Good deal in Bali: the Warung Padang Kecag restaurant

One of the good deals you can make when you travel on the amazing Bali island is to come and eat at the  “Warung Padang Kecag” restaurant. Located in Candidasa, the couple of owners is extremely sympathetic. (…)

(…) the “added value”, and the ladies will surely appreciate, is that you can make purchases with the help of the spouse in the small shop close to the tables, while the husband is cooking some awesome meals in the kitchen.
Yummy  🙂 !
