Bali 2010 - Lunch at Made's Warung

Made’s Warong is quite an institution in Bali. It was in fact one of the first casual dining cafe in Bali. The very first outlet was located on Jalan Raya Pantai Kuta, right off the road. It can get a bit noisy and chaotic. The Seminyak outlet is more protected from the road, with seating areas wrapping around an open courtyard. The main restaurant has a mezzanine level that overlooks the rest of the dining area.

Service here is casual but quite efficient. Once you are seated, your order is taken quickly and the food comes out within minutes. We ordered one of the famous Nasi Campur Special, and one Nasi Campur with half Gado Gado (Indonesian Salad). The Nasi Campur was really impressive - it came with more then 10 different small portions of Indonesian dishes - including beef rendang, smoked chicken, sambal prawns, etc.

The taste of everything was very good and authentic. This is a very satisfying way to sample many different dishes on one plate, and you can see why Nasi Campur is so popular in Indonesia and also Malaysia. The Gado Gado version had more vegetable dishes which were also really delicious.

We also ordered a vegetable soup, a light broth which complemented the spiciness of the rice dishes.

And finished with some Banana Fritters, served with palm sugar. Some vanilla ice cream would have made it perfect.

Some may consider Made's Warung a bit touristy, and the pricing is definitely not hawker standard, but the quality of the food and the great ambiance makes it a really enjoyable lunch or dinner venue. Try it at least once. You may be hooked !
