Best 7 Vegan Restaurants in Bali

By Putri, 04.12.2023

The vegan diet has gathered a lot of adherents lately – particularly on the island of Bali. Many Balinese people practice a form of Hinduism that prohibits them from eating meat, meaning that you can already get in touch with a strong vegetarian, pescetarian and vegan culture. It’s unsurprising, then, that many people avoid all animal products in general, with an increasing number of restaurants opting for vegan menus. Plants and fruits can be cooked deliciously, too!

If you’re looking to sample some delectable vegan Indonesian cuisine, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for a selection of some of the best restaurants in Indonesia for those seeking some nutritional goodness from Mother Nature. The seven places presented below really do offer vegan food at a new level of quality, going beyond mere cooking to present a sort of culinary alchemy to their clientele.

Kynd Community

Kynd Community is leading the way when it comes to Bali’s best vegan eateries. With cafes in both Seminyak and Canggu, Kynd Community serves an excellent menu of plant-based dishes, offering everything from light bites like smoothie bowls and seasonal fruit dishes to more substantial burgers and wraps. Both establishments are bright and colourful, set within beautiful scenery, and promise excellent service to all.

Tasty breakfast, lunch, and dinner options are available at both venues. Still, Kynd Community’s Seminyak location offers something extra: a pizzeria and vegan ice cream shop! You may be vegan, but that doesn’t mean you have to go without delicious treats like pizzas and desserts. It’s not all grains, beans, and tofu when you make the decision to follow this lifestyle.

While visiting Kynd Community, make sure to visit their store, where they sell clothes, cookbooks, and more, made in a meaningful and socially conscious way. It’s this philosophy that lies at the heart of this fantastic company.

Alchemy Bali

Alchemy Bali has two locations, Ubud and Uluwatu, and will soon open one up in Canggu. They’ve been awarded the world’s best restaurants for vegans by The Reader’s Pick, the Travellers’ Top Choice of 2023 by Tripadvisor, and the world’s best raw food restaurants by the American Express Essentials. And for good reason! They bring a whole new twist to the concept of farm-to-table. Most of the food you eat at their restaurants comes from local little farms. What’s more, you can sit next to a herbal terrace garden and enjoy your extremely nutritious organic meal.

At Alchemy Bali, most dishes are cooked at 43 degrees Celsius; thus, nutrients, which are lost if cooked at high temperatures, are kept intact. But don’t think all they have are veggies, salads, soups, juices and smoothies! The spot also offers delicious ramen bowls, pizza, vegan cheese and vegan chocolate in the mix on their menu. They genuinely believe that good food will transform your body into a healthier state. Alchemy Bali’s vegan food is not only healthy but also tasty!

Expert Opinion

Having lived on the island for ten years now, I have been exploring most of the culinary types here in Bali. I am not vegan, but when vegan food was booming in Bali, it triggered my curiosity to at least try the dishes, as they said they were tasty and healthy!

So, with that said, here are my three best selections of the best vegan restaurants in Bali:

Kynd Community Canggu, The Shady Shack, Zali

All three eateries boast a varied menu and high-quality meals, bursting with flavour thanks to the delicious sauces and spices used by the experienced chefs behind the scenes. Additionally, their cleanliness and customer service are second to none.

We all know that Bali is popular for its broad cuisine. Well, for what it’s worth, I’d say that vegan food is certainly worth trying during your time here on the island! Hopefully, the information in this article can help you find the perfect restaurant for you, one that you’ll love and visit time and time again.

Bon appetite!
