Coconuts Bali Food & Drink

Bali has a thriving food and drink scene, and we are seriously eating it up. Literally. From sharing the latest food buzz, to dishing up handy food guides to publishing critical reviews of the newest and hottest establishments on the island, our food and drink section brings you the most essential food and drink content in the land. It seems like there’s a new cafe or bar or restaurant opening up in Bali on the daily and we are so there for it. We are obsessed with tasty Indonesian street food from nasi padang to terang bulan to true Balinese like lawar and babi guling. Warung hunters, we are. We are also so on top of the island’s every-growing international culinary scene. It seemed like just a few years back you could barely get a good bite of Mexican or Japanese food, but now you’ve got multiple highly-ranked options. Looking over in Ubud, we see a space for some serous gastronomic innovation, while Seminyak’s also got a number of truly exceptional chefs doing incredible things with food. And don’t even get us started about all the drink mixing going on. Moreover, let us assure you that we also cater to all interests and find our food coverage incredibly balanced—meaning we are up on vegan and health food trends but we can also tell you where on the island to get the best burger or bbq. A meat-free life isn’t for everyone in Bali. Ayo, selamat makan!
