Food Glossary: Babi Guling

Babi Guling is my favourite Bali speciality and probably one of its most famously boasted dishes.  It is suckling pig stuffed and infused with chilli, turmeric, garlic and ginger and other spices they fancy, then spit-roasted and is served on a platter with a multitude of other pieces of pork presented and prepared in a variety of ways.  Not only do you get succulent tender pork meat, but crispy crackling, spice flavoured minced pork, diced meat, sometimes some added to soup, and the varieties go on.  

Ensure you try this tasty dish when visiting the island, it was one of my highlights!  You will signs for it all over the island like in the photo below, or you can look up recommended places to try the dish as well.  I found this useful blog post which might help.  For a mouthwatering close up picture of the pork check out this amazing photo on Flickr too!
