When I’m on a tight budget, I’m almost always discouraged to set foot at one of the hotel and resort bars and restaurants, as I’m used to the ones back in the Philippines that charge an arm and a leg for food and alcohol. Going around Bali though, I discover that there exist hotels and resorts that serve good food for cheap. One of these is The Best Brew at the Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Kuta, which surprised me with its affordable steaks and barbecue. Read more…
The Best Brew is present across different Four Points by Sheraton properties around the world, and each showcases a varied selection of local and imported craft beers poured from their respective taps. The one in Bali is a chic outdoor chill-out bar and restaurant, replete with lounge chairs, candlelight, a traditional wood-fired pizza oven, white sand, and nice Balinese touches. Food is cooked in a live station in full view of the guests.
The restaurant is located on the frontage of the Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Kuta, a newly-opened hotel with a strong resort feel, minutes away from the beach and the action. As a fan of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, I was eager to check the place out. It’s gorgeous!
The menu is a range of pub-friendly grub that, of course, pairs well with beer—expect to see wood-fired pizzas, kebabs, ribs, barbecue, sausages, and even pasta from the selection. What I was to try that night though was the Grill & Chill, a meal that comes with two barbecued meats and a free rein on the salad, vegetable, starch, and sauce buffet.
I liked the grilled Gippsland sirloin, which was tender, most, and cooked right, and it went well with the tomato sambal. But what stood out for me that night was the linguine and poached chicken in cardamom cream and lime pesto because of my bias towards pesto and cream sauces.
VALUE FOR MONEY
Unbelievably, the Grill & Chill costs less than a hundred thousand rupiah total. I have yet to encounter a place that offers a good steak or barbecue dinner for around that price in Bali, much less from a hotel. Even better, their alcohol and other pub grub are priced affordably too.
