Gili Trawangan vegan and gluten free options really surprised me! I found two great options which was plenty for the four days that I spent there.
THE YOGA PLACE
My first and favorite place on the Gili Trawangan vegan and gluten free list is The Yoga Place! After trying this gem for the first time, i enjoyed most of my meals here. The chia dream jar is out of this world delicious! The mains that they offer are also super yummy and the menu is clearly marked! Also another rarity is how big their juices and smoothies are! If you visit Gili Trawangan you have to check this place out!!
Vegan and gluten free pad thai!! While Kayu cafe has a few gluten free options, I wasn’t overwhelmed by their choices. One morning I enjoyed a smoothie bowl here and asked them for no granola and just brought my own. If you’re vegan also make sure you ask specifically for vegan options and ask for no honey. While the smoothie bowl was alright (I think the fact that it’s right on the beach made it better), the vegan and gluten free pad thai was my favorite!
The coffee can also be made with milk substitutes! And if you pre arrange your visit, the owner can make sure that they have gluten free bread for you.
TIP: You can find allergy translation cards online for most countries. When visiting non english speaking countries this can be especially helpful! When I travel I usually have a screenshot that I can show to servers to make things easier on the server and chef!
