Nice and spicy!
We searched high and low for some spicy, authentic Balinese food and this is where we found it! The dish they recommended was spicy and the most delicious one we had in Amed by far. A must visit if authentic Balinese is what you’re after!

Charming Owners, Disappointing Food, Three Stars is Generous
Very appealing owners, but we were seriously let down by the food. The good news is that my wife thought her chicken satay was "okay; I'd give it 3.5 stars, although the portion is small and there's not much peanut sauce? (she's a notoriously soft grader). My pepes ikan, on the other hand, was downright poor. This is normally one of my favorite Indonesian dishes. Every other time I've had it I got two grilled banana leaf wrapped packets full of fish, herbs and spices. Warung Mekar's version was quite different. There were two banana leaf packets, all right, but inside was a bunch of carrots and green beans with some fish and a couple of little shrimp. There was no sign it had ever been grilled -- most likely just heated in a saucepan. The carrots were badly undercooked, the green beans edible, the fish added up to much less fish than I'd get in a normal pepes ikan. Maybe this is their "version" of this dish, but, if so, it's a mistake. Seems like they were actually just trying to skimp on the fish. I'd give it two stars because it wasn't downright inedible, but I can't call it anything other than poor.

We went here after wandering around looking for somewhere to eat. We were flagged down by the friendly female owner. She was very nice and helpful but the food just wasn't nice. It didn't start well after our pineapple juice was blended with some plastic wrap. When we pointed it out it was met with a laugh and shrugged shoulders really. Our gado gado was more of a cheap Chinese take away than what we've experienced in many other places in Amed.
