BALI FOOD GUIDE

Claudia Lipinski

Claudia Lipinski

When you think of food in Bali, please donโ€™t think of street eats that give you Bali Belly. Although Bali has their fair share of both, there are now literally hundreds of incredible cafes, restaurants and bars to satisfy every single craving you have.

I recently lived in Bali for 5 months and found myself absolutely spoilt for choice. There is literally something for everyone, foodies, vegans, meat eaters, plain Janes, coeliacs, fine diners, cheap eats, you name it, Baliโ€™s got it. And the quality is world class. Some of my favourite restaurants ever live in Bali, competing this the likes of some of my fav Melbourne dining institutions.

I could list hundreds of places to check out, you could literally eat somewhere new every day for a year and still not cover it all.ย  But for now, here are our top 15 must-trys for the next time you find yourself in our favourite Indonesian island.

Koloni

California Cuisine, Marinated in Bali. A hidden jungle oasis in the heart of Canggu that brings you delicious, nutritious food.

Sisterfields

One of the OGs on the Bali Breakfast scene, smack bang in the middle of Seminyak. You will find all of the typical Aussie brunch dishes here. A taste of home, but in Bali. They’ve been doing this for a while so you can be sure to get a quality feed here.

Luigi’s Hot Pizza

Block out Monday night in your diary because Luigi’s is the place to be in Canggu. This open air venue is brings pizza, pasta, drinks and beats in all the right quantities (unlimited). It is a super cool place to chill out, have a boogy and demolish some of the best pizza on the island.

Motel Mexicola

If you’ve never been to Bali, you probably think this is the only restaurant on the island because everyone goes here and everyone shares it on their socials. But there is a reason, and that is because it’ll be one of the funnest feasts you have. Book for a later sitting because once the clock strikes 10pm, the waiters will be pouring free tequila down your throat and you’ll be dancing up on the table tops.

โœ… Try – Calamari
