This open air and healthy dining restaurant is at the front of Alaya Resort Jembawan and offers diners an extensive menu with lots of vegan and raw options. We enjoyed vegan breakfasts that were very tasty but the star of the show was our specially created vegan ‘Royal Balinese Tea’ which was so impressive we had other diners asking to photograph it! Be sure to order this in advance if you want the same experience…

Not only is the food at Moksa beautiful and plant based but the location alone makes it worth a visit.

Sayuri Healing Food

Sayuri Healing Food
JL Sukma kesuma no 2
Ubud
Bali 80571

Opening Times: 7am-10pm every day

This is for sure the place where all the cool kids hang out, it was packed with digital nomads and yogis going about their business safe in the knowledge there was healthy vegan and plant based food available with their almond milk cappuccino. It had a bustling and lively vibe when we visited and was packed, but that didn’t stop our food being served very quickly. The raw cheesecake was delicious, our wrap was very good but the vegan cheese plate was disappointing with not much cheese which also didn’t taste great. We had seen pictures of the cheese plate on their own social media and it looked totally different to what we were served, we would go back for sure but probably not order the cheese plate again…

Clear Cafe

Clear Cafe
Jalan Hanoman No.8
Ubud

Opening Times: 8am-11pm

We had not planned to dine here but upon passing we were both drawn to the large round door and decided to check it out. We are glad we did as our lentil soup was wholesome and delicious as was our vegan lasagna. With so many vegan options in Ubud it is easy to miss out the vegan friendly restaurants but this discovery shows it’s sometimes worth visiting them too, this would be a very good option if dining with non vegan friends.

This is certainly the best palce in Ubud to stock up on all kinds of healthy essentials including some of the excellent ‘All Things Nice’ spices to help re create the flavours of Bali in your own kitchen at home; they also have a well regarded restaurant just around the corner but for some reason we’ve never eaten there.
