Best vegan and vegetarian food in Bali

If you’re a plant-based traveller, Bali is one of the best places you can visit as the island offers a plethora of vegan and vegetarian food options. Whether you’re a committed vegan or you’re simply looking to explore plant-based options, the food scene here has something for everyone. From creative meatless dishes to innovative twists on classic favourites, these best vegan and vegetarian food places in Bali are sure to keep you satiated.

1. Kynd


Kynd is not just another pretty cafe––it’s one of the best vegetarian eateries in Seminyak to enjoy Western fusion food, based on my humble opinion. A must-try is the Creamy Tan Tan Ramen (IDR90K++/~S$8.21++), consisting of ramen noodles, bok choy, wakame, bean sprouts, enoki, and mock minced pork. What makes this dish so special is their heady broth, which is creamy with a tinge of spiciness.


Another popular dish is the Smoked Bacon Gnocchi (IDR95K++/~S$8.66++), starring lightly charred gnocchi served with potato chunks, pumpkin, mushrooms, and mock bacon.

For drinks, try their refreshing smoothies from IDR65K++ (~S$5.93++) such as Tropical Sunrise or Work It: banana, peanut butter, cacao nibs, and coconut milk. There’s also a selection of coffee and tea from only IDR32K++ (~S$2.90++).

Look out for their best-seller, the Vegan Cinnamon Rolls (IDR35K++/~S$3.16++). This addictive treat comes in two flavours: Original and Caramel Walnut, with the former being a more suitable pick for those who aren’t into sugary foods.

Don’t miss out on the Meatless Tacos (IDR65K++/~S$5.87++) too, which stars mushrooms, shredded lettuce, and soy-based meat sandwiched between a flour tortilla, drizzled with salsa and chipotle mayo.

If you’ve never heard of Jackfruit Tacos (IDR70K++/~S$6.32++), you can try it at Moksa. This specialty dish sees raw corn taco shells filled with Mexican young jackfruit, tomato salsa, avocado, and coconut sour cream. Fun fact: most of the ingredients here are grown in-house in their very own permaculture garden!

Their raw foods are also worth a try, including the Raw Pumpkin Pancake Rolls (IDR85K++/~S$7.87++), filled with sun-dried tomato pesto, avocados, and caramelised onions, finished with a drizzle of tamari sauce for a hint of umami.

Explore their selection of all-day breakfast items, consisting of acai bowls, waffles, and big breakfasts. You won’t be disappointed with their Fluffy Waffle (IDR75K++/~S$6.77++), featuring gluten-free waffles topped with berries and coconut blossom nectar, or the Champion Breakfast Plate (IDR89K++/~S$8.03++): vegetable hotcakes, jackfruit sausages, spinach, mushrooms, a sunny-side up, avocado, and hummus.

The mains here are also relatively affordable—think fruit-centric items with a twist. The Jackfruit Wrap (IDR79K++/~S$7.13++) is tastier than it sounds. It comprises assorted fresh vegetables encased in a raw papaya wrap, served with a savoury hoisin dip. End the meal with their vegan Banoffee (IDR55K++/~S$4.97++) pie or Snickers Pie (IDR55K++/~S$4.97++), a sinful dessert with chocolate ganache, nougat, and peanuts.

We’ve heard good things about their Shakshouka (IDR75K++/~S$6.76++), a spiced vegetable dish with poached eggs in tomato sauce. It’s also served with regular pita bread or whole wheat bread.
