Warung Bodag Maliah

20 10 2009

Last weekend, I have the chance to go to this “warung” I’ve read on Bali Advertiser. What interest me to go there is it’s situated in the middle of lush rice fields in Ubud as part of Sari Organik Farms and I’ve never seen rice fields in Ubud (I wasn’t aware that Ubud has a very vast rice fields until I came there). On googling and searching for the address I got bits and pieces of where I should go to find this place.
Finally took of with some friends and headed to Ubud on Sunday for a late breakfast and after asking to a beautiful Balinese girl down the road, we finally found it.

To find this place, from Ubud Main Road (Jl. Raya Ubud), head west to Campuhan, just before Campuhan Bridge, there’s a small ascending road on right hand side to Abangan Bungalow. From there park next to the bungalow (if you’re driving) and then continue the journey on foot since the road is not passable by car. It takes about 800 metres to reach the warung from the entrance. If you’re riding a motorbike you can still go through the road and park in the warung or call them and ask them to pick you up. But I prefer to walk just like many of the guests I met along the road because you will never get bored of the sight and panoramic view of the lush rice fields and surroundings.

The name of the “warung” is Bodag Maliah which means overflowing basket in Balinese. As the name of the farms it is located in (Sari Organik), all menu served in this place are organic. It’s just as fresh as you can get since the rice, fruits, and vegetables are locally grown and they’re organic. Organic and Raw food lovers will find this place awesome.

The warung itself has cool relaxing atmosphere and cozy, not to mention the surrounding view. Got the chance to talk with Ibu Nila, the owner of the warung and farm who run the place with her husband, she said it’s been 3 years and the word about this place spreads from people to people as the place always has visitors from all around the world.

Me and my friends ordered Warm Feta Cheese Salad, Chicken Salad, and Beet Salad. As for the very fresh drinks, we had Kambucha Tea (tea that comes from fermenting Kombucha mushroom and it’s believed to be beneficial to health; my mom used to make this drink many years ago), Lemon Squash, and Pink Treat (blended sweet potato, beet, pineapple, apple, mint).

There are main course available, but since we went there for a late breakfast and was going to eat at another place afterward we only ate appetizers. After done eating, you can continue walking around the farm or walk back to where you came from and quickly come back there any time soon 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2009

6 01 2009

December was my longest holiday this year. Out of 20 working days (public holidays not included), I only worked like less than 8 days. I took my leave from 9-19 Dec. Back to Bali just to work for another 3 days (22-24 Dec) and got back to Jakarta again on 24th afternoon. Collective leave for Christmas and New Year from 26 until 2nd January was too good to be spent in Bali as Bali was totally crowded with tourists from Christmas until New Year.

For my first leave from 9-19 Dec, had to go back to Jakarta because of my cousin’s wedding and had to be best man for him. But after the wedding, me and my relatives went for a tour de Java on chartered bus. The route taken was Bekasi – Tasikmalaya – Magelang (Borobudur) – Yogyakarta – Solo (Surakarta) – Mount Bromo – Malang – Surabaya – Tuban – Semarang – Cirebon – Bekasi in just 5 days and the only day we all slept in a hotel was in Surabaya…totally ass-torturing trip O.o
But it was worth the journey…

Lovina-Menjangan (17-18 August 2008)

30 08 2008

On Indonesia’s 63th Independence, me and my friends went to an area on north of Bali called Lovina.

North of Bali is famous for it’s marine tourism.

17 August 2008

We departed from Tuban, Kuta area at 8am using 2 cars and 5 motorcycles. The route was heading straight north from Kuta via Bedugul. The whole trip to Lovina took about 3 hours in total. After checking in at the guest house (took 2 different guest houses to accommodate all of us), we went for lunch and some did their pray first before going to Labuhan Lalang (North-West of Bali). One comment on my guest house is, it wasn’t the dirtiest place I’ve seen but 50000rp/room for two is decent if you’re going to use the place strictly to rest and not fancying anything like room service, tv set, hot water (it’s beach and you surely do not need hot water).

Our destination for that day was Menjangan Island which is a great spot for diving and snorkeling. The trip to Labuhan Lalang took about 2 hours and then about 30 minutes by boat to the island.

Naughty Nuri’s Warung

27 07 2008

Last Thursday, my friends (Ria, Jeffry, Purwo, and Cahyo) and me were going to this one Warung (famous for it’s ribs, steak, and BBQ, especially among expats). It was Naughty Nuri’s Warung.

The location is on Jl. Senggingan, Ubud. Just straight ahead from Monkey Forest Road, right across Neka Art Museum. I got that one AFTER got through some twists and turns on our way there because there were none of us ever go there but we didn’t actually got lost, we actually took the long way via Gianyar. The long way actually brought us to go through a different whole world, a place full of art museum, galleries, cafes, restaurant, and the cool weather which was really different from the “usual” Bali. Ubud is actually famous for it’s cultural activities, artists, and writers (you might heard of Ubud’s Writers and Readers Festival).

To go there, just ask people how do you get to “Bebek Bengil”, a famous duck restaurant in Ubud (or see the billboard sign around Ubud), and ask where do you go from there. This is what I ate, a juicy Spare Ribs. My other friends ate Tuna Sandwiches and Roasted Chicken. The ribs cost me 55,000 rupiahs or equal to 7 US$ (with today’s exchange rate). I can assure you that it was worth the price.
