Review: Indotopia Warung Vietnam, Canggu

Published by under Food

coffee

While Indotopia Warung Vietnam & Indonesia in Canggu looks somewhat more glamorous than your average Bali warung, with pretty chairs and dangly things and a very clean, open kitchen, it’s not going to win any design awards. This is a simple, open-t0-the-street affair, with a basic garden courtyard at the rear. Decor doesn’t matter too … read the full post

Review: Bungalow, Canggu

Published by under Food

bungalowcages

Set in a gorgeous space — Bali meets Morroco meets shabby chic — new combined homewares shop and cafe Bungalow in Bali’s Canggu is a great stop for a coffee and browse for a tasteful Bali souvenir. Either as an atmospheric cafe alone or as a shop selling interesting curios it would be worth a … read the full post

The Little Green Cafe, Bali

Published by under Food

spice

The Little Green Cafe is a favourite healthy spot of ours in Bali’s Seminyak area, serving up scrumptious salads and light vegan and vegetarian fare in a sunny and shaded courtyard. Sit at one of three tables in the small air-con shop area, where you can also pick up a small selection of healthy groceries … read the full post

Review: Warung Sulawesi, Bali

Published by under Food

food

Nothing is quite as humiliating as having another expat express incredulity about you not having visited a particular restaurant or sight. And so it was, chastised by another, that I sought out Warung Sulawesi (yes, worse — it’s very close to our base in Bali). Located on Seminyak‘s Jalan Petitenget, just a few hundred metres … read the full post

Mozaic Beach Club for dinner

Published by under Food

The very shabby upstairs dining room.

Relatively new Bali restaurant arrival Mozaic Beach Club offers an incredible six-course tasting journey as well as an a la carte menu offering meals that are among Bali’s most creative and simply delicious. Set in elegant surrounds overlooking the beach club lounge and Batu Belig beach beyond, it’s the coastal cousin of Bali culinary institution, … read the full post

Review: Betelnut Cafe, Bali

Published by under Food

healthysalad2

It can be a challenge to find a cafe or restaurant in Bali combining healthy food with delicious Balinese flavours, but Betelnut Cafe, in Bali’s Canggu on the way to Echo beach, does an excellent job of doing precisely this, in colourful, relaxed surrounds. Well worth seeking out for a meal, the eclectic cafe focuses … read the full post

Warung Mertha Sari, near Goa Lawah, Bali

Published by under Food

sate

This is the sort of restaurant any traveller likes to stumble upon: it’s out of the way, serves just one thing, and does that one thing well. At Warung Mertha Sari, there’s no menu, with diners ordering simply by the number of portions they’d like of their specialty, sate lilit ikan, or minced fish sate. … read the full post

Gusto ice cream, Bali

Published by under Food

Tamarillo and ginger.

It’s called Gusto Gelato and Caffe. It’s simple. It’s out of the way, tucked down a quiet street a good 10 minutes’ drive north of Bali’s Seminyak, in the more residential Umalas area. If you love ice cream, you’ve got to come here. If you don’t love ice cream, come here, and you will. You’ll … read the full post

Review: Mantra, Seminyak

Published by under Food

Twas a dark and stormy night and I has only an iPhone to record it.

With its mismatched furniture, burnished antique lamps and shabby chic vibe, relatively new Mantra on Seminyak’s Petitenget loop — just a short hop from Potato Head, away from the beach — has quickly turned into the place to be seen for dinner or late night drinks in this corner of the world. The feel is … read the full post
