So we’ve all heard it by now – Bali, the Island of the Gods, is a dream destination for all party animals. From rooftop parties to ice-cold beers on the beach, the gods on this island sure know how to throw a party. But as we all know, if done right, those long nights out on the town (or on the beach) can really take their toll on the best of us. Fear not: We’ve got you covered. We’ve listed the best hangover cures in southern Bali.
Cafe Bene Lane – Jl. Lebak Bene, Kuta
If you wanna go all out after a late night in Kuta and have big old breakfast with all the works, look no further than Cafe Bene Lane. A longtime favourite to visitors from far and wide, Cafe Bene Lane serves huge, tasty breakfasts with delightfully reasonable prices. And it doesn’t exactly hurt that the place is conveniently located just a hop and a skip away from the very bars where you most likely acquired the hangover in the first place.
Warung Kolega – Jalan Petitenget, Seminyak
When you’re feeling really hungry and are craving some local Indonesian food, you can’t go wrong with Kolega. Serving treats from the neighbouring island of Java, this warung lets diners pick, choose and point at the dishes they like in the extensive display – which makes it a terrific choice for those mornings when forming a single sentence feels like an insurmountable obstacle. You get to choose from a wide selection of shrimp, chicken and vegetables in various states of deep-fried deliciousness. The clientele at this no-nonsense establishment is a nice mix of locals and tourists.
Bali Buda – Jalan Banjar Anyar, Kerobokan
If you wanna eat something healthy instead of all those deep-fried delicacies, make Bali Buda your one-stop destination. But even if you’re not that into kale and wheatgrass, don’t be freaked out by all the vegan options on the menu. We’ll let you onto a little secret: this is a great place for impress-ing your girl. While your date goes nuts on all the smoothies and superfoods, you can pig out on a full breakfast. Trust us: they do serve pancakes, scrambled eggs and yes – even bacon.
Pit Stop – Jalan Uluwatu, Uluwatu
Finally, when you’re feeling a little worse for the wear, you just can’t go wrong with a good burger. And the burgers at Pit Stop are seriously good. Their lamb burger is a local legend that some are even calling “the best burger in Bali.” Pit Stop is open 24 hours a day, so you can grab a burger to cure your hangover as well as to satisfy your nighttime munchies. If you find yourself waking up a little further up north, Pit Stop also has an outlet in Seminyak.
