Our Food Philosophy at The Palm Tree House | Your Boutique Bali Retreat
“The best way to experience a culture, is to taste it.”
During your stay at The Palm Tree House you will have the chance to enjoy some delicious meals. We make all meals from scratch right here on site in our kitchen. Our great team of chefs and cooks go to great lengths to ensure that every meal is both healthy, and also a delight for the tastebuds!
We go to great lengths to source the best quality ingredients, utilising fresh organic produce wherever possible. We also source from local Bali providers and our fruit and vegetables come from the beautiful lush mountain town of Bedugal.
For breakfast we offer a delicious morning spread with fresh tropical fruit, Balinese style fruit pancakes, fresh local sourdough and gluten-free toast and spreads, natural and gluten free muesli, as well as freshly cooked eggs to order. Special breakfast options rotate daily and may include Coconut Mango Chia Seed Pudding, Black Rice and Coconut Pudding, Zucchini Fritters with Feta, or Dragonfruit Smoothie Bowls!
Lunch and Dinner options feature a mix of Balinese favourites such as Mie Goreng, Gado Gado, Vegetable Pad Thai, Asian- Style Soups, and also delicious fresh seafood options such as Snapper with Avocado Salsa and Pineapple Rice Boats with fresh prawns. Balinese style sambals and sauces are served alongside the main dishes for those who like a little extra heat and spice!
The Asian-style dishes are served with fresh healthy salads and western favourites such as Jackfruit Tacos, Buddha Salad Bowls, Corn Fritters with Avocado Salsa, Fresh Nori Bowls and Quinoa Salads.
We cater to all dietary requirements on retreat- whether it be vegan, paleo, vegetarian, pescetarian, dairy-free, grain-free, low-fructose, FODMAP or any other particularities. Our kitchen team are well-versed and experienced in adapting meals to suit guests needs and preferences. We believe no one should miss out when it comes to delicious meals! Rest assured you will be well looked after on your Palm Tree House retreat.
Our food philosophy is that mealtime should be a time for celebration. Dishes are both healthy and vibrant, as well as flavoursome and substantial. We like meal times to feel abundant, so while some options are plated up, other meals are served buffet style so you can pick and choose as you please. Freshly homemade snacks are served every afternoon, and cold coconuts are served with breakfast and lunch, as well as free-flowing Balinese coffee and a selection of tea. If guests would like to keep their own snacks or drinks, we happily will keep them in the kitchen as desired.
Several meals are also left open for guests to experience the wonderful local food scene that Canggu is known and loved for. Options include everything from simple local Balinese cuisine, to world-renowned Italian, Mexican, Japanese or French restaurants. Canggu is also known for its abundance of healthy cafes that feature extensive vegetarian, vegan, paleo and gluten-free menus. Our team are happy to make suggestions and there are plenty of places you can enjoy all within walking distance.
