Petitenget is a nice place to go if you want to have high quality, light meals in decent colonial atmosphere. The bar at the entrance is very elegant and classy, a good place to wait for a table, in case you don’t have a reservation (it’s wise to make one if you are 4 people or more).
They offer a great selection of healthy and light meals and wines from France, New Zealand, Italy and Australia. We went there for a ladies lunch in hot weather and all craved for something fresh, aromatic and light (except for the dessert of course…). We ordered Fish & Chips, Snapper Fillet, Salad with BBQ Tiger Prawns, The Wagyu beef burger and the poached chicken salad for main course.
The prices are a pit above the average, but once in a while it’s ok…and the quality of the food is very high. We paid 74,000rp (5,00€) for the Prawn salad and snapper fillet, 86,000rp (5,70€) for the burger and 70,000rp (4,60€) for the fish and chips. The taste of all dishes was amazing; I especially liked the Prawn salad with a combination of Tiger prawns, coconut, mint, pomelo and coriander.
For dessert we ordered Lemon panna cotta, tiramisu and chocolate tart, for 40.000rp (2,60€) each. My favorite was the panna cotta with lemon, poppy seeds and fresh fruits.
This week I tried one of the many newly opened restaurants in Canggu. Lost&Found is open for breakfast and lunch and has a nice selection of breakfast/brunch sets and fresh juices and smoothies. The design of the restaurant is very cute and cozy in bright colors mixed with wood. They have a lot of creative furniture, like a table with an old coffee maker instead of a stand. The whole inside area is very bright and offers a great atmosphere for breakfast. As they are directly on Jl. Subak Sari next to Canggu Club they don’t have an outside area.
We went there for a late breakfast, so everyone was very hungry when we arrived. We ordered the sunshinebrekkie, the oriental breakfast and the hungry surfer breakfast and I got a fresh juice (beetroot/orange) on top. The service was attentive and very friendly and the food arrived quickly after ordering. I especially liked the oriental breakfast eggs, baked in an oven dish with spicy sausage and yogurt sauce on top, served with herbal baguette slices.
The sunshine breakfast is a combination of fruit salad with yogurt and honey, a croissant and coffee and juice (you can choose any coffee and from the 2 juices of the day, in our case watermelon or honeydew). The combination for hungry surfers contains 2 eggs (as you like them), 1 fried potato patty, roasted mushrooms and tomatoes, bacon and 1 sausage and toast plus coffee and juice. The prices are very reasonable; we paid 65.000rp (4,30 €) for the hungry surfer breakfast, 40.000rp (2,60 €) for the oriental eggs and 35.000rp (2,50 €) for the sunny breakfast.
In my opinion Lost & Found is a great new place for breakfast to try in the Canggu area; next time I go there I’ll try the smoothies.
A very commendable sushi restaurant in Bali, is Seki Tei in Umalas on Jl. Bumbak . They offer an authentic Japanese atmosphere in a clean and modern design. An eye catcher is the entry, with a walking way of natural stones between bamboo walls. The waiters are attentive and friendly; the menu offers a large selection of sushi, sashimi and warm Japanese dishes.
We tried the miso soup, gyoza with pork, cucumber maki, california rolls, nigiri with japanese omlett and avocado-prawn rolls. The sushi was tasty, the seafood fresh and good quality. My favorites were the miso soup and the nigiri sushi with Japanese omelette, also the gyoza were very delicious and well seasoned. The presentation of the food was beautiful, on typical Japanese dining ware (which I would love to have at home).
The prices are totally reasonable, maki rolls (6 pcs) cost between 20.000rp and 30.000rp (1,30-1,90€), the california and avocado-prawn rolls 60.000rp (3,80€). The miso soup you get for 15.000rp (1,00€) and the gyoza for 30.000 (1,90€). In my opinion Seki Tei is a great place for Japanese food with a nice, relaxing atmosphere, if you are a sushi fan and stay in Canggu area, you may like this restaurant.
