The Vegan Food
All of our meals were taken at ‘Dapoer’ (named after the Indonesian word for kitchen) which is an imposing and beautiful bamboo structure that sits proudly at the heart of Bambu Indah. Choose to dine with your own group at one of the many seating areas, or alternatively sit at the Community Table and get to know your fellow guests over dinner and a glass of wine.
The restaurant follows the ‘Slow Food Bali’ guidelines by using at least 75% Indonesian ingredients, sustainably managing their waste and paying a fair wage to all of their staff. This commitment alongside many fruits, vegetables and herbs being grown on site (using natural fertilisers and compost) by the talented team of gardeners, is something we loved about dining at Bambu Indah.
Breakfast included various vegan options and we started with a healthy and vibrant fruit plate, this was followed by what many vegans dream of for breakfast, a vegan burger! We search for vegan burgers wherever we are but it’s normally in the evening and not for breakfast. When we spotted a vegan burger on the breakfast menu at Bambu Indah we were delighted. Served bun-less, with a hearty salad, sambal and ketchup, it was a much healthier and lighter option than the name might suggest (but delicious all the same). The other dish that we selected for breakfast was one of our all time favourite vegan breakfast options, tofu scramble. This was a tasty version that included a selection of vegetables (note: the tofu scramble would normally be served with toast but unfortunately none of the bread on offer was vegan).
