Masterminded by Mr. Laota, a fisherman whose boat sank off of the shores of Bali many moons ago, Warung Laota has been serving Hong Kong style porridge since 2002.
The eatery has come a long way from a simple operation with only four tables, and today its three Bali branches in Jimbaran, Tuban and Kuta stand testament to the quality of its food. Each generous portion of Warung Laota’s porridge contains toppings such as chicken, beef, squid, fish, crab, eel and even frog. Having made his living from the ocean in the past, Mr. Laota also serves fresh seafood prepared in a variety of ways—stir-fried, boiled, deep-fried and stewed. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Jimbaran restaurant runs dim sum cooking stations with around 60 different options. Open daily from 8am to midnight www.warunglaota.id
