Zula, Vegetarian Paradise
, Seminyak – This casual cafe in Seminyak is packed to the brim with organic products on its shelves and refrigerator. They also have an extensive menu of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, macrobiotic and raw options. We love their soups, salads and desserts. Don’t miss the Dragon Bargain. It is indeed a good deal with a serving of soup (must try the pumpkin and ginger), a bowl of salad (shredded mixed vegetables, tempeh and organic soba noodles) and bread with cashew cheese.
, Seminyak – Raw vegan cuisine. A wonderful list of fresh juices and smoothies is accompanied by a line up of raw vegan dishes. My favourite is the almond bread with cashew cheese and dried tomatoes and mushrooms.
, Ubud – There’s something in this friendly cafe for everyone – vegan, vegetarian, raw, organic, gluten free, healthy. There are even some fish options for hubby who finds it hard to get through a meal without some animal consumption. The menu is extensive and children have been given good consideration too with a whole page of options that appeal to young appetites.
, Ubud – This cafe shows just how interesting healthy cuisine can be. An awesome range of nutritious foods is on show in the cafe, and a quick take away outlet next door sells a collection of cookies, granola bars and raw chocolate. A must stop.
, Ubud – An idyllic walk through rice paddies is the path to this vegetarian restaurant. Not only is the setting blissful but the menu too is a gorgeous selection of tasty wholesome dishes. Packed with delicious options, you can even pick your own vegetables from the garden to cook for your lunch.
