Total Bali Food Tour, Rice Terraces & Eat Street

This Total Bali Food Tour will literally take you from farm to feast, starting with a trek through the rice terraces, and finishing with a street food adventure packed with local flavours!

Itinerary

Our Bali Total Food Tour will whisk you away from the tourist track and introduce you to real local life — through its food! This tour combines two of our top-selling Bali tours Hidden Rice Terraces Trek and Local Eat Street Tour) for one epic adventure.

We'll start out on the rice terraces of Kerobokan that define the country’s agricultural industry. Here, your guide will explain how the subak irrigation system works — it’s an ancient irrigation system, having first been introduced by Hindu priests when they arrived on Bali over 1,200 years ago, but is still very much in use today. The subak system is about so much more than just watering plants, though. It creates ecosystems for new life, and is bound by the community’s temples, where water priests honour the relationship between humans, the Earth, and the gods.

You’ll learn more about this relationship with a visit to a local subak temple, a gathering place for farmers. We’ll walk from here into the expansive rice fields of Kerobokan, where we’ll begin our trek of about two to three kilometres (wear comfy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet!).

The local farmers here don’t just grow rice, but also tomatoes, beans, bananas, eggplant, chilies, corn, sugar cane, and water snails. The rice fields themselves are home to a number of aquatic species, including frogs, fish, crabs, and snails — it’s the perfect little ecosystem, and you’ll have a better understanding of how it all works together.

After our trek, we’ll be met by our driver, who will take us back to the starting point. Here, you’ll be able to change out of your trekking clothes and into something for wandering street stalls of Seminyak at night. There’s no rush, though, so take a break on our large deck and watch the sunset over the rice fields before we head out in our VW Kombi limo for our feast.

Our first stop will be a local roadside warung (café) famous for its babi guling (rotisserie-cooked suckling pig). Your guide will order for you a shared dish for two people and explain all that appears on the plate before you — which will have maybe five or six different elements. Don’t forget to buy some pork crackling!

From there, it’s back into the VW Kombi and we’ll head to the largest local Eat Street in Bali, tucked just behind Seminyak’s major tourist area and easy to get to — but oh-so local! We’ll start at the top of the street, where your expert guide will escort you through the numerous small warungs and stalls, picking out things for us to eat as we go.

We’ll walk from here down a dark street to the local taxi drivers’ favourite soup kitchen, a very simple cement-block building that is home to the yummiest soto ayam (chicken noodle soup) in the area. This is one of Indonesia’s most famous national dishes.

If you like spice (or think you do), then we can stop at a small place specialising in Japanese fusion, but with a chili challenge that goes up five levels to “inferno” with the world’s hottest chilies!

Or, if you need an energy boost after all that eating, how about an energy-filled dessert, Indonesian-style! We’ll head to a small warung that’s famous for its dessert made from a crumpet-style batter cooked in an earthenware pot over hot coals. Choose from the top 10 list or design your own; our favourite is chocolate, banana and cheese and it only costs about $1!

Your guide (now you best foodie friend on Bali) will assist you with finding a taxi for your trip back to your hotel (or to the next stop for your night out). And now that you have the keys to Bali’s local Eat Street, you can come back on your own to try even more local dishes.
