IN SEARCH OF THE BEST SUNDAY BRUNCH IN BALI
There are a million and one ways of spending a perfect weekend, and Sunday Brunch must be one of the best.
In Traditional households of the English speaking world, Sunday lunch has, for generations, always been the most important meal of the week. A time when the family would come together to enjoy a special meal, often a Sunday roast of beef, lamb or ham.
Our long term traditions become part of our soul and don’t die out easily and instead the Sunday Lunch has evolved to become Sunday Brunch. A more relaxed affair of a late breakfast that stretches into an extended lunch and may last several hours.
In Bali the demand for Sunday Brunch is stronger than ever. Across the island restaurants are not only offering special menus but also other activities to keep their guests entertained during brunch. We have been searching out the options and here are our top recommendations for Sunday Brunch in Bali.
