When we went to Ubud, we simply had no idea where to go for lunch. I was thinking about Naughty Nuri’s but later oops I realized Mei doesn’t actually eat pork. Then I remembered, another friend of mine, Gaby, told me about this Murni’s Warung, telling me it was a nice place, serving good food, and all at.
So there we went…
At the first glance, this restaurant looks unconvincing. I mean, it’s located just at the middle of the bridge so I thought, it couldn’t be a big one. Maybe just a small warung. Glad that we didn’t judge too early.
Murni’s Warung is one of those places I’d definitely put on top of my list. It’s a nice restaurant, with beautiful view of a river, cliff, and coconut trees. And yes, they serve good food. What more could I ask for?
There was an art gallery at the front side of the restaurant. We didn’t get to see what’s in there in detail, but it looks artsy.
Once you walk further and further to the back side of the restaurant, oh my, it’s huge. There are a lot of seatings. There’s even more downstairs. I think there are 4 levels in total, just so you can imagine how big it is. We picked the one outdoor so we could see this beautiful view near the river while having lunch.
I had Murni’s Tutu Ayam. It’s a traditional Balinese local dish. The chicken has been slow cooked for about 8 hours with Balinese spices and then served with yellow rice and mixed Balinese veggies (we call it “Urap”).
While Mei had something lighter, I think it’s Sate Lilit or something. Yes, it’s definitely Sate Lilit.
Food was delicious, although not cheap. But the ambience was… superb. I can’t describe it. It really feels like Ubud. You know what I mean? I didn’t take that much photo as it was very relaxing there. Made me wanna leave my camera inside my bag, and just enjoy the place. We did manage to sit on the terrace and we were able to gaze out to the green scenery just beside us, on the river. It’s super nice.
I guess you’re not only paying for the food but also for the place, right? Next time I’ll grab a couple of cakes with coffee 😉 *yes, there will be next time*
