If you really want to experience eating like a local in a modest traditional café, warung, this is the right place to be! Balinese people love their nasi campur. Nasi campur refers to rice with a variety of side dishes or toppings. Usually, the side dishes are displayed in the counter, and you only need to choose which dishes you want to go with your rice and they will serve it to you. They have 3 different coloured rice i.e regular white rice, yellow rice (rice cooked with cumin) and red rice, with over 40 side dishes to choose from! 😱
Established 16 years ago, this restaurant has many loyal customers that love them for their authentic local taste of Balinese cuisine. Don’t be fooled by its modest appearance, this warung is certified by MUI (Indonesian Islamic Council)! Great news right? So just sit down and indulge yourself in one of the most authentic and tasty plates of Nasi Campur (but please always be remember to eat in moderation 😆)!
Address: Jl Danau Buyan No.36 Sanur, Bali (across McD Sanur)

This warung also has a similar concept as the one above – your choice of side dishes to go with a plate of white rice. The difference is that this warung is famous for the spiciness of its sambal or chilli paste mixed with special ingredients or herbs.
For those of you who can’t stand spicy food, you can also let them know that you don’t want the chilli to be added to your plate of rice. The great thing about this warung is that they’re open 24 hours!
Truly a hero for those who have midnight cravings or those who land on the island at midnight or an early morning flight, right? You also need to be patient to eat at this place because they are known to always be packed!
