16 10 2013


This is a supplementary note to my previous note about Bali trip here. Well, your journey is not perfect until you complete it with a yummy-excellent culinary experience! So here it goes: a 3-day halal culinary journey in Bali on a budget 😉

Day 1

On your way to Ubud, stop by on Jalan Soka, Denpasar and taste the best Bali authentic rujak kuah pindang and es buah campur. The taste is unbelievably exotic and fresh with a very budget price, not more than IDR 10,000 😉

Wanna have a relaxing ambiance during lunch? Go to Bebek Tepi Sawah restaurant in Ubud, and try the most delicious crispy duck in Bali (in my opinion, hehehe) right next to the rice fields. Don’t forget to try the healthy juices and you’ll feel refreshed and healthy after eating a large amount of cholesterol. LOL 😀 Budget tip: the duck is served in a very large portion, which makes it enough for 2 people (Indonesian, women and children) 🙂

indian tea

In the afternoon, after going on a series of museum trip, take a short break in Warung Sharaswaty, Jalan Penestanan, Ubud. Turn left right after Antonio Blanco museum, drive up the hill, and the Warung is on your right. This place serves authentic Indian vegetarian cuisine. But what makes this warung different than the other Indian vegetarian restaurant is that the food uses natural herbs and spices without any synthetic additive or instant spices. The price is on budget as well, considering the healthy food we’re having. Take a sip of Indian tea for a short recharging drink, and be prepared for another adventure!



Once you have arrived in Kintamani area, go to Kintamani floating restaurant in Kedisan. It’s the only floating restaurant by the Kintamani Lake, so you won’t be having any difficulties in finding the place. It has some cottages as well. Feel the sensation of dining while floating on the lake with soft breeze around you and makes you forget that you are actually in Bali. With price about IDR 30,000/ person, this is a truly culinary experience that you can’t miss!



Day 2

Gelato yummy!

Feeling thirsty after playing on the beach in the morning? Hit Flapjaks, about 100m on the left of Kuta Beachwalk and try the best gelato in town. It’s quite pricy for a cup of ice cream, but for a gelato, it’s totally on a budget price.



For a quick-lunch-on a budget, stop by at Kedai Laba Laba on Jalan Uluwatu, Pecatu, about 50m from Jalan Pura-Uluwatu intersection. They serve halal Indonesian food with a very affordable price, about IDR 25,000/ person. Don’t forget to try fresh coconut ice on the rocks before continuing your journey to Padang Padang or Suluban Beach.

You haven’t gone to Bali until you dine in Jimbaran Beach café. Although the food prices is considered quite high, but the beach atmosphere makes it worth every cent. Budget tip: don’t hesitate to ask for the food price if they don’t provide it on the menu.



Day 3

bu andika

Dine in or simply grab the take-away menu at the famous Warung Nasi Pedas Bu Andika on Jalan Raya Kuta, on your way to the airport. All the food here is spicy and extraordinary delicious! With only IDR 20,000, you’ve had everything you need for your lunch dish before your flight home.
