The warung was set up in the middle of nowhere of a palm estate at Juru, Prai. This place is well known to the locals where it will be crowded with people during lunch time. To accommodate the growing number of customers, they had placed a few canopies, table and chairs. But there are no fans available inside the canopies. Just imagine you are dining under the hot sun where only a canopy serves as a barrier between you and the hot sun.
