The Sari Alam features Padang food in one of Ende's more upmarket interiors, and is a good bet for inexpensive and authentic Indonesian eats.
We paid 56,000 rupiah for a hefty lunch for two, including beef rendang, tasty chilli-fried prawns, coconut milk stew, eggplant and much more. There are plenty of selections from fish to chicken to vegetarian specialties, and you can opt to eat inside a pleasant air-con area, complete with a very modern fountain window.
It's popular for lunchtime with locals -- no beer, but plenty of soft drink selections. It's an easy walk from the Ikhlas and Safari hotels -- coming out of the hotel and facing the street, walk left until you see the sign. Open for lunch and dinner.
