Two weeks ago, SC & I went to Bali for a weeklong vacation. Our flight was delayed, so by the time we arrived and checked in at Tanaya in Legian, it was already time for dinner. We decided to walk to Bubba Gump for dinner. The place is designed using the theme of the popular 1994 movie, Forrest Gump and naturally, they serve Seafood dishes. There are also a merchandise store at the back of the restaurant.
Since both of us love Fish and Chips, we ordered their Captain’s Fish and Chips (Deep fried mahi mahi fillets served with fries and tartar sauce) 110K. We also ordered the Cajun Shrimp (sauteed in spicy Cajun butter sauce, served with garlic bread for dipping) 85K. For drinks, we went with the Southern blue lemonade with blueberries 45K and Mango sparklers (mango, lemonade, orange juice and lemon lime) 45K. While waiting we’re given a plate of kerupuk udang for snack, which tasted good 🙂
The fish and chips were served in a big platter, on top of a piece of paper designed to look like a newspaper from Gump’s hometown. The fish and chips tasted OK, but I think the one in Kemang tasted better (and much cheaper). The Cajun shrimps was a disapointment. The menu promote it as a spicy dish, but it’s not spicy at all. In fact, it was close to tasteless. Fortunately, the drinks were good. Overall, with that kind of prices, we won’t be returning here any time soon.
