Vegan Guide to Lombok

Vegan Food Quest Logo

*At the time of publication Lombok has been hit by a series of devastating earthquakes leading to loss of life, mass injuries and many people left homeless; our prayers go out to everyone affected by these tragic natural disasters*

We headed to Lombok intent on eating tempe every day and checking out some of the beaches it is famed for. Having just left we can assure you that we ate tempe at least once each day (usually more) and the beaches are indeed stunning. Our Vegan Guide to Lombok tells you about where we ate, where we tried to eat and a few vegan friendly luxury resorts in Lombok that we either stayed at or visited to check out their vegan food.

We will return for sure as there is so much more to see on this fabulous island…

Honky Tonks

Honky Tonks
Senggigi
Lombok

Opening Times: 3pm-midnight Wednesday to Monday (1am Friday and Saturday)

With just one night in Senggigi and arriving late we went looking for vegan food. The friendly staff spoke good English and were able to understand that we were vegan. We ordered nasi goreng vegetarian (no egg) with a side of fried tempe and tami cap cay which was vegetables in a rich gravy with fried noodles. The food was well priced, tasty, filling and just what we needed after a long day of travel.

Vegan Food in Mataram

Warung Vegetarian Waikuntha

Warung Vegetarian Waikuntha
Jln Selandir 2
Mataram

Opening Times: Every day 8.30am-2pm

Perfect. This simple roadside warung was so good we wished we were staying in Mataram longer to visit again.

We ordered ‘nasi campur’ the content of which varies daily; ours included rice, urab salad, tofu, tempe, eggplant curry, sweet corn fritters, satay, sambal and a selection of mock meats. 2 large servings of ‘nasi campur’ and 2 of our own lunch boxes full to take away cost just 65,000 IDR which is just $4.50 USD.

Maitry

Maitry
Jln Jayengraya 16
Mataram

Opening Times: Monday to Saturday 9am-8pm (closed Sunday)

We were only in Mataram for 1 day and this was Sunday, we went past just in case it was open but it was indeed closed,  so it would seem that the opening times are correct. We took a couple of pictures of the outside which will help you find it hopefully!

Vegan Food in Kuta

Yogi Bar

Yogi Bar
Jalan Pariwisata Pantai Kuta
Kuta
Lombok

Opening Times: 8am-11pm every day

We headed to Yogi Bar as it was listed on Happy Cow and also looked to be on the beach. However, it appears to be incorrectly pinned on Happy Cow (we’ve submitted a new location) so we didn’t find it unitl after we had eaten lunch. It’s actually on the main street and looked very nice with a few vegan options on the menu including a vegan nasi campur with red rice.

Sea Salt

Sea Salt
Jalan Raya Pantai Kuta
Kuta
Lombok

Opening Times: 11am-10pm every day

We spotted Sea Salt when walking along the promenade and liked the look of it so explored further. We were so happy we stopped as the staff were friendly and there were vegan options on the menu. We opted for a quinoa and tempe salad (which had HUGE chunks of delicious tempe) and sides of hand cut fries and wok fried greens in soy. All was very good other than the greens which had too much sugar added.

Kenza Cafe

Kenza Cafe
Jalan Raya Kuta
Kuta
Lombok

Opening Times: 7.30am-10pm every day

Kenza Cafe is a cool looking spot right on the main junction in Kuta. The menu is mainly vegetarian with a number of vegan options including scrambled tofu and vegetable wraps. We would definately head back there if we return to Kuta as we really liked the vibe.

Namora Vegetarian

Namora Vegetarian
Jalan Pariwisata Pantai Kuta
Kuta
Lombok

Opening Times: 12 midday-10pm every day (closed Friday)

Ok so we’re a bit confused by this place. We went looking for Felice Vegetarian which is listed on Happy Cow and when we arrived (to the correct location) it now appears to be called Namora Vegetarian but was closed despite the displayed times showing that they should be open. A recent review on Happy Cow says they now also serve non vegan food and at first glance this appears to be correct. So confused and disappointed as this was the only all vegetarian option listed for Kuta…

Food Cart

Somewhere in Kuta!
Lombok

Opening Times: 12 midday-10pm every day (closed Friday)

The elusive vegetarian food cart in Kuta. We had been told that this was worth looking for so we set off to find it. We can assure you it was not where it was meant to be, but sat looking rather forlorn on a side street providing sheletr from the sun for a dog! Please let us know if anyone finds this opening as we would love to know whether we missed out or not?

Add to this some of the most creative and tastiest vegan food we’ve enjoyed for a long time and you’re onto a good thing.

Diamond Beach Villa

Diamond Beach Villa
Tanjung
Lombok

Sprawling luxury private villa with 5 bedrooms, huge pool beautiful gardens and private beach.

The staff team are happy to prepare food upon request and our vegan breakfasts were tasty as was our ‘family style’ Indonesian vegan dinner enjoyed next to the pool. This is a place to head with a group of friends to really get away from it all whilst enjoying the authentic Indonesian surroundings and some damn tasty vegan Indonesian food.

Here is our detailed review of Diamond Beach Villa in Lombok.

Mana Retreat

Mana Retreat
Jalan Baturiti
Kuta
Lombok

Think retreat, think yoga, think healthy plant based food and you won’t be far off with your expectations if you check in at Mana Lombok.

We stopped by to join a yoga class and for a vegan meal whilst in the area and were very impressed indeed. Caryl loved the yoga class whilst Paul chilled by the pool before enjoying two vegan options from the specials board including an awesome tempe burger served on polenta.

Origin Lombok

Origin Lombok
Jalan Sengkol
Kuta
Lombok

Our home for a couple of nights in Kuta was Origin Lombok and we were very pleased with our choice. We communicated prior to check in to make sure that we would be well looked after as vegans and were assured this would not be a problem. This turned out to be correct with the team happily preparing vegan fried rice with tempe for breakfast and for dinner we enjoyed a vegan pizza and also a simple but tasty vegetable and tempe curry.
