horse riding day tour, we were so tired hahaha. Went back to the villa earlier and rested, before we went out for dinner.

We had initially decided to go to Sardine Restaurant Bali for it's scenic view, but I we were feeling a little lazy ;p

Walked along the streets of Seminyak, and decided to go into Rumours Restaurant. And I remembered quite a famous food blogger blogged about this restaurant, so I thought it should be good.

But it turned out to be our biggest mistake in Bali -_-

After plonking ourselves on the seats and made ourselves more comfortable, we realised it was really warm - the standard of air-con places in Bali haha :)

Probably because we were seated near the windows. And when the hubby's food came in a sizzling hot plate, I guess the smell of food attracted this housefly which was insistent on being our friend in the restaurant -_-

The hubby ordered a rump steak and me salad. Both items came as a disappointment. The hubby's steak was so oily that he can't finish. I had to "dab" off the excess oil on my plate, and I told him to "drain off" the excess oil on his salad (the steak came with salad and fries).

True enough, after most of the meat was gone from the plate, we saw that the oil + sauce (which smelt so buttery -_-) filled up almost 1/2 of the hot plate.

The salad's vege was also not looking fresh enough. Close up, the vege looked so yellowish and tattered, I didn't even know if that's a good idea to eat it. The only consolation is that the tomatoes and chicken are good.

I don't know how they manage to get a rating of 4 out of 5 on TripAdvisor. Probably you got to research on what to order before popping by ;p

Feeling neither-here-nor-there, we moved on, trying to find other places to eat ;p

Eventually we walked into Seminyak Square, and decided on Aviary Restaurant. The restaurant looked classy enough, quite romantic with its dim lighting. It was quite a make-it-or-break-it choice since the entire restaurant had only us throughout our meal there lol.

We were goofing around while waiting for the food to come, and had a great laugh over this photo lol.

The hubby ordered ribs, and I ordered chicken wings. The wings were nice. But really, leave the coleslaw aside ;p It has got a weird taste.

The ribs, with a good accompanying sauce, so nice! I especially loved the potatoes!

I wanted to order a Pear Helena, but it was sold out. Ordered apple pie (who can go wrong with apple pie right), but it was a miss lol. The pie came in sort of a flaky crust, but the apple bits inside - tasteless with a weird looking custard. LOL.

But at least the mains and their service made us happy after the meal at Rumours ;p
