12 Babhla Bricfeásta na mBeatha i mBali – The 12 Breakfast Bowls of Bali

*LEAGAN BÉARLA FAOI – ENGLISH VERSION BENEATH*

 

12 Babhlá Bricfeásta na mBeatha i mBali

 

Cé go mbeadh a ndotháin tithe tábháirne agus bialanna thart timpeall na n-áiteanna is mó i mBali le ’12 Tithe Tábháirne na Nollag’ a chríochniú go héasca agus cáil speisialta na nÉireannach a bheith ‘in ann ól’ a comhlíonadh go héifeachtach, i mbliana is i dtreo eile agus níos soiléire uilig atá mo shúile caite seachas ag dreamanna i ngeansaithe bailithe taobh amuigh na tithe tábháirne nach ligeann isteach iad a thuilleadh. Is cuid ríthábhachtach don lá i mBali é an bricfeasta, ar a ndéantar an iomarca neamhaird agus a chuireann sceitimíní orm fiú ag smaoineamh ar an oiread féidireachtaí, roghanna, agus áiteanna atá fós ann le thriail agam.
Is maith liom fhéin ag éirí go moch ar aon chaoi, leite agus torthaí úir an lae caite ar bun, ach níor smaoinigh mé riamh go mbeadh an méid seo féidirtheachtaí bricféasta timpeall orm anois, ag tógáil an béile is fearr go céim níos airde ná mar a bhí sé ariamh.

Cé nach bhfuil ’12 pubs’ críocnaithe agam i gceart riamh, ná coincheap an rud é féin mínithe go cuí go daoine áitiúla anseo nach bhfuil an dearcadh céanna acu nuair a thagann sé don alcóil in aon chor, tá beartaithe agam i mbliana an dúshlán seo a ghlacadh agus turas a dhéanamh timpeall ar na háiteanna is fearr Babhla Bricféasta a fháil i mBali, seachas pionta Bintang.

Is ag breathnú ar an méid caifé, bialanna agus áiteanna sláintiúla agus orgánacha ar fud na háite atá an cinne déanta agam an liosta seo a chuir le chéile de roghanna torthaí, cnónna, agus cómhabhair úra eile atá feicthe agam go dtí seo. ‘Séard is ‘Babhla Bhricféasta’ ann sa chás seo ná babhla déanta de cnónna cócó agus líonta le meascáin éagsúla de thorthaí, cnónna, sú, granola, coirce, íogurt nádúrtha, síolta, bainne agus im almóinne, spionáiste, rísín, meascanna sú ….leanann an liosta ar aghaidh.

Cé go dtuigim nach bhfuil agam anseo ach tús agus go bhfuil fós neart babhlaí Bali agus roghanna eile le triail agam go fóill (tá súil agam!), i mbliana tháinig mo chomháireamh síos don Nollaig fhéin i bhfoirm na babhlaí galánta, sláintiúla seo a leanas….(gan aon ord áirithe).

-BÉARLA – ENGLISH –

12 Breakfast Bowls of Bali

 

Although there would be more than enough public houses and restaurants with bars around the main areas of Bali to allow for a kind of makeshift ’12 pubs’ and drunken fulfillment of the Irish reputation for being fond of alcohol, this year my gaze has been less-hazily drawn towards the woolly-jumper clad throngs of merry-makers congregated expectantly outside the various pubs that no longer let them in, but towards something else entirely. It’s the one part of any day in Bali that gets massively overlooked and deserves a whole lot more attention, purely because the breadth of possibilities and flavours it encapsulates is so vast I get excited just thinking about the options and places I’ve yet to try and discover.

I’m an early-riser anyway, and it’s no secret how fond I am of my porridge, but the expanse of healthy and delicious breakfast-food options available in Bali has taken things to another level entirely.

Aside from the fact that I’ve never actually successfully completed a real 12 pubs let alone attempted explaining the concept of it to a Balinese locaility where a Bintang with dinner is considered a luxury, I’ve decided this year to take my proximity to all of these delicious menus to my advantage. The sheer amount of health-food cafés and restaurants along almost every street boasting organic and fresh ingredients and original recipies with bowls of fruity, nutty, and tasty goodness have led me to compile this list of 12 of the most impressive and delicious “Breakfast Bowls” I’ve encountered thus far – ‘Breakfast Bowl’ in this sense being used to describe the coconut-bowl-servings available in nearly all of these establishments of varying mixes of fresh fruits, granola, nuts, berries, seeds, muesli, oats, yoghurt, nut butters, chia and acai blends, coconut milk, water and juice mixes and spinach infused with yet more fresh fruit on top….the list of deliciousness goes on.

 While I’m aware I’ve probably only barely touched the tip of the mint and lime-infused iceberg of breakfast bliss, and that there are still (hopefully) many many mornings I’ve yet to wake up to these bowls of happiness, my festive countdown this year has come in the form of these brightly coloured and elaborately decorated bowls of fruit and health foods, as follows (in no particular order)…

  12. Nagu Bomb – Betelnut Café, Canggu

Dragon fruit, mixed berries, coconut milk, granola, strawberries, banana, grated coconut
You only have to glance at the menu in Betelnut Café, Canggu to understand the hype and reputation it has built up for itself among tourists and locals alike!

11. Shelter Super Crumble with Organic Chia Seeds – Shelter Café, Seminyak

-coconut, chia seeds, banana, oats, strawberries, granola, nuts, vanilla yoghurt, stewed apple, and almond butter
Shelter Café is a hidden gem situated on a rooftop above the Seminyak branch of Nalu Bowls, looking out over a local football pitch and catering to every kind of palate imaginable when it comes to breakfast!

11. The ‘Teahupp’O’ – Nalu Bowls, Canggu, Seminyak, Uluwatu

-spinach, green apple, granola, chia seeds, ginger, orange, pineapple, mango, banana, mixed berries, almonds, coconut water, coconut milk
The first stop on the list of Nalu Bowls, and my favourite until now! Nalu Bowls currently have 3 locations around Bali and again it’s worth the searching for this small, bright counter – everything healthy, organic, and put together right in front of your face!

9. Raw Vegan Grain-free Porridge Bowl- Atman’s Kafe, Ubud

-coconut, flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts, almonds, pumkin seeds, dried fruits, raisins, bananas, palm sugar, coconut water
Easily my favourite bowl on the list! I returned to Atman’s Kafe a few days in a row but wasn’t able to make myself order anything else! Perfect hearty fuel to get you through a power yoga class at the Yogabarn!

8. ‘The Breakfast Bomb’- Crate Café, Canggu

– Banana, almond milk, muesli, cashew nuts, strawberries, extra banana and dragon fruit on top!
You will feel cool and like part of the gang just sitting at this café. Trust me. Endless breakfast options, all written on the wall in permanent marker because, yknow, that’s hip and stuff…

7. ‘The Hulk’- Eden Café, Canggu

– spinach, cashew milk, banana, avocado, green apple, bee pollen, granola, strawberries
Easily the most affordable option on this list, Eden Café is an extremely friendly and health-orientated little place, every option packed to the brim with nutrients and hidden healthy boosters.

6. Chia and Mixed Berry Bowl – Avocado Café, Canggu

– chia seeds, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, banana, cashew milk, strawberries, muesli, coconut, coconut milk
Another to add to the list of amazing Canggu cafés is Avocado Café. I especially liked the decor in this place and it was really usefully situated right at the top of my road!

5. ‘Super Tropical Bowl’- Garden Kafé,  The Yogabarn, Ubud

– seasonal fresh fruit with lime, raw muesli and live probiotic yoghurt
The Yogabarn’s very own café is an amazing place to refuel after a tough Power or Bikram yoga session, and with wholesome, organic and freshly prepared juices, you’ve no excuse not to pack the fruit and veg along with your yoga mat.1931892_10153243943753483_1150289886_n

 

 

4. ‘Uluwatu’ – Nalu Bowls, Canggu/Seminyak/Uluwatu

dragon fruit, banana, papaya, coconut milk or apple juice, strawberries, coconut, raspberries, granola
Back to Nalu bowls again for this one, the ‘Uluwatu’! You can’t see it in this picture underneath all the extra granola but the smoothie blend is a deep beautiful shade of purple from the dragon fruit…unbelievable!

3. Vanilla Almond Quinoa Porridge – Shelter Café, Seminyak

– Organic quinoa, vanilla, coconut milk, cinnamon, banana, berries, mixed nuts, almond butter, fresh almond milk
This was just as delicious as it sounds. Absolutely every ingredient alone is mouth-wateringly tasty and so combined it made for pure porridge heaven. I’d absolutely love if the Builín Blásta started doing dishes like this….

12388131_10153244054033483_1439816911_nSite/Facebook/TripAdvisor

 

 

2. ‘Tropical Bowl’- Betelnut Café, Canggu

-dragon fruit, cashew milk, pineapple, watermelon, mango, grated coconut, chia seeds, granola, cashew butter, coconut water
Betelnut delivers yet again with another bowl of deliciousness, the addition of cashew milk to this one and a heap more fruit on top making it almost preferable to the famous Nagu Bomb Betelnut has become famous for. Almost.

1. ‘Maverick’s’ – Nalu Bowls, Canggu/Seminyak/Uluwatu

-acai blend, mixed berries, mango, banana, almond milk, chia seeds, strawberries, coconut water, shredded coconut meat, granola
Our last stop is back in Nalu Bowls again, for a taste of their own special secret acai blend. I’m still not entirely sure what exactly it contains but it’s purple, super tasty and incredibly healthy!
