Warung Enak, Ubud

warung enak signboard

As a rule of thumb, any eatery that calls itself ‘delicious’ (enak means delicious in Indonesian) ought to be viewed with scepticism. Do the proprietors have nothing else to say about their food and business other than “come in, the food is good”? And shouldn’t customers be the rightful judge to a particular restaurant’s food quality?

Warung Enak, however, proved to be an exception to this rule. We are not sure why they simply named the place ‘enak’, but we agree that the food quality there – those that were sampled – to be in line with the implied promise. Food aside, it is noteworthy that the place is well decorated and service was also prompt.

The restaurant serves a wide variety of dishes from all over the Indonesian archipelago. From Sumatra to Papua, all the large islands of Indonesia are represented in the menu. The selection is so diverse we felt that they deserve some form of commendation for their service to Ubud visitors who wishes to sample all sort of Indonesian food under one roof. Remember that having such a diverse spread has its obvious disadvantage; akin to being a jack of all trades, it is difficult to be a master. Warung Enak seems to handle this pretty well, the food is generally tasty. Here are some dishes that we had the pleasure to review:

Ayam madu katulistiwa

Ayam madu katulistiwa

Ayam madu katulistiwa is grilled chicken with Coriander, Cumin, Honey and Palm sugar marinate. The chicken was well marinated, and the grilling process didn’t dry the meat out. This one is a winner!

Nasi Campur at warung enak

Nasi campur

Nasi campur. Many regions in Indonesia have their own interpretation of this dish, as the name can simply be translated as mixed rice. Warung Enak serves the Balinese version, with the signature Balinese sate lilit, as well as small serving of other dishes. Try this if you have never tried nasi campur before.
