We decided to eat at Vanilla Pod last night as I checked trip advisor and noted it said Indonesian as well as International and our preference while in Bali is Indonesian. The Indonesian selection is extremely slim pickings, so we decided maybe the Balinese tapas. This was a mistake. Firstly if you are offering tapas, then give a decent amount of selection as tapas are always small portions so a variety is needed. We chose a beef dish, a chicken and a fish. No beef.....all out. Not sure how busy this place is in the day, but we were the only ones there at that stage for dinner, and besides running out is not an option. The fish was literally two mouthfuls each and the chicken which was apparently meant to have lemongrass in it was very, very dry. Lemongrass had vanished that day too. Out of the meagre other options were two soup dishes which for us is not appealing. Ordered a gin and tonic on arival only to find out they dont serve spirits, which was no big deal so we had a glass of a white wine from Chile that was actually very nice and a very reasonable price. The prices for the 'tapas' though, expensive given the minute portion size. If you go here I'd suggest totally avoid the tapas, and to be honest I didnt really look at the Western choices so not sure if they are expensive but suggest maybe so. Obviously after having so little here we had to go elsewhere for the remainder of dinner, but that's another story.......clearly not our night!
