'Mie' means 'noodles'. The dish is largely similar to the Nasi Goreng, it just replaces rice with noodles. If you prefer noodles over rice, you won't have to miss out on the flavours of the Nasi Goreng, just pick this instead.
You don't get sates like this outside Bali *weepy face emoji*. I LOVE those tender chicken pieces that are grilled till they're almost falling off the stick, but what I love EVEN MORE is the peanut sauce that they serve with it. It is DELICIOUS. It is so good that I was spooning it right out of a bowl and straight into my mouth. Nom.
Sate is one of the most popular street foods in Bali. Chicken and seafood to be the more commonly found, but you will find mock meat sate at certain places as well.
The Balinese vegetarian salad stole my heart. Boiled vegetables served with mock-meat sate, peanut sauce, and fried tofu doesn't exactly sound appetising, but take my word for it, it's quite a treat for the taste buds. I had this a bunch of times when I was there and wanted to stick to a vegetarian diet. I was quite happy.
I know the title of the post says 'What to Eat in Bali', and coffee doesn't technically fall in that category, but Indonesian coffee is the SHIZZ. The country is known world-over for its coffee, and when you're here, don't forget to try the Luwak coffee.
Luwak coffee is basically prepared by using beans that have been digested by a luwak (or civet), and then freshly ground. The luwaks are fed raw beans, which they digest and expel. The same beans are dried and roasted before being ground into the most expensive coffee powder in Bali. The idea is a little hard to digest (pun unintended), but go on, give it a try! If you like it, you could take some back home.
Or you could be like me and try the Pink Latte at Kynd Community, which was made using beetroot (it came with sprinkles omg!). I LOVED IT!
It isn't even funny, the number of options you will find for smoothies in Bali! Fruit based ones, yogurt based ones, vegan ones, combinations, green smoothies, you name it. You'll be spoilt for choice. Sticking to your diet has never been easier.
There's nothing healthier, tastier, or prettier than a colourful smoothie served with fresh fruit toppings, and served in an actual coconut shell. You could even your own name spelled out in the bowl using fruits.
Sounds incredible right? Being healthy was NEVER this tasty! Choose a base (I prefer dragonfruit), choose your toppings (all sorts of fresh fruits, coconut shavings, cacao nibs, flax seeds, granola... Nom!), and drown yourself in the all sorts of goodness!
