Balikpapan Spots

Been living in the city for 13 months, at least i have some favorite spots šŸ™‚

Let me start from Sepinggan airport area. Sepinggan airport has its airport taxi, but i prefer to have a normal taxi. Just go into Roti Boy shop and call Mawar Taxi (0542 874545). The taxi uses normal argo meter.

Take a direction to the central city, you’ll find Kepiting Dandito on the left side. The black pepper crab is good šŸ˜€ Not far from there, there’s the famous Kepiting Kenari. Don’t expect too much for services in Balikpapan, still worse than JKT :p It would be disaster for those who have allergic on seafood. Almost all of Balikpapan favorite menu are seafood šŸ˜€

Balikpapan also has some famous lounges and it feels so good to have some drink with friends there (or even having date :D).
1. The Open House @ Markoni Atas
It gives city view in some unique ambiance. It’s located on the top of a hill and built in some Balinese house.
2. The Ocean @ Ruko Bandar Balikpapan
Cozy place to have chit chat with family and friends.
3. Dapeen *located next to The Ocean*
I prefer The Ocean than Dapeen.

Those places are cozy, but not really good for your money šŸ˜€

Balikpapan does have some delicious menu. These are my favourite:
1. Bakso Sapi @ the central of the city
luv luv luv the baso tahu :p
2. Depot Simpang 4 @ Kebon Sayur
luv luv luv the fried prawn with mayo…nyum ^^
3. Nasi goreng semut merah *near Gran Senyiur*
it’s quite good food and less than 10K IDR :p

I kinda forgot some other places, but i enjoy visiting Blue Sky hotel health club for having spa and salon.
