Blue Star Cafe, Jemeluk Bay, Amed, Bali

Blue Star Cafe Jemeluk Amed BaliThe Blue Star Cafe and Bungalows, located along the shores of Jemeluk Bali in Amed, in the north-east of Bali. It is next door to Ombak Restaurant, sharing views over the bay. The restaurant is a step off the beach, and we took up half the place with my brother and his kids.

Blue Star Cafe Jemeluk Amed BaliWith 9 of us there, we tried a lot of different food. Starting with a mushroom bruschetta, which was a little like a pizza, having a sauce base, fresh tomato, champingons and melted cheese. The bread was more westernised than the usual sweet Asian style, and was very think sliced and filling.

The pizza was alright, personal sized, but a little heavy handed on the sauce. And only the cheese was melted, other ingredients were raw, including the onion.

The pasta marinara, was very tasty with a rich tomato sauce.

The chicken curry my brother ordered was very nice according to him, but he ordered it with potatoes instead of rice. Big mistake, as the potatoes were a creamy bake of some sort, so he had to order plain rice also, which just gave him more food than he could manage to eat!!

The sandwich was good, with nice bread as described above. All meals came with a small serve of pickled cucumber, carrot and pineapple. This was quite a refreshing addition to the meal.

The satay ikan lilit (minced fish with spices) was delicious. Best dish of the night. Tasty satay, served with my favourite urab vegetables (cooked with grated coconut). Blue Star Cafe Jemeluk Amed BaliNot a bad night at this restaurant, however certain aspects were a little disappointing. The service was not at all friendly, which is unusual for Bali. Although the location is idyllic!

Ombak Restaurant Jemuluk Bay

Warung Ombak is located at the end of Jemuluk Bay, next door to the blue star hotel, in the area of Amed in the north of Bali. It is a basic warung, but we were attracted to it’s view of the ocean, and it was just next door to where we were staying at Villa Coral.

Being by the sea, fish dishes seemed like a good idea. Rob started with fish cakes, then ikan pepes, fresh fish wrapped in banana leaf.

The kids were keen to try the chicken nuggets, even though we have had bad experiences with them recently. Thankfully they were not the processed type, but pieces of real chicken battered.

Clare went with an interesting soup, coconut and carrot, with a salad too. It was soup was not in a coconut cream base, but it actually had bits of coconut in the soup. It worked well.

Then there was grilled chicken and chips.

And some more fish. The only fish available was Mahi Mahi, as we found every day we were in this area.

It was a risk ordering pizza at an Indonesian Warung at the beach, but this wasn’t so bad. It was packed high with an unusual mix of ingredients. You would struggle to really call it a pizza.

We liked it!
