Best halal food in Bali
While you can rely on halal food being relatively easy to find in Indonesia, Bali remains an exception due to its different religious mores from the majority of the archipelago. It can be a bit tricky to source halal food in Bali because of this, but if you’re Muslim, or travelling with Muslim loved ones, our guide is here to help.
Here are some of the best halal eateries in Bali to dine at. While not all of them may be halal-certified, they do use halal produce.
