Good Golly, Miss Agnes

Kind to the Palate and the Pocketbook: Waroeng Miss Agnes 1932 in Tuban, South Kuta, Bali.

(7/6/2010) In an Island world famous for its wide choice of dining options, a small roadside restaurant in Tuban, South Kuta that billed itself as "homey, healthy" and serving "sexy Indonesian cuisine" peaked my interest, prompting a recent visit to "Miss Agnes 1932." on Jalan Wana Segara No. 10x.

In charge and welcoming guests is the proprietor-owner, Mr. Frederic Ferry Adiwiganda, known to hundreds twitter followers as [SuperFrederic], a well-trained international hotelier who has worked for both the Nikko and Oberoi chains, including an assignment in New Delhi, India.

Claiming lineage that is Malaysian, Manadonese and Welsh Frederic's epicurean bents are as diverse as his genealogy. As a result, his menu is so diverse that it's hard to decide which item to choose. And, given the very low prices, I surrendered to temptation ordering a range of samplings.

Miss Agnes 1932, says Frederic, is named in honor of a grand aunt whose culinary skills are a family legend. The small restaurant, is a career oasis; a breather while he contemplates the next step in his hospitality-tourism career.
