B A L I… Top Secrets!

Heading to Bali?? After 20 years of travelling there and well over 100 trips, Bali is home away from home for me. So here’s some AndAndrea Foodie, Fashion, Homewares, Spa Bali Secrets!! Sshhhh dont tell anyone ?

FOOD… Everyone knows the famous & fabbb Bali eating houses… Petitenget, Sarong, Metis, Sardine, Barbacoa, Potato Head, KuDeTa, MamaSan & MerahPutih!! They are all top class, superb and definitely well worth a visit. However they are pricey!! If you are looking for middle of the road, scrummy, affordable everyday Cafes & Warungs, then here’s the AA List for you!! In Seminyak & Legian do try Wild1, Kreol Kitchen, Watercress, Earth Cafe, Zuiiton, Revolver, Corner House, Sea Circus, Laca Laca Mexi, Tiger Palm, Queens Tandoor, Warung Asia, Happy Chappy, Biku, Saigon Street, Rayjin, Cafe Organic, Nook, Kzu, Shelter and Blue Ocean. Phew!! Having eaten at every single one of these I can highly recommend them all!!Laca Laca on Jalan Drupadi… Fun!!

In Canggu try Old Mans, Betelnut, Crate, The Shady Shack and Bungalow Living Cafe for yummy toasties, cakes & juices. The Shady Shack is awesome!!!??

FASHION: Its very hit and miss for fashion in Bali!! Beads and Sarongs are still good on the Beach…and do Barter!! The new Mall in Seminyak Square is swisho, has a good mix and is worth a look. Its very modern & full of Designer and Handmade pieces. Theres an Emporium at the back, so have a fossick around!! Also, out on the streets try… Frock, Why Not, Biasa, From, Mister Zimi, Vintage Century, State of Georgia, Shakuhachi & Prisoners of St Petersburg. Just wander along Jalan Legian & Jalan Seminyak and shop hop until you strike gold.Jalan Double Six is wholesale street and also has some good finds. Look out for lovely dresses at Saldo and Magali Pascal ( below)If you cant find what you want fashionwise then get it made!! Fabrics at Wiras and Alta Moda in Kuta are incredible. They have their own good Tailors.

MARKETS: The Night markets on Jalan Marlboro near Kerobokan Prison are dusty but neat, tidy & full of second hand clothing (below)Night Markets are where the Locals Shop!! You need to be a keen Op Shopper to head here!!

Love Anchor Bazaar is every Sunday in Canggu!! Full of cool young designers. A must!!

HOMEWARES: are superb in Bali and everywhere!! Two faves are KimSooHome in Seminyak and Bungalow Living in Canggu (below)

If its a superb Spa Treatment pamper you are after, then its hard to go past Chill, Jari Menari or Prana below!! Spring Spa upstairs at Seminyak Village is also well worth a Mani, Pedi or Facial visit!!

Bali in a nutshell… FABULOUS!! aa xx
