When I think of Bali I think of food, the beautifully displayed colourful dishes and the plates packed full of flavour. Canggu has a big mix of great local restaurants and also your organic vegan hotspots.
I have so many places that I love to eat in Canggu but I have managed to narrow it down to my absolute favourites. Go to any of my below recommendations and you will not be disappointed. Keep in mind that I am vegetarian so I have focused on going to restaurants that have a good range of vegetarian/vegan food.
My all time local favourites
This is the place where my nasi goring obsession started! With generous portions and cheap prices this place can not be missed. Serving a range of local and western food this is a great cheap and cheerful restaurant located on the main Bata Bolong road.
Bu Mi Warung
I think I ate here almost every day for lunch, it’s super addictive. This is one of Canggu’s favourite Warung’s and I’m so glad I found it. A cabinet filled with a wide range of Indonesia’s best local dishes, you can pick a plate full of anything you would like to try and they charge you accordingly. A large plate of food will generally cost you at most $3 (NZD). All the food here is full flavoured and positively delicious. It has a great range of vegan vegetarian as well as meat & seafood. I generally grabbed this takeaway daily so I could relax and eat by the pool.
Similar to Bu Mi this is another warring that you are able to pick anything from the cabinet to build a massive plate of food. They also offer a menu at a very reasonable price. This gets very busy for dinner so make sure you get in early or be prepared to wait.
Canggu Hot spots
One of the hottest instagram spots in Canggu with beautifully displayed food and hanging chairs this organic cafe cannot be missed. They serve a wide range of dishes and are open for all three meals.
A trif people. With basically everything on the menu at a low price of 55 IDR you are really getting a great deal for what you pay. Everything on the menu is amazing and I have never been disappointed all 8 times I have visited.
IF you are after good italian food la barrack is the place to go. I recommend eating in rather that takeaway as they give you great and testers when you eat there. The food is amazingly good quality and the atmosphere is great for any occasion. This place does get very busy so try book if you can.
Check Leroys out for the best Vietnamese in Canggu with the most delicious happy hour cocktails in town this is the perfect dinner spot. The food is very fresh and reasonably priced. Located not too far from the main road.
Luiji’s hot pizza
As well as being the place to be on a Monday night Luiji’s does one of the best pizzas in Canggu. It is a popular bar in Canggu to great to grab some dinner and hang out at for the rest of the night. Happy hour is between 7-8pm where you can pick up 50K cocktails and a 50K margarita pizza defiantly worth a visit especially on a Monday night.
Another very instagram-able food spot. Shady shack is a favourite among travellers with a range of healthy food options and garden seating. Be sure to try their smoothie bowls they are my favourite.
I only found this gem late in my trip but the food here was great. The menu and atmosphere of this cafe are both amazing and well worth the visit. This cafe is located on the berawa side of the shortcut.
Milu by Nook
Also located on the Berawa side of Canggu this is a beautiful restaurant located backing onto some rice fields. The menu is extensive but the overall aesthetics of the restaurant make for multiple visits back.
Your one stop plant friendly shop, Peloton serves up the finest organic vegan food. A combination of a cafe and a bicycle store you will not be disappointed making the trip over to this super shop. With a large menu focusing on helping the environment you will find it hard to not keep coming back.
Looking for your dessert fix? Mad Pops will hook you up with some of the best vegan ice cream Bali has to offer. A range of flavours and toppings that are all vegan, will be sure to even impress even the non vegans in your life.
