Usually when I went to Bali, there's already a default list of places that I'd visit, like Babi Guling, Warung Cahaya, Gusto, etc (you can check them out on Instagram by searching #lulabyspoonbali). After a certain times of going to the same routines, you'd get sick of it, so you can't imagine how psyched I am when I found this new favorite spot! It's called Pork Star and yes, when in Bali, of course the jewels would be pork..lol!
Pork Star here is pretty close to Warung Cahaya, only in different alley. From the front you'd immediately see a hot pink container truck with a picture of a pig on it, that's how you know it's Pork Star! Don't worry, even though only the truck is visible, they actually have a proper table to dine in, the container is just their kitchen, the restaurant itself even have 2 floors!
PORK DYNAMITE IDR 38K
Mozzarella cheese wrapped in pork bacon, a portion has 6 pieces and we went with 2 portions..lol! This small bite is super good, though the cheese is way more dominant than the pork!
PORK STAR'S PLATTER IDR 94K
A 250grams of pork belly with 3 choices of sauce; black pepper, sweet and spicy, and truffle, which is of course, the bomb!
This ain't the super crispy type but still very delicious. Comes with a choice of side dish, either french fries or baby potatoes, you can also get butter rice like us but there's an additional IDR 10K for it!
NASI CAMPUR PORK STAR IDR 48K
Complete with 4 types of pork; sambal matah pork, sambal hijau pork, rica-rica pork, and dendeng. I can safely say that all of them is delicious but can you guess the most memorable one? Yeap, it's the sambal matah pork! It even rivals the Warung Cahaya's!
PORK STAR'S PORK RIBS
Sorry, I don't really remember the price, I think it's IDR 90K or something. Anyways, this is amazingly good! Super tender to the point that it just melts in your mouth and the flavor is also unique, just the way I like it! Discovering new flavors!
High chance of coming back not only because they have many varieties of pork that I haven't tried but because each dish I tried is superb! Trust me, you have to try this place if you're in Bali!!
