Food Markets in Indonesia: Mouth Watering Photos

Vibrant Photography from Night Markets in Indonesia

Smells and sounds ignite your senses and the sight of all the different types of foods within arms reach creates excitement. The thick air hangs while people bustle about, the atmosphere rich and vibrant. Street food markets are my favourite way to experience the local food culture in Asia. Filled with tasty authentic food and the best bit; they’re dirt cheap! Here are some of my favourite photos from the food markets in Indonesia. 

Gili Trawangan Night Market

Seafood alert! The night market on Gili Trawangan is the most buzzing “restaurant” you’ll find. With fresh seafood and buffet upon buffet of extras like stir-fried vegetables, Nasi Goreg and sweet pancakes. This is the cheapest place to eat on the small island, so it’s packed full of backpackers and locals alike. For the freshest pick of seafood – come early in the night!

Ubud Night Market

Locals only; you’ll be hard pressed to find many foreigners at Ubud night market and that’s why I liked it so much! It was really cheap and really authentic. It’s easily one of the best Balinese food markets you’ll find. And the Ubud night market had the biggest array of delicious pork dishes I have ever seen. My mouth was watering at every turn, the delicious smells only heightening the senses more.
