Learn about all the different culinary influences on offer: Javanese, Sumatran, Sulawesi, Malaysian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai/Indonesian fusion. Explore Bali’s Eat Street where locals head out with their friends and family on a gastronomic adventure as they sample a range of cuisines. Indulge in roadside warung (café) famous for its babi guling or rotisserie-cooked suckling pig. Be sure to tuck into some delicious pork crackling!
Start at the top of the street at Eat Street and stroll past the numerous small warungs and stalls and make your way down a dark street to the local taxi drivers’ favourite soup kitchen, a very simple cement-block building that is home to the yummiest soto ayam (chicken noodle soup) in the area.
After a hearty meal, visit the local subak temple which is a gathering place for farmers and walk into the expansive rice fields of Kerobokan and trek through the terraces, using the tops of walls as a pathway. Here you’ll learn how the subak irrigation system works. This ancient irrigation system was first introduced by Hindu priests when they arrived in Bali over 1,200 years ago and is still very much in use today. See how the subak system creates ecosystems for new life and witness plantations of rice, tomatoes, beans, bananas, eggplant, chilies, corn, sugar cane, and water snails!
