Bebek Bengil (Dirty Duck Diner) , Ubud Bali
"The duck you 'have to have', but wish you didn't" says Pete as we leave the Dirty Duck Diner in Ubud, Bali. After hearing so much about this place prior to going to Bali we were pretty excited about visiting this diner which is renowned for its famous crispy duck. Pete is a duck loving fanatic so it was always going to feature on our foodie tour of Bali.
Back to the beginning...
Upon arrival we are ushered down through gardens to the back of this huge restaurant along with a large group of tourists who have also arrived eager for some crispy duck action. Upon being seated we are greeted by the resident cat - super cute and very hungry he watches us for any sign we may give him a scrap or two.
To start, I order a Rambo Dirty Duck and Pete orders a beer.
The RDD is a combination of sparkling mineral water, fresh mint and cherry - I was expecting something with some sweetness of which this has none, however it is refreshing.

We decide not to risk dessert and leave in favour of a walk and some shopping.
Along the road we spot this cute little guy.
Tell me, have you ever visited a restaurant that hasn't lived up to it's hype?
