Siboghana is one in every of our new favorite locations to eat in Ubud. It’s set in a household compound south of the centre and the Balinese dishes really feel like home-cooking. All the pieces is vegan and cooked in coconut oil with no MSG. The meals is flavourful, scrumptious and extremely good worth.
The one draw back is that the meals takes some time however that’s as a result of every little thing is cooked to order. You possibly can’t go unsuitable however the nasi campur is a spotlight with purple rice, vegetable curry, sayur urap greens, tempeh, satay, crispy mushrooms, begedil potato cutlet, and a dollop of spicy ginger sambal.

Our favorite dishes have been the mapo tofu and the braised eggplant. Each are described as “gentle” on the menu however they have been really fairly spicy and really flavourful. The BBQ noodles have been a bit too candy. Though the meals was good we have been postpone by the tiny balls of soy meat that have been in each dish. They have been sufficiently small to disregard, however as we’re not pretend meat followers it has put us off returning (I’m undecided in case you might ask them to go away it out).

four) Sayuri Therapeutic Meals Cafe
Ubud is the uncooked vegan capital of the world and Sayuri is one other new addition. It’s my favorite of the uncooked eating places with a vivid area, quick WiFi, and scrumptious wholesome meals. I really like the bowls that include plenty of veggies, sauerkraut, and a alternative of dressing and toppings. The “cheese” croutons are wonderful and I couldn’t imagine they have been comprised of coconut (sadly on my second go to they weren’t crunchy although).
I’m a fan of the Decide Me Up inexperienced smoothie with berries and pineapple so it doesn’t style too “inexperienced”. It’s also possible to have it as a smoothie bowl with a alternative of toppings—the coconut cinnamon chips are scrumptious. The uncooked desserts look tempting.
Though I liked Sayuri, Simon isn’t a fan (he doesn’t like all of Ubud’s uncooked eating places!), so in case you’re not into uncooked meals this may not be the place for you. If you’re searching for a flavourful, inventive, and wholesome meal, then give it a attempt.

Breakfast consists of scrumptious pancakes—each the Chocoholics and Colada (pineapple and coconut) have been delectable, as have been the hash browns topped with caramelised onions and bitter cream.

The Blended Platter is the easiest way to attempt a bit little bit of every little thing—nachos, guacamole, quesadilla, burrito, flauta and cauliflower buffalo wings. Excellent for sharing with pals over a cocktail (Simon recommends the espresso martini).
I didn’t benefit from the mains fairly as a lot. The tempeh tacos have been small and the filling wasn’t very thrilling (the tempeh tacos at Sage are much better). They do make their very own genuine corn tortillas, although—the one place we’ve present in Ubud that does. The jackfruit burrito was good however simply felt prefer it was lacking one thing.
Dessert was enjoyable—a chef got here out and flambeed my bananas in tequila in entrance of me.
We loved our meal at La Pacha Mama—the decor, service, cocktails and a few dishes are wonderful—but it surely’s costly and the meals didn’t fairly dwell as much as my expectations. We will certainly return, however not as usually as we do for Mexican at Sage and Taco Casa.
