The babi guling (spit-roasted pig) of Ibu Oka Warung is world-famous. You cannot imagine how crowded this humble eating place is!
We ordered the special meal (Rp 25,000, S$3.60, US$2.80) in order to get a bit of everything. The hard (instead of crispy) roast pork is served with rice, offal, blood sausage (yucks) and spiced vegetables.
Despite the rave reviews I received about this eatery, the meal was nothing to shout about. There is better crispy roast pork served in some Singapore restaurants.

Staff busily preparing endless servings of babi guiling for hungry diners.
This world famous eatery looks inconspicuous, and hygiene is sorely lacking but that doesn't deter a steady stream of diners the moment it opens for business. :P
There are tables and chairs but many choose to sit on the floor at low tables inside the bale (pavilion). Since space is limited, people just plonked themselves down wherever there is available seat. This is like an Asian fastfood joint, diners just eat and go within 15 minutes. I presume the owner is laughing all the way to the bank daily. :P
Babi Guling is a very popular dish for Balinese as well as tourists. It can be found almost everywhere. Try it at popular eateries.
