Made’s Banana Flour Bakery
It began with a friendship struck on the beach; it became a bakery that gluten free advocates mark as their go-to in Bali. Such is the demand for the bountiful, healthy alternative to flour that the bakery now plans to expand across Bali before taking on Indonesia and then the world. The brainchild of Balinese Made, a baker, and Michael, a former property agent living in Bali, this is one of only two commercial banana flour factories in the world. Baking with this flour isn’t easy but if these guys have their way, farmers across Bali will be reaping the benefits of planting banana trees, because it seems we can’t get enough of it. Originally in Canggu, the bakeries, which now offer sweet and savoury pastries, as well as their famous banana bread, are opening cafes in Petitenget, Ubud and well… everywhere in between. Highly recommended are their rendang pasties and their fruit tarts.

Wah has seen the light. The food crazy entrepreneur, who set up the boutique Wah Burgers on Kayu Aya Road and introduced the gourmet wagyu burger to those who love to push the culinary envelope, has introduced his new menu, with some luscious possibilities for both the gluten intolerant and vegans. In fact his latest burger, the One and Only is built on a gluten free bun with a patty based on a secret Buddhist monk’s vegan recipe with a corn fritter, vegan aioli and loaded with Asian-style salad. Go for it with options including white truffle porcini compote on top. A vegan bahn mie comes with a gluten free baguette and don’t for one minute imagine this will be less than spectacular. Protein lovers will be happier knowing that the gluten free buns can also wrap around his signature meat patties as well. Wah is also importing high quality gluten free pasta from Italy, which he says tastes better than traditional spaghetti. Made with corn and quinoa, sauces range from vegan to incredible. Grab your vegan mates, as he is catering to this growing market as well. Stay tuned for his first vegan and GF menu, including delicious vegan ice cream, which is something we can all enjoy.
