Must try dishes in Bali
Influences from all corners of the globe make up the dishes of Bali. Balinese food is abundant in spices and can be overpowering if you are not comfortable with eating spicy foods. Most of the best Balinese foods we’ve tried were in Ubud and smaller villages. If you’re feeling homesick, Kuta and Seminyak has many chain restaurants such as Bubba Gump, McDonalds, and Starbucks.
Traditional Dining Etiquette
Cake is always served with coffee or tea, nuts and krupuk (shrimp chips) are sometimes found with your meal. When dining with locals, hosts do not usually eat with guests. Also Balinese eat with their hands, using only the right hand. The left hand is considered impure, a common belief throughout Indonesia. They also do not hand or receive things with their left hand and would not waive at anyone with their left hand.
