Who’s The BO$$?

Craving for a burger? Seminyak’s BO$$MAN show’s you who’s the boss.

Craving for a burger? Seminyak’s BO$$MAN show’s you who’s the boss.

BALI HAS ALWAYS been a haven for those seeking enlightenment. And after Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, the island exploded with those seeking their own EPL moment. Food has also been an integral part of the island’s development. If we go by trends, vegan restaurants and smoothie bowls are the current hit. But if you are anything like me, I am not about to hitch a ride on that bandwagon. Come on, admit it, you too are just dying for a burger!

In the heart of Seminyak, BO$$ MAN is the place to be. They have carefully crafted six signature burgers with the best ingredients, featuring 60-day dry-aged chuck steaks shaped in-house daily, premium quality pork cooked low and slow over 18 hours until juicy and tender, as well as 100 percent homemade sauces. These guys know their burgers. No pretending here.


Brought to us by the same cool guys who run Sisterfields, the home of Australian brunch and café culture on the island, Bo$$ Man, is the complete opposite.  It’s gigantic burgers, are a stark contrast to the cleaner and healthier menu next-door. With names like Al Capone, Notorious P.I.G and the Original Gangster, you know that they know what they are doing. The Al Capone is a 160-gram beef patty on a toasted bun, topped with bone marrow emulsion, house-smoked BBQ sauce, creole chutney, bacon, grilled onions and smoked cheddar. A mouthful to type, but even a bigger mouthful to eat. My personal favorite, the Notorious P.I.G., is an 18-hour pork belly with Asian slaw, candied chilli and a sesame emulsion. Yum.

For our Living Large issue, executive chef Jethro Vincent went all out and made for us a mega Al Capone burger, with five patties, drenched in their smoky BBQ sauce. Heaven for a meat lover like me. This one is off the menu, but maybe if you ask nicely, they will make you one. I guess if you can finish this one, they’ll know who is boss!
