Bali Travel Guide for Foodies

I’ve just returned from the most magical two weeks in Bali and can finally see what all the hype is about. This Indonesian island is a truly special place. The scenery ranges from picturesque sandy beaches with turquoise ocean to vibrant green jungle complete with monkeys who will jump all over you! I was blown away by the food, which was largely healthy, organic, vegan, sustainably sourced, environmentally friendly and often gluten-free too! So today I’m sharing all my favourite spots to eat in Seminyak, Ubud, Canggu and Uluwatu.

Seminyak

Café Organic (brunch)

From exquisitely decorated açaí bowls served in a coconut shell to vibrant mermaid lattes, it’s no wonder Café Organic has become such an Instagram sensation! We ordered tropical fruit served in a pineapple with crunchy granola and wild honey, as well as the smashed avocado on sourdough toast with salted tomatoes, watercress and poached eggs. Check out their website here.

Kynd Community (brunch)

The iconic pink wall is painted with palm leaves and the menu is completely vegan with plenty of gluten-free options too. Order the pancake stacks served with coconut ice-cream and a hot pink drizzle or the stunning smoothie bowls, and expect to see flocks of tourists, bloggers and professional photographers! Be sure to pop into their very own ice-cream store next door too. Check out their website here.

Ubud

Alchemy

This raw vegan restaurant is famous for its ‘pick-n-mix’ salad and smoothie bars, where you can choose your bases and toppings from a wide selection. Their juices are served with bamboo straws and their peanut butter cups are to die for! Alchemy also offers raw vegan cooking classes. Check out their website here.

Moksa

Set among the breath-taking backdrop of vibrant green rice fields, Moksa uses seasonal ingredients, many of which are grown on site, to deliver a unique array of flavours. The international menu ranges from Asian dishes to vegan lasagne to sharing mezze boards. We struggled to decide on one desserts so ordered the mixed platter which featured an impressive selection including lemon pie, date chocolate cake and vanilla coconut ice-cream. This place was so good that we came back the next day for breakfast to try the pancake stack and tropical smoothie bowl! Check out their website here.

Other brunch favourites in Ubud included Mudra and Ubudian Café.

For dinner in Ubud check out Toro (sushi), Clear Café and Soma.

Be sure to grab a delicious vegan gelato at Kokolato, which offers totally unique flavours – I got a scoop of ginger, cardamom & rose, as well as cinnamon, almond & organic rice ice-cream, served in a gluten-free black rice cone.

The Yoga Barn and Radiantly Alive are both great yoga studios with delicious cafés on site.

 

Canggu

Peloton Supershop

This is where I tried the prettiest smoothie bowl of my life (big statement!), coloured with blue spirulina and topped with dragon fruit dolphins, papaya palm trees and edible flowers. Peloton Supershop is completely eco-friendly and donates their used oils for fuel for the Green school’s Bio bus! We came back a second time for dinner and had hearty plant-based burgers served in a charcoal bun with thick sweet potato fries! Check out their menu here.

The Avocado Factory

The Avocado Factory offers a tantalising selection of nourishing dishes, most of which feature avocado as the star of the show. The innovative menu includes avocado hummus open sandwiches, matcha pancakes, avo-chocolate mousse and poké bowls. Check out their menu here.

The service is fast and the WiFi is even faster! Try their sweet potato protein waffles, exotic fruity smoothie bowls or savoury tempeh veggie woks, accompanied by a long list of fresh juices.

Crate Café

Crate has a modern, minimalist vibe with wooden tables, pink coaches and views overlooking the rice fields. The menu caters for vegans, vegetarians and total carnivores, with something for everyone! Try their pretty chia pudding, layered dragon fruit smoothie and vegan banana bread! Check out their menu here.
