THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN CANGGU
The Slow’s restaurant is a contemporary take on ingredient-focused cooking with an island accent. Canggu’s hottest new boutique hotel is THE place to rest your bones, stir your senses, and expand your mind with their Gastronomic cuisine. Chef Shannon Moran draws upon his travels through Europe, South America, and Asia to create an ever-changing menu of revamped classics injecting bold new flavors with an emphasis on seasonality, sustainability and sane eating. And let’s not forget the drinking at one of Canggu’s best restaurants – an exotic array of flavors and tastes for the palette just as important as the eating. Try your luck with a tequila shot infused with avocado & wasabi. Or a cocktail concoction of Tobacco rum, banana syrup, bitter lime & long pepper. When the food & drink flow has satisfied your senses, unwind or liven up, to tunes curated by Reverberation Radio whilst surrounded by a contemporary selection of art and (The) Slow vibes in Canggu.
