Tirta Tawar's Soft Gem: Warung Made Becik

7:00:00 PM

It was mid-day when I entered Raya Ubud, randomly trying to drive myself to a smaller road towards Jalan Tirta Tawar, hoping to find a good yet quiet restaurant, because as we know that Ubud is all about organic delicacies & healthy sweet tooth. So it’s pretty good for those who are concern about what they eat.

I personally prefer to visit a place that is not getting too commercialised by online platform like TripAdvisor, then I found this quiet restaurant accidentally when I slow down my bike, located right in the middle of Jalan Tirta Tawar. It caught my eyes because the interior feels pretty homey, structured by colored terracotta bricks.

I went in and I was greeted by a pretty young crew, and what I saw was, the crews are all female. There were only me as a guest. It was quiet, accompanied with Balinese instrumental melody playing behind, and I hope it’s not too early to judge that Bali has never fail to amaze me by how nice the locals are.

My first impression of the foods were amazing. I ordered these gado-gado (Indonesian-style salad) & coconut juice on my first visit. The taste is everything, man. It was so delicious, knowing that they are using local sugar instead of processed sugar. And yes, I am pretty concerned about their ingredients because I like observing these kind of stuffs while I am at the right place. So, yeah!

Another thing that is captivating is. They recycle their food components. For example, they are serving young coconut. But what they are doing with the outer layer of the coconut is, they collect it all and put it across the restaurant and they make it dry. Later I asked the crew, they are using the dried coconut as wood replacement to make the fire, and they’re using it to make the satay. Pretty cool, huh?

Until today, this place has been my regular place to visit every time I’m going back to the center of the island. Foods are great as they offered lots of plant-based delicacies on the menu list. As an additional, this warung (small restaurant-bahasa Indonesia) has some chillin’ Balinese instrument accompanied with Ubud mid-day delicate breeze.
