Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka
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.
