2. Enjoy a traditional bowl of Bakso or go crazy with unique variants at Bakso Boedjangan Bali

Let’s face it, no trip to Indonesia would be complete without enjoying a bowl of Bakso, a popular street food which can be found relatively anywhere in the country. Although you’re bound to find many food spots in Bali offering the dish, none is arguably as popular as Bakso Boedjangan Bali.

What to expect:

  • A trendy and popular hangout spot for youngsters.
  • It’s well known for its creative meatball variants such as their signature Bakso Super Mozarella, a must-have for cheese lovers.
  • If you like your food spicy, opt for their super spicy version by adding Taichan sambal to your Bakso. There are 9 levels for you to choose from so go nuts!
  • They have an extensive dessert menu too! Many have chimed in about the unique avocado, coconut, and durian dessert, namely Es Alpukat Durian Kelapa.

Another popular Balinese dish is none other than Ayam Betutu, a highly seasoned spicy dish served with rice, vegetables, peanuts, and sambal. If you’re visiting the area of Bedugul, be sure to check out Warung Nyoman along Jalan Raya Bedugul to try it out for yourself.

What to expect:

  • Betutu is a Balinese word meaning a mixture of spices that are used to marinate the chicken.
  • Aside from chicken, duck is also commonly used to make the dish.
  • There are regional differences in preparing the dish. For instance, in Klungkung the chicken is stuffed with betutu spices; while in Gianyar, the dish is usually prepared in a plantain leaf wrap. So, try them all while you’re there!
