Sipping Teh Tarik in Bali

Have you experienced a snacking binge that just won’t stop even after a hearty meal? You know, you are full but your taste buds are not. That’s what I and my friends experienced recently when we were on our way home from Kerobokan. Suddenly, a sign on the Jalan Raya Kerobokan that read “Roti Canai & Teh Tarik” was just exactly what we need.

The mamak stall (or so they call warung that sells roti canai in Malaysia) official name is Warung Bunana. It is a small place smacked in the busy export street. Our entrance was fragrantly welcomed by a delicious aroma of martabak being fried. The menu consists of roti canai assortment with various toppings and fillings, accompanied with three choices of curry: vegetable, chicken and mutton. The portion also comes in two sizes, small and large.

While waiting, we were entertained by a very skillful teh tarik bartender, pulling the tea up and down. The outcome of the pulling up and down was a frothy tea milk, optionally served hot or cold. Mine was cold and it was just perfect for the warm night. It tasted fresh, light and not to sweet, moreover goes very well with the roti canai and richly spiced chicken curry. The large portion was enough to fulfill all four of our snacking appetite. A small note on the roti canai, it’s a good size, flaky buttered roti.

To close our night, a large roti banana cheese and chocolate was just sweetly perfect. The banana was puréed and put inside the crispy roti with cheese while the chocolate was poured on the top. The staffs are very nice especially after getting hundred questions a day on portion sizes and ingredients, by customers unfamiliar with Indian food. It’s a small, no nonsense and good value eatery where you can meet your friends and mused over the authentically made teh tarik.

Warung Bunana. Jl. Raya Kerobokan. Open from 10.00 - 22.00.
