Since your belly doesn’t wear the watch and doesn’t have the calendar, it knows nothing about time. So it is natural that it can get hungry anytime, including at midnight. In most of the other regions, perhaps it is gonna be hard to find a place to eat in the middle of the night. But in Bali, it is no problem at all. There are a lot of places where you can soothe your belly during the night, such as these five culinary spots:
Babi Guling Slingsing Bu Suci
The only flaw of Babi Guling Slingsing Bu Suci is its location. It is situated in Tabanan (Jalan Cempaka No. 901), quite far from the tourist scenes of South Bali. But the distance you have to cover is nothing compared to the taste you will experience. The rumour has it that so far it is the best babi guling on the island. The flavour is so authentic that after having a bite of this babi guling you are going to be overwhelmed with joy. It opens from the dusk till after midnight.
Babi Guling Jero Kawan
If the problem of getting to Babi Guling Slingsing is the distance, that of Jero Kawan is the traffic. Sometimes, on the way to Babi Guling Jero Kawan, you will encounter heavy traffic. (Usually a couple of hours before the dusk.) But if you go there around midnight you will not have too many competitions. Open from 4 pm to the early am, it is quite popular among the locals and often packed during dinner time. Babi Guling Jero Kawan is located on Jalan Raya Munggu No. 6, Mengwi.
Warung Men Rembang

Warung Lawar Kodi
