As you may have noticed I don’t do a food guide for every city I visit. I’m not a restaurant critic so I leave that to the food bloggers! That being said, every once in a while I visit a city where the quality of food blows me away. Paris, Barcelona, Port Douglas and Sydney’s Surry Hills are perfect examples of foodie cities I’ve loved!
I’m now adding Sanur to that list cause every restaurant we visited in this small beach town was incredible. What really sets Sanur apart from other cities with great restaurants is the price. You won’t be paying $100 for a great dinner for two here, more like $5 – $20 for two. With prices this low you can throw your budget away and “splurge” on every fancy restaurant and beachfront cafe your heart desires!
Now on to that list….
This small restaurant is located right on the beach, so you can enjoy your meal with a stunning view of the ocean! We loved the friendly service and really enjoyed our meals – we went a few times and had the chicken panini, cheeseburger, smoothie bowl and beef tenderloin.
Chicken panini = around 37k IDR ($3.70 CAD)
Soul in a Bowl
This cafe felt very Australian to me. It’s picturesque and perfect for brunch. I happen to like this place any time of day. Their jerk pork sandwich, french toast and custom egg breakfasts are all fantastic.
Egg breakfast with avocado = 55k IDR ($5.50 CAD)
Warung Little Bird
No frills, but a great atmosphere. The music is pumping, every table is full and the Balinese food is fresh and simple. Be prepared to wait for a table here, but I promise it’s worth it! Their fresh watermelon juice was the best I’ve ever had in Bali.
Mie goreng ayam = 25k IDR ($2.50 CAD)
Note: Warung Coconut Tree is the same owners and basically the same menu. If you love one, it’s worth it to try the other!
Sanur Night Market
I loved this market so much we visited it more than once, and I even wrote an entire article about it. Sanur Night Market is fun, cheap and some of the best food you’ll have in the city. Don’t miss the chicken satay stand!
Chicken satay x20, water and rice = 40k IDR ($4 CAD)
This delicious bakery makes, you guessed it, bread. We visited Bread Basket a few times for breakfast and lunch and had the most delicious sandwiches on bagels, ciabatta buns and croissants. Their desserts are great too!
Sandwiches = start at 30k IDR ($3 CAD)
Grocer & Grind
I consider this place to be cheap by Canadian standards, but a little bit pricey fro Bali. None the less their food is delicious and this is a great place for a “nicer” date night. They have a wood burning oven and make incredible pizzas. I love their “delicious dipping” appetizer that came with a few different dips and fresh bread from the wood burning oven. They have a decent selection of wine as well.
Delicious dipping appetizer = 65k IDR ($6.50 CAD)
