There are easier ways to spice up your life than being an apprentice fire sword-swallower, showing up with a pepper spray or telling your mother-in-law she’s wrong. Stay out of trouble with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indonesian halal cuisine at Warung Lele Restaurant.
Jammed elbow-to-elbow with spicy, satiety-seekers, Warug Lele is the ideal spot for those interested in authentic, tongue-tingling action. Feast on a riveting range of Indonesian dishes, designed to be shared – or fought over. Stake your claim on juicy chunks of sticky sweet marinated BBQ chicken (ayam bakar bumbu santan, $8) or row over succulent sliced dry beef rending (sapi lapis Surabaya, $8.50). Sink your chompers into the day’s freshest cash with spicy sambal prawns (udang sambal, $12) and chewy squid doused with padang chili or sweet BBQ sauce (cumi sambal or cumi bakar, $11). Keep tastebuds guessing with the K.O combo of crunch and intense heat with deep-fried gurame fish (gurame goring sambal, $30) or tone down the temperature with a balinese fried patin fish in sweet and spicy sauce (lele sambal mata, $26).
Make your momma proud by chowing down on greens – Warung Lele keeps them fresh, crunchy and varied with kangkong sambal belacan ($7.50) and baby kalian with oyster sauce (kalian tiram, $7.50). Leave room for a calorie-heaving roster of desserts – a cloyingly sweet bowl of cendol ($2.50), the coconut heaven of onde-onde ($2.20), or a colourful mixed bag of kueh ($2) will soothe any burning bellies.

“Padang style curry chicken - close decision, but yes this is slightly better than its Ayam Opor counterpart from Sabar Menanti. Fragrant curry with just enough chillies to make it a little bit spicier. Chicken was wonderfully tender too….Kangkong vegetable stir-fried with sambal belacan - I think the vegetable dishes were more satisfying than many of the other dishes we had, and with good reason. They were fresh, sweet and in this case, spicy. Yums.” – The Simplest Aphrodisiac Blog review
“We went to Warung Lele for lunch, an Indonesian restaurant that used to be at Kandahar Street. It's now at 8 Shenton Way and it's perpetually packed at lunch. Service is efficient and business is brisk. The restaurant is relatively bare, minimal, no-fuss, almost clinical, with tables jammed so close, if not for the very boisterous noise level of the small-ish space, you can practically hear the next table's conversation without even trying to eavesdrop. Food is reasonable and quite fair. We liked it.” - The Hungry Bunnie Blog review
“We started off with Sate Ayam ($7.50 for 6 sticks), Jakarta skewered marinated chicken served with homemade peanut sauce. This was very good, thick chunky pieces of juicy chicken meat that was tender, and coated with a sticky sweet sauce that was caramelised and smoky from the grill. The Ayam Bakar Bumbu Santan ($7.50) cilandak homemade marinated BBQ chicken, drenched in a thick, paste-like sambal, was another great dish. Chicken was char-grilled so it had that smoky texture and flavour, but retained its juices. The Sayur Lodeh ($7) with cabbage, long beans, carrot, firm beancurd and young jackfruit in a coconut gravy was rich, creamy and full-bodied. Perfect for ladling oodles of it onto steaming hot white rice.” - Food Buzz Blog review
