As some of you might know, that I just came back from Bali and ask me where is the best place to eat. Along the way I have compile quite a substantial list of it and here you go for Best 8 Babi Guling in Bali, 2018 according to the locals I met and drove me around.

This round I only manage to try once which is in my list is to hit on 2 of it. Unfortunately I woke up late and miss out the best babi guling in Bali according to my friend and also local driver.

my 5 days 4 nights Bali Itinerary 

No. 1

Warung Babi Guling Bu Ngurah Mambal (Mambal Market)
Located by the Mambal traditional market. if you want your breakfast for Babi Guling, this rated top at the moment as the owner uses wood fire to cook it, hence the flavor will be unique. A small warung in the market area. Be prepare to queue and with the locals. Average finish about 10.30am. (this is the place where i miss it)

Warung Nasi Babi Guling iBu Moris
Read over an article as this attracted me that this Balinese warung made it onto the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list of 2017 from Eelke Plasmeijer, owner of Locavore list that their flavour is still very much localise. Pungent in taste and spices.

Babi Guling Sanur
Second choice in the area is at Sanur Denpasar area, that operate a run down area but serve classic food. Have not tried but many recommending this place. Be early to enjoy the first batch of pippin hot suckling pig. As if it hit much later in the noon, it is not that fresh anymore. Recommending to go before 2pm.

Warung Tegas
I read that why this warung is commented by many because of its cheap pricing and offering authentic Balinese mix rice. Babi guling is their main signature however pork meat is one of their highlight. For a simple meal of 2 you can get around 19,000 rupiah which is very cheap.

Babi Guling Gung Cung

One of the alternative if you do not prefer Ibu Oka as they are just about 500meters away from Ibu Oka. A place which is well known among locals that buy off to share with families,colleagues and friends. Locals here buy it in stacks as you can see stacks of babi guling stack ontop of each other.

This is by far stayed below my list as I felt that it is not good on my first experience and also Ibu Oka is very commercialize. (this is base on my taste bud and preference)
