Make You Feel Like Eating at Home
First to arrive at my table is five skewers of sate lilit (minced meat satay). They are thick, soft, and rich in spices. I think the richness of spices makes Warung Wardani’s sate lilit become the most favorite food. These satays somewhat change my mind about Balinese cuisine. It is not all about big foods. There are some appetizer-like foods, such as these sate lilit, that can satisfy any appetites.
From the length of the food name alone, anyone can tell nasi campur wardani dengan tujuh topping (Balinese mixed rice with seven side dishes) is exceptional. The seven side dishes comprise of: fried shrimp, beef jerky, hardboiled egg in a pindang stock, jackfruit soup, sauteed long bean in kalasan flavor, spicy shredded chicken, minced chicken satay, and beef satay.
I’m reasonably sure that nasi campur wardani dengan tujuh topping is what makes Warung Wardani Bali famous. A riotous assembly of all the preceding side dishes plus a bowl of rice in one plate is a summary of Warung Wardani’s menu list. If you couldn’t decide one food, choose this instead.
