Food is a big part of traveling for us. Just because we are on a budget, it doesn’t mean we eat crap just because its cheap, we seek out good quality food at affordable prices. this part of our budget is something don’t take lightly. At the point of saving up we make sure, that we set a realist food budget that allows for us to eat well and stay healthy, as we would at home. But, of course most places in the world are not as expensive as London, which means our daily food budget is usually pretty low in comparison. Our Bali Budget was 200K ( £10 for both of us ) per dinner and 150K ( £7.20 for both of us) for lunch. This is actually quite a bit more (almost double) than Thailand and Malaysia but the food variety, and restaurants types are of a different standard.
1. Le monde – Jl Padma Utara no 2B, Legian
Average per main+ plus drink 100k idr ( £4.50)
Great menu with both Balinese and western options, both of which are mouth-watering. LeMonde produces really good quality food, they have a great open kitchen, chef’s and very attentive and friendly staff. The food portions are pretty big so we would usually skipped the starter, and got a main and a drink ( or three;) ) .
*Must try -The Mahi Mahi*
2. MoMo’s Steak House & Sports Bar-Jalan Melasti No.69X, Legian,
Avg price for :
250K ( £12) for steak dish+drimk
we loved this place.Together with the afore-mentioned we came here ALOT. This place caters for mainly Aussie’s but the atmosphere is pretty chilled and the staff are great. The Menu offers of course steaks as well other american type dishes and they can really pull it off. they also offer a small but good selection of Balinese options too.Great food great portions, great atmosphere day or night.
* Must try – the Beef Rendang , Nasi Campur, chicken wings and the Calamarai are highly recommended.
3 . Warung Yogya- Jl Padma Utara no 79, Legian
Avg price for :main+ plus drink 40K ( £2)
there is a reason why you always have to wait for a table here because its one of the very few ( clean) places that sells authentic Balinease food at normal south-east asia prices.This Place is by far the best, of its kind, value for money , clean and quality eatery that we could find in the Legian/Seminyak/Kuta area. it may be cheap but the food is good. average meal and drink per person 40K.
Must try all 🙂
4. La Plancha – Jalan Mesari Beach, Seminyak, Kuta.
Avg price per main+ plus drink 150K IDR ( £7.50)
this well-known, finger licking Spanish seafood beach bar is an all time favorite of ours. We first visited here 3 years ago.Albeit one of the more expensive places to dine on the beach front, it is most defiantly worth it. Even if your on a tight budget i would recommend having at least one meal here.
Must try – the Sea food platter ( yum yum yum) 120IDR cane be shared between two people if you order a few sides. ( which is what we did a we were on a tight budget)
5.Bon chon chicken Beachwalk shopping mall –
This is the best fried chicken I have ever had! forget KFC and Try this KFC a..k.a Korean fried chicken, This fast food joint began as our go to pre or post Cinema meal, and quickly became one of our go to lunch spots. A meal will only set you back 25k – 50k IDR ( £1.20-2.40)
