Respond to Review of Dayu's Warung
by claireabella

Review: Dayu is so passionate about good healthy food, that she decided to open a restaurant. Organic fruit and vegetables are used whereever possible. The dishes are mainly Indonesian but with a twist; there are some uncommon but very welcome ingredients / flavor combinations. There are 6 teas. Fresh juices are around $1. Mixed juices are around $2. Some of the combinations include: Local tamarind, holy basil, coconut water & honey. Avocado, chocolate, mint & coconut. Sounds great! I had a young coconut. ( For some reason they are fairly tasteless here in Bali, while the yield is really high. Coconuts are so much tastier in Thailand, not sure why.) Vegans should be fairly happy with the breakfast menu. There are oats with coconut milk, banana and almond. Black rice pancakes with grated coconut and banana. Tofu or tempeh omlettes. Just double check that they are vegan as there was a little ambiguity due to a slight language barrier. I chose a couple of starters that were both raw. Usually, I avoid raw foods cooked in a non airconditioned asian kitchen, for obvious reasons! Mini pizza - Diakon, beetroot, guacamole, tomato & grated coconut. It was really tasty. While there wasn't an enormous amount of guacamole it certainly provided the flavor lift of the dish - raw garlic and tiny shreds of lime leaves really hit you. The fresh spring rolls arrived with a sweet sauce drizzled all over the plate. I was worried that it was honey but it was a palm sugar sauce. The rolls were fresh and crunchy, tamarind sauce had the right balance. There are 4 organic salads that all sounded great. $3 = happy days. 3 vegan soups and 2 raw soups are available, all will set you back $2. Mains are all focused on tofu or tempeh with vegetables. I wish I had the time for a return visit to try the tempeh mango curry or creamy mung bean dahl with tofu & almond or tempeh satay on mashed sweet potato with avocado salsa. Somewhat surprisingly for a restaurant like this, there non veg options. All of which contain chicken. The staff were great. There is strong free wifi. Seating is available both upstairs and downstairs. Located 20m north of the slightly more popular Warung Sopa. Enjoy.
