Cheap food in Bali guide

There are two types of travellers—those who are bent on spending as much as they possibly can, and those who want to be frugal with their money. If you’re the latter, and are planning a vacation to Bali, then this is the list for you. We’ll introduce you to 10 cheap Bali food places for when you’re on a budget.


1. Warung Makan Bu Rus


Warung Makan Bu Rus is considered one of the best nasi campur eateries in Ubud, and yet its prices are super affordable. It’s set amid a lush garden, with seating options both indoors and outdoors. As you take in the wonderful ambience, feast on the Nasi Campur Ayam (IDR35K/~S$3.16), which includes a generous serving of local vegetables, egg, spicy tempeh, peanuts, a minced chicken skewer, and curry chicken, all accompanied by white rice. Be sure to get a serving of Chicken Satay (IDR35K/~S$3.15) while you’re at it!

2. Warung Biah Biah


The homely eats at Warung Biah Biah are both delicious and value-for-money. Go for the Nasi Goreng Babi Kecap (IDR33K/~S$2.98), a fried rice dish served on top of a banana leaf and crowned with stir-fried pork bits marinated in sweet soy sauce, along with chilli, spring onions, and a fried egg. It comes with a side of Indonesian salad and crispy keropok, too. Another great pick here is the Ayam Sambal Matah (IDR8K/~S$0.72), which is stir-fried chicken mixed with onions and chilli.

3. Daily Baguette


The above picture may bring to mind expensive cafe fare, but in truth, it is anything but. Daily Baguette’s French-inspired bakes are super affordable, and you can enjoy them in a spacious outdoor terrace with a view of the Puri Lukisan Museum of Balinese Arts. Some bakes we recommend include the Banana Cake (IDR 10K/~$0.90), Mini Pain Au Chocolat (IDR12K/~S$1.08), and Creme Brulee (IDR25K/~S$2.26), consisting of a thin crust that envelops a centre made of caramelised egg, delicately sprinkled with powdered sugar.

4. In Da Compound Warung


At In Da Compound Warung, animals such as cats, birds, and even free-roaming rabbits are a common sight. Perhaps more pertinent is the common sight of cheap food items at this restaurant. The Soto Ayam, a generous bowl of bee hoon soaked in a flavourful clear broth and topped with shredded chicken, will set you back a mere IDR28K (~S$2.53). For something less hearty, you can try the Dadar Gulung (IDR20K/~S$1.80), a traditional pancake dessert filled with grated coconut and brown sugar.

Address: Jalan Gootama Nombor 6, Ubud, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571

5. Sawobali


Buffets this cheap don’t grow on trees—at just IDR50K (~S$4.51) per person, you can have all the food you want at Sawobali’s plant-based buffet. With over 10 different local dishes to choose from, including glass noodles, eggplant, potatoes, tempeh, tofu and more, this is perfect for those who prefer their buffets simple, homely, and plenty hearty. You’ll have to pay for the meal in advance, though, and do note that there’s a one-hour dining time limit.

6. Made’s Warung


Fans of Made’s Warung hail it as one of the best restaurants in Bali for Gado-Gado (IDR40K++/~S$3.65++). It’s a striking combination of sweet, spicy, and savoury flavours, and is drenched in a creamy sauce made using ground peanuts, spices, herbs, sweet soya sauce, and coconut milk. But that’s not all the restaurant’s known for—the Nasi Goreng Special (IDR75K++/~S$6.84++), with its fragrant fried rice and tender pork satay, has plenty of admirers. You get to enjoy all of that in a spacious alfresco area that comes alive at night with cultural dances.

7. Warung Leka-Leka


There are two great things about Warung Leka-Leka: one, it’s a hidden gem that isn’t absolutely swarmed with tourists, and two, its food offerings are affordable and delectable. Take the Ayam Betutu (IDR45K/~S$4.10), for instance, comprising a quarter chicken spiced with bumbu betutu and served with rice. The combination of aromatic spices and succulent chicken makes this a hit with the restaurant’s regulars. Another affordable option is the Beef Rendang (IDR45K/~S$4.10), which has tender beef elevated by fragrant rempah.

8. Pisang Goreng Gendut


Cheap, yummy, and oh-so-decadent banana fritters—that’s what you’re getting at Pisang Goreng Gendut. Fans rave about the Pisang Goreng Original (IDR18K/~S$1.63), which consists of deep-fried dough balls filled with mashed overripe bananas. Although they are naturally sweet, those craving extra sweetness can opt for syrup toppings such as Tiramisu (IDR20K/~S$1.81) or Cappuccino (IDR20K/~S$1.81). There’s also the Pisang Penyet Double Glaze (IDR20K/~S$1.82), which is a “smashed banana” dish covered in a sweet chocolate syrup.

Address: Jalan Dewi Sri Nombor 9, Legian, Kecamatan Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361
Opening hours: Mon-Thurs 11am to 11pm, Fri-Sun 11am to 12am

9. Warung Sika


Known for its affordable nasi campur, Warung Sika has its colourful dishes placed in a display window, so that you can customise your filling meal to your liking. To give you an idea of how cheap the food here is, a plate of yellow rice, tempeh, and mixed vegetables only costs IDR33K (~S$2.96), while a serving of red rice with vegetables, one fried chicken, and one ayam bakar will set you back just IDR47K (~S$4.22). A must-have dish is the tender charcoal-grilled chicken, which is caramelised with Indonesian sweet soy sauce.

10. Mie And More


Mie And More is one of the pricier places on this list, with most of its noodle dishes hovering around the S$5 mark. Still, it won’t exactly break the bank, and you’ll get some excellent Sichuan noodles that will sate your hunger in no time. The Pork Sichuan Noodles (IDR60K/~S$5.38) is a must-have for any fan of spicy noodles—it features al dente egg noodles with a house-made special sauce, topped with minced pork and bok choy. For a very unique dish, try the Beef Cheese Hazelnut Noodles (IDR60K/~S$5.38), which sees the same egg noodles mixed with chilli, minced beef, hazelnut sauce, and shredded cheese.
