Nasi campur, (Indonesian/Malay: "mixed rice", also called nasi rames in Indonesia), refers to a dish of a scoop of nasi putih (white rice) accompanied by small portions of a number of other dishes, which includes various meats, vegetables, peanuts, eggs and fried-shrimp krupuk.
Nasi campur (nasi = rice, campur = mix) is a local Indonesian dish eaten by thousands of people every day. Super affordable and available on most streets, nasi campur is the staple diet for many locals and no trip to Bali is complete without trying it at least once.
The dish centers around rice (usually white but some places may also offer other varieties like brown or red rice) and then you can choose a mixture of several side dishes such as vegetables, tofu, tempe, boiled or fried egg, mie noodles, chicken and fish.
A "warung" is a small local restaurant and most warungs serve nasi campur. Some warungs are very basic, while others cater to tourists and have a larger menu.
Nasi campur can usually be found behind a glass case, where various dishes are displayed. Simply point at what you want and the staff will start piling up your plate.

Nasi campur sometimes may not look the most appetizing, but that's not to say that it's short on taste. More often than not you will be surprised at just how delicious a plate of nasi campur can be.
The price depends on the type of dishes you choose and whether this includes meat or not. Generally speaking, a plate of nasi campur can cost anywhere between Rp. 7,000 and Rp. 25,000.
It's recommended to try nasi campur more than just once, as different warungs serve different dishes.
It's really not difficult to find nasi campur in Bali. Just take a walk down the street and you should find a local warung offering not only nasi campur, but also other Indonesian favorites like nasi goreng and cap cai.

Ordering a plate of nasi campur in the tourist areas shouldn't be a problem as most people understand at least basic English. However if you've gone a little off the beaten track and are visiting a local village, it may be useful to know what to do and say the local way!
