Not very Halal but oh so delicious, Naughty Nuri’s is always busy from the time they open until late at night. What’s all the fuzz about?

Ice cream & gelato for the family
Ice cream? Yes, ice cream! Why? Well, it’s simple – the best ice cream in Bali might just be found at Gusto Gelato on Jalan Mertanadi. People are lining up all day long to get their taste of the legendary flavours at Gusto Gelato. No additives, no artificial flavours, just amazing handmade ice cream you have only dreamt of up until now. Chocolate chilli, soursop, lemongrass – all made with local fresh ingredients – yum! Kids will also adore the ice lollies at Paletas Wey made with real fruit. Moms will love the fact that they are delicious and healthy. Just splendid! Everyone goes crazy for their Nutella banana, Moka and caramel but I love the mango strawberry one. So refreshing!
