Ayam Betutu is one of original balinese foods. It’s not for everyone tough. The taste of the herbs are really really strong. If you don’t like tasty food, you won’t like this. But if you do.. you’ll loveeee this ayam betutu. Mostly it consists of turmeric, ginger, nutmeg, onion, garlic, cassava and chilies. The taste is quite different between places. You can find its receipt here.
You can find this ayam betutu everywhere in Bali from low class warung to stand at the mall. I listed some nice one that I have tried here:
First and the best is Warung Makan Bu Kadek Wati.. phone: 0361.7441495.. google maps -8.635758,115.216455. The chicken is so soft, the taste is nice and strong and it’s really really cheap.. only 8K! photo above was taken at this warung.. the place quite small.. it’s like 4 x 12m.. with 2 long tables on the side facing the wall.. 1 big long table in the middle.. normally very busy during lunch time.. and the food normally finish around 1 – 2 PM..
Second, Warung Bu Adnyana.. google maps -8.64889,115.219738.. the chicken is also soft.. the taste is quite different.. softer than the first one.. but still so nice.. it’s 35K otherwise.. the place is like 5 x 16.. not too busy.. they normally close around 5 PM..
Third, Ayam Betutu Men Tempeh Gilimanuk.. it’s in old Gilimanuk Terminal.. I haven’t eat this food for quite a while.. it’s really far from Denpasar.. it’s like 3 hours drive.. but if you drive from Denpasar to Java or vice versa.. you should go to this warung.. Chicken is so soft and nice.. it’s specially super HOT.. hot but you can’t stop haha.. last time the price around 70K for 1 whole chicken.. not sure now..
Forth, Stand Waybe at Beachwalk Eat n Eat area.. if you are not a typical food hunter.. you can go to beachwalk mall in Kuta Beach.. top floor where the food court is.. you’ll find stand waybe.. they sell balinese food.. the taste is ok.. price quite high.. but at least you know..
