Forget the tourist restaurants, come eat with the locals!
Just off the main strip, maybe a 5 min walk north above the palace is this excellent babi guling resto. If you are looking for some other kind of food, go elsewhere! Only babi guling here, but boy is it delicious. Instead of waiting in line for takeout, push past the locals and head upstairs and have a seat overlooking the street. Someone will eventually come take your order, only 2 things on the menu, nasi biasa(cheaper) and nasi special. Both are fantastic, see picture from others(I ate mine too fast for a photo op). I didnt see another tourist in 5his place, but good gawd was it amazing! Need to finish review because nasi special is calling my name and its almost lunch time.

After a thoroughly disappointing babi guling experience at the highly touted (by non-locals) Ibu Oka, I headed over to Gung Cung to give it a try. So, so good. The pig skin was magically crisp in a way I didn't think possible. The hot pepper mix they put on top of the meat is delicious but really spicy - if you're not used to hot food, get it on the side.

Great food at local prices
We stopped by the table due to good review. In front was bunch of locals are waiting to take away their pork. The menu is simple with only the baby gulling as main ingredient. Althought I have a desire for other food than Indonesian, their pork wasnt failed me. Local food at local prices for sure. Go with the soup. It tastes different but worth a try
