Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:
In Bali, the villages all have nightly food markets where locals go when the sun goes down. In Seminyak and beyond, locals head out with their family and friends to local ‘Eat Street,’ and on this Bali food tour, we’re joining them at all their favorite spots! Your food journey starts at a local food market, where your guide will take you in and out of the small alleyways highlighting some of the foods you will taste later on Eat Street. Then will visit a warung (café) famous for its babi guling (rotisserie-cooked suckling pig). Your guide will order for you a shared dish for two people and explain all that appears on the plate before you — which will have maybe five or six different elements. Don’t forget to buy some pork crackling! From there, we drive to a local Eat Street in Bali, tucked just behind the major tourist area and easy to get to — but oh-so local! We’ll start at the top of the street, where your expert guide will escort you through the numerous small warungs and stalls, picking out things for us to eat as we go. The street here is jam-packed with motorbikes and cars, and the later it gets, the busier it becomes; we go a little early to make sure we can get into the places we want. Of course, your guide is also an expert on local food, and will explain to you the food and traditions of what is on offer. On arrival, your guide will explain all the places that are available for eating here — far too many for one afternoon! The good news, though, is we always share dishes, so you’ll have lots of room to try it all. One must-try is the very yummy soto ayam (chicken noodle soup). This is one of Indonesia’s most famous national dishes. Walking along the main street, you’ll learn about all the different culinary influences on offer: Javanese, Sumatran, Sulawesi, Japanese and Thai/Indonesian fusion. Or, if you need an energy boost, how about an energy-filled dessert, Indonesian-style! You’ll see “Joss Milk” sold all over the country, which is an Indonesian energy powder you mix with milk. Believe it or not, it goes amazingly well with our favourite dessert, which we’re going to grab at a small warung. This dessert is made from a crumpet-style batter cooked in an earthenware pot over hot coals. Choose from the top 10 list or design your own; our favourite is Toblerone, banana, ice cream and cheese. The prices are cheap all long Eat Street, so if you decide you want to buy some more treats, you can pick up some extras for about USD$1-2. (How much can you try in one day?!) Your guide (now your best foodie friend in 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’s local Eat Street, you can come back on your own to try even more local dishes.
