Seafood dinner along the Senggigi beach at Lombok island

Traveling almost about 1 hour 30 minutes (approx. 60km) from Sade Village, passed by Mataram City (Capitol of Lombok)…we finally reached the Senggigi beach of Lombok. All of us agree to have our seafood dinner at Warung Menega (S8.52497 E116.06554) before check in to the resort.

The first scene that caught our attention was the smoky roof of the kitchen…

Everyone was curious about what happening in the kitchen…then, we discovered the grilling method is using charcoal and coir which resulted the smoky environment…

Let’s have a tour in the kitchen before the dining area…

The ‘warung’ (common word as a restaurant) had a simple setting, where you have a options of indoor dining area or the outdoor area on the beach. For us, we definitely choose the beach area…

As usual, everyone was busy photographing the surrounding of the restaurant before the foods serve on table…

Next to the restaurant, there were many fishing boats parking around…felt excited because we will going to experience the boat ride tomorrow for island hoping, looking forward about it…

The seafood served on table pretty fast, most of us had the same package which were the fish, prawns, clams and squids. Some of us chose only fish and some don’t take prawns… flexible package.
But all of us had one plate of kang-kong (water spinach) with the local recipe sambal chili, and unlimited rice…

I like the local sambal very much! It was aromatic and hot!
Believe all the seafood grilled with the same sauce and recipe, the prawns, fish and squids were finger-linking good! And the clams taste the best among all…
All the seafood were perfectly succulent, sweet and spicy. Impressed by the local recipes. But the magical part was the yummy sauces…dark sweet soy sauce, garlic, local sambal and chili with onions. Every sauce provided different taste with the seafood, I love the chili onions and the sambal very much!

It was a total different experience having our dinner here, while enjoying the seafood in our hands and watching the beautiful sunset…

The outdoor dining area was full after the night fall…

Beside the seafood delights and the sunset, I like to concentrate on those fishing boats back to the shores…

We were satisfied with the seafood dinner in Warung Menega. As I look into the menu, prices are reasonable too…I guess I’ll be back again on my next visit to Lombok.
