Amed Food, Bali

Amed Food, Bali

2 Going 1 Way

A blog following the adventures of Sam and Georgi around the world. Join us on our adventure as we travel, eat, inspire.

Amed was definitely my favourite area we went to in Bali, you can read about our time there HERE. Amed doesn’t have the sprawl of cafes, restaurants and bars that Canggu/Kuta/Seminyak has, but it’s a lot quieter and less touristy, which was perfect for us. I have put together my top picks for the Amed area, hope you enjoy.
Warung Enak, number one for cheap eats on TripAdvisor and a lovely little local restaurant in general. Warung Enak ticked all the boxes! Value, quality food and a nice setting. The restaurant is candle lit, and has soft jazz playing, which sets the mood for a lovely evening out. I went for the Nasi campur special (IDR70K) a mix of the local dishes all served as a thali style dish. The flavour combinations were amazing and the beef rendang was simply beautiful.

Georgi had the Barracuda special (IDR60K). If we were to go again I would definitely go from the fish board. Everything I saw come out of the kitchen looked so fresh and smelt amazing. I would highly recommend the daily specials after tasting the barracuda. On arrival you also get free garlic bread and water for the table, which is an added bonus in these parts. Definitely worth the visit, even if you’re just passing through Amed.
Galanga, this little guesthouse / restaurant is a healthy eaters dream. They do a range of incredible salads in all sizes as well as tempe burgers, wraps and sandwiches. Georgi had the tempe burger which came with these incredible sweet potato fries but they were more like sweet potato mash wedges! Also accompanying the dish was a small sweet corn soup and side salad, incredible value at IDR50k. I had the spicy chicken wrap, the wrap was more snack sized but I should have guessed by the small price tag. I was left wanting more but helped Georgi out with the stack of sweet potatoes she had on her plate lol.

We have the occasional tendency to crave Italian food, as the best of us do, and Gustos was Amed’s answer. We had been told the pizzas were big, but we still went and ordered two… They were huge, incredible value for IDR80k. I had the chicken curry pizza which had a sort of katsu taste to it, really really nice. Nothing like I have ever had before. The restaurant is overlooking the water and would be a great lunch location on a clear day. We went at night and the place was lit up with candles, perfect for an evening meal, but not so perfect for my camera, which seems to hate the night time lol. Picture courtesy of my iPhone!

The Meeting Point – what a great little cafe! Such a chilled out place to spend a couple of hours after a morning snorkelling or riding up to the temples. The cafe does a range of juices, shakes and fresh coffee. The food tastes as good as it looks, the salads were fresh and really enjoyable! I had the chicken teriyaki salad, which was worth so much more than it’s IDR55k price tag! The shredded chicken was so moorish and the sauce was perfectly balanced.

Georgi had the warm pumpkin and feta salad, we also shared a portion of garlic bread (IDR10k), which hit the spot!

They also had a range of incredible desserts, we went for the brownies BUT you have to try the chocolate volcano! Now that is a chocolate lovers dream. I would definitely recommend popping in for a breakfast or lunch on your travels. If you come out of The Meeting Point and turn right and head around the corner you will get the best view of Mt Agung, what an added bonus!
