Tasting awesomeness - Food
Blending a variety of aromatic spices with vegetables and meat is what Balinese cuisine is all about. Rice is the prime ingredient of most food items accompanied with vegetables, seafood and meat. Balinese widely use seafood, pork, chicken, fruits and vegetables in their preparations, some of which reflect the traditions of the island of Bali. However, since most Hindus do not consume beef, it is rarely or never consumed in Bali. Bali celebrates many of its traditions preparing ornately cooked foods. Its warungs (food stands), night markets, and fruit vendors sell local delicacies that suit every palate.
There can be several places to choose from when deciding where to eat in Bali, be it the local fare at a warung or a fusion of international and local menus at a fine deli. But some stand out from the rest of the places to eat in Bali.
