Almost at the end of the winding cliff face road south of Amed, at Selang Beach, you come to the very new Blue Moon Villas. After parking your car, you climb the steep steps up to the pleasant Komang John Café, Further up above the café are a series of small villas, with balconies overhanging sheer space. The view from here is quite breathtaking! The food is simple International fare. It almost pales into insignificance amid the grandeur of the location. A great spot for losing yourself in your thoughts.
The breakfast menu contains most of the usual items be it western or Asian. The Nasi Goreng is quite substantial. A Banana Pancake if you like sweet breakfasts; a very thin pancake with slices of fried banana topped with palm sugar.
For those anytime snacks, there are a variety of sandwiches and jaffles, or a Tempura Special, thin slices of various vegetables in a light batter with a soy/ginger dip. A Crispy Tempe Salad consists of crunchy pieces of fried beancurd with beansprouts, chopped vegetables and a mixture of crushed roasted nuts. The Chicken and Green Bean Salad has been tossed with a dressing made from fresh herbs.
The Chicken Soup, made with fresh coconut milk, is quite spicy. A Fish & Vegetable Soup has that tangy sour Asian flavour from added lemons or limes.
Your choice of Fish or Chicken will be barbecued for you, and served with fried potatoes or rice. The accompanying sauces can be tomato, garlic, lemon, soy or a very spicy Balinese. Satays can be made from Chicken, Fish or a Vegetarian Tofu [Indonesian Tempe], and are served with your choice of vegetables or a salad, although I am sure that the more normal accompaniment, rice, would also be available.
Good old Fish & Chips are on this menu, a fresh fillet of fish, deep-fried in a light batter with black pepper. The Veracruz is a piece of fish that has been sauteed with an onion salsa then served with fried potatoes and salad.
