Information before you go
Eating at Sari Organik Ubud is a really unique experience. Not only for the food, but also for its location. It's smack in the middle of the Ubud's rice fields.
If you go for a stroll through the rice fields, you will surely pass it.
To get there you need to head towards Campuan bridge when you come from Ubud Palace. Just before the road turns into a green oasis with huge trees hanging over the road, you turn right up a road that looks more like a driveway.
There's a sign with Sari Organik on it and a phone number. If you want them to pick you up all you need to do is call them.
Be aware though that the rice fields paths are very narrow, so you have to jump on a motor bike to get there. Walking takes about 20 minutes.
Scenes on your way to the restaurant....
Sari Organik is an organization that aims to produce organic products. Their restaurant is actually called Warung Bodag Maliah. So don't get confused once you arrive.
When we were there they were just renovating the restaurant. They were still open for business though and they created a temporary restaurant just in front of the original building.

As mentioned earlier Sari Organik aims at whole and organic food. They use ingredients straight from their organic garden or buy them at farmers who grow chemical free products.
When you walk around you can spot their garden. And if you want you can even pick your own vegetables to create your own dish.
Besides going for drinks and food , it's a good place to relax too...
The menu at Sari Organik is extensive. It starts off with a whole list of all kinds of fresh juices, some with little additionals such as ginger in the carrot apple juice or bell pepper with mixed juice.
My girlfriend and I tried the Green Cleanser Juice which was made from Broccoli, apple, celery and lemon. I'm not sure if it has any health advantages to it.
All I know is that it was really refreshing and I highly recommend it...
Enjoy the refreshing drink with a natural wooden straw!
The long list continues with the dishes. It's so diverse I have no idea where to begin!
First of all they have 10 types of different salads, to which you can add other ingredients. They also serve small dishes that are more tapas-looking such as sundried tomatoes, babaganush and tempura.
And then you have the pizzas and the main courses. The main courses consist of Indonesian food of which many dishes are prepared with tofu. But don't worry they also have chicken and fish dishes.
Grilled tuna from the day menu and vegetable curry for my girlfriend
Other examples are sauteed chicken pesto, grilled tuna steak with yellow curry sauce or the vegetarian kebab.
And to make the choice a bit more difficult they also have daily specials.
If you still have some space left in your stomach or you just feel like something sweet they have wonderful desserts too.
I tried the Balinese crepe, which is a green colored pancake. But other unusual choices are home made sweet potato ice cream, vegan crepe with soya ricotta cheese and Rambutan Pie.
The co lour might look strange, but it tastes delicious...
The pie must be delicious because the Rambutan fruit is definitely one of my favorite tropical fruits. But unfortunately I was too full to try it out.
So I'm sure I'll be back as soon as I visit Bali again...

When I wrote the mail I never really expected a reply. I might have expected a computer generated but never a personally written one. The information you provided is invaluable, thank you so very much. I have been using your website as a bible through Bali. Through your recommendation, I will be heading to Ubud then follow the sightseeing route to the coast of Candidasa.
WOW...what an awesome website. I could only dream that there would be a website like this for all our travel destinations! You guys have done an fabulous job and now, I am sooo excited about our upcoming trip to Bali. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure Bali was the place for us considering some of the travel warnings (we are Americans). But I can tell from your experiences that the Bali people are so very kind and peaceful.
