Default Roadside Warungs

I have always been very careful of eating in Indonesia - just as elsewhere in Asia.

My Japanese wife is more bold and will happily eat from roadside stalls in Manila and Bangkok, which I flatly refuse to do. She is obsessed by food (typical Japanese) and says its the only way to experience the real culture. I see her point but refuse to take the risk.

I recently took her to Jakarta for the first time and had to drag her away from the roadside warungs. She argued that if it looks clean and its freshly cooked it would be ok. I refused to let her eat from them, and close Indonesian friends said even they were pretty careful about where they eat.

Anyone had any good or bad experiences at roadside warungs?

Ahhh the roadside warungs! Always amazes me how such a small place produces such a large amount of really tasty food. But yeah, I think caution should be taken. I used to never eat 'street food' but now I live on Padang n am quite happy to grab a snack on the side of the road. What worries me more than food poinening is, if it's fried, is the old too old!

I would say if you want to eat there no problem... IF you know a local that says it ok for a westerner! Selemat makan

I'm in Bali and eat in warungs all the time...great food and easy on the wallet.
Some warungs are in beautiful settings with decored furniture but, if you mean the travelling road toktok mee guys, I would give them a miss.
