10 THINGS ALL AUSTRALIANS NEED TO TRY IN BALI
There is so much more to Bali than just sipping cocktails on the beach and shopping up a storm at the markets. Balinese cuisine is unique and delicious and something you need to try, even if it’s just once. So give the Western nuggets and chips a break and enjoy some of these traditional Balinese dishes and drinks.
Iga Babi Panggang
Baby Back Pork Ribs – Yummy!
This is a sample plate of Balinese food and the perfect introduction for those wanting to try a variety of foods at once. It has a lot of bite to it which is perfect for those who love spicy foods.
This traditional rice dish with vegetables is a much-loved option for my family. You can add seafood or chicken if you wish
Fresh Juice Smoothies
Many restaurants in Bali do not really have bottled juices. Instead they make them fresh with organic fruits and ice (Just ask if the ice is safe, which 99% of restaurants it will be).
That’s a whole cooked baby piglet, folks. You can have a portion of tasty pork and crackling as a meal, usually served with soup or rice.
Satays are amazing in Bali! They have fish, chicken, pork and beef. The satay sauce is very, very tasty! Some meats are minced and put on Bamboo skewers, others are whole meats put on skewers. Either way – they are a big win!
Mie Goreng is similar to Nasi Goreng, but noodle based and equally as tasty.
Cheap, safe to drink and you can find it (almost) anywhere.
New Radler Bintang Beer
This is a fresh twist on Bintang. It’s lemon flavoured and very easy to drink. Basically, it tastes like lemon squash but with alcohol.
A fresh, young coconut
Best served on the beach with a bikini on.
