Photo of the Day: Nasi Padang

18One of the great things about Bali is the traditional food. There are of course a plethora of restaurants serving cuisine from around the world but, there are also numerous warungs that prepare the traditional foods from around the archipelago of Indonesia. Although I adore Balinese food, it is the tastes of Sumatra that I find the most delicious predominately is nasi padang.

Down a small lane (Gang Ronta) that runs off Poppies Lane 2 you will find my favourite nasi padang place in Bali. The exterior of the place is certainly not that typical of your usual warung or restaurant in Bali. As you can see by the photo, all the food is displayed in the window and stays there all day, and night. You might be thinking that this is a prime target for all manner of bacteria. Oddly enough, it isn’t! The food is deliciously delightful and so very cheap. Candika and I get a take-away from there and it only costs us around Rp15,000. If your fancy takes you then there are laminex tables and chairs inside.
