Having a vacation to Bali is less than satisfying if you don’t hunt for Balinese food. However, most of the famous restaurants always offer a variety of pork culinary. Some readers of Balitheatre have asked us to provide recommendations for Halal food in Bali.
On this occasion, we will tell you 5 Halal foods in Bali that you must try when visiting Bali.
* Even though we’ve done some research, it’s a good idea to double-check about halal certificates and other things needed before visiting the places below!
This unique Balinese culinary is quite unique and still rarely heard by most tourists, Nasi Tekor. It is rice served in a kettle or pincuk, a traditional container made of banana leaves used since ancient times.
Located in Kertalangu Cultural Village, East Denpasar, you will also enjoy an atmosphere like eating in an old house complete with ornate knick-knacks that will bring you nostalgia to your childhood. Oh yeah, the ones selling here are the grandparents’ couples, it’s so sweet, right!
The menu sold here is actually simple: Balinese mixed rice with a dish of lawar biu batu, chicken serapah, Balinese chili sauce, fried peanuts, grilled chicken, and ares sauce.
Bu Mangku Kadewatan’s Chicken Rice
If you visit the Ubud area, you must try the most halal food there, namely Bu Mangku Kadewatan Chicken Rice. With the capital of a typical Balinese house pavilion, here you can also enjoy a traditional Balinese atmosphere with a large yard.
As the name implies, this place only serves food made from chicken. A portion of Chicken Rice will be completed with satay curls, eggs, sisit chicken, fried chicken, and lawar vegetables, as well as super spicy chili sauce! The price is cheap, only Rp. 25,000, – only
A pioneer for the Crispy Duck menu, aka Krispi Fried Duck, this restaurant is never empty of visitors. Yesterday, the Bali Vacation Team also tried Bebek Bengil at The Bay Nusa Dua recently. Indeed, the Crispy Duck has to be thumbs up!
With a similar Ubud atmosphere, Bebek Bengil in Nusa Dua also provides a beautiful atmosphere surrounded by trees and a Balinese gazebo. The difference is, here you will not find views of rice fields, but you will enjoy the typical white sand of Nusa Dua.
In addition to the superior Crispy Duck menu, Bebek Bengil also has delicious menus such as Nasi Campur and Bebek Sambal Ijo, which are no less delicious! Duh, this while writing while drooling ..
Ibu Oki’s Chicken Rice
Not far from Bebek Bengil, still in Nusa Dua, you can also find other halal culinary, namely Ibu Oki Chicken Rice. Almost the same as other Chicken Rice, Bu Oki also serves a portion of mixed rice with various chicken preparations such as fried chicken, sisit chicken, betutu chicken, twisted satay, eggs, and vegetables. The difference is, at Ibu Oki, you will get a spicy sauce that is guaranteed to make you sweat but want to keep increasing. The record here we added three plates!
Ibu Oki’s Chicken Rice also has a branch in Jimbaran. A plate of mixed rice costs Rp. 25,000 only.
Teba Café Jimbaran
The Jimbaran area is known for its rows of seafood restaurants that are ready to pamper your tongue. Actually, almost every restaurant here has a variety of grilled seafood menus, which are served complete with vegetable plecing and sambal matah. But usually, the Bali Vacation team often visits Teba Café Jimbaran than the others because we think the spices here are more kicking.
The most interesting thing about eating at Jimbaran beach is that you can enjoy a candlelight dinner “ala-ala” by the beach with acoustic music accompaniment. Perfect for those of you who want a romantic dinner with your beloved partner! If you plan to eat here, we recommend that you stand by from 5 pm, so you can get the best seats to watch the super beautiful sunset here.
