  • Warung Taliwang, (Near Hotel La'mbitu). Opens at night. Roadside stall always packed with locals. They serve whole grilled chickens smothered in a mildly spicy Sumbawan Taliwang sauce and a range of sides, including rice, of course. The chickens are small, apparently free-range due to their size and might be enough for 1-2 people. A grocery store is located directly accross from it where you may purchase drinks. Ask around for the location, the locals know it and lineup for take-out around dinner time. 50,000.  edit
