Bali Buda

bali-buda

Another favorite haunt for those seeking quality organic food choices. Bali Buda  have a lovely menu with many healthy dishes and great drinks and smoothies. They strive to offer healthy homemade meals that satisfy all dietary persuasions. The farms they buy our produce from have been under the supervision of BOA or Bali Organic Association for the past 10 years. Although a truly organic certificate is hard to come by in Bali due to the complex irrigation system, their produce is grown organically and is as chemically free as possible. We still make our bread with pure people power, even though we bake over 500 loaves of bread each morning before the sun rises.

They also have a health food store and bakery downstairs where you can get bread, raw chocolate and natural cosmetics etc. Pizza’s here a fabulous and they even do home delivery!
