The ultimate in eco-food! This new restaurant specializes in traditional Ende food. All ingredients are produced locally, in a hamlet close to Wologai. No fertilizer or pesticides used, instead the ceremonies for planting and harvest are performed as required by the adat. The cutlery, cups and plates, are also made of local materials: bamboo, wood, coconut shells, and earthenware
The restaurant can serve you from 8am to 10pm, but you have to order in advance as preparation takes time and they only serve freshly prepared food.
Favorite Dish: Do not expect items on the menu that you find in most Indonesian restaurants. We were offered a surprise dinner as follows:
4 teh kemangi (lemon basil tea) @ 5000
1 ubi jalar (sweet potatoes) @ 5000
1 ubi hitam (black potatoes) @ 5000
2 nasi merah (red rice) @ 5000
1 ikan bakar (kakap) (grilled fish) @ 30,000
2 ikan juah (another fresh water fish dish) @ 7500
1 ngela/urap (pepaya leaves) @ 5000
1 sayur paria (kind of gourd) @ 5000
1 sambal (chilli condiment) @ 2000
Total bill for two: Rp 97,000 (about USD 11).

Almost every tourist knows you can buy on Flores Island the most beautiful, famous Ikats (see link). Actually I had never seen Ikat fabrics before, just heard about. Watching at all those hand-weaven Ikat clothes you cannot imagine these Ikats are so wanted! So if you are on Flores find yourself some of the ikat places (mostly a market place at specific days, so ask around) ad spoil yourself for an Ikat.
What to buy: The name of "Ikat" is a Malaysian one. Though the ikat-method is well-known all over the world when hand-weaving. In Guatamala the name is "Jaspe", in Japan "Kasuri" and Thailand knows the "Matmee/Mudmee". I bought several Ikat's (size of a big shawl) in Ende at pasar-location (included the black one out of Sumba), and some in Labuhan Bajo ...
Labuhan Bajo - Sumbawa Ikat
What to pay: The black one was about 10$, keep bargain!
