As the experts here at The Bali Bible, we’ve got a few faves that are worth checking out while you’re there. We’re all obsessing over brunches and long lunches at the moment and there’s nothing better than sitting in the sunshine with a bloody mary or three getting your vacay vibes on.
To keep it short and sweet we thought we’d share why Seminyak is nailing the foodie scene because let's be real, that’s probably where you’re staying…. And if you’re not, these are the Seminyak villas you’ll want to check out.
WITH SOME SERIOUSLY INSTAGRAMMABLE DECOR
Vegetarian, organic, gluten-free or vegan? We’ve got you covered. If you’re looking for healthy eats that are perfect for a Snapchat story, head straight to Clean Canteen, Kynd, Sisterfields or Sea Circus. These brightly coloured cafes are a hipsters paradise. Think pressed juices, raw treats and acai bowls for days.
Here's a pro tip: if you’re feeling the hangover blues, Sea Circus offers ‘Hangover Happy Meals’ - for approx $5 you can add a coffee of your choice, OJ, berocca shot and panadol to your meal. The perfect combo to cure a night out on the town.
FANCY-FREE FINE DINING
We love that Seminyak has world-class restaurants that don’t break the bank. Whether you’re after traditional Indonesian cuisine or looking for pasta (yes, you’ll find incredible Italian restaurants in Bali) everything you could possibly want can be found in Seminyak.
If you haven’t been to Da Maria, add this to your list. Head there for lunch and sip aperol spritz into the afternoon. This glamorous Italian eatery has some of the best pizzas in Bali. Plus with the deal that we’ve got running at the moment, you’ll get $50 worth of value for just $30.
La Lucciola is still a cult classic and continues to serve amazing food year after year. With beach views, a great cocktail list and delicious modern Italian food (get the gnocchi) we just can’t go past it. Most people go there for dinner but lunch is just as good.
COFFEE THAT GIVES MELBOURNE
A RUN FOR ITS MONEY
A question that we get a lot of is ‘does Bali have good coffee?’ and the answer without a doubt is yes.yes.yes. It used to be that you could only grab a good latte in Seminyak at Revolver Espresso. Now there are places like Expat. Roasters and Pison Coffee leading the way.
If you’re in need of a caffeine fix whether it be a latte or an espresso martini (our fave) you’ll find them in this list we’ve put together.
