Taking the best of Ubud’s green environs, Warung Pulau Kelapa puts all its efforts into preserving and refining both the delivery and presentation of Indonesian delicacies. Using fresh ingredients from the warung’s own back yard while maintaining international standards of kitchen preparation it has created an authenticity that takes its guests on a delightful culinary journey of taste and adventure.
Set conveniently on the side of tranquil Sanggingan road, Warung Pulau Kelapa takes on ‘Indonesian classic’ demonstrated by their antique wooden-based interior. With paintings and traditional masks hanging on all its walls, the restaurant is actually a collective compound of cozy eatery that ventures inwards until leading to an organic, functional farm.
At Warung Pulau Kelapa, Indonesian food regains its position as a prime culinary treat. With finely assorted Indonesian classic menus to choose from. Street food (called ‘jajan’), to ‘puter’ ice cream and fine blended specialty coffee are tunes to toe range on offer. I treated myself to the warung’s rijstaffel set menu set. A main menu made from the smorgasbord selection of Indonesian dishes and served with white or yellow rice. Warung Pulau Kelapa’s rijstaffel consists of 5 main menus, 4 side dishes, 3 kind of ‘sambal’ chili sauce, 2 traditional crackers and one bowl of rice. The main menu is varied, from beef rendang, fish with woku sauce to delicious chicken satay. The mild and authentic tastes of fresh Indonesian delicacies’ linger on my mouth long after the meal has finished.
Another unique aspect in this restaurant is that one is allowed to pick one’s own ingredients from the organic farm to be prepared for the meal. The organic farm has plethora of edible plants and healthy ingredients, from the most common to some of the less common.
