In recent years, Bali has blossomed into a real plant-based paradise! From hearty vegan burgers to haute veggie cuisine, there is something to appease all palates. So let’s get right down to it – here are the 10 best vegan and plant-based restaurants in Bali!
Kasto puts a delicious vegan spin on Italian food! Though the funky décor is definitely part of the charm, it is the food that has made Kasto so popular. From yummy pizzas to delectable ravioli and from gourmet salads to awesome desserts, every dish is more delicious than the last! Many patrons describe Kasto as the best vegan food they have ever had, with the restaurant’s vegan cheese and tofu ravioli regularly garnering rave reviews. This Batubelig hotspot is definitely one to watch!
I am Vegan Babe
I am Vegan Babe is a trendy eatery located in the fashionable Canggu neighbourhood. True to its name, the venue boasts a 100% plant-based menu. The restaurant’s light and airy décor offers the perfect backdrop for their colourful vegan dishes. From plant-based Benedict to fluffy vegan pancakes, the breakfast spread is to die for and the same goes for their lunch menu. We love their bowls and salads! Their vegan specialty coffees and desserts deserve a special mention too.
A meal at Tanaman is an experience for all the senses! Located at Potato Head, Bali’s OG beach club, Tanaman is a futuristic, plant-based restaurant where chef Dom Hammond creates amazing dishes that make delicious use of the whole plant “from root to fruit.” An a la carte menu is available, but we would definitely recommend opting for the vegan degustation menu. This is an incredible, curated feast that’s perfect for a special night out. Trust us – a dinner at Tanaman will wow even the most stubborn carnivore.
Pels Supershop (previously known as Peloton Supershop) takes pride of place in the heart of the buzzy surf district of Berawa. Open since 2016, this trendy eatery never goes out of style and is beloved by visitors and long-time residents alike. Pels focuses on relaxed plant-based eats, from zucchini quinoa fritters to home-made pasta and yummy pizza. Their huge salads are a must try!
Proving that veganism is not just a diet but a holistic lifestyle, Moksa Ubud is not just a delicious plant-based restaurant but also features a permaculture garden and a dojo for practicing yoga, aikido, meditation and more. The farm-to-table restaurant serves incredible plant-based cuisine, from nourishing breakfast dishes to vegan sushi bowls, curries, burgers and beyond.
Ever since this cute-as-a-button café first opened its doors back in 2017, Kynd Community has been one of Bali’s vegan trailblazers. Today, its pastel façade has become a beloved fixture along chic Jalan Petitenget (they now have a second outlet in Canggu, too). While the cute décor certainly helps, the secret to Kynd’s success is simple: their all-vegan menu is consistently delicious. This is the kind of place that’ll have your steak loving friend exclaiming “I can’t believe this is vegan!” from appetisers all the way to dessert. Kynd is a great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner – try the Balinese Big Mac burger!
Sauce Tree Plant Based Bistro
This cute little Canggu eatery focuses on hearty comfort foods. Their nourishing plant-based menu has made them one of the most beloved vegan eateries in the area. Sauce Tree has created the ultimate vegan versions of all your comfort eats, from yummy burgers to creamy pastas. They even serve amazing “chicken” wings made from cauliflower – though you’d never guess it! Of course, it doesn’t exactly hurt that the venue is beautifully styled too.
When it comes to putting a healthy spin on fast food, Burgreens is a trailblazer in Bali. This is the perfect spot for when you’re craving a juicy burger but want to opt for something healthier. All Burgreens meals are plant-based and focus on nutritiously balanced whole foods. Besides burgers, they also serve other delicious comfort foods like Indonesian rendang and Korean bibimbap. The restaurant boasts cute boho chic décor and the dishes are beautifully styled too.
Founded all the way back in 2011, Alchemy Ubud is one of Bali’s original vegan restaurants. More than a decade later, this plant-based pioneer is still going strong – so much so that they now have an outlet down south in Uluwatu as well. Alchemy’s menu is not only plant-based and gluten free to boot, but the majority of dishes are served raw to preserve vitamins and minerals. The beautifully presented food is both nutritious and inspiring. The light and airy venue offers the perfect balance between bohemian flair and minimalist chic. Oh, and they also have a small shop where you can pick up healthy groceries, spa products, gifts and more.
Manggis in Canggu
Located smack dab in the middle of trendy Berawa, the perpetually packed Manggis is leading the pack when it comes to relaxed plant-based dining in Bali. This Asian fusion eatery has a wonderfully diverse menu that’ll take you from breakfast all the way to dinner. It’s near impossible to pick a favourite here: maybe it’s the burgers or the curries – though you might be partial to the ramen or the pasta instead. Whichever dish you choose, you’re guaranteed to go home with a full belly and a happy heart – and a burning desire to return the next day!
