Warung Padang Kecag is a restaurant serving local Balinese dishes near Candidasa. The restaurant is in the small coastal village of Sengkidu, which is around 10 minutes’ drive west from the main resort hub of Candidasa and next door to the Candi Beach Resort and Spa. It’s a great spot to head to if you’re on the lookout for local flavours. Main offerings here include seafood platters and the Balinese slow-roast duck called bebek betutu. Some of these menu highlights require advanced bookings, as they take time to prepare. However, favourites available daily include well known Balinese classics such as nasi goreng fried rice and satay chicken sticks.
Dining at Warung Padang Kecag
Among the must-tries, bebek betutu is a popular choice. The stuffed and cooked duck requires a meticulous cooking process. After selecting and blending different traditional spices, the duck is marinated and wrapped in banana or bamboo leaves. It’s then slow-roasted under coconut bark and shell embers and over hot coals for up to 9 hours. Come dinner time, the result is an aromatic and juicy meat that literally slips off the bone. The serving at Warung Padang Kecag comes with a vegetable salad mix and steamed white rice. It serves two for around IDR 250,000 (USD 18).
The seafood platters come with an assortment of satays, fried calamari, steam-wrapped mackerel, fish curry, fried or grilled prawns, and a traditional Balinese salad mix. Each component comes with their own set of sambal chilli dips, sauces and spices. The restaurant can get busy around lunchtime and dinner. There’s seating available in its main dining hall, which is good for family dinners. But if you wish for a more intimate and airy atmosphere, you can try reserving one of their garden gazebos. And if you wish to learn how they cook their great dishes, you can ask their staff for details on their next scheduled cooking class.
