Actually, I think there's only one main Balinese dish - chilis with chili paste. It varies when they add chicken, pork, fish, vegetables or rice. Every dish is so hot. It took me a month to finish my first babi guling. My second favorite dish is steamed rice - to soak up the spices.
I tried lots of the local cuisine (street food). Usually by not asking what the dish was. And most of it was delicious. Even just a simple "bulbur" for breakfast. It's a rice porridge with satay sauce topped with shreads of roasted chicken and scallions. Sometimes they add a few roasted peanuts or a sweet plum sauce. Simple, but tasty.
