Bali, the ultimate beach getaway from Singapore, has always had its own allure. Beautiful beaches, lush rice terraces, luxury resorts and delectable local cuisine just two-and-a-half-hours away from the Lion City? We just can’t get enough of this tropical paradise.
Recent years have seen massive changes in its culinary scene, the result of cuisines from all over the world being brought in by beach-loving expats who collectively chose to call the gorgeous Indonesian island home. Not that we blame them — life truly is better by the sea.
With the trendiest restaurants, cafés and lounges by world-class chefs and bartenders sprouting up on the island, Bali’s culinary and entertainment scene is becoming increasingly sophisticated. It’s no longer just about Babi Guling or Ayam Betutu — though such classics will always remain our go-to comfort food. (To find out where you can have the best Babi Guling in Bali, check out these recommendations by Bali’s top concierges here.) These days, the island’s restaurants are rolling out more unconventional offerings the likes of tapas, wood-fired seafood, and homemade falafel.
