Warung Mak Beng’s Fish Soup

This Balinese bouillabaisse is made up of a hearty cut of fish, slices of white radish, and cucumber. All is then slowly cooked with a braised blend of garlic, shallots, ginger, galangal, turmeric, lemongrass, bay leaf, and lime. A typical serving of Warung Mak Beng usually comes with steamed white rice, a meaty portion of fried tuna or mackerel, and a generous serving of spicy chilli sambal dip on the side. Considering the herbs and spices used to make its stock, it’s a spicy infusion and is served hot. If it’s too much for you to handle, you can choose from the less spicy fried options.

This legendary Sanur restaurant has been in business since 1941. Queues usually get long during lunchtime and don’t be surprised to see people waiting patiently for others before them to finish before being seated. Despite its longstanding success, Mak Beng has managed to retain its humble atmosphere. The heat of the spices is sometimes matched by the temperature; no air conditioners here, only fans and seaside breezes. Even with such simple offerings, this warung continues to attract diners with its cheap prices, clean dining settings and its good Sanur seaside location. You can enjoy the standard serving at IDR 45,000 (USD 3.15).
