THE BEST BURGERS IN BALI: SEMINYAK
Grill’d from Australia has arrived in Bali, and after being closed during COVID, I can happily tell you that it’s now open and pumping for business. If you are an Aussie and have tried Grill’d back home, you’ll know the burgers are scrumptious, and what’s as good is the super-central location in Seminyak, next to Seminyak Village. Everything made here at Grill’d is freshly produced and sourced locally, so you know it’s as fresh as possible. And all the chips and sides are cooked on-site and served piping hot, along with a few cold Bintangs. Ah….this is what being on holiday is all about, so make sure you also bring the kids. Definitely go for the crispy bacon & cheeseburger; for the game, try the chilli addicts burger with jalapenos. Grill hasn’t forgotten about the vegans with their Beyond Burgers, all plant-based and free from GMOs, soy and gluten. Yup, if you have a family member or mate that’s a vegan, they can also come along for a brilliant feed!! With an extensive menu of sliders, burgers, chips, salads, beers, wines and cocktails, Grill’d is one of the best burger joints in Seminyak, Bali, for those wanting casual dining without the frills or price tag – it’s just good old fashioned fun and burgers.

2. BO$$ MAN – Seminyak
In a super-central Seminyak locale, BossMan is an icon and one of the most popular burger restaurants. If you are up for a serious feed (post gym, surf, keep the kids happy or have a hangover), BossMan delivers the goods and on steroids. So be prepared for a colossal burger feast with lashings of extras. If you’re a burger connoisseur, you’ll love the world-class ingredients – think 60-day dry-aged chuck steaks and juicy, absolutely delish, tender pork cooked low and slow over 18 hours. The vibe is young, energetic, and fun, and the waiters are all decked out in gold – a great place to take the kids, especially if you are in a nearby Seminyak villa. We love the Al Capone (Texas-style huge burger), the El Chapo (obviously Mexican), and yessss there’s a burger for the vegans called the Gandhi, which is Indian style….mmmm, super -yummy!

Their amazing burgers broke the mould with all those juicy toppings and Aussie Wagyu Beef oozing with melted cheese and salads.

Why not the buffalo chicken wings to start the day, followed by the out n in a burger with the Aussie wagyu beef, then finish with the famous Le Big Mac with 2 beef patties and lashings of onions and pickles? And, if you still have some room ( if you’re with the kids, I’m sure they’ll still be hungry), order sides of Chick Norris ( beer battered fries) and the salsa chip n dip.

1. BB52 Burgers in Canggu
Can you imagine a gin bar and a burger place rolled into one? Then, the team at BB52 have done just that; created an inviting chilled-out bar scene with the most scrumptious burgers you’ll get in Berawa/Canggu. Typical of Canggu, it’s now an Instaworthy burger place with ex-pats, Russian Instagram models, surfers and local Indonesian folk rocking up here for good times and burgers and fries. BB52 has all the bases covered with their meat and vegan burgers with sticky finger-licking sauces and an array of sides like vegan dirty fries, mac n cheese and wet corn with coconut cream cheese. For the size and taste of the burgers, BB52 is a terrific value, and you can get away with a $10-$15 per person – try getting that back home!!! For the sheer cool factor, having a dinner drink with your burger (before a night out on the town), BB52 is a must-visit.

Just off Jalan Batu Bolong (the heart of Canggu’s fun area), The Shady Shack also serves burgers but not the meat kind you’d expect. These vegan burgers will excite those hungry carnivores with their delicious array of vegan burgers. These burgers are jam-packed with all the extras people love in a burger, like humus, big chunks of halloumi, delicious roasted peppers, onions and even jackfruit. I love the vegan cheeseburger!!

Sanburg is in the Batu Mejan area (Canggu’s super hip road) and is a quick get off your scooter, pull in, a grab a juicy sandwich or burger. We are talking fresh ingredients with oh-so-large portions, and it’s also very budget friendly for those digital nomads of families with hordes of kids to feed. You can choose from six burgers and seven types of sandwiches, enough variety to keep everyone smiling. At Sanburg, they are unafraid to pile on the extra gooey cheese and stuff the burgers with lots of goodies, including their famous in-house sauce. And as you’d expect, because it’s hip, Canggu they have caved into the vegan demands and have created the Barbie Pulled P*rk that features tender and juicy slow-cooked fake pulled pork. There are even deep-fried mushrooms and a vegan ‘chicken’ pattie. We love the Beesechurger with the beef patty, tasty red cheddar and, yes, the extra BBQ sauce.

Because it’s in the Batu Mejan area, it’s the perfect stop off after a day at Echo Beach before heading back to the villa or hotel. You’ll have to keep your eyes open as it’s a small restaurant but well worth it once you’ve had your first yummy bite.

Sit on the bar stools and watch all the crazy action of Canggu unfold in front of you as you munch your way through all these fab burgers. An excellent point to note is you can easily upsize your burger by getting an extra patty for something like $3 – fantastic value.
