7 Most Mouth-Watering Suckling Pigs in Bali


Matthew Sultan

Not a writer, just a story teller..

Balinese suckling pig is definitely one of the culinary trademarks in Bali, the island of Gods. This dish is always popular for both local and international tourists.

The aroma of its fat, sizzling together with multiple blend of aromatic spices never ceases to make one’s nostril tingling. It’s often served with the coconut-marinated veggies to provide balance between juiciness, crispness and savory.

This one is a must-have for every suckling pig lover. Located at Ubud, Ms. Oka’s suckling pig has gone as far to getting credit from Anthony Bourdain, an American based celebrity chef who’s responsible for the success of CNN’s Parts Unknown.

The combination this dish’s spices, fat and super-crispy skin is what makes this dish iconic, or even legendary! Never miss this one when you’re traveling to Bali.

In this venue, the side dishes are delivered separately, so your plates look neater and more organized (talking about OCD). That’s not all what this place offers though. Don’t be surprised at how fragrant the room will be when your suckling pig arrives, as they come with plethora of spices! The skin is also crispy and juicy. YUM!

How delicious this suckling pig is just simply.. unbelievable. Just imagining about this makes me starve! The pork is so juicy and the spices seep-deep in the pork’s texture, stimulating your sense of taste in every bite. Eating this dish with the accompanying sambal (chili sauce) brings a new dimension of flavor, and is definitely among the best in this list.

One of the most underestimated hidden gem in Bali. Not only it is good, it also comes in a humongous portion. Definitely one of the most generous (in terms of portion) suckling pig restaurant listed in this article.

Interior-wise, the venue is quite modest; nonetheless, they are champion when it comes to cooking suckling pig. While most suckling pig dishes would taste savory or spicy, this place is well known for their sweet & savory suckling pig. The dish itself costs around $3, which is totally worth all the penny you spend!

Don’t miss this place when you’re in Denpasar. Their suckling pig is just as good as the rest, but the difference is how they present the veggies in this dish.

While most venues deliver veggies as a garnish, Warung Sari Kembar introduces vegetables as a part of the main dish, complementing the suckling pig really, really well. Definitely worth a visit when you’re in town.
