If you really want to experience eating like a local in a modest traditional café, which is called ‘warung’ in Indonesian, this is the right place to be! Balinese people love their ‘nasi campur’. Nasi campur means rice with a variety of side dishes or toppings. Usually the side dishes are displayed in a counter, and you only need to choose which dishes you would like to eat with your rice and they will serve it to you. They have 3 different coloured rice i.e regular white rice, yellow rice (rice cooked with cumin) and red rice, with more than 40 choices of side dishes! 😱

This warung also has the same concept as the one above, with various side dishes displayed ready to be chosen with your rice. The difference is that this warung is famous for the spiciness of its ‘sambal’ or chili paste mixed with some ingredients or herbs.

The great thing about this warung is that they’re open 24 hours! Truly a hero for those who have midnight cravings or those who land on the island at midnight or early morning flight, right?  You also need to be patient to eat at this place because they are known to always be packed!

If you’re facing a hunger emergency while travelling in Bali and you’re nowhere near any of the warungs or restaurants listed above, keep calm and just enter to a Padangnese restaurant in the area. Most Padangnese restaurants are owned by Muslims and always serve halal food. Other choices for emergencies are well known fast food chains such as KFC, CFC, Burger King, A&W, Domino’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, McD, and Wendys.  These chains hold halal certification!

Have a worry-free and fun time in Bali!
