Photo of the Day: Street Eating

mini-downtown-kuta-188Travellers to Bali are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to food. There are a multitude of international restaurants serving all manner of scrumptious food. In reality, tourists never have to veer too far away from relatively safe eating, that is, unless they wish to immerse their palate in the savoury foods that Indonesia has to offer. I’m not just talking about the run-of-the-mill Nasi Goreng or other Indo-tourist fares. I mean good, delicious street food; food that makes your mouth salivate and leaves you hungering for more. There are numerous good warungs that serve local delicacies and those from various parts of the archipelago. These places are a good introduction to Indonesian food but, if your stomach is not made of cast-iron then it’s best not to over-imbibe.

I seldom venture through the doors of restorans much preferring the cheap and delicious foods of backstreet warungs and the food that is virtually cooked right out there on the street.
