A kaki lima (translation, “5 legs”) is the name given to the street vendors in Bali who push their food carts around the neighbourhood selling cheap, made-on-the-spot food mostly to the local people. We might see a little variation these days but generally, the cart has 3 legs (wheels) and the human pushing it has 2, hence “kaki lima”!
