Bebek Bengil | An institution in Ubud serving delicious crispy duck

Nestled along one of the main shopping streets, Bebek Bengil (otherwise known as Dirty Duck), is an institution in the town of Ubud. Serving its popular crispy duck with Balinese spices since 1990, the restaurant caters to a mix of both tourists and locals alike.
