Bali Food Guide – where foodies fall in love

Beautiful Bali- the earthly paradise which attracts thousands of visitors each year naturally has accommodation to suit diverse purses. There is a wide range of up – market hotels, villas and residencies to satisfy even the most discerning of customers. To those seeking holistic luxury wellness in idyllic surroundings COMO Shambhala Estate Bali would be an ideal choice.

In Bali, food is not only exotic and flavoursome it is nutritious and healthy. Healthy cuisine Bali is no mere catch word, it is truly so. Organic farming prevails in Bali so the bulk of the vegetables and fruit are organically grown and vegetables are frequently used in Balinese cuisine. Balinese cuisine is one of the most complex cuisines in the world and uses a great number of spices. Rice is a staple and it is accompanied by dishes of vegetables, meat, pork, chicken or fruit. Balinese are predominantly Hindu and therefore beef is rarely consumed.

Though there is much frying and deep frying of meat and fish etc., they are also grilled and this is a much more healthy way of eating. If the word “barker” is displayed outside eateries then grilled food would be available.

Among the great number of spices used in Balinese food are ginger, garlic, shallots and turmeric all of which are very conducive to good health.

Gado gado is a salad of slightly boiled, steamed or blanched fresh vegetables mixed with fried tofu, boiled egg, tempeh and longton. This is Indonesian in origin but very popular in Bali. Babi guling (celeng guling), a spit roasted duck stuffed with chilli, turmeric, garlic and ginger is a hot favourite in Bali. Other Balinese delicacies include nasi campur Bali (nasi Bali) , a mixed rice with accompaniments like grilled tuna, fried tofu, cucumber, spinach, tempe beef cubes, vegetable curry, corn and chilli sauce. Nasi campur Bali is often served by street vendors wrapped in a banana leaf. Betutu is a roasted poultry dish (chicken or duck) with spices.

Kopi Balinese is Balinese coffee and Brem is a Balinese rice wine.

Bali has many health food and vegetarian outlets. Night markets, warungs (food stands) and fruit vendors are good sources for local delicacies. Places like Falafel House , Banana Leaf Vegan Thai Fusion in Bali serve vegetarian while other like Clean Café and Clear express in Ubud serves raw and organic food and healthy desserts while the Betelnut in Canugga serves great juices like the ‘Green Goddess’. Many places like the Betelnut dot Bali.
