Welcome to Bali
At some point in your holiday it could be good to go & experience some local Balinese food. You can eat at a Warung (small usually family owned restaurants) or a Kaki Lima (three wheeled mobile carts) Below you find a few of the most popular dishes available. Selamat Makan (Happy eating)
Nasi Goreng (fried rice) is the one of the most popular Indonesian foods meaning fried rice ,which is traditionally served with a fried egg. The dark brown color from the Kecap Manis (sweet soy sauce) distinguishes it from other popular Asian fried rice dishes. Nasi Goreng has been called the traditional dish of Indonesia.
Mie Ayam (Ayam is Indonesian for chicken ) is diced chicken in a dish of seasoned yellow wheat noodles (Bakmi). Often the dish is served with Bakso soup which can be eaten on it's own or together with the noodles.
Soto is the Indonesian word for soup. Soto Ayam is the popular chicken soup found at almost every local restaurant & Warung, as well as from street cart vendors.
The watery soup is flavored with garlic & chilli with chicken, shredded cabbage, tomatoes, boiled egg & noodles added. It can also be served with white rice
Bakso or meatball soup is one of the most affordable meals available in Bali. The clear soup contains noodles, shredded cabbage either beef ,fish or pork. Bakso is served at most local restaurants & also from mobile street carts.
You may have had chicken satay before, however it won't have tasted as good as Balinese chicken satay . The Balinese infuse the meat with lots of traditional Indonesian flavors including garlic, kaffir lime & Kecap manis, a type of soy sauce and peanut satay sauce.
