Instead of heading off into the outer reaches of Asia, the last few weeks have been all about discovering some of the hidden secrets of my own island home.
A popular dish
Street-side eating here is all about one thing only – tahu tipat. Originally from East Java but hugely popular here in Bali, tahu tipat consists of freshly made tofu pieces that are pan fried so that they become slightly golden and warm, before being mixed with bean sprouts, lontong (soft rice cakes shaped in plaited banana leaf parcels) and spicy peanut sauce.
I visited this Warung in November 2012. Though they changed their frontage, the recipe, taste and twist remain the same !
