One of the most exciting things about visiting any country is tasting some of the delicious local food. The local food in Bali includes dishes such as Nasi Goreng (Fried Rice), Sate Chicken, Mie Goreng (Fried Noodles), Bakso (spicy soup with meatballs), Gado Gado (vegetables with peanut sauce), and Babi Guling (suckling pig). However this list doesn’t even scratch the surface and there are many more dishes for you to try.
Balinese dishes usually involve rice, some vegetables and a small amount of meat or fish. A word of warning, the local food in Bali is often spicy, with lots of chillies. Since most Balinese people are Hindu, they eat pork and suckling pig, but there are also many places serving Javanese food too.
You will see the locals pulling carts along the side of the road, serving things like corn and skewered sate chicken. There are also Warungs, which are casual Balinese restaurants with simple plastic chairs and tables. These usually serve a mixture of delicious foods such as banana pancakes and Nasi Goreng, as well as some international and western foods. You can also venture to the night markets after dusk for the ultimate local dining experience.
