Healthy food never tasted so good. Located in a two-storey treehouse overlooking vast rice paddies at Batu Bolong, Canggu, a meal at Betelnut cafe is a treat for both the eyes and taste buds! There’s a whole range of healthy yet scrumptious food choices to choose from, such as towering burgers served with a side of fat chips, to HUGE (I’m not kidding here) bowls of fresh salads. We recommend opting for the Big Betelnut Salad, a bad**s that boasts a combination of four of their special salads – the best of both worlds, amirite?

The menu at this all-day diner is quite comprehensive, featuring breakfast, lunch, dinner, and happy hour menus (plus a wide range of apéritifs).
Pssst, though the Corn Fritter Stack might not sound that appealing, it is to-die-for and it’s one dish we can’t stop raving about. Similar to vegetable fritters, these tasty delights are fried to perfection – crisp on the outside yet moist on the inside. The fritters are then layered with halloumi and stewed tomatoes before being topped with a perfectly poached egg. UH-may-zinggg.

Be sure to order an Acai Berry Bowl and their Polenta Fries with Truffle Aioli and Parmesan.
