Warungs of Indonesia

Warungs are a way of life here in Indonesia. They can be found almost everywhere in this archipelago. In fact, their existence can be found even before the colonial times. These warungs can range from small cigarette shops to cafes to fully blown local restaurants. The word actually means street side shop, but in today’s Indonesia, it means more a place which sells food.

Inside a Warung at Banyuwangi, Indonesia
If traditional food is what you wish to have in Indonesia, you have to go to a Warung. The dishes sold in a Warung vary with location. There are generally no menus and no one speaks English, but if you can bye-pass all that, you can taste some delicious local food. Even though I am a vegetarian and a foreigner who dibbles and dabbles in Bahasa Indonesia, I get what I want and end up going with a full stomach and a contented smile and all of this for a very low cost. I would always recommend warungs if you want to taste the local Indonesian food.
