is a longtime Bali favorite, and for good reason, the original location is an open-air place at street side in Kuta. But the new space in Seminyak is a big improvement — it’s protected from the road and bustling with people, not beeping motorbikes. If it’s busy, and it often is, don’t be surprised if you end up sharing a table. Gado gado, satay, and curries are all recommended, and the price is right. Fun surprises on the menu include a bagel with smoked marlin, tofu burgers, and Caesar salad. Don’t pass up the daily specials, particularly the fresh fish. The famous Made’s Warung is a restaurant located in two places (Kuta and Seminyak).
The first warung, originally located in Kuta was only a small joint serving traditional snack to rice farmers and surfers. Run by Made’s family, Made’s Warung now become the most popular eatery in Bali with its strategic location, resembles a traditional country house, with wooden warung style tables and a good view of the bustling main road. Made’s Warung has a large garden area with tables and chairs, plus an inside section with the ‘warung style’ tables layout. Warung style means long table and bench seating. I always prefer this to the ‘everyman is an island’ style that westerners go for. Made’s Warung is a people watching place galore, and cool just to sit and sip a drink.
