Bebek Bengil in Bali

The Famous Dirty Duck Diner in Ubud

Bebek Bengil boasts a specialty menu offering Bali’s ‘original crispy duck since 1990’, as well as duck satays and smoked duck (which has to be ordered a day in advance). Given the star dishes on the menu, it’ll probably come as no surprise to learn that the name means ‘dirty duck’ in Indonesian and gives the restaurant its nickname of the Dirty Duck Diner. The menu also includes a host of other international and Indonesian selections.

The first restaurant is located midway along Jalan Hanoman, in the village of Padang Tegal in Ubud. It’s just before the turn that leads to the famous Ubud Monkey Forest Sanctuary. The restaurant is part of the Agung Raka group that is behind the Agung Raka Bungalows and the Agung Raka Fine Art Gallery, as well as another branch of the Bebek Bengil restaurant up Jalan Monkey Forest Road.

Bebek Bengil 1 (the first, original restaurant) features spacious dining settings with good daytime views provided by its lush crafted gardens and landscaping inspired by its natural rice field surroundings. The restaurant features wooden décor with raised platforms and optional dining spaces on 2 levels, as well as outdoor seating in the gardens.

Innovative à la carte dishes include satays, fish and chips, finger foods and the most popular crispy duck in Bali, which is steamed with a blend of Balinese spices and then quickly deep-fried at a high temperature for a very crispy result and delicious taste.

Also found on the menu at Bebek Bengil is a range of western snacks and appetisers such as guacamole served with melinjo or paddy oat crackers, roasted tomato salad, organic green salad tossed with avocado and tomatoes, Ginger Rogers chicken salad with pineapple and cashews, fish and chips, French fries, grilled chicken sandwich with foccacia bread, and the classic club sandwich.

The Bebek Bengil crispy duck main course highlight comes with a choice of sautéed potatoes and a side salad or steamed white or yellow (turmeric-infused) rice and Indonesian vegetables. Chicken options come in the choice of ginger chicken, chicken Kiev, and chicken teriyaki.

Good to know about Bebek Bengil

The inspiration of the diner's name came when, one tropical monsoon morning as its construction was nearing completion; a flock of ducks from the adjacent rice field ran quacking into the establishment and across the floor and tables, leaving muddy footprints all over the place.

A second branch is just up the Jalan Monkey Forest, called Bebek Bengil 2. The latest addition to the restaurant brand’s line-up is at The Bay Bali Nusa Dua, featuring a beachfront location in the premier destination. This latest addition is a unique breakaway from its first 2 locations in the central highlands of Ubud.

The restaurant is often packed on any given day, although diners are used to just walking in and finding their own favourite available corner. Reservations are recommended, especially for large parties.
