Beer That’s Balilicious

Balilicious logoI’ll be hosting an exploration of pairing ales with Indonesian food on July 14 in the intimate setting of Balilicious. Most Asian restaurants only offer a selection of mass-market lager and Guinness. This delicious dinner will demonstrate the excellent options other beer styles offer, which are always available at Balilicious:


  • Gado Gado Salad & Special House Peanut Sauce
  • Perkedel Jagung (corn fritters)
  • Martabak Asin (Indonesian beef pancake)

  • Sayur Kari (red curry veggies) or
  • Rendang Sapi (dry curry beef brisket) or
  • Ikan Bali (fried fish filet in tamarind chilli garlic sauce)

Trio Dessert

  • Bubur Injin (black rice pudding)
  • Pisang Goreng (deep-fried banana)
  • Chocolate-and-Avocado Parfait
