Bebek Bengil (Dirty Duck Diner) was opened in 1990. Since then, we have been serving delicious food and providing good service in a friendly, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Many People have asked us how we got the name ‘Bebek Bengil’; well here’s the story…..
When we were building the restaurant , we thought long and hard of a name. Many suggestions came from our friends, but none seemed just right; We knew we wanted a Balinese name that translated well into English. However, for a long time the metaphor eluded us.
One tropical monsoon morning, when the restaurant was very close to being finished (we had the concrete floor down, and the tables in) a flock of ducks from rice fields across the road (…yes, there were rice fields all around us then!) ran quacking and squawking into the restaurant and across the floor and tables. They left their muddy, webbed footprints all over the place. They were our first guests – these “Dirty Ducks.”
