Known for more than being just a restaurant, Living Food Lab has other identities that segregate it from other populous restaurants such as- creative teaching space, event organization, coworking friendly venue, and healing space.
With their food being made from love and integrity, this cafe believes strongly in food and its power to nourish and rejuvenate. Open daily from 7:00am-7:00 pm, the Living Food Lab offers a diversifying range of fully vegan menu options such as exquisite smoothies, smoothie bowls, sandwiches, salads, desserts, coffee, tea and much more.
In reference to American money, 10,000 IDR (Indonesian Rupiah) is equivalent to 0.70 USD. Using this note, for an average sandwich, you are looking at the price of 15K which converts into 1.05 USD.
As you can see, the prices are easily affordable making your stay in Canggu, Bali even more enticing.
At the Living Food Lab I have a few all-time favorites. Let’s start with the raw vegan pizza. The base is raw and dehydrated, you can mix and match:
- Pesto & cheese: basil-cilantro pesto, spinach, cashew cheese and
- Rawmesan tomato: tomato pesto, fresh tomatoes, cashew cheese and
- Rawmesan pineapple: tomato pesto, pineapple, minced tempeh, cashew cheese, rawmesan
Let’s move on to the Mango Wrap which is filled with ginger paté, lettuce, fresh vegetables, sesame garlic dipping sauce. So so yum!
Last but certainly not least, it’s always a delight to order a quick DIY Salad. It’s amazing if you are in a hurry as it’s still so healthy!
At their fresh salad bar, you can choose your own or in house base: mix green lettuce salad/rice with different toppings such as veggies, seeds, nuts, and dried chips. Choose your favorite dressing from sesame garlic, pesto, tahini, mustard, or red vinaigrette
5 toppings cost 40K, 7 Toppings 60K, and 9 Toppings 75K only.
I love to sit and work all afternoon upstairs at their cocreation area and drink a nice cup of their homemade infusion tea. Flavors you can choose from are toasted red rice, ginger turmeric, mint, lemongrass, and kaffir lime.
With a 4.5 star rating on Google Reviews, Matcha Cafe Bali is known as the go-to hotspot in the neighborhood of Canggu, Bali. Known for its impeccable matcha tea and tea lattes and Indonesian coffee, this cozy cafe offers a vegan menu with cuisine options that are free of refined sugar and gluten-free.
Fortunately, this cafe serves all-day breakfasts, brunches, and lunches. Using high-quality ingredients that are locally sourced, the Matcha Cafe aims to serve its customers with nothing short of a premium experience.
A hot item offered on their menu is the Tuna Poke Bowl which costs 70K IDR or 4.94 USD. The ingredients of this appetizing bowl include ahi tuna, avocado, pineapple, alfalfa sprouts, and seaweed.
My all-time favorites are the ‘Matcha Nutella Pancake’ – Fluffy matcha pancakes stack layered with sliced banana, house-made vegan Nutella, toasted coconut flakes & crunchy cacao nibs (Vegan) and the ‘Berry me’ smoothie which consists of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, goji berries, chia seeds, and almond milk. Unbelievably yum!
This quaint, locally-owned vegan restaurant will have your tastebuds tripping with its delectable vegan treats such as mushroom skewers, grilled baby carrots, mushroom coco cream, and thyme beetroot. Can you say detox?
With a superb recommendation from Victoria testifying that “the food is amazingly tasty vegan food; the juice cleanse program excellent; the food is organic locally sourced fruit and vegetables”, you can’t go wrong with trying this cafe.
Oma Jamu has a fresh vegetable and fruit market located in their restaurant and you can order to get fresh pressed detox juices every day (even delivered to your doorstep!)

With the cuisine catered towards homestyle Indian food, the variety of Roti Daal’s menu is ethereal as the food melts in your mouth.
With two locations, one in Canggu and one at Kuta Beach, Roti Daal is well-known for its flavor and use of multiple, traditional Indian spices.
What differentiates Roti Daal is the fact that you are able to try different assortments of flavorful foods that vary daily. This unique concept is inspired by the traditions of India.
This eco-friendly restaurant is suitable for you if you are searching for authentic, Indian home-style cooked meals.
Hot Tip: Make sure you try their yummy desert KAJU BAARFI/KATHLI which is made with cashew nut. Bon Appetit!
La Brisa Bali isn’t necessarily a 100% vegan restaurant; however, it does offer vegan-friendly options. We had to mention this restaurant as it is especially beautiful at night for watching the sunset.
Situated on Echo Beach, La Brisa, which translates into ‘sea breeze’, was built using reclaimed fisherman boat wood which gives this restaurant its unique ambiance.
If life is about creating magical moments, you made it to the right place.
Dinner In Bali- Experience the Taste of Exotic Cuisines
Now that you have a taste of a handful of vegan restaurants and cafes, below is a list of the top 4 hotspots for enjoying a lovely dinner in Bali.
Bali Bowls is different in the sense of introducing an innovative dining concept called “Noche”. This conception encompasses an intimate setting with a candlelit dinner.
Enhancing environmentally-friendly products, their signature Bali bowls are composed of abandoned coconut shells which are crafted by local families providing them with a continuous, sustainable income.
If you dare to try something new, Bali Bowls’ “Banana Leaf Baked Chicken Breast” is a must, costing only 75K, or 5.29 USD. This dish is a best seller as it is made with steamed tofu, carrot puree, soy sprouts, and red onions.
Aside from this tasty menu option, their Hot Chick Bowl is also a favorite amongst customers as it is filled with avocado, spicy chicken, egg, and more.
Bali Bowls and Smoothies has just recently opened up a second branch in Canggu, right next to the co-working space Outpost. The new branch beams of pure cuteness, you are totally missing out if you don’t pay a visit.
Plunge in their pool and/or enjoy one of their super famous Smoothie Bowls, guaranteed made with LOVE.
The mantra of Taman Nauli, “Eat.Love.Dream.Peace”, is quite fitting for this restaurant as they are also a yoga studio where you are able to book overnight stays in their rooms that contain breathtaking views of Bali’s luscious greenery.
With the additional service of cooking classes offered here, Taman Nauli offers exquisite menu options ranging from cheeseburgers to Indonesia’s finest, traditional cuisines.
Were you aware that Ulekan is a word depicting the traditional “mortar and pestle” used to create spicy sauces?
Curators of other loved restaurants and cafes in Canggu, Bali such as Watercress and Milk & Madu, Ulekan offers exceptional Indonesian cuisine. Striving to promote local farms and unity, this food of this restaurant is made without the use of palm oil or monosodium glutamate (MSG). Instead, everything is halal-friendly.
As there are endless options on Ulekan’s menu which can make it hard to choose, Ulekan offers a tasting menu with wine at the price of 250K, or 17.65 USD, that is shared between two people. Alternatively, if you wish to order your own meal, we highly recommend the Wok Stir Fry with fried lobster as a topping.
Aside from food, multiple events occur here on a frequent basis. For example, every Friday is dedicated to Legong x Ulekan which is a Bali-inspired live dance performance to go with your 3-course meal starting at 7:00 pm.
This burger joint is suitable for all ages with its broad menu options of quality burgers. What makes the Shmurger Burger shack unique is the potato bun itself.
Unlike competitors, this bun does not become soggy but rather crispy to the bite. Hop into this specialty burger dive to discover what burger is best for your appetite.
