Warung Pulau Kelapa & Kamasan Bar, One Paradise in Ubud Jun 08, 2013
If you are interested to try the local culinary especially Javanese and Balinese menu in Ubud, Bali, Warung Pulau Kelapa for me is the best option. Compare to other restaurants in Bali, they could serve the most authentic recipe. They make me felt like at home. Indeed they tried to adjust the taste in order not too spicy or oily, but still they are really good in making an authentic taste.
I hate to say that I really disappointed to many others restaurants which tried to adjust the taste in order able being enjoyed by western tourist, but in the fact they ruined the original recipe.
Not to mention the price which really affordable in this restaurant, spend hours in Warung Pulau Kelapa is one of my favorite things to do in Ubud. You can go to their huge herb garden which located in their back yard. Don’t forget to bring your camera as when you are visiting their back garden, its’ mean you will see awesome view of rice field as well. There are a hundred of ducks sometime playing among the rice field. With the blue sky and the green color of those plants, yes, you ll capture amazing pictures.
There is kind of guide who will assist you to look around the herb garden, as there are so many rare plants there and I bet you will surprise to know that some plants which people knew as a flower or just bush plant in the fact could served as a great meals and has function as remedy. The interesting thing is you can ask permission to the restaurantin order you able to pick certain fresh plants by yourself from their garden and let their chef will cook for you.
One of my favorite menus there is Empon-empon. It’s made of seven to nine herbs/plants which each of them usually used as seasoning herbs, but the chef gather all to be one delicious menu. They mixed those with shrimp and replace with tempeh for vegetarian. Empon-empon is really good for health especially when you are not feeling well or too exhausted after the trip. Some ingredients like ginger and other could be a warmer or Yang for your body and yes.. to boost your energy back.
They have 3 kinds of satay. If you like spicy one, you can try Satay Bumbu Rujak/Bumbu Bali. But if you prefer a bit sweet one, you can try Satay Madura which served with peanut sauce and soy ketchup.
Please note that although they also have several menu of vegetable on their list, they are not vegetarian/vegan one. But if you are vegan or vegetarian, you can request special menu for you.
In middle of their area, Warung Pulau Kelapa has new bar named Kamasan bar. They will officially opened July 2013 to serve coffee, mocktail, cocktail and traditional “tapas”. Try their “onde-onde” and lumpia (spring roll); the traditional ‘cake’ from Java -- so far both is the most favorite one of the costumer. For coffee, enjoy their three origin black coffee from Bali, Sumatra and Sulawesi, which brewed by many brewing method. Yes, they have espresso too! Don’t skip the dessert: Espresso Affegato.
All ingredients is fresh, organic and no MSG.
The restaurant is open around 9.30 am – 10.00 pm. The friendly staff will assist you there. Tax is included, but it would be nice if you can leave a little tips for the staff. Enjoy the cozy atmosphere of Javanese antique exterior (traditional joglo house) and interior when you re having delicious and healthy meals there.
How to get here :
a. Rent a taxi/car from central Ubud about 10 minutes (from Ubud Market is cost around 20.000 IDR for one route. The guy from restaurant usually will ask for 35.000 IDR to get back, so make sure you re hire the taxi for pick you up again).

Cheap And Uniquely Javanese Food Dec 05, 2011
The restaurant is housed in a joglo, or traditional Javanese teakwood house, The interior is simple, just wooden benches and tables, but what makes it so special is the sheer ageless beauty of the building and the owner's attention to detail. Who also own the Mask and muppets Museum. He is as down to earth and as artistic and unique as the restaurant can easily represents him. Had a great long talk with him, and surely looking forwards in doing that again in the near future. If you ever fing this guy with his artist hat and long beard, start a conversation with him and he will tell you so much about the religions and politics in Indonesia, all the pros and cons and the history of our culture.
To make everything just perfectly nice the food is simply made to the perfection. nothing fancy but lots of passion and work put together, thats what local dishes s all about, that when you eat you felt the warmth of a home.
