With over 10 locations in Asia, Bali’s iconic ribs restaurant Naughty Nuri’s Warung has finally opened its doors in Singapore. Located at Capitol Piazza, it’s not your typical warung, but that doesn’t impact the food in any way. The cook on their signature barbecued pork ribs ($18.80 for half rack, $35.80 for full) is sinfully good, rendering the ribs fork-tender with a delightfully sweet, smoky, savoury flavour. They’re best eaten with a dash of lime to cut the richness and the homemade chilli sauce that hits all the right spots.
Another good option for mains is the wagyu steak ($23.50). Great for sharing, Nuri’s Indonesian Pig Out ($79.80) and Nuri’s Western Pig Out ($84.80) let you have a taste of everything. If Asian flavours are more to your palate, try the beef rendang ($9.80) or the hearty Javanese oxtail broth, The Soup Buntut ($6.80).
Wash it down with Nuri’s Signature Martini ($19.50) or a cocktail specially concocted by master mixologist, Ricky Paiva. If, like us, you have a separate compartment for dessert, get the gula melaka crème brûlée ($8.80) that comes with soft coconut ice cream and berries. Otherwise, the weightless mango mousse ($8.80) with lychee granite, pomelo and lime will satisfy your sweet tooth without making you feel like you’ve eaten too much.
