Warung Babi Gul­ing Ibu Oka

Exquisite Taste - - Exquisite Cocktails -

Dis­creetly hid­den but close enough to the tourist trail so as not to be dif­fi­cult to find, is one of Bali's most cel­e­brated eater­ies, Warung Babi Gul­ing Ibu Oka. Lo­cated pretty much in the cen­tre of Ubud on Jalan Te­gal Sari, just be­hind the il­lus­tri­ous Royal Palace, it has a rep­u­ta­tion that spans the globe and is a favourite with both lo­cals and tourists alike, all ea­ger to sam­ple Bali's most fa­mous dish pre­pared and served in the time-hon­oured Ba­li­nese way.

The pigs are cooked close by in Ibu Oka's kitchens and ar­rive by mo­tor­bike be­fore be­ing sliced and served in a tra­di­tional rat­tan bowl with rice, crack­ling, sausage, tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese lawar (spicy veg­eta­bles) and, of course, Ibu Oka's spe­cial se­cret sauce.

With a no-reser­va­tion pol­icy, Warung Babi Gul­ing opens around 10.30 AM and is gen­er­ally full un­til the last of the 30 or so suck­ling pigs is gone.
