This seriously was one of the best pork we’ve ever had. We followed an enthusiastic native to a no name side street for the best babi guling, or roasted suckling pig in the Kuta area. It was an unpretentious food stall set in a shallow store front, thank goodness there were no busload of tourists.
The chunks of pulled pork and chopped pork belly were incredibly delicious and moist, served with toffee colored crispy pork skin and vegetables bursting with rich flavors — fragrant coconut milk, galangal, lemongrass, lime, palm sugar, tumeric, garlic, shallots and chilies.
The no name food stall offered a modest menu, babi guling, pork bone soup simmered with a type of kale green and a few vegetable sides. So delicious I had 4 plates. This was literally pork heaven.
