Warung, Hawker, what is the difference?
In Indonesia, local food is consumed in the warung. A warung is a local restaurant where nearly always only local food is served. Most warungs have their specialties. You will find Warungs with dishes from Sumatra (Padang Padang warungs), warungs that sell traditional Java food or, of course, your traditional Balinese delights. These days there are classier warungs that serve a variety of dishes, however, traditionally you will find the most delicious Indonesian cuisine at these local spots. The difference between a warung and a hawker is that a hawker usually travels around whilst selling his good. A warung is a set restaurant. Indonesia has quite some good hawkers too. Especially for bakso or soto ayam you will find some great hawkers spread out over the island.
Eat like a local: hygiene and safety
Street food doesn’t necessarily have the best reputation. We all love the taste of local cuisine, but in terms of hygiene and safety it just doesn’t add up to what we are used to back home. Nothing kills the holiday mood more than a Bali belly or food poisoning, we got you there! You can quite quickly determine if a warung has good standards by checking out its visitors. Are there visitors? And especially, are locals eating at the particular restaurant that you want to get into? Although they have different standards, locals also appreciate hygiene and safety quite a bit. Seeing a warung full of locals usually means that the food is fresh, high volumes are sold and the quality is good. During our Bali street food tours, you will visit a variety of hawkers and warungs which are Bali belly proof – we promise. We take you along great local spots that serve fresh food and get you in touch with some of Indonesia’s most delicious local dishes.
