While visiting Ubud, we had the good fortune of staying at two guesthouses on Jalan Sugriwa, which turned out to have three restaurants offering numerous vegan options. Just out of arm’s reach of Ubud’s big touristy streets, it is the perfect location to visit Monkey Forest and take in a performance at one of Ubud’s several venues, while still being able to retire in the evenings to a quieter area of town with a nice selection of vegan dishes.
After spending a total of 10 days in Ubud, we visited several eating establishments and frequented our favorites. Here are our three most recommended restaurants on Jl. Sugriwa with the best vegan options:
Consistently ranked highly on TripAdvisor, Warung Sopa was our top choice for lunch. The nasi campur, a traditional Indonesia meal similar to that of Spanish tapas, offers a wide variety of point-and-choose dishes.
For dinner, we couldn’t stop ourselves from returning to Dayu’s Warung each evening to try more of their menu. Although they aren’t even a vegetarian restaurant, the vast array of delicious vegan options made our mouths water.
Pisang Manis, literally translates to “sweet banana”, and although they offer a small selection of vegetarian and vegan meals, their specialty is definitely dessert. Our favorite is their banana in sweetened mung bean flour, steamed in a banana leaf.
Ubud is known for their population of health-minded, yoga-inspired expats. Therefore, we discovered that most restaurants offer vegan options, which was wonderful for us. We were just so happy to find such amazing food on Jl. Sugriwa, that investigating other places wasn’t too high on our list.
