Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka in Bali 

Traditional Balinese Cuisine in Ubud

Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka is one of Ubud’s legendary local restaurants. It’s one of the often-mentioned spots for babi guling – the traditional Balinese dish of whole roast pork. Warung Ibu Oka is just across the road from Ubud’s central landmark, the Puri Saren Royal Palace. It’s also right beside the Ubud town communal hall, which regularly features traditional Balinese dance and gamelan rehearsals. This makes this warung (traditional restaurant) a convenient stop for lunch while in the Ubud hub, especially if you’re up for trying something local.

Roast Pork at Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka

Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka retains much of its original charm and décor since first opening in the 70s. This despite its huge popularity. Even Anthony Bourdain dined here once for an episode of one of his popular TV series. You can pick an empty spot among its simple tatami style dining tables inside, or choose a shaded table on its super-mini porch outside. Nothing fancy here. No comprehensive menu. It only serves its single specialty dish. And, like any other traditional warung in Bali, you might find queuing a bit of an issue. Simply make your order loud and clear, then wait to be served.  
 
A common serving of nasi babi guling, or mixed rice plate with roast pork consists of steaming white rice on one side topped with lawar (a mixture of shredded vegetables, coconut and hot chillies), some fried urutan sliced sausages, and a wedge of kulit (crackling pork skin). The pricing can be vary a little at times. Hint: if you ask a local friend or your driver to order, you might get a “local price”. Nevertheless, expect to pay up to USD 5 or IDR 70,000 for a single serving with a cold soft drink or iced tea. Some may find the setting a little dirty. Fair enough, however the queues here speak for themselves. Early sell-outs are common after the lunch time rush.
