Wanderfood Wednesday — An Organic Treat — Ubud, Bali

Here we are for another week of Wanderfood Wednesday kindly hosted by Wanderlust and Lipstick.

Sari Organick

I was very impressed with the availability of amazingly good organic food when I was in Bali this past winter. One restaurant that I was told not to miss was Sari Organik located in the midst of a scenic and serene Ubud rice paddy. I managed to get there on my next to last day in Ubud, and I was not disappointed.

The restaurant is very easy to find. I had a driver from my hotel drop me off at the rice field and enjoyed the peaceful ten minute walk to the restaurant. You can also opt for a motorcycle taxi. When I saw all the amazing choices available on the menu I was glad that I had walked.

Choosing a main course was not easy. I finally decided on the organic grilled tempe with roasted vegetables. OH MY, was it GOOD. The vegetables were a little crisp and bursting with flavor. I savored every morsel. Along with my dish I had an avocado juice, which I had written about previously here. I will say again, it was the best I had in Bali, and I sampled lots during the month I was there.

In addition to the fantastic, inexpensive food, you will be treated to stunning rice paddy views from the open air restaurant. The restaurant is popular, so it’s best to arrive early. You can also have a wander around the farm.

    • Hi Francis………..Enjoy Siem Reap. There are lots of good places to eat there as well.

  16. My first time to here to about this open air restaurant in Bali. If we knew about it we could have visited it a couple of months back during our Bali vacation. Do you have a map for this? I'd like to show it to a friend.

    • Hi, Next time you’re in Bali you’ll have an awesome new restaurant to try!
      I don’t have a map. However, the restaurant is very popular. Your hotel will be able to show you where it is. I had the hotel driver take me to where the rice paddy path begins, and then I walked in. It took about 15 minutes and I was not rushing. There are also motorcycles that will drive you for a small fee.

  17. Great post! Thanks for sharing this!
