Ubud’s delicious pork restaurants

Bali is one area in Indonesia where pork is a common dish on the menu. A variety of pork dishes are available on the island, including in Ubud, an area famous for its culinary attractions. Ubud offers you a selection of pork dishes prepared using different methods, from roadside restaurants to one with a rice field view. If you ever find yourself longing for some pork delicacies then here are some of the places in Ubud, each with their own way of serving the meat.

 

Roast suckling pig at Warung Ibu Oka

Well, it is only normal that this list starts with Warung Ibu Oka as the first to be mentioned. The restaurant is very famous and the sight of people waiting for seats is common. It is not an overstatement to say that this place attracts many food lovers who drive all the way to Ubud to get a taste of the famous roast suckling pig. If you don’t believe my judgment then you should listen to Anthony Bourdain, the famous chef who said on his television show that Warung Ibu Oka offered the best roast suckling pig that he ever had. The other good part is that you won’t have to pay more than US$3.

For an alternative, if you are not too fond of over-crowded places, then you can get exactly the same meal at its branch Ibu Oka 2 or at Warung Rai Pasti, which is owned by Ibu Oka’s sister.

Jl. Suweta/Tegal Sari no.2

Jl. Raya Teges/Peliatan

Pork culets at D’Basket

The price of beef has been soaring in the past few months, making it a good idea to develop a taste for steak made from pork. D’Basket might not be as big as the other places on this list, but they do provide a nice dish of pork cutlets. The place is more laid-back and comfortable compared to the rush of Warung Ibu Oka and it’s not unusual to see people having conversations with their friends for hours after their meal is done; they also seem satisfied when their beer comes with refrigerated glasses – a little touch that counts. A large cutlet will only set you back Rp. 35,000 (US$4).

Tonkatsu at Kagemusha

When you crave Japanese cooking, Kagemusha might be a good place to visit. Its small sign on the side of the road can easily be missed, especially since the restaurant isn’t directly beside it – Kagemusha is located 20 meters away from the main road. With a rice field right beside the building, the best seat in the restaurant offers you a stunning view. There’s no sushi on the restaurant’s extensive menu, but teriyaki, katsu, udon, curry, tempura and miso soup, are available. The place used to import ingredients from Japan, but they have stopped since the nuclear crisis to avoid contaminated food. The tonkatsu (deep-fried pork) might not be special, but it sure is a nice change from the usual grilled pork dishes with affordable price of US$5. You can find plenty of Japanese people eating in this place; that should be a positive sign, right?

Jl. Pengosekan

 

Pork ribs at Naughty Nuri’s Warung

Naughty Nuri’s Warung already has a couple of branches in Batu Belig and Seminyak and also another two restaurants in Jakarta. But the place in Ubud is one that started it all by serving a generous portion of pork ribs. They have a normal-size portion of the ribs for Rp. 40,000 (US$4.16). If you consider yourself a heavy eater, then ordering the large serving of the ribs will not be a problem for you – it also costs twice as much, though. Even though the place is located beside a big road in Ubud, it is quite a long way from the crowds. The place uses big tables, so you probably have to share with other groups when the place is flocked by many visitors.

Located at:

Jl. Raya Sanggingan

    I think Bali is easy to get the pork in Indonesia since the majority of the people are Moslem. This is because the majority of the population of Bali are Hindu.

    It's pretty rare to find a good ham in traditional restaurants in Indonesia. But I'm sure the big hotels serve it.
