Dining Experiences

"Otentik" events are celebrations of experiencing the amazing flavors of various signature Northern Balinese dishes prepared using authentic cooking methods based on family recipes made fresh from local herbs and spices curated by Pengalaman Rasa.

Otentik Babi Guling is our signature event, featuring Authentic Babi Guling made from "babi hitam", the Balinese indigenous home-grown black pigs instead of the more commonly found commercially bred pink pigs

You haven't tried the Real Balinese Babi Guling if you haven't tried ours!
