Beautiful beaches, weather and an endless list of mouthwatering vegan restaurants are just a few reasons why we stan Bali.
The Indonesian island paradise of Bali is an easy front runner on many babes bucket lists. The popular tourist spot has everything from great weather, beach clubs, cliff-side villas to all the shopping and culture your heart desires. Not to mention the excellent food and incredibly friendly locals.
The vegan dining scene has exploded in Bali over the years, because not only is eating a plant-based diet better for the environment, it’s absolutely delicious. Whether you’re a dedicated vegan or just enjoy more leafy greens in your meals, we've picked some of the best vegan eats to put on the itinerary for your next Bali adventure.
If you’re ever craving a sweet and refreshing treat on those balmy Bali days then make Nalu Bowls your first stop. This delicious smoothie bowl shack is located in four different locations on the island so no matter where you’re staying, you can grab one on the go.
The colourful and fruity bowls are made from fresh local ingredients and their homemade granola is baked fresh everyday. Inspired by surfing, each bowl is named after a favourite wave from around the world. Try the ‘Uluwatu’ bowl and sit on the beach watching the waves for a perfect start to your day.
La Pacha Mama
La Pacha Mama is Bali’s first all-natural plant-based Mexican restaurant. Located in the cultural streets of Ubud, you’ll be treated to live music in the beer garden while enjoying a bowl of Mexigoreng - clever! Highlights on the menu include cauliflower wings, jackfruit burritos and a long list of delicious cocktails. Forget Motel Mexicola, La Pacha Mama is one to try. Salud!
The Shady Shack, Canguu
This hidden Echo Beach gem is the perfect spot to escape and have a moment of peace with an almond latte in hand. The Shady Shack is located in the rice fields of Canguu with interiors full of greenery and a major chilled out Bali vibe.
While all the food is delicious, we highly recommend the Cauli Rice Bowl and Shack Attack Burger. This quirky cafe is also located just a short distance from street lifestyle brand, Atilla & Co. Apart from stocking a really cool range of clothing, Atilla & Co. are also the only Bali stockist of the BB range if you need to stock up on your fav Bali Body Tanning Oils while you’re there.
Earth Cafe & Market
If your vacay is longer than a few weeks and you’re wanting to have a night in, not only will Earth Cafe feed you a plant-based lunch but this organic cafe has a market attached for all your vegan needs. Top picks on the menu include raw buddha burgers and even salted-caramel slices. The best part? They are located in Seminyak as well as Ubud and they even offer a food delivery service. Vegan chocolate crepes to your villa? Yes, please.
Green Ginger Noodle House
This Canguu ‘noodle house’ isn't officially vegan, but 100% vegetarian with a handful of incredible vegan meals on the menu. Think vegan asian inspired dishes like noodles, soup and currys. It is the perfect spot for a breakfast, lunch or dinner date with an extensive range of vegan ice-creams, juices and smoothies. Enjoy a mouth-watering veggie laska before doing some late night shopping at the markets.
If you need a way to convince your not-so-vegan boyfie to go green for a meal, look no further than Peloton Supershop in Badung. This western-style cafe serves up plant-based favourites while also doubling as a bike shop. Their motto is to bring fun and ease into living a more conscious lifestyle. If you can't choose between their burgers, jackfruit taco and pancakes, why not order them all?
