It is proven that if you want to try the best local food, than hear from the local! I am really fortunate to have Daniel as our tour guide hehee..not really an official one, but he is the one taking us here and there while we're in Lombok. And he took us to this place, a seafood small resto called Remaja Indah on Jalan Raya Lawang Kuta, Lembar.Daniel said that it's the best seafood in Lombok, and frankly speaking I trust him.
The resto located opposite of a mosque. If you go towards Lembar from Mataram or BIL, you will find this resto on your right side. It's only a small resto, but it's worth the journey! For your info, Lembar is the harbour in west Lombok, you will arrive in Lembar if you are taking ferry from Padang Bai, Bali.
We ordered their shrimp, crab and grilled fish, they are all delicious, and the best was of course the crab!
To our surprise, we were 10 people and only had to pay IDR 650,000 for all the food we ordered, very cheap! Well, don't judge the book by its cover, don't judge this resto by its look from outside:p If you plan to have your culinary experience in Lombok, than this resto should be on your list!
