Halal food is the requirement for meal of Moslem which is in simple meaning does not ontain any trace of pig. As according to Islam pig is forbidden by Allah or haram due to uncleanliness of the animal seeing from what it eats, does and behave or known as najis. There are many animals classified as najis including home dog. Some of todays Moslem people takes all effort to give meaning to this old descriptions with modern discoveries of science, although seems unrelated at all. Some priests of Bali also do not eat pig following the myth of his/her position as ritual leader with different story.
In Bali if one open a restaurant or meal stall, they always have 2 types of meals, one is with pig andone is without pig to cover these two society, except those warung or stalls that only selling pig cuisine do this totally not free pig. Modern restaurant for example can be found anywhere on the island serving international travellers using buffet style of food presentation and strictly separating various cuisine such as chicken, pig, beef, sate, lawar, and many others. So when a travellers entering a buffet restaurant one can see more then 10 bowls of cuisines were put on the table with name of the cuisine can be easily read by visitor. So every one can choose to take which he/she considered suitable for their tastes. This type of restaurants mostly far from traditional strong tastes of Bali cooking tradition, much more softer in tastes. This experiences has been very long time ago since Bali has been started as the destination of tourists. At the beginning many Australian tourists without any suspicion upon arrival in Bali enjoyed too much Bali traditional cuisines and causing stomach problem called Bali belly as the result of strong pepper and chilli reaction.
That is not difficult to find halal restaurant within restaurant managed by Balinese, foreign or even traditional warung on the island, beside there are plenty specific restaurant cooking only chicken, fish or seafood, lam or sheep sate Madura, Minang restaurant, and India restaurant. Bali has rich variation of cuisines, which travellers found quiet surprising, and even some of the western chef who work for international restaurant on the island have been falling in love with Bali cuisine and opened a restaurant offering Bali cuisines.
