Review of Warung Garasi, Ubud

Warung Garasi is located down a hidden lane off the busy Monkey Forest Road in Ubud. It was built in the former garage of a Balinese family, and they have used that theme to deck out the restaurant in motor decorations.

The restaurant is cheap warung style, but the food quality does not reflect that. I have had a very good Thai style curry here before, but on this visit I went for a fried egg dish with tofu and sprouts  covered with peanut sauce. It tasted like Bali!

nasi campurAnother way to compare restaurants to try another staple of menus, the lumpia (spring rolls). These were packed with tasty vegetables.IMG_20141002_134056Something on the menu that we had not seen before, and sounding like it was worth a try, was Balinese wine, red or white. We decided to try the white as the staff member said it was sweeter. It is not arak, as that was also on the menu. Very lemony taste, and for 15,000 rp was a great alternative to more expensive cocktails.
