10 Traditional Balinese Meals You Should Try To Cook In Your Bali Villa’s Kitchen

There are lots of reasons why holidaymakers chose Bali villas as their preferred choice of accommodation rather than a hotel in Bali. One of the most obvious is privacy, given that you will be sharing the accommodation only with your friends or family, rather than hundreds of other holidaymakers as is the case in a hotel. Another benefit is that you can come and go as you please and are obviously not restricted to the specific mealtimes that hotels have.

Another benefit of a Bali villa concerning food is that you are free to eat whatever you wish rather than having to eat what your hotel offers at each mealtime. This allows you to purchase takeaway food and take it home with you or have it delivered, but there is an even better option and that is to cook meals yourself.

In many cases those meals may be similar to those that you would cook at home, however, given that there will be a plentiful supply of ingredients including meats, fish, poultry, vegetables, rice, noodles, and fruit, it would be even better if you were to cook and prepare some of the traditional dishes local to Bali.
