As the capital city of Bali, Denpasar is jam-packed with countless of age-old eateries that dish out tantalising local delights by the dozen. During my recent visit, I came across three shops that are within walking distance of each other in the northern part of the city: Sate Plecing Arjuna, Warung Wardani, and Warung Satria. After having a go at the Nasi Campur(mixed rice) over at Warung Wardani, I opted to take the three-minute walk to Warung Satria for another round of mixed rice.
Warung Satria was established in 1970 and has garnered a nationwide acknowledgement as one of the must-visit restaurants on the island. Even food bloggers have sung the praises of this shop’s signature dishes, which must tell you something about its reputation. It has four outlets in total, all located in Denpasar and Kuta.
My watch showed it was 3.30pm when I entered the establishment. Lunchtime had long ended, so there were no other customers apart from my good self. Since I’ve already had lunch beforehand, I planned to have a few nibbles out of its Nasi Campur just to find out how it tasted. Unfortunately, after a couple of spoonfuls, I couldn’t resist its delightfulness and ended up golloping it down until the very last piece of rice.
Consisting of spicy chicken slices, a chunk of chicken, Sate Lilit (minced fish satay), beef satay, boiled egg, crispy chicken intestine, crispy shrimp, and long beans, they form the perfect combination that could easily break down the willpower of any normal human being looking to watch his/her body weight, including myself. What differentiates this Nasi Campur from its counterparts is the bowl of Sup Sayur Nangka (stewed jackfruit in chicken soup) that is served alongside the mixed rice. Also, its sambal uses chilli slices instead of minced chilli, which renders it even spicier.
