Bali really is an absolute paradise for foodies, especially for vegans. Here are my recommendations for the best food spots in Bali. If you are looking for even more food spots, you can also have a look at my Canggu Guide.
THE BEST FOOD SPOTS IN ULUWATU
Single Fin – the most beautiful view
Here you will find an amazing breakfast, a delicious lunch menu, an incredible view and cool parties in the evenings. I really liked the music the DJ played. Even when sober, it’s a good place to party.
Cashew Tree – very tasty, fresh food and great ambiance
Here I wandered through the menu – á la Annelina. Speak kombucha, summer rolls, various bowls, ice cream, and cake. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the exact names of the dishes but I know for sure that everything was very delicious. As it was dark, I didn’t take any pictures.
Mana Bar – best quinoa bowl with extra tempeh
The first 11 days of my time in Bali I stayed at the surf villas of my friends. We have been eating at Mana almost every day. Their menu has not many vegan options, however, these vegan ones are extremely good. I always went for the Quinoa Bowl with extra tempeh and extra fresh chili :). I ordered the dressing separately because the tempeh and guacamole themselves are served with so much marinade and dressing so that, otherwise, I would have found it too salty and oily. This bowl is awesome.
More cafés in Uluwatu:
- Bukit Cafe
- yoga searcher
- Temple Lodge
THE BEST FOOD SPOTS IN UBUD
In Ubud, just like in Canggu, there is an incredibly great selection of vegan and healthy restaurants, cafés and bars. You can also find vegan warungs with “All you can eat buffet” here.
Zest – 100% vegan and an incredible ambiance
The restaurant is located in an extremely beautiful location and belongs rather to the more noble restaurants. It is relatively expensive for Bali. But it is definitively worth the experience.
Alchemy – 100% raw vegan
Here you can get super tasty and a little extravagant food such as summer rolls in papaya paper (dried papaya meat), raw food pizza, cauliflower sushi, and delicious DIY salad bowls. Of course, I could be found there, repeatedly. I can also highly recommend the water kefir and cakes. As everything is raw vegan, here you have to dig a little deeper into your pockets, but nothing compared to German prices.
Sawobali (Warung) – Vegan Buffet
All you can eat-vegan-buffet – omg, that was soooooo good and incredibly cheap. I had to ask several times because I couldn’t believe that everything was vegan, even the desserts.
Mother – Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free
Here I had a salad with fresh Moringa leaves, for the first time. Tastes a bit like a weed, but I would still order it again. And my bowl was the absolute hammer.
Açaí Queen – super delicious Açaí Bowls
Açaí is not from Bali, but I still allowed myself a few bowls. I had my best one at açaí Queen. When I can’t decide what to take, I ask for the bestseller or favorite of the waiter. Here, that was a taro iced tea. I ordered this one without sugar and would not do it again :). The bubbles are made of tapioca stars, but it was way too sweet for me, even though I ordered it “without sugar”.
Sayuri Healing Food – sustainable vegan Café
Here you can have some truly crazy things: raw foods, adaptogens and a lot of special drinks. In my eyes, a must for every foodie and everyone who thinks he knows it all. Here you can discover something new, for sure 🙂
Seeds of Life – most fancy, vegan raw food
Seeds of Life is even more creative, foodwise. Have you ever heard of Cistanches, He Sho Wu or Eucomia? Everything here is raw-vegan and optimized for nutritional value.
- Clear Café (super kombucha)
- Yellow Flower Café (delicious buffet)
- La Pacha Mama (Jackfruit looove)
- Abe-Do Organic Warung
Mother Restaurant Ubud – on the right you see the Moringa Salad
THE BEST FOOD SPOTS IN SEMINYAK
As I haven’t been to Seminyak very often, my restaurant visits here were accordingly rare. But I was enthusiastic about Zula and Clean Canteen. The Earth Café was also very tasty:
- Zula: 100% vegan
- Earth Café: 100% organic and plant-based
- Kynd Community: 100% vegan, 100% bowl-love
