Balinese food at Water Lily, Mutiara Tropicana - Narcissism is Necessary

Balinese food at Water Lily, Mutiara Tropicana

Water Lily is possibly my new favourite restaurant to go to. Just check out these pictures:

# – Grilled squid salad. The vegetables were fresh and crispy and the squid was perfectly grilled.

# – The lamb chop was succulent and melt-in-your-mouth good. It really didn’t need any gravy at all. And man, it’s huge! The dish came with two slabs of thick lambchops on a bed of fries, a huge slice of watermelon and a decent sized bowl of real salad (not some a miserable piece of lettuce with some mayo on it).

# – Nasi Campur Waterlily with beef. Came with generous amount of perfectly grilled squids, some prawns, a slice of really delicious white fish, some minced chicken wrapped around a lemongrass and condiments. Unless you have a big appetite, don’t bank on finishing it by yourself. I was surprised at how each dish taste so different from each other and for people who like variation in their meals like me, this is simply perfect.

# – Nasi Campur Waterlily with chicken. Basically the same nasi campur but with chicken instead of beef. In my opinion the beef tasted better than chicken but it’s probably cause I’m not a big fan of chicken breasts.

Water Lily is located right on the edges of Aman Suria, Bandar Utama and Tropicana. Basically when you’re coming out of the Tropicana tunnel towards Bandar Utama, it’s on your left about 800meters away from the tunnel. You won’t miss it as it’s visible from the road. Don’t have a picture of the exterior as it was raining when I was there.

    fietheelf: the grilled salad was like RM14 and the nasi campur was like lower range of RM30-ish. Not sure about the chops but think it’s also in the middle of RM30-ish. Quite cheap considering the portion and taste :)

    […] I have to say it was superb! This is their signature Waterlily Nasi Campur. The prices aren't low, but for the portion size and quality of the food it's very good value for money. It is cheaper than other equivalent places. Kim wrote about it here – Balinese food at Water Lily, Mutiara Tropicana. […]
