This lovely cafe can be found around Sweet Water Lake in Koh Phangan. Their menu offers a range of organic vegan and gluten free items. Continue reading
As I write this post, I am currently hiding under the cover of this funky restaurant. When I arrived to the island a couple days ago, I was intrigued by the signs on the road that boasted organic and healthy farm to table fare. Really? In Koh Phangan?
Situated in Em Quartier, this lovely little restaurant and grocery store is located across from the Food Hall on the first floor. It’s a great place to drink some New Zealand wines and stop for lunch in between shopping and beauty treatments.
They have several different gluten free items on their menu, including a tasty beet root and goat cheese salad, roast chicken and this delicious salmon dish with sautéed cabbage and mustard seeds. Oh, and did I mention their French fries are gluten free as well? They are cooked in their own dedicated fryer. I’m not sure where else you can find gf chips and homemade ketchup. Bliss!
Today’s post is all about surviving gluten free on the little lovely island of Bali. Known for its beaches, rice terraces and black volcanic sands, Bali is great little island paradise that caters for many appetites.
I was fortunate to stay for 8 days during my Songkran holidays and discovered some interesting things when it comes to food and its customs:
- Balinese people love to fry things
- They cook with fish and soy sauce
- Rice noodles and wrappers can be found in most restaurants
- Fresh fruit juices are delicious
- Black rice pudding is WAY TOO SWEET for even the most devout sweet tooths out there!
- There are 2 major wine producers in Bali – Two Islands and Hagan. Both are quite nice (and cheaper if you purchase in shops instead of restaurants!)
