Guys, I’m back!
Just landed in Australia (currently waiting for our flight to Canberra) and am SO tired…
BUT, I wanted to get straight into sharing my trip to Bali with you all!
Bali was absolutely breathtaking in many ways, and I have SO MUCH to share about what we got up to, and my thoughts on what we did and what we saw.
I will chat more about this in an in-depth blog post later this week, but for now I thought I would share with you the top places to eat in Bali. I am not normally a foodie, but this past week I became obsessed with trying out all the incredible cafe’s and restaurants that Seminyak has to offer, and I couldn’t not share with you my favourite places.
Overall, we ate really well in Bali, with super nutritious and delicious meals that made our tummies happy, and skin glow.
Take a look at some of my favourite places we visited.
This was one of the first places on our list – and came highly recommended by a few people too!
With it’s crisp, cool interiors, delicious coffee and Instagram worthy food; Sisterfields is a little taste Australia right in the heart of Seminyak. We loved this place so much, that we ate there three times during our trip – twice for breakfast and once for lunch.
I highly recommend their Acai bowls, smashed avocado and chicken taco’s!
Sea Circus was another place that came highly recommended and is definitely one of those places where you’ll want to go back to try everything on the menu.
We had both breakfast and lunch here (both before and after massages at Bodyworks which is around the corner), and absolutely adored the fresh and wholesome food.
This is a restaurant, cocktail bar and coffee den, and an all round awesome place! Again, their Acai bowls are to die for – as is the kombucha!
This was another strong favourite of ours, and Australian owned as well!
Grain offers a fresh Bistro style menu, with a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. We ventured here a couple of times for a mid morning snack and fresh juice, and loved sitting in their outdoor area, watching the traffic on the street go by, and the scooters roll in and out.
Their fruit platter is an absolute must have – so fresh!
If you want to have a whole lot of fun, then Motel Mexicola is the place for you. This place screeeeaaaams fun, and is FILLED with Aussies too!
We ventured here for dinner on our second night in Bali, and absolutely loved the atmosphere, music and food. At around 9pm, expect to see everyone singing and dancing on tables – definitely a fun filled atmosphere.
The food here was probably the best I had in Bali – fresh Mexican with a twist!
This place has been on my must visit list for ages, with their delicious looking Instagram feed convincing me that we HAD to eat here.
Inspired by Hawaii and the culture that revolves around surfing and tropical ingredients, Nalu Bowls is the perfect pre and post surf meal with each bowl named after their favorite waves from around the world!
Nalu Bowls is a great little hole-in-the-wall cafe that offers healthy and fresh smoothie bowls. Trust me, you’ll spend ages deciding on the best bowl to try as there are so many great options!
KU DE TA
If there is one thing you MUST do when you’re in Bali, it’s head to Ku De Ta for sunset drinks.
Mum and I went here to watch the sunset and eat dinner on our final night in Bali, and it was seriously the best way to end the trip.
The sunset was glorious, as was the people watching. The cocktails were delicious too!
Corner House, located on one of the main streets in Seminyak, reminded me a lot of a few cafe’s back home in Canberra. It’s interior was very French inspired, and their food (especially their breakfast) was top of the range!
We ate here for breakfast on our final morning in Bali, and we loved sitting and enjoying the tropical breeze waft through the cafe.
A great spot for brunch or dinner!
BO & BUN
Bo & Bun, an Asian eatery heavily based on Vietnamese cooking with romantic French bistro dining décor, was definitely up there with being one of our favoured locations for lunch and dinner.
I can easily see why Bo & Bun has been so successful in Bali, with it’s exotic flavours and fresh local grown produce and quality ingredients.
We particularly enjoyed their Pad Thai and Vietnamese Pork Rolls!
These were just a few of the places we ate and drank at during our time in Bali.
I can’t wait to share a more in depth wrap up of my trip, so keep an eye out later this week!
Now, I’m off to get some much needed sleep…
A big thank you to Michelle Williams, who helped Mum and I put our Bali itinerary together. Without her help, we wouldn’t have known about all of these amazing places!
