Solide vegane/vegetarische Küche - Edit

Während meines 2-tägigen Aufenthalts in Lovina habe ich ausschließlich im Akar Café gegessen (außer Frühstück), weil ich einfach keine Lust hatte, nach anderen veganen Alternativen zu suchen.
Das Café liegt absolut zentral, die Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich.
Das Akar Café bietet solide vegane und vegetarische Gerichte an, von Nudeln über Falafel bis hin zu Currys. Vegane Gerichte sind gekennzeichnet. Es gibt auch vegane Crepes. Das Eis ist leider nicht vegan.
Ich habe mich also einmal quer durch das vegane Angebot gegessen und alles war ziemlich lecker.
Die Kritik an den Preisen kann ich nicht verstehen - Hauptgerichte liegen zwischen ca. 3 und 5 Euro - das ist zwar teuer als im lokalen Warung, aber das sind bei weitem keine europäischen Preise. Ich fand das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis angemessen.
Man sitzt übrigens im hinteren Teil des Cafés mit Blick auf einen Bach besser als vorne direkt an der Straße.

Pros: Leckeres Essen, Zentrale Lage, Nettes Personal

Cons: -

One of my favourite cafes in Bali! - Edit

Akar, meaning "roots" in Indonesian, was one of the best cafes I visited during my stay in Bali. Located on the main tourist strip close to the beach, it was great to have lunch here. I ordered the Indian chickpea, aubergine and spinach curry which came with red rice, chutney and a samosa, as well as a smoothies, and then followed by a vegan chocolate banana crepe (amazing!!!). We came back for dinner and we had the chilli tomato spaghetti, and the Balinese red cashew fried rice, and a soy iced chai. Seriously, if you are in Lovina, you must come here!!

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly service, Labels vegan

must check it out - Edit

Amazing place, lovely atmosphere! The staff is incredibly friendly and it's a nice quite place to be. You can sit in the back next to a little river. The food is also really good, all fresh and extremely tasty! It's not cheap compared to the local prices but it's not expensive either. I'm definitly comming back!

good food, very expensive!!!! - Edit

The food is good. The portion is small and the price is high. It's even more expensive than some veggie restaurants in Ubud. A small salad costs 45.000 and soy latte costs 35.000 rupiah. This is Indonesia, not Europe!! I would come here everyday, maybe twice a day if the price was realistic, or at least if the portion was double of what is served.

Pros: healthy , tasty, vegan options

Cons: small portion, expensive , no vegan ice cream option

Go here! - Edit

This place is awesome! The Dahl was awesome and the middle eastern plate was too (except for the weird 3 bean salad on it). We went to a few other local restaurants before checking HappyCow and they were all mediocre and not exciting. Be sure to sit in the back by the stream, it's nice! They even have Vegan and Vegetarian in the backs of their shirts!!! :)

Great food - Edit

Not cheap, mains are around 50k where as I paid around 30k in most other places round about. But the food is probably the best I've had in bali. Staff are really on the ball with dietary requirements and the menu is well labelled for what's vegan. Not much in the way of atmosphere but pleasant enough.

Few good items, but overall expensive - Edit

One of the more expensive meals we had in Bali-dinner for 2 without eating too much came to almost 200K Rp.

Recommended for vegans: vegan crepes

Falafels are ok but not your typical Middle Eastern falafel.

similarly, samosa is not your typical Indian samosa (more like a phyllo dough fried pastry stuffed with daal and mashed up potatoes)

Vegan mango ice cream is tasty.

Pros: mango ice cream

Cons: too expensive
