Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka

Standard

Bali is a province of Indonesia. The island is located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. The island is home to most of Indonesia’s Hindu religion. It is known as an island of a thousand temples.  Bali is also the largest tourist destination in the country and is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking and music.

My first destination on vacation this time is Ubud. Ubud is a town of Bali, located amongst rice paddies and steep ravines in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency. One of Bali’s major arts and culture centres, it has developed a large tourism industry.

Ubud tourism focuses on culture, yoga and nature. The Ubud area has forests, rivers, cooler temperatures and less congestion. A number of smaller boutique style hotels are located in and around Ubud, which commonly offer spa treatments or treks up nearby mountains.

The most famous dish at Ubud is Babi Guling Ibu Oka. It is sell Suckling Pig. A suckling pig is slaughtered between the ages of two and six weeks. It’s traditionally cooked whole, often roasted. The meat from suckling pig is pale and tender and the cooked skin is crisp and can be used for pork rinds.

Ibu Oka (Mrs. Oka) has opened 3 restaurants at Ubud district. I usually like to dine in restaurant that located at small alley which also became her residence. The place is more private and the air is cooler in here.

Nasi Campur Spesial (special mixed rice) is the must order in here. Price 30 K. It’s consist of: rice, pork meat topped with green chili, lawar (a dish created from a mixture of vegetables, coconut and minced meat mixed with rich herbs and spices), pork sausage and pig’s skin. The herbs seasoning is so strong, the taste is nearly like ‘jamu’ (Indonesia’s traditional medicine made from herbal & natural materials). The meat itself is tender and the spices are soaked in the meat. Unfortunately, the pig’s skin is too tough to chew. So disappointed, because this is the most dish part that I like, huhuhu….I don’t know why. But as I remember, the last time I came here, the pig’s skin texture is so crispy.

I also order Sop Babi (pork soup). Price 7 K. The ingredients are potatoes, carrot, bean, pork meat. It’s taste sweet. I can’t taste the pig’s broth. I think it’s not a good version of pork soup.

Pork Soup

Over all, the taste is quite nice, but not astonishing!
