Warung Makan Sederhana (Modest Food Stall) is the name it bears. However, the menus presented are not modest, but belong to international standard so that can be enjoyed by anyone. Foreign tourists much love it. Even, they make it a favorite food stall located at Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai 208 Sanur Kaja. The menus served comprise the Indonesian and Chinese food. Meanwhile, the prices set are very affordable with definitely good taste and quality.
Among a dozen of menus on offer, the most special and best favored by customers is steak with Balinese seasoning and vegetable seasoning. Both foreign and domestic tourists love best this menu.
Meanwhile, the (pork) bone soup with grilled ribs is more preferred by local communities. “However, foreign tourists also like this bone soup and grilled rib. There are always foreign tourists who drop by to eat,” said the Manager, Ida Ayu Sri Astuti Perbawa.
The food stall pioneered by Ida Ayu Alit Rusmanadhi in 1984 indeed targeted mixed market. Domestic tourists from Jakarta, Surabaya and other regions in Sumatra had been familiar to eat here. Meanwhile, local residents, many Japanese and Chinese tourists as well as tourists from other countries also liked to taste the traditional food served internationally. “The most repeaters are local residents,” said the former hotel employee bearing a bachelor degree in the economics.
Ayu Sri added that those local residents mostly stayed in Denpasar and surrounding areas. Meanwhile, other customers were also from Nusa Dua and Ubud but their number was only a few. “Originally, the food stall of Mrs. Dayu was very small only accommodating 3 tables. In keeping with the growing customers, we add more tables and now we have 8 tables,” said the two-son mother. (BTN/015)
