Balibola is one of the latest hypes in Bali and it is easily one of the best we’ve been to lately.
It is a located in Seminyak, alongside many other great cafes and dining options, but it certainly doesn’t get overshadowed by the other players.
With a strong belief that you should be inviting healthy foods into your body and only eating meat occasionally, Balibola is a plant-based cafe with several great vegan options. Its well-thought design and interior are also made for Instagram.
Balibola prides themselves as a flexitarian cafe. In other words, they believe in a plant-based diet with the occasional use of meat. ’Boba’ means ball in both Indonesian and Spanish; a perfect name for this cafe for they specialize in savoury balls.
On Balibola’s menu, you would find healthy dishes inspired by staple meals all over the world—mostly meatless, of course. There are meatless balls options (6 types of plant-based balls), very pretty smoothie bowls, burgers and wraps, brunch options and even a kids’ menu!
What we enjoyed most is the Vegan Nasi Campur (IDR92,000)—a generous serving of the Indonesian classic with faux beef rendang, faux chicken satay and several other veggie sides. We never thought a meatless Nasi Campur would taste this good!
Other signature items to try include the OMG! Ricotta Pancakes (IDR180,000) that’s good for two pax, The WTF! Waffle (IDR18,000) that is vegan, and the range of tropical smoothie bowls that are meticulously put together for you to flex it on Instagram.
Even if you are not a fan of meatless food, the gorgeous cafe is worth a visit. Of pastels and pops of baby colours, the vibrant paintings on the wall are a sight to behold. There is also an abundance of greenery within the space! Too pretty, too pretty. Just dining there itself makes us so happy!
