1. Zest Ubud
Sitting on top of a hill, the plant-based Zest Ubud is in a dream location, set within an elegant temple offering sprawling jungle views. The open-plan restaurant is breezy and relaxed, offering the ideal conditions to cool down from the sweltering sunshine.
While the menu is completely plant-based, even meat-lovers will be satisfied with the exhaustive breakfast menu. Exotic and healthy treats include spiced banana loaf, griddled pancakes heaped with mango, coconut, caramelized banana, chocolate sauce, and dragon fruit, and a rice black rice pudding topped with mango and shaved coconut. The latter is an Indonesian breakfast speciality, and every breakfast dish makes for a picture-perfect snap for Instagram.
As you tuck into your fluffy pancakes, it may be hard to believe that they’re vegan.
