EDITORS NOTEHello and welcome to the September edition of Lets Eat! Magazine your culinary guide to the island of Bali.Once again our team of writers have been exploring the restaurant scene on the island, and even managed a little sight seeing this month as they headed to Bali Safari Marine Park. While theme parks are not normally synonymous with fine dining, the awardwinning Tsavo Lion Restaurant provides an enticing menu in fabulous surrounds, with views of lions and meer cats. Make sure to jump on the Safari tour after lunch [p 40]. Back on the coast we took a drive to Pan Pacific Nirwana, always a treat with its tantalising views of the famous Tanah Lot temple. The chef lead us on a tour of the organic gardens and we helped pick a selection of vegetables for a fresh and healthy lunch [p 46]. An afternoon at the Hendra Oktaviano Editor-in-Chief super cool, ever innovative W Resort & Spa Seminyak revealed some very novel cocktails [p 56], while the bean bags at Om Gelato provided a comfortable spot to indulge in ice cream and watch the waves of the famous Canggu surf break [p 60]. There was also a memorable sunset at Envy in Tuban enjoying tasty and casual cuisine infused with a mellow seaside vibe [p 36]. As the restaurant scene in Bali continues to evolve, so too does Lets Eat! Magazine and we hope you enjoy our new, sleeker appearance. We love to hear from you, our readers, so please feel free to share any of your thoughts and ideas with us. As always Bon Apetit
