Bali: Warung Adnyana


” Having been around for more than 60 years, Warung Adnyana isn’t only able to catch the attention of the Indonesian culinary expert. Soekarno, the first president of Indonesia, used to be their loyal customer too. 

“Warung Adnyana is William Wongso’s favourite restaurant.” The sentence was written in “100 Mak Nyus Bali” book, which instantly piqued my curiosity. Without hesitation, I scheduled my trip to Warung Adnyana.

During my visit, I learned a new fact about Warung Adnyana. The restaurant was established by a Balinese woman named Raka Karini.  Having been around for more than 60 years, Warung Adnyana isn’t only able to catch the attention of the Indonesian culinary expert. Soekarno, the first president of Indonesia, used to be their loyal customer too. “Whenever he went to Bali, his personal aide would be coming here to get some food,” shares one of the staffs.

Warung Adnyana is specialising in Balinese chicken dishes. One of the signature dishes is Sate Serapah. This one-of-a-kind satay is made from a mixture of Balinese spices including turmeric, onion, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and candlenut. The spices are fried without oil resulting a pleasant aroma to the dish. In one bite, you could feel a burst of savoury flavour from the satay roam inside your mouth. Like any other Balinese food, it leaves a spicy aftertaste. According to the staff, it’s best to enjoy Sate Serapah with tipat (rice cake wrapped in banana leaves).

If you need a break from a pork fiesta in Bali, a quick trip to Warung Adnyana is highly recommended.
