The Vegan Food
Breakfast was amazing with so much vegan food to be consumed that afterwards the only solution was to lay by the pool in one of the comfy four poster beds and recover. A huge selection of tropical fruit, freshly squeezed juices and coffee was almost enough but as the resident vegan the lovely chefs prepared a delicious Japanese dish every day including fruit sushi, vegetable sushi, miso soup, tofu and vegetables – it was divine.
Forget lunch, who does lunch when you’ve only finished a mountain of tasty fresh vegan food at 11am? Now we just do afternoon tea…
We’ve had a few vegan afternoon teas before (we are English after all) and they aren’t usually anything to write home about, but the Conrad Bali vegan afternoon teas have redefined this mealtime for us. Little pastries with spiced vegetable inside and crispy salad sandwiches all lead you to perfect little fruit skewers drizzled with zingy tamarind sauce, or luminous green mint jellies or dainty pots of Burbur Sum-Sum, a new food addiction in the making.
There’s an endless list of choices of teas, coffees, fruit infusions, mocktails, smoothies and juices but who cares about these when you can have small pots of pandan flavoured rice flour pudding (smooth not lumpy) drizzled with caramelly palm sugar and salted coconut foam. Oh yes, all else in the world pales into insignificance when you have a small pot of , a naturally vegan Indonesian delight, within your reach at afternoon tea.
