Made's Warung - Balinese Nasi Campur Special @ Kuta [Bali Island, Indonesia]

I planned to try local food in Bali and though i had managed to check out the babi guling, there's another item on my list; Nasi Campur (mixed rice)! 

There were a few famous restaurants but for ease of travelling given the limited time i had on the Indonesian island, i needed one nearer to Grand Istana Rama Hotel. Thankfully, the hotel is located in a touristy area and Made's Warung, a 15--minute walk away, seemed like a great fit for my schedule.

Decor was traditionally Indonesian with two levels to choose from. It's non-air-conditioned; hence, do pray that the weather wasn't too hot / humid when you visit. 

My initial impression assumed that Made's Warung was a dining establishment serving authentic traditional Balinese / Indonesian cuisine. I believe it is but Western desserts, breakfast, salads, pasta, pancakes and even Japanese dishes! 

Well, i am still sticking to the local delights.

Mineral Water - a bottle of plain water for me as there's another round of food at a burger place in two to three hours' time and i had to control the amount of trash that would be going into my body!

Avocado Juice - managed to steal a sip from Alex and it was so creamy and refreshing! Definitely welcome in the hot weather and not as sweet as some other versions that included chocolate sauce / gula melaka. 

Black Rice Pudding - this came recommended and was served warm! Looked a bit like the Singapore's Or Bi Beh (black glutinous rice) and taste wise; similar to eating watery red bean paste. Flavour was weak though and the sweetness could be reduced, in my opinion.

Nasi Campur Special - i chose this over Nasi Campur as it's not every month i would be in Bali and i might as well for the special version. 

There's a variety of ingredients surrounding the bowl-shaped rice; satay, vegetables, sardine, prawns, chicken. Don't they remind us of our local mixed vegetables rice or Nasi Padang? Except that we get to pick and choose the ingredients back home.

A familiar experience and one i enjoyed very much as the mish-mash of ingredients in every spoonful was delicious! The only negative feedback was maybe the satay which could have been more tender.
