Not hungry yet? Let us whet your appetite for all the yum and colorful food you can get while staying in Bali. In the following we will introduce you to our favorite places including personal recommendations! #BaliFoodies




Warung BuMi

Local – $

If you want to try local Indonesian food for the first time we can recommend Warung BuMi! Here you can choose and take the food like on a buffet (the so called Nasi Campur) and the staff will calculate the price depending on how much/what food you take. Food is around 25.000-35.000 IDR and drinks around 10.000 IDR. Vegetarian options are available.
♥️ Chicken sate and peanut sauce
9am – 9pm / Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong (when you get to Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong from the ricefield shortcut, turn right and find it on the right side after 20m)

The Piring Daun

Indian/Local – $

Piring Daun offers a large choice of Indian dishes which mostly have a Naan bread on the side but also Indonesian Nasi Campur. When it gets crowded around lunch time you might need to wait a bit longer, but it’s worth it. PS: Next door you can get the yummiest ice-cream!
11am – 9pm / Jl. Pantai Berawa

Thai Kitchen

Thai – $/$$

Simple but oh so yummy! Thai Kitchen is located in the living room of the owners (a Thai woman who moved to Bali to live with her Balinese husband) which is cozy and relaxed. They serve very delicious and authentic Thai food, all cooked by her!

DKM Dapoer Krismanika

Local – $

Lovers of anything Asian, here’s one more of the good places for you! Our favorite go-to after a long day at work or if we fancy some simple Indo food after all the food porn in Canggu (keep reading and you’ll find out). They offer anything from Nasi Goreng, Mie Goreng and Tami Goreng (some funny crispy noodle dish) to deep fried shrimps to Cap Cay (stir fried veggies) at super affordable prices. Starts from 10.000 IDR for a dish.
Mon-Sun 10am to 10pm / Jl. Pantai Berawa (they have lots of light bulbs hanging in the front)

If you’re craving a strong coffee and some proper bread, then don’t miss out on Coffee & Oven. This authentic bakery isn’t that new to Berawa, but it happened that we tried it just a few weeks ago.

The Lawn

Situated right at the beach front of Batu Bolong / Old Man’s, you can hang out and watch the waves while having a coconut or cocktail. The place used to be quite simple, but has changed lately to become one of the fancier places with an infinity pool and much more. The menu includes fresh fish which is slightly expensive but you can also just come in for a drink or two.

Or you just walk down to any beach, grab a coconut and sit in the sand. #islandlife <3

10am – 10pm/ Jl. Pengubengan, Seminyak

Night Market Nakula

Local – $

If you’re keen to try some more local food, the Nakula market is the place to go for! Most of the food stalls are open for lunch already, but during dusk the market becomes a busy place with all the locals buying their groceries. We love that vibe and the food!
11am to 11pm/ Jl. Nakula, Seminyak 

Jimbaran Local Fishmarket

Local – $

If you go to Jimbaran and you’re into seafood – the fish market is your place! Choose and buy your fresh fish in the hall, go to the other side of the little road and get it grilled as you watch. Order some rice and sambal and let’s begin the feast!
♥️ King prawns
4am – 7pm/ Jl. Pantai Kedonganan, Jimbaran

♥️ Nook Burger
8am – 11pm/ Jl. Umalas 1, Gang Nook No. 1, Seminyak

La Plancha

The best time to go for a drink and/or dinner at La Planche is for sunset. It’s located directly at the beach where you can sip your cocktail while watching the waves roll in and the surfers catching the last rides of the day.
9am – midnight/ Jalan Mesari Beach, Seminyak

Warung Pantai

♥️ Wayan’s Salad
7am -9pm/ Jl. Batu Belig No.14, Kerobokan



Gusto Gelato & Caffé

Ice-Cream – $$

Every now and then, when we need to break out of our Canggu bubble, we arrange to meet our friends at Gusto! Tourists from Jakarta have this place on their Bali itininary for sure and we can’t deny that we love Gusto ice cream either! The setting and interior is not too fancy, but the gelato is just too good to be true!
10am – 9pm/ Jl. Mertanadi No.46B, Kerobokan

In Bali you can easily enjoy a lot of tasty street food on the go. Our must-tries are Terang Bulan (pancake with banana and chocolate or many other choices), Gorengan (fried banana, veggies etc.) or just some good ol’ Nasi Goreng at the road side. Yes, for sure you don’t want to spoil your trip because of Bali belly or food poisening. But to be honest, the only times we ever got Bali belly was after eating at western places haha. You should just  go with your guts when choosing street food stalls and it’ll be fine. Don’t think too much of what could happen and rather enjoy the immersion into the real daily life of Indonesians.

Selamat makan! (Bahasa Indonesia = Enjoy your meal!)
