    What to Expect
    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 favourite spots! Your food journey starts in the middle of the rice fields, on our office deck where your guide will offer a rundown for the night ahead. We’ll then depart and wind through the back streets of Bali, riding in a fully restored 1980 VW Kombi limo, with music playing and conversation flowing.

    We’ll visit a food market where your guide will take you in and out of the small alley ways highlighting some of the foods you will taste later on Eat Street. Our first stop will be a local roadside 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!  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.

    Unusually for a food tour, we’ll start in the car park! By day this is an assuming place for locals to park their cars but by night,  it’s the hippest food spot in town! And it happens to be home to the yummiest soto ayam (chicken noodle soup) in the area. 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. You’ll learn about traditions like ikan and ayam bakar (barbecued fish and chicken typically enjoyed with beer and a side of music!).

    If you like spice (or think you do), then we can stop at a small place specialising in Japanese fusion, where there’s a chili challenge that goes up five levels to “inferno” with the world’s hottest chilies!

    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 desert, which we’re going to grab at a small warung. This place is famous for its dessert made from a crumpet-style batter cooked in an earthenware pot over hot coals.

    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 night?!)

    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 night 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.

    We took this tour back in May with our friendly and knowledgeable guide I Made Susrama. Authentic local food in places we wouldn't have experienced otherwise and as we were the only 2 on the tour that evening, lots of opportunity to ask questions and learn about the Balinese way
