This island hosts a large number of Chinese restaurants serving authentic Chinese food. From varieties of noodles, rice and mouth-watering appetisers, Bali offers enough Chinese food to satiate any food pallet. As a great fan of Chinese food, I always remain open to visit such places where I can get delicious Chinese cuisines. Not only it satisfies my hunger, but it makes my taste buds dance with the flavours.
Some of the Chinese restaurants in Bali are very aesthetically built, reminding you of Shanghai cities or reconstructed ancient Chinese temples. From the legendary Pecking Duck and lobster dishes to mouth-watering prawn dumplings and phenomenal crab, let me take you to a quick journey to Hong Kong while feasting on Chinese cuisines.
This is a pleasant family-style Chinese eatery enlivened by a mix of conventional Chinese tradition with a hip, having a modern influence. Happy Chappy’s offbeat interpretation of upscale Chinese dining is tempered by one of the finest, best in class kitchens serving the most delightful customary Cantonese-style Chinese cuisines in Bali. Dinner at Happy Chappy is a whole ordeal that begins the moment you stroll through its delightful Chinese entryways and voila! You’re in 1930’s Hong Kong. From its wooden completing, red lights, Chinese adornments and sketches to the huge statue of the glad Buddha in the hall; everything cooperates to give you that one immaculate eating background. happychappychinese.com
Warung Laota Kuta
This is one of the local favourites of all times. Famed among foodies for midnight late supper, this 24-hour eatery seems like never running low of visitors. The décor is inspired by a simple Chinese restaurant with wood tables and chairs next to a live-open kitchen. Although they are specialised in delivering fresh seafood, the hot seller would be Rainbow Porridge – a mixture of chicken, meat and seafood. A bowl of porridge can be shared up to four people. I recommend to pair it with the famous Chinese snack, ‘Cakwe’. The taste will blend perfectly! warunglaota.com
