I found that Bali has so many organic and vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants available pretty much everywhere. It’s great since I’m cutting down on meat consumption. My friends and I went to eat at Cafe Organic – Garden Gangstas and it totally exceeded my expectations! I’ve tried to go vegetarian or vegan, but always went back to being a carnivore after a few days because I’d crave a steak. I definitely recommend this place if you’re ever in Canguu. They also have a location in Seminyak, but we went to this location because I accidentally selected the wrong address when ordering a Grab (Southeast Asia’s version of Uber). Haha, oops!
The Skinny Coconut Long Black – Black coffee with coconut oil on top. It’s so simple. I’m obsessed with anything coconut related because it’s so good for your hair and skin.
Kombucha is… kombucha. It’s an acquired taste. I definitely could taste the pineapple, but not so much of the basil. It’s still tastes really good.
The Naga Dragon Smoothie Bowl – pitaya puree with chia seeds, granola, shredded coconut, almond milk, bananas, mango, strawberries, and dragonfruit.
The Mezze Platter was one of my favorites. Sliced cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, sundried tomato eggplant babaganoush, chickpea hummus, beetroot dip, Mediterranean herbed vegan feta roasted eggplant rolls (so good!), falafels, and pita bread.
Matcha pancakes with raw chocolate coulis and strawberries. So, you’re probably going to hate me for saying this, but I hate chocolate. It was okay for me but I’m sure you’d love it if you have a sweet tooth.
The Smashed Avo – avocado toast on sour dough with sauteed onions and an egg on top.
My favorite dish at this restaurant is the Kawaii bowl. Kawaii Bowl – sesame crusted tofu, beet rice noodles, seaweed, watercress, carrots, cucumbers, pickled ginger, sauerkraut, snow peas, avocado, with asian peanut sauce. I loved the beet rice noodles and the sesame crusted tofu. This dish was so flavorful, I wasn’t even thinking about how I wasn’t consuming any meat.
I would literally eat here every day if there was a location in Boston!
