Best places to eat in Canggu, Bali
Welcome to Canggu, Bali’s new pretender to the culinary throne! With fabulous new cafes and restaurants popping up weekly, it can be hard to know how to sort the best from the rest – but never fear, we at Bali Comfy Villas have selflessly eaten our way through them all for your benefit. While Canggu is indisputably top dog for its boho café scene, it’s also swiftly gaining pace for elegant dinners and date nights too. Read on for our selection of the most delicious plates and engaging ambiences in town, from breakfast to dinner (and with a few coffee and cocktail breaks thrown in there too!)
Best for brekkie and brunch
When you’re hungry and only just awake, the last thing you want is to trail around searching for a great breakfast place. So, take our advice and jump out of your bed with a plan. Canggu is packed with great cafes serving breakfast and brunch, but these are some of our very favourites.
Don’t miss our absolute favourite breakfast spot in Berawa, or its branch in Pererenan! Both a bakery and a great brunch spot, Baked’s speciality is its fresh baked breads and pastries: certain people in our office will do anything for their enormo croissants. I’d also highly recommend the sourdough. It’s not just a bakery though – poached eggs, scrambled eggs and delicious Toulouse sausages are on the menu as well as amazing sweet treats like pastels de nata and baklava. Get here early and prepare to queue – it’s popular for a reason!
This is absolutely not your average brunch spot. Sensorium Bali offers Australian food but with a crazy creative Asian twist. Fancy scrambled eggs? Try them here and you’ll be transported to Korea with flavours like kimchi, braised beef and seaweed. Challenge your expectations with popular dishes like pork belly rice bowl, dry ramen (served with a 62 degree sous vide egg) and Textures of Mushroom. This is innovative, engaging food that will leave you thinking about it all day – and served without pretension. No reservations are taken and you should expect to wait before you’re seated – but trust us, it’s worth it.
If you want to brunch in a beautiful setting, Penny Lane is the place to try. With an airy feel thanks to the glass roof dripping with vines and a whole funky style of its own, incorporating murals, stained glass, fountains and chandeliers, the ambience will have you – and your Insta followers – hooked. It’s open for all day dining, but we recommend brunch – go for the shakshuka or the Dragon Bowl Z. The menu combines traditional Balinese dishes and Western favourites, and has something for everyone to eat while they soak up the atmosphere.
Can’t get enough avocado? Well, here’s a café that has sneaked into the darkest corners of your brain and created a temple to your most secret fantasies. No, not those ones: it’s ALL about the avocado. Everything on the menu here features local avocados somehow, some way. Get your mouth around their Truffle Benedict with avocado and truffled hollandaise, or the soft egg bowl with mascarpone, sourdough, avocado and chives. My personal choice? The rye sourdough, with avocado (of course!), mushrooms, almonds, chilli dust and lime pulp. And all with an idyllic view over rice fields.
If you want to try some of the best Balinese coffee around, head to Satu Satu. This café and roastery was opened by the Sudana family, local coffee legends, with government support due to the importance placed on showcasing this local talent. The Sudana family have plantations across Bali and rely only on traditional Balinese methods to ensure the highest quality of organic coffee and top notch freshness and flavour. It’s not just coffee either: choose from smoothie bowls, smoked salmon bagels, pancakes, eggs benedict and much more.
Best for all day café culture
Café culture is what Canggu does best. Nourishing bowls, healthy salads, vegan bites, sandwiches, great coffee – no problem.
Brunch, lunch, dinner: Milk n Madu smashes them all. With two Canggu branches (one in Berawa and one on Batu Bolong), you’re never too far away to sample their great food, convivial atmosphere, or good coffee. Plenty for the kids too, with a delightful outdoor playground plus free face painting and a decent kids’ menu. The food is fresh and healthy, with the poke bowls one of my personal favourites. Don’t miss the lava stone pizza either, which is 2 for the price of one on Tuesdays and Sundays.
Rice field views and great food, what more could you want? Milu might be located on a busy street, but once you’re in, you wouldn’t know, thanks to its tropical garden overlooking rice fields. Milu’s menu doesn’t disappoint either: there’s great local foods (you need to try their nasi campur), Western style foods, and plenty of light, healthy options through brunch, lunch and dinner. Great cocktail and wine list too!
Another breakfast to dinner café, Nude has recently been renovated and is oh so modern now with a Balinese twist. Great for healthy options, Nude also allows a little indulgence, with a menu that features great cocktails and burgers alongside its smoothies and salads. Truffle Mac and Cheese or veggie packed Nourish Bowl? You’re going to enjoy it either way.
This laid back café is perfect for breakfast, lunch AND dinner – as well as for all your coffee stops in between. Created by Suka Espresso, it’s particularly famed for its amazing speciality coffee, with some of the best brews on the island. If you want something more substantial than coffee, well, that’s ideal too, because Lusa offers not only cakes and pastries and Australian style breakfasts, but also larger plates, such as the on-trend chicken katsu sando, seafood laksa and creative veggie options such as charred cabbage and burnt leek puree with lentils and pomegranate. In the evening it’s still a winner, with steaks, pizza and pasta on the menu alongside signature cocktails and live music three nights a week.
Best for casual European style dining
Sometimes you just want something familiar and easy for your dinner: pizza, pasta, am I right? Especially if you’re a group with varying preferences or if you maybe had one too many cocktails the night before. Not that you would ever do that, oh no. Try one of our favourite casual joints, the sort that are well suited to laid back evening dining.
If you ask me – and I hope you would – this is the best pizza place in all of Bali. Traditional wood fired pizzas with perfectly thin, charred bases (apparently it’s in the maturation method) and seriously quality toppings, generously loaded. Also, and I cannot stress this enough, get some burrata. You’ll thank me.
This place is a no brainer if you want good home made pastas, wood fired pizzas and decent wine. The prosciutto stuffed tortellini with a pea sauce is delish, as is their signature dish, the cellitti alla’ amatriciana. There’s a whole menu for vegans too. And don’t forget that Friday night is oyster night!
An affordable, laid back, unpretentious joint from the pair who brought you Da Maria in Seminyak, Luigi’s Hot Pizza offers full on pizza-ing, with metre long options (I’m told you’re supposed to share these with a large group, but sometimes I just get hungry, ok?) and crazy party nights. This is where the fun happens, Monday nights are club nights so bring your friends and prepare to dance!
Maybe tapas is more your speed? Alma’s is a great spot to enjoy some delicious Spanish delicacies with friends. All the favourites are here – patatas bravas, albondigas, olives, plates of cheeses and cured hams, croquetas, tortilla Espanola – plus some exciting extras, like pork belly with mojo picon sauce, squid stuffed with chorizo, pork belly, apples and onions, or mushroom croquetas with truffle aioli. Don’t forget their great house wines and negronis either!
Best for upscale European style dining
After something a little more special? Maybe a little more romantic? Try one of these enchanting options for a great evening, Mediterranean style.
An exciting new addition to the local restaurant scene: a little piece of Paris in Canggu. Inspired by grand Parisian cafes, Lulu Bistrot’s menu is centred on French cuisine, with local ingredients. A fabulously stocked wine cellar and the strains of live jazz set the ambience. Arrive early so you can take an aperitif on the sunny terrace (try the house French Martini) before sitting down in the elegant dining room. Start with wagyu tartare or the onion tarte tatin, followed by the roasted crevettes with tomato, vermouth and tarragon, or the lamb neck braised in red wine gravy.
Luma is one of Canggu’s biggest players in Mediterranean food, and for good reason. The ethos is Southern European dishes, made with indigenous ingredients, and the kitchen boasts a wood fire oven and charcoal grill. This gives us great dishes like their tomato tart with stracciatella, olives & Balinese kenari nuts, or squid ink linguine with local river prawns, salt cod and chilli; but with a frequently changing menu, there’s going to be surprises! Make sure you book in advance; this place is very popular.
Delightful, intimate restaurant specialising in Italian and French cuisine with a focus on freshly caught seafood…and wine. For starters, try the burrata with pickled capsicum and tomatoes, or the clams with chickpeas and nduja; follow it up with the Provence seafood soup or the pumpkin ravioli with parmesan, sage and pine nuts. And keep on eye on the ever changing specials.
Best for something a bit different
Sometimes even I get bored of eating Mediterranean, Aussie, Asian-fusion or Balinese from time to time and fancy a whole different set of flavours to refresh my taste buds. Here are some of the best restaurants when you want a change – from Middle Eastern to Indian, to Vietnamese and Mexican delights.
We’re heading to the Middle East now via Sababa, a great choice for ordering a pile of delicious small plates to share with friends. All the food here is served family style, or on mezze grazing plates. There’s everything you might expect – kefta, labneh, hummus, falafels – and a few things you might not – try the cala ganoush, a smoked black babaganoush with grilled calamari, onion marmalade and parsley dukkah, or their Middle Eastern twist on pasta with harissa rigatoni, which comes with halloumi, capers and Kalamata olives. There are some pretty cool cocktails too – how about a Sumac Gimlet, or a Medjool Whisky Sour?
Who wants to go for a Polynesian? Everyone, it turns out: the queue is inevitably pretty long by even 7pm, so best to call ahead. Moana is a bit of everything: smoothie and juice bar, fresh fish market and Polynesian restaurant specialising in all things fish – poke bowls, sashimi, barbecue. There’s even tuna or mahi mahi burgers and pasta dishes. And don’t miss their fab coconut cheesecake for dessert.
How about a delicious Indian meal with a contemporary twist? Book early, this new addition to Pererenan is proving extremely popular. Eat on the terrace if you can – this beautiful, romantic space is full of lush greenery and thoughtful décor. The menu is all about marrying authentic Indian tradition with fresh local ingredients to create vibrant dishes to share. We strongly recommend the samosa tartelette sharing plate, the tandoor octopus, the cauliflower tikka and the local quail tikka. Treat yourself to a couple of their exciting Indian cocktails too – the Masala Chai Sour and Boozy Lassi are my favourites.
If there is one type of food I’ve missed since moving here, it’s a lovely steaming bowl of pho made just right. No longer! Pho Mo in Berawa opened right at the end of 2022 and now, well, if you can’t find me, it’s not a bad idea to check there first. And it’s a great example of what pho can be. Go for the iconic Pho Bo with rib eye slice plus brisket, the broth is complex, the beef is top quality: it’s perfect hearty comfort food.
Motel Mexicola has come to Canggu!! A long established hot name on the Seminyak party scene, Motel Mexicola is now serving its vibrant flavours and fiesta vibes here too. Don’t go for a quiet romantic date night, go to have fun. Try the confit duck tacos, and the beef cheek tacos with bone marrow, snapper ceviche, and esquites, and wash them back with amazing house cocktails. And don’t forget margarita happy hours from 5pm-7pm!
Best for sushi and friends
Welcome to Japanggu! You might be forgiven for thinking you’ve stumbled into the wrong country, thanks to Canggu’s growing list of sushi, ramen and izakaya restaurants and cafes. From budget friendly sushi trains to upscale Japanese fusion, there is Japanese food to suit everyone.
At last, a revolving sushi bar right by my house! Delicious sushi without having to take out a bank loan! I’m all over this one. And if that wasn’t enough, Sushimi has a great selection of vegetarian and vegan options (inari sushi is the bomb!). Try the tuna sambal matah for an exciting Japan-Indonesian fusion and don’t miss the crab croquettes, they are a must-eat.
With branches in Berawa and Canggu, Tygr’s specialism is hand rolled sushi, which swings from traditional to their own adventurous inventions: how about trying Krispy Tyger, which has spicy tuna, avocado and cucumber on the inside and Hamachi, crispy onion and truffle ponzu on the outside? Or try the spiced up Fireball which comes with the house special, Tyger hot sauce? And if you’re vegan, these guys can do sushi magic with a jackfruit. Grab some sake or a signature cocktail, sit back and watch the sushi chefs at work.
The art of sushi reaches its Canggu peak at Indigo in Berawa, where its Japanese chef, Morita Shigehiko, fresh from a Michelin star restaurant in Kyoto, creates contemporary twists on Japanese classics, with a hint of European influence. Top quality – and rare- ingredients are proudly and carefully sourced direct from Japan: we love the Hamachi sashimi, accentuated with green radish, nasturtium and shiso ponzu sauce. If you’re on a budget, given the lunch sets a go – this is quality food at an accessible price. The ambience is serene, with Japanese shoji doors: this place is a real treat. Be sure to book in advance.
Hungry for more from Japanese chefs with sterling credentials? The chef at One Eyed Jack is Nobu-trained, and it shows. This modern izakaya specialises in creative, updated Japanese dishes: we love the sashimi tataki with yuzu, sesame and ginger, the “umami bite” which combines uni, salmon roe, unagi, tobiko and nori, and the soft shell crab bao sliders. There are also some great, innovative cocktails and an impressive sake list.
Japanese fusion combined with knockout ocean views – if you’re feeling like a spicy sushi roll while you feel the breeze on a roof top terrace and watch the sun set over the Indian ocean, this is the place you need to be. The sushi is the star here – try the Dragon of Ji handmade roll with prawn tempura, avocado and tobiko spicy mayo, or for something a bit out there, the Toriniku with karaage chicken, mitsuba mayo, tonkatsu, pickled red cabbage and mango. There’s also large plates – bowls of noodles, steak, ribs, lobster – all with a Japanese twist. I love the Prawn Flambe with yuzu butter, wasabi mayo and coriander. While the food is all about Japan, the décor is Indonesian, with beautiful statues, masks and artworks from across the islands.
Berawa’s own Asian casual fine diner offers a great range of locally sourced seafood and farm produce on its Japanese influenced menu, centred on techniques such as dry ageing, curing, raw and dry filleting. Highlights include the aged coral trout carpaccio with black garlic vinegar and sake, their amazing take on a coddled egg, and the raw amberjack in tomato consommé with shiso leaf, but my top tip is to always eat something from the specials, which are guaranteed to be…special. Other top tip is to go all in for the 6-course tasting menu, and pair it with the amazing range of natural wines, sake and creative cocktails.
Best for authentic local food on a budget
You might be wondering where, among all the Aussie style cafes, Mediterranean, Japanese and pan Asian restaurants, the real local food is? The answer is to be found in the warungs: buffet style eateries where you can eat a large plate of authentic food for a very low price. While Canggu has huge numbers of very basic, very local warungs, there are also some that tap into tourist demand by slightly elevating the offer and upping the quality, while also retaining a very affordable price point. Try one! But remember that after 5-6pm, food availability is a lot more limited, so come early.
Warung Heboh offers great, authentic food at low prices. We particularly enjoy the barbecued whitebait, the potato curry and the chicken satay; the fresh juice is also a must-try. There’s also a good range of options if you’re vegetarian or vegan.
Warung Maaak is especially popular with tourists as it’s sparklingly clean, new and tidy, with food displays that verge on the Instagrammable. Try the thick Indonesian omelette (telur dadar), the soto ayam (Indonesian chicken noodle soup) or the chicken and shrimp meatballs (bakso).
Delicious home style food, with presentation at a higher level than you might expect for a buffet. This warung is a favourite among tourists and locals alike – always a sign of good food at a fair price. It’s centrally located, and busy, with the food constantly refreshed. This is a great option for non meat eaters – the tofu and tempeh dishes are excellent, as are the corn fritters and the pumpkin curry.
Family-run, this pretty, colourful warung is a delight, with its great range of foods – try the cassava leaf curry, the marinated and toasted tempeh, or the crispy fried chicken.
Best for…elevated Indonesian and Indo-Western fusion
High end Indonesian food is a rarity in Canggu, where expensive restaurants tend to skew Aussie, European or Japanese, but recently we’ve seen a few emerging places that work with traditional local foods and give them a top chef twist.
La Casa Tua is a delight. It’s that rare animal, a restaurant that serves authentic Indonesian food in a relaxed, upmarket environment. This cute, traditional building is set in beautiful gardens – if you’re lucky you’ll see rabbits hopping around. It’s romantic, quirky and absolutely adorable. Try the garlicky squid stuffed with aubergine in a ginger lemongrass sauce, or the chicken breast on pandan leaf. This is Indonesian soul food, passed down through generations, cooked and served with love.
Ulekan, named after the traditional stone pestle and mortar used by every Indonesian kitchen to make sambal and bumbul, celebrates Bali through its traditional dishes and its admirable efforts to source ingredients locally from small scale farmers and fishermen. The results are sublime: go with a group and order a tonne of dishes to share, because you won’t want to miss out on trying everything here. We recommend the beef rendang – you’ve probably tried this before, but not with such careful spicing and tender meat. Be sure to book in advance if you want to visit at a weekend.
Iwa, located in Hotel Tugu, offers Indonesia food in a contemporary fine dining environment. It describes itself as ‘A Culinary Journey throughout the Indonesian Archipelago’, taking in diverse and exciting local specialities from across the country, with beautiful presentation. Try their ‘Conglak’ option – Conglak is a traditional children’s board game, and here the conglak board is used to present a range of delicious dishes you can pick and choose yourself. Live Balinese dancing adds an additional layer of appeal every Thursday night.
With a focus on health and relaxation, set in a structure made of organic, sustainable bamboo and located by an inviting pool, Ketala is more than just a restaurant, although you are welcome to come just for a meal or even just a drink (there’s no minimum spend, everything here is chill). Relax in the sun, have a dip in the pool, try out some spa treatments, spend the day. The menu centres on healthy options, and skews Indonesian: try the Megibung Set, which consists of small plates of the restaurant’s most popular Indonesian dishes. Or the grilled oxtail with beef broth, which is to die for, quite frankly.
Best for treating yourself
Canggu is fit to bursting with great casual cafes, but when you want something a bit high end, something a bit special for a big night out, the options are a little more limited. But never fear, we are here to show you the way.
Kong is a contemporary bistro that serves up elevated old school European flavours in a chic setting with great service. What more could you want? Handmade cocktails? Got it. Bar snacks? Yup (the lobster spoon! Eat the lobster spoon). Impressive wine list? My god yes, just lock me in that cellar. The menu centres on the familiar – beef short ribs, lamb ragu tagliatelle, crispy pork belly – but everything is executed perfectly. With a head chef hailing from the New York branch of Nobu, no detail is missed – that short rib? It’s been braised for 12 hours. There are creative bites too: the black garlic hummus takes this familiar dish to a new level; the piri piri prawns are balanced with elderflower; the tuna tartare sits with mint cream, a dill emulsion, pickled jalapenos and nori rice crackers, bringing freshness, acidity, crunch and a flash of heat to this classic dish. And an additional tip for you: it stays open till late, with a DJ till midnight.
Sa’mesa is more than a meal, it’s an experience. Not for the shy and retiring, this is a social, convivial supper club style destination that makes you feel like your Italian grandmother has invited you and everyone else she bumped into that day, round for dinner. There’s a single table which seats all the diners for that night. Food is brought out – at least 18 different dishes! – and placed in the centre of the table for everyone to share, along with wine, cocktails and free flowing limoncello. The menu changes every evening so we can’t tell you what to eat, just that you need to go and try it – but please remember to book well in advance.
Skool Kitchen embraces the primitive, with food cooked in a line of flames, right by the ocean. It’s theatre all right. Situated above The Lawn, with clear ocean views, Skool Kitchen’s modern menu is powered by natural wood and charcoal embers, with flames licking every dish. It’s backed by some of Bali’s biggest names on the food scene, so you know you’re in for a good time. The slow-roasted lamb is marinated for over three days in garlic, yogurt, and spices, then trussed and hung over the fireplace to roast to perfection, and served in its own spiced juice. Or try the wood-fired bone marrow on toast, or Argentinian red prawns with smoked paprika butter, or the slow-roasted eggplant with currant relish and cashews. Even some of the cocktails are flamed, such as the Burnt Lemon Daiquiri. Just one more thing you need to know – book well in advance, this place is – please excuse the pun, I can’t help myself – on fire.
Indonesia’s first natural wine bar – and its innovative food is worth coming for too. Inspired by the neo-bistros of Paris and Sydney with an upmarket yet relaxed ambience, this stand out bar comes from the Mexicola Group, and lists over 70 low intervention wines and zero waste cocktails. A globally inspired menu balances local Balinese flavours and ingredients with international creativity – try the taglioni with sambal arrabbiata, or the coppa from black Balinese heritage pigs. We love the bbq pork collar with burnt sweet potato and carrot mash and kaffir lime sauce, and if you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss the miso tarte tatin.
Born in Seminyak, Shelter now has a branch in laid back Pererenan. It’s a cosy, intimate space set in a Balinese joglo style structure, and the food – Mediterranean/Middle Eastern style – is amazing. Start with some sharing plates – a zatar pretzel with labneh and honey, wood roasted moon scallops with chilli, lemon butter and sumac, flatbread with whipped chickpeas and smoked paprika oil. The mains are stunning too – try the pan roasted barramundi with sweet tomato, zucchini, mint, cucumber, garlic & lemon potato. And wash it all down with their signature Shelter cocktail, which they describe as ‘aged grape distillate accompanied by the herbal amaro, sweet sherry and a splash of peaty whiskey’. If you can’t imagine what that’s like, trust me – it’s delicious.
Organic, farm to table produce woven into a diverse range of Latin American fusion style small plates for sharing – we love it! Plus a roof top terrace with ocean views (sit here with a cocktail and some appetisers before the main event), and we’re all suckers for that. Then downstairs to graze on some ceviche – we love the hamachi with plantain crackers, leche de tigre and gooseberries – then grab some larger plates – the mole rosa that accompanies the dry aged duck (also with charred beetroot and pomegranate) is sensational, and you also have to try the Colombian corn cake – we promise it’s not the boring corn cake you’re expecting. Santanera also has one of the best wine lists in Canggu, so don’t miss out on that. Cheers!
Best for taking in the view
We’ve already talked about quite a few places with gorgeous views – Ji Terrace and Skool Kitchen with their ocean-side seating, the rice field views at La Baracca and Nude – but if you want a beachside view without the beach club, here are some others you can’t miss.
We’re moving over to Pererenan for this one: how about refined Mediterranean dishes while we enjoy the sea breeze and ocean views? Fresh fish is the speciality here – but first, let’s have a cocktail at the roof top bar and take in the sunset. How does gin, aperol, elderflower and citrus sound? (this one’s called Hi Ladies). Then maybe some small plates to share (get the grilled octopus with potato espuma and salsa verde), then maybe a massive plate of charred prawns with chilli oil, or a bowl of spaghetti vongole. Does it sound like I’m inviting myself along? Well, there’s good reason for that, see you at 7.
A new addition to Echo Beach, Electric Eel – which calls itself ‘your neighborhood beach house’ offers all day dining with unbroken ocean views through to sunset and beyond. Breakfasts are a big event here, with smoked ham hock benedict, Spanish egg with chorizo or ricotta pancakes being the stars. The rooftop lounge with bar and terrace is the perfect place to chill with a cocktail while the sun goes down, before moving on to your main meal: the menu ranges from quick bites like Iberian coppa through to bigger plates like steak frites and chicken schnitzel; we like the green gnocchetti with cavolo nero and confit garlic.
A modern izakaya right on the beach front, with ocean views aplenty, Yuki offers some of the best contemporary Japanese on this island. Casual bites of sushi and yakitori from the charcoal grill dominate the menu, along with small treats like the nori ahi taco and a wagyu beef sando – and plenty of great options for vegetarians and vegans. You have to order the tuna truffle maki roll with tobiko, pickled radish and yuzu kosho, the vegan oyster mushroom yakitori, and the charcoal grilled octopus with black vinegar, shiso oil and heirloom tomatoes. The drinks menu is pretty special too: alongside the classic cocktails, wines and beers there’s some very creative house cocktails and even hot sake.
This one’s not by the ocean; it’s out in the rice fields. Smoke is essentially a massive, perfectly executed barbecue. The dining area is in an outdoor tent, and there’s a glowing fire pit giving the experience some serious theatre. You name it, these guys will cook almost anything low and slow; meat, seafood, mushrooms, even tempeh. They’ll char some stuff too – steaks, cauliflower, spatchcock chicken. And do a bit of smoking on the side – the smoked ox tongue is their signature starter. That barbecue flavour makes its way into the cocktails too – try the smoky Bloody Mary, or Purple Haze, a gin cocktail based on charcoal infused gin. No reservations taken, unless you’re a group of 10 or more – just rock up and chill out.
Best for vegan and vegetarian
Almost every café and restaurant in Canggu has something for the vegetarians and vegans, and most do it extremely well. But if you want a place that has an exclusively vegetarian (or vegan) menu, choose from our picks below, ranging from the super healthy to the divinely indulgent.
For extra healing power with your dinner, try Samadi. Not just a café, Samadi focuses on body, mind and soul, drawing from Ayurvedic principles to create food with the power to heal and energize the body, with a focus on raw and vegan dishes. Samadi uses local, seasonal organic produce where possible, supporting fair trade practices. As well as a cafe, Samadi offers a bustling organic farmer’s market on Sundays, daily yoga classes and other wellness services such as massage.
Day to night vegetarian and vegan dining in Pererenan focuses on local flavours and local, seasonal ingredients – and some special cocktails to accompany them. While there are plenty of great breakfast and lunch options, it’s the dinner menu that is really exciting. Order the beetroot tartare, with Dijon truffle aioli, cornichons, crispy leeks, taro chips and smoked salt, or the eggplant tempura bao with black garlic mayo and togarashi. Wash it down with a coconut and pandan negroni or try one of their special house fermented shrubs based local fermented fruit vinegars, such as apple & snake fruit, with or without whisky (I vote with).
You know that when a vegan café attracts non-vegans, it’s going to be good. That’s the case with Canggu institution, Peloton Supershop. We love the Rendang burger, the Carbonara and the Tricken Caesar wrap but it’s hard to choose, so get a few dishes (definitely get some salads) and share away. Sit upstairs if you can, and enjoy the breeze.
Had enough of Aussie style vegan cafes, enough of vegan bowls and burgers and tacos? Give Kasto a try – a vegan café specialising in hearty Italian food made from ethically sourced, plant based, local ingredients. Dishes are meant to be served family style and shared, from their handmade pasta to pizzas and gourmet salads. Try the arancini to start, then some of nonna’s polpette or some cheesy truffle gnocchi.
Delightful, indulgent vegan food shines out at this game changer of a café, although of course you can have a salad and a smoothie if you wish. Ricefield views, great service and cruelty-free food that feels decadent makes it a must-visit. Have one of their huge, juicy burgers (Buffalo Chik Wing Burger gets my vote), a full English breakfast, a club sandwich or a Teriyaki Tokyo bowl – you’ll never feel like you’re missing out.
