Someone recently suggested I try Warung Enak, and lets just say I can highly recommend it to you. Excellent, fresh tasty food as the name suggests, nothing beats a bit of quality nasi campur for lunch, fish, chicken, tofu , veggies, eggs and rice and all for around 1700IR ( possibly a little more for tourist tax). It is located on Jl Sriwijaya No. 9 Kuta, and I guess you could kind of say its near the Galleria Mall.
I have been getting quite a few takeaways from this place, and causing a slight ruckus due to ordering 2 pieces of chicken ( very unusual ). A great feed of rice, veggies, chicken,tofu and sambal to go, for the price of around 17 000 IR. The staff are a bit over me as I make it too hard to wrap my meal up as they think I order so much food. It is possible I am getting a reputation for being the bule (white skinned person) that eats too much 🙂 , the food is so good I cant help it.
It would be such a shame to visit Bali and not enjoy some of the sensational local street food. I can totally appreciate that this can be somewhat risky with all advice suggesting the contrary. However, I do encourage those with a strong tummy and a sense of adventure to try it out. This post comes with a disclaimer however that I take no responsbility for any outcome ( well perhaps a little if you enjoy the food ) after consuming Bali street food. Nasi bungkus simply means takeaway rice, or wrapped food for on the go. You will see all the locals grabbing a Nasi campur ( a mixture of rice/ noodles , vegtables, curried fish, chilli chicken, tofu and usually some kind of an egg also.) usually wrapped in a banana leaf and a waxy type of paper. You simply choose white or yellow rice, then point and indicate how much you would like of each dish, the more you eat the more you pay, and off you go to enjoy. Beware some of the chili dishes are deliciously HOT ! My fave is the Ayam Pedas (chili chicken). When choosing a good warung or street food vendor, pick the most popular one ( the one with the most locals), eat early so the food is freshest (midday is good) , and ask the locals for recommendations on their favourites. Even if the stall adds on a little tourist tax it will still be the cheapest meal you have had for ages with a bottle of water the meal will be around the 30 000 IR price mark.
