Last week I mentioned that warungs are my favourite places to eat in Bali and this week I want to share another winner. Warung Kultur Seminyak is a delightful family-owned eating house serving delicious authentic Indonesian cuisine in a rustic setting. No trip to Seminyak would be complete without a visit to Kultur. Read on for all the details …
Warung Kultur Seminyak Overview
We decided to dine at Warung Kultur Seminyak due to the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. It is a little tricky to find and because our incompetent taxi driver got lost and dropped us off in completely the wrong spot we had a lengthy trudge to the restaurant. I almost gave up but I am so glad we persisted. Warung Kultur prides itself on using the freshest local ingredients to make traditional dishes that have delighted diners since 2013. What Warung Kultur Seminyak lacks in size it make up for in ambience amid walls dotted with authentic Indonesian antiques. The menu is tight but most will find something pleasing as there are a handful of western dishes for the less adventurous. Beer was the only alcohol on the menu so while The Hubs’ was sorted I was left craving an icy glass of white all night.
The Hubs and I usually share an entrée as we are not massive eaters. When we visited Warung Kultur Seminyak however the hubs had his heart set on the signature spring rolls while I couldn’t go past the corn fritters. The chicken, prawn and vegetable spring rolls delighted The Hubs yet I wouldn’t touch them because I cannot stand prawns. They came with two types of Chili sauce and were generous in size. The little salsa was a surprise hit of the dish and was simple and delicious. He must have enjoyed them because he proclaimed them the best spring rolls he has ever eaten which is a massive claim. The Hubs’ food came quickly but my entrée did not arrive until mid-way through my main course which I thought was strange. When my entrée did arrive I had already started my main so I wasn’t able to eat a lot. While pleasant and full of flavour the fritters were a just a little too oily for my liking.
The Main Event
I settled on the Beef Rendang rather than the Kare Ayam as it is one of my very favourite curries. The ridiculously tender beef came smothered in a rich, hearty gravy which was so moorish. My one complaint was that I would have like more sauce. Fluffy white rice on the side was perfect for soaking up the rich sauce. The Hubs’ generously sized Bumbu Rujak Chicken was perfectly cooked and swimming in a delicate sweet chili red curry sauce. I couldn’t resist a mouthful and it was divine.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Warung Kultur Seminyak. The food was delicious, the service was efficient and the prices were tiny. Don’t just take my word for it, read 250 other reviews on Trip Advisor. Make sure you check out more of my Bali Restaurant reviews here before you dine out again.
