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.
