  1. MASON

CUISINE: Wholesome international & fresh food

Location: Batu Belong, Canggu

First they blew our minds with Fishbone Local, and then, Canggu’s unstoppable team of hospitality hotshots did it again with Mason. Just a few sandy-footed steps up the road from Fishbone, Mason takes a slightly different approach to its fish-focussed flagship. At Mason, top quality meats are carefully sourced, cheeses, dips and veggies are all homemade, and everything is served simply and honestly to let the flavours and quality really shine. The brown-butter hummus here is the best we’ve ever tried, as is the honey-fried halloumi, the smoked tuna dip and the slow-roasted, grain-fed beef short rib. Oh, and true to form, MASON also slings superb cocktails…

  1. ONE EYED JACK

CUISINE: Japanese

Location: Pantai Berawa, Canggu

A playful take on a Japanese Izakaya and Sake Bar, One Eyed Jack is a culinary underdog. While its aesthetic is all about casual shared plates in a cool and vibey setting, make no mistake – One Eyed Jack means business. The menu is the work of a Noma-trained chef, and as such, the Japanese food here is some of the best we’ve tried in Bali (if not in Indonesia). The cocktails are also worth a mention, as are the spicy tuna bites on crispy rice topped with an eel sauce – they are next level delicious. Seriously.

  1. JI TERRACE BY THE SEA

CUISINE: Japanese Fusion
INSTAGRAM:  @jirestaurantbali

Location: Batu Belong – Canggu

Part of the iconic Hotel Tugu BaliJi Terrace by the Sea is a breezy and beautiful rooftop spot crammed full of cultural touches, colourful designs, and some of the best Japanese fusion food on the island. The scrummy Asian-inspired menu is the work of renowned chef Colin Buchan, previously from Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants in London, Jason Atherton’s Pollen in Singapore, and the personal chef to David and Victoria Beckham. Try the signature Dragon of Ji (a chopstick treats of crispy ebi tempura, slick avocado slices and a creamy, slightly spicy sauce on exp ertly rolled rice) and the beautifully seared Tuna Tataki with a light sesame seed crust.
