The Balinese Warung

A warung is an Indonesian term for a small roadside stall that sells snacks, drinks and convenient household items. However, in Bali a warung is also the local coffee house, corner store and community meeting spot for neighbours to sit and exchange the latest news or gossip.

Meals on Wheels - The Food Carts of Bali

Most Indonesians eat a substantial meal of rice, meat and vegetables three times a day, but they are also in the habit of constantly snacking in between. One of the delightful conveniences of living in Indonesia is that food is available almost everywhere. Small roadside stalls known as warungs serve all sorts of treats and vendors pushing food carts are similar to mobile canteens. These brightly painted two-wheeled trolleys travel the streets day and night serving hot and cold snacks to locals wanting to ease their pangs of hunger in a no fuss manner.

Big line-up for Bali festival
Jul 29, 2006

Organisers of the third Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, to be held in Bali, have scored a coup in attracting the brilliant British historian and writer William Dalrymple to take part in this year’s event. Other literary guests include Australian author Robert Drewe, discussing his latest book, Grace; ABC foreign correspondent Eric Campbell, who writes about some of the world’s most dysfunctional places in his book, Absurdistan; Chinese author Su Tong, of Raise the Red Lantern fame; and Afro-Cuban poet, novelist and activist Dionne Brand, who lives in Toronto. Dalrymple, 41, is acclaimed for his vast knowledge of India, Asia and the Middle East, on which he draws for a succession of absorbing bestsellers. He has the rare gift of writing popular non-fiction books which are also highly acclaimed by scholars and historians. His impressive collection of literary awards started with his first book, In Xanadu, published when he was 24, following a sixmonth exploration of the ancient Silk Road from Jerusalem to Shangdu, or Xanadu, in Outer Mongolia. His sixth and latest book, The Last Mughal: The Eclipse of a Dynasty, will be published in October. The four-day festival runs from September 30 to October 3, with workshops starting on September 28. More than 70 Indonesian and international poets and writers will take part in discussions, readings, literary lunches, cultural tours and performances.
