Warung Nasi Bali Men Weti
I can think of no better way than Nasi Campur to start our Bali street food tour. This mixed rice dish is a popular breakfast choice among Bali locals. The main part of the dish includes rice, bean sprout, coconut flakes and cassava leaves. Besides, it is also served along with fried peanut, chicken heart, fried chicken skin, shredded chicken and half of an egg. The most famous and legendary stall out of all is Nasi Bali or Nasi Campur Ayam Men Weti, Sanur, Bali. It is originally opened by Ibu Made Weti in the 1970s and after she died, her step daughter is now taking charge of it. The place is open on the sidewalk and quite far from the parking lot. If you cannot eat spicy then you can order a portion of non-spicy instead. Price is 25,000 IDR ($1.83) per plate. Opening time: 8AM to 12 Noon or 7.30 am – 11.00 am.
Sate Plecing Arjuna – Top Bali street food place
When it comes to Indonesian food or Bali street food, Sate (Satay) is always listed on top. Sate is a kind of grilled and skewered meat. Meat skewers are often served with chilli sambal and spicy sauce. It may look a bit spicier than it is. The meat part can vary from beef, pork, chicken, goat to fish. All the skewers are then openly grilled over charcoal fire. To enjoy this amazing Indonesian street food, you can go to Sate Plecing Arjuna.
Warung Mak Beng
Warung Mak Beng is the place you come to have some Balinese fish. This is a local Bali restaurant in Sanur and its fame comes from the fish set menu including a dish of fried fish with rice and a bowl of amazing fish soup. A standard portion is priced at 45,000 IDR (3.15 USD).

Babi Guling Pak Dobiel
The next well-known Bali street food is babi guling which is a classic Bali pork dish. Babi guling can be translated as “turning pig” and this refers to the pig spit turned by hand over fire. The pig is still mall and suckling. Before the whole pig is roasted, it is covered with a spicy mix including garlic, black pepper, turmeric, coriander seeds and lemongrass. After that, the pig will be chopped into small pieces and be served with rice and vegetables as well. In addition, the dish also comes with a hot bowl of soup as well. If you are spicy lover, feel free to ask for some sambal. You can find the best plate of Bali babi guling in Babi Guling Pak Dobiel.
