This place located just up the road from Canggu Club after the bend. We were just happen to walk up the street and decided to give a new place a try. I live in Bali and boy were we blown away by the food in this small simple restaurant. As a Vietnamese food enthusiast, we were very happy to know a new place that serve PHO since the last one (Rendy's Corner up near jail road) was closed until indefinite time. The food they serve here is what I'd categorize as "Happy Food" a simple, (kind of) home cooked, good taste, and great value. It's not going to be an authentic or out of this world kind of PHO but you got what you paid for and you won't regret it. In the last two weeks we probably have been here for 9 times for lunch and dinner. And all friends that we brought here were happy and love the food. (ps. We’ll bring more soon!)
We've tried (and pleasantly surprised by) almost all things in the menu. Green papaya salad (with/without beef) is delicious, I might be exaggerating a little bit but it's almost better than the Chrispy Salmon Salad they serve in Mamasan and it’s only for $2. And if you are a vegetarian you MUST try their Gado-Gado and Karedok. Both are Indonesian food and are FANTASTIC, I'm saying this as a person who grew up in Java and eat tons of gado-gado and karedok in my time. I can easily vouch that this is THE best one I had in Bali and they're less than $2, basically almost the same price that you'd pay back in Java. Granted that Bali is the tourist island and MANY things were over priced here (for the quality that you get) I'm happy to tell you that this place charge you as if you are a local, not a tourist price. And in this day and age, you'd be happy to know that (I’m starting to sound like an old Chinese woman).
I can’t really remember all we ate here but just pick one and you’d not be disappointed. Fried rice-noodle and the fried rice (both vegetarian or with beef/tuna/chicken) are good. The appetizers and the main menu (both Indonesian and Vietnam) are all DELICIOUS. And they come in the right portion, small enough for you to have it yourself (if you’re feeling greedy!) and big enough for you to share (if you are poor backpacker students).
Coconuts are always freshly picked and cut open when you order (served with ice and lime). Staffs are friendly and service is ok. Place is simple and clean, I prefer to sit in the back garden where we can have conversation and not to be bothered by the noises of the motorbikes and cars. They have parking for maybe 10 motorbikes and if you drive car you can park on the street side a little bit up the road.
I believe there’re still rooms for improvement in their Vietnamese Coffee and Lemon grass tea. But other than that I’d be more than happy to eat here for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of my life. I’d be fat and frumpy, but regardless, happy.
Good job and I’ll see you around.
