Kuta Lombok is a fun and friendly beach area where you can surf and wave watch, explore by bike, and enjoy the laid back vibes of the locals. It’s the type of place that gives you the best kind of adventure and leaves you with the feeling of repletion, and since we basically sampled almost everything on this side of Lombok (link coming soon for Senggigi area!), we really want to let you in on all of our favorite places to eat.   Take it from us… this is where you need to go!

*Hot-tip  A warning ahead of time - if you’re a Westerner and like spicy food, make sure they KNOW! (other wise they’ll assume you don’t want it majority of the time)

KENZA

Jl. Raya Kuta No.5

Breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days

This place was easily our favorite place to eat in LombokThe staff is incredible, always greeting you, making sure you’re comfortable, and are super friendly.  The food is the healthiest you can probably find in the area making it appealing to the younger crowd…or well every crowd nowadays (go plant-based!) You can always meet new people here while getting your daily dose of deliciously caffeinated beverages and traditional beef rendang-which we highly recommend! The smoothies are packed with flavor and goodness, and the dips…OOOO you must try the dips! There are so many vegan options this place is hard to pass up.

GULAS GARDEN

Nusa Tenggara Timur 83573

Lunch and dinner 7 days

Not only is the seating spectacular with little canopies and cushions as a choice (helps when it rains!), but this place also had the best Mie Goreng in town!  Ask for it spicy if you can handle it, and we promise you will be NOT be disappointed.  Their chicken curry is also fantastic, and on top of that, the hospitality makes you want to come back more and more. 

EL BAZAR

Jl. Raya Kuta No.5

Breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days

El Bazar is like Kenza’s older sister.  Though thought of as a cheap eat in the area on Tripadvisor, it is definitely not… although at a moderate price, the food is absolutely delicious as they serve up fresh, healthy, and very clean Mediterranean food.  If your frightened to try the salads in S-E Asia (which is understandable), but would like to still eat healthy this place is for you.  Try the mezze and falafel platters!

WARUNG LALAPAN SANTAI

Jl. Raya Kuta

Lunch and dinner 7 days

This place has the best pricing for authentic Sasak Indonesian food.  The Chicken Taliwang is absolutely amazing, along with the handmade spring rolls.  We ate here quite a bit for anything traditional we had a craving for since the portion sizes are great, price is right, the lady that’s always there has the biggest smile on, and of course their delicious food!

WARUNG DRIFTERS

Jl. Pariwisata Pantai

Breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days

Wow! This place has some great burgers…actually, pretty much only burgers!  Shout out to you meat lovers - this spot is definitely for you.  But if you’re not feeling their free-range beef, try their falafel wrap – soft and full of flavor!

MILK ESPRESSO CAFÉ

Jl. Raya Kuta

Breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days

This place was a bit more expensive on the strip for smaller portion sizes, but it was really good!  They have fantastic Buddha bowls as well as a variety of Italian dishes to go right along with them, so most people can find something they personally enjoy.  Their surf-themed ambiance is great, with live music on most nights and awesome hospitality!

BURGER ZONE

Jl. Pariwisata Pantai

Lunch and dinner 7 days

This is another good burger joint - but we preferred Warung Drifters.  We ended up here right after we landed from Malaysia so in other words... it had a lot to live up to because in the food world, Malaysia = heaven ♡.It’s ranked quite high out of the places to eat around here and we can see why with vegetarian options too! Do get there before 9:00 pm on any night, or you may be denied entry!

FRIDAS BURRITO

Jl. Raya Kuta

Lunch and dinner 7 days

Ok this place has mixed reviews online, but we’re daring and we take one for the team.  We went back one more time because the chimichangas were something out of this world!  When we met, we took off to Mexico and tried all the street food we could get our hands on and these did not let us down. Order the guac and some spicy sauce on the side if you can handle it!

ON THE BEACH

This is not an actual place, but a great place to eat amazing cheap food is on whatever beach your on for the day!  Just make sure everything looks clean and that you’re not picking the most daring choice on your trip, like the poisonous part of the blowfish or something of that nature!  We have had some of our best meals just sitting on the beach enjoying lunch for the day, and in Indo you can really find an array of vegan and vegetarian dishes such as mie and nasi goreng super easily. Pair your dish with a fresh coconut - and your livin’ the dream!
