Most ETG experiences include a lunch, and we design the experience to ensure you steer clear of ordinary tourist buffets and focus on flavours of the local cuisine. We also like to ensure at least one such meal during your holiday is taken at a social enterprise restaurant. Typically, establishments that collaborate with local community programs, offering vocational training that creating life-changing employment opportunities for marginalised youth. Beyond the skills they teach their trainees, these restaurants serve lovely home-cooked food and are a platform for cultural exchange - where you can chat with staff members and learn about local customs.
As part of our orientation tour of Ubud we include dinner at Fair Warung Bale, a social enterprise restaurant that aims to provide free healthcare to those in need. The restaurant's profits directly fund the Fair Future Foundation, which runs various healthcare programs. You can enjoy a wide range of delectable dishes such as Nasi Campur, Mie Goreng or Babi Guling: A Balinese specialty consisting of succulent roasted suckling pig served with aromatic steamed rice, crispy skin, spicy sambal, and various accompaniments.
We began including social enterprise restaurants as part of an initiative we call “One Meal At A Time”. We started this in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar and have since expanded it to include restaurants in Sri Lanka, Laos, India, Indonesia, and Thailand. We are confident of the positive local impact these restaurants have and of the way in which they can also enhance your experience of our destinations.
