Food in Bali
Exploring when traveling is not only about the places, but also about the food. For those travelers who are curious or interested in the culinary experience when traveling, Bali has a wide option for you to choose from, local Indonesian food (Balinese, Padang, Javanese), Asian, Western or European. In Bali you will find a vast range of vegan and vegetarian food, deliciously prepared, like the traditional Gudeg dish, made from the locally grown jack fruit!
You can definitely enjoy more good and unique food experiences, such as traditional Indonesian Rijsttafel, known from the Colonial period of Indonesia. Rijsttafel can be found in european restaurants through out Europe, to where it has spread from the previous colonial power, the Netherlands. For around 400 SEK (about 40 euro), you can eat a buffé of Indonesian dishes served in the center of the table surrounding a large basket of steamed white rice.
