Wow…. It’s very delicious. Twisted satay in combination with fish meatball and water spinach served with plecing sauces causes visitors to get hungrier. The aroma of traditional spices is so tempting. Moreover, if it has been served hygienically with various garnishes, the typical Lebih Beach-style menu is getting more attractive.It was the menu of Lebih customary villager, Gianyar, presented in the Lebih Food Festival held on Saturday (Dec 22). More uniquely, the traditional menu was mixed and served by village girls happening to earn a fortune on the beach.
Indeed, for the community of Lebih Beach, particularly those living on coastal areas, preparing the menu was not a new thing. They presented the three menus almost every day. “We always sell twisted satay, meatballs and water spinach served with plecing spices on this Lebih Beach. Since it is now presented for festival, we deliberately prepare and serve them as beautifully as possible,” said Luh Ayu, one of the food festival participants.
In a food contest, participants were indeed required to make the menus in the form of twisted satay and meatballs by means of marine fish. Moreover, it was also accompanied with water spinach with plecing spices and various garnishes. Festival of the first time was only followed by dozens of participants, where for the assessment the committee made collaboration with the Indonesian Chef Association (ICA).
Indeed, the Lebih Beach had been visited by many tourists. They deliberately came to relax while enjoying twisted satay, grilled fish and seafood specialties like meatball. Moreover, on school holidays or public holidays the traders on the beach would look very busy. (BTN/015)
