The Flavours of Bali | Tuna Betel Leaf | Travelshopa


With a shopping trip to Bali well within our sights, may we suggest enjoying a bit of the Island of the Gods at home, with good family and friends, and good food?! Here, we share the recipe for perfect Tuna Betel Leaves by guru #StreetFoodChef Will Meyrick from Sarong and Mama San restaurants in Bali.

The dish includes high-grade tuna and local delicacy, betel leaves, together with a raw Balinese Sambal Matah and Bumbu Pasih. For those aspiring to be michelin star chefs, have a stab at making your own Sambal Matah and Bumbu Pasih with the ingredients below the main recipe.

To complete your Balinese shopping spree, why don’t you pick up a copy of Will’s cookbook Sarong Inspirations.

We hope you enjoy your first recipe from our chic living column and pair it with a beautiful crisp white. MasterChef Asia eat your heart out!
