I think this might be my favorite warung in Ubud, which I realize is an incredibly bold statement to make. The adorable name suggests an adorable restaurant, which does not disappoint. On a quiet street, this small spot has five beautiful, handmade tables, simple, but classy, decor, and some of the friendliest people you'll meet in Ubud. They were so gracious and thankful for my patronage that I was convinced the restaurant was hurting for business or advertising, but a quick glance on TripAdvisor reveals that, nope, they're actually a top-ten restaurant in Ubud. They're just that warm and welcoming.
The guacamole, which came with rice crackers and some thin fried potatoes, was excellent and even a little bit sweet, which I liked. The real treat though was the vegetarian nasi campur (green beans, fried egg, curry vegetables, tempeh, and tofu). The tofu and tempeh were covered in a sauce that was out of this world. It was similar to a smoky BBQ sauce, but that describes only half of the experience; the other half I don't even have words for. At this point, I don't even want to know what the sauce was because it would shatter the mystique.
Putu's was a truly wonderful experience in every sense and I can't recommend it enough.
