Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:

  • This tour directly employs 2 to 5 locals which helps to empower the local community.
  • All food prepared at the venues you visit is grown and bought locally. The vendors at the food market are all locals and there is no tourism here except for Urban Adventures.
  • By introducing different local dishes, in particular Babi Guling which is traditionally only served at ceremonies, this tour is a way for you to learn more about local culture and traditional ceremonies.
  • Embark on a culinary adventure in Denpasar, the central capital of Bali Island, where the vibrant Kreneng Market beckons with a bunch of local delicacies. Nestled near a heritage street in Central Denpasar, this bustling night market not only tantalizes your taste buds but also offers glimpses into Bali's rich history and culture.

    Your gastronomic journey starts at Kreneng Market, where our local expert will navigate you through narrow alleyways, unveiling a tapestry of flavors. Dive into the world of exotic fruits, savor the traditional Balinese dessert "Jaje Bali," and indulge in the renowned Babi Guling – a rotisserie-cooked suckling pig, traditionally reserved for special ceremonies. Your guide, a culinary expert, decodes the shared dish's various elements, ensuring you don't miss the delectable pork crackling.

    As you traverse the market's gastronomic wonders, sample comforting Indonesian soups like Soto Ayam or Bakso. For those with a sweet tooth, may try 'Jasuke' – sweet steamed corn with condensed milk and shredded cheese awaits, or relish the savory delight of 'Martabak Telur,' a traditional fried pancake.

    Post-feast, take a leisurely stroll along the heritage street, discovering a church adorned with traditional Balinese architecture and the Hindu Temple of Pura Agung Jagatnatha. Pause at Puputan Square, a historic battleground against colonialism in 1906, and stand at the 0 km mark – the heart of Bali Island.

    Continue westward to encounter the Nederlandsch-Indië Sokkelklok, a colonial-era clock monument, and the Catur Muka, a four-faced god monument at the intersection. Conclude your walking tour at an antique coffee shop, where authentic Indonesian Arabica Coffee, hot or cold, rejuvenates your senses.

    Despite the richness of your experience, the affordability of the culinary delights allows you to bring home extra treats at a mere USD$1-2 per item.

    Your guide (now your best foodie friend on Bali) will assist you with finding a taxi for your trip back to your hotel (or to the next stop for your day out). And now that you have the keys to Bali heritage foods, you can come back on your own to try even more local dishes.
