8 Must Try Balinese Foods

One of the best things of traveling is that you get to try many different foods and flavours, and Bali is one of those places that is so rich in this topic.

 

NASI GORENG

 This fried rice is Indonesia’s national dish. Heaps of flavours go into this dish with main ingredients like shallots, egg, tamarind, chilli, garlic and shrimp paste.
If you visit Bali you will find this dish everywhere. Seriously, it is in every restaurant menu and is very rare it goes wrong.

MIE GORENG

I could have this fried noodles dish anytime!. Mie goreng as well as the fired rice can be found in every balinese restaurant but it is also a very popular to be a dish on every hotel menu. If there is buffet breakfast, there is mie goreng.

BABI GULING

Think of slow roast pork…mmm, mmm, mmm…delish!
It is normally served with steamed rice and a mild chilli sauce on top.
There are restaurants which specialise in this dish only! and they are all over the island. A popular place to visit is Ibu Oka which has a few branches.

MERTABAK MANIS

This is the Balinese pancake. It is a thick sponge filled with yumminess. You can find them filled of chocolate, nutella, cheese and/or peanuts.

STREET CORN

As a Mexican I loooove corn, so this Bali food was a definitely must try for me. You’ll find food vendors walking along the streets. As you can imagine, it is super cheap
The corn is grilled and can have different topics, making it sweet, savoury or both at the same time 😉

CHICKEN SATAY

I am not big on chicken but the Balinese know how to add a good twist to it. The satay sauce they make for this dish is soon yummy. One of my favourites! #classic
The chicken is usually served in skewers covered on a creamy peanut sauce

BLACK RICE PUDDING

You either love it or you hate it. This dessert is made with black rice and it is far from the rice pudding you have tried before. It contains coconut milk and palm sugar, however, It is not too sweet and the consistency can be quite runny. It has a unique taste well worth trying.

FRUIT JUICES

I could live of Balinese fruit juices, they are so delicious! and it is guarantee that they are made freshly just before serving. I recommend you go for either pineapple, watermelon or dragon fruit…delicious!
