The Best Warungs In Canggu
You could say that a trip to Bali wouldn’t be complete without eating in a local warung. Warung roughly translates to ‘shop’ or ‘café’. They offer cheap, delicious local food that will leave your tastebuds satisfied and your bellies full.
As always, not all warungs (cafes) are created equally. Some are much better than others and here are a few of our all-time favourites.
If you’re looking for a fantastic warung in Canggu then look no further than Warung Jaba. You can “help yourself” and pick a variety of foods from the self-service section. They have both regular and vegetarian options. Alternatively, you can choose a dish from the menu. Whatever option you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
We tend to mix it up. Sometimes we use the self-service, other times we choose from the menu. One of our favourites is the Ayam Lalapan; Fried chicken, Tofu, Tempe, rice & Sambal.
Example price: Ayam Lalapan: 30K
Warung Jaba Location
Memoh Warung is another of our favourite cheap eats in Canggu. This warung is different though. On the menu, you’ll find all the usual local dishes like Nasi Goreng and Mie Goreng. However, this place also offers a good range of healthy options with items such as wraps, sandwiches, smoothie bowls and Tempe burgers on their menu.
We can always recommend them for their great, cheap Nasi Goreng. However, the Feta Chili Wrap is also one of our favourites!
Warung Bu Mi
This warung comes highly regarded and for good reason. Warung Bu Mi offers a self-service option where you can choose from a good variety of local items. There are great options for both meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. The food comes hot and delicious making this another of the best warungs in Canggu.
Our top recommendation for this warung is to go crazy and pick whatever looks appetising. Trust us, you could choose one of everything and still get a crazy cheap meal.
So, this one might just be our favourite local warung in Canggu. The warung offers both the self-service and menu options just like other places on this list. So, what makes it different? Whilst the food in other warungs is amazing, Varunas food is incredible. Everything we’ve had comes hot, full of flavour and cheap. There’s a reason you can often find a queue (albeit a fast-moving queue) to eat here.
You’d find it hard to go wrong here. However, we do recommend the Honey Chicken, Shredded Chicken, Honey Tempe, Spicy Tofu and Mie Goreng.
Example cost: Per plate of food 20k-40k
Warung Local is a newer addition to the Canggu food scene. It serves up a mix of great local warung food, in a more Canggu cafe-esque setting. Think of it as a kind of local eating experienced, designed for those who don’t want a true local eating experience.
The name including ‘local’ is ironic, as we’re yet to see a local in there. However, that doesn’t take away from the great food they serve, plate after plate. You can choose a package, with a set amount of rice, meat and veg, or you can build your own plate. We built our own plate and absolutely loved their honey chicken, spicy tofu and tempe options!
Warung Sushi is another of our new favourites. And, another of the ‘not so authentic’ local warungs in Canggu. But, it does what it says on the tin…it’s a warung that sells sushi. Good sushi to be precise. Oh and cheap sushi, which is why we can’t leave it off of our best cheap eats in Canggu list!
If you’re a sushi fan then you must try it out. Becky, who loves it, says that it’s sushi good enough to rival anywhere. But we’ve also sampled the Chicken Katsu Curry and Gyoza, which were both beyond delicious.
Other cheap places to eat in Canggu
We know, it’s not always desirable to eat the same cheap local food every day. Especially not for both breakfast and dinner. Take a read of our favourite cheap places to eat in Canggu that offer something different. These places will be great for your appetite and your budget, we promise!
Roti Canai Street Kitchen
Roti Canai Street Kitchen is one place we can’t stay away from, it’s carbohydrate heaven! As their name suggests, their main draw is their roti. You’ll find both sweet and savoury roti options that are always wonderful on the tastebuds. They also offer smoothie bowls and local dishes like Nasi Goreng and Balinese Chicken Satay. The food is cheap and cheerful, who doesn’t love bread, right?
For the savoury option, we always choose the Roti Classic which comes with a small pot of dipping curry. Becky sometimes takes the sweet option and loves the Roti Nutella.
Satu Satu Coffee Company
This place has to be among the cheapest of places to eat in Canggu. Their omelettes, smoothie bowls and amazing coffee make for a wonderful cheap breakfast. You’ll know from the moment you arrive how popular Satu Satu is, it’s often busy but with enough tables for everyone. Their service is great too and you’ll never be left waiting.
We highly recommend their omelettes and coffee. At one point we were eating here every other day, not just because the price is low but because the quality is high. You won’t find a better value for money breakfast.
Now, Sizzle Wraps is something different but every bit as delicious as other places on this list. If you’re looking for cheap Mexican food in Canggu then this is your place! Their menu has everything from nachos, burritos, quesadillas, tacos, Mexican pizza and some really good cocktails.
We’ve tried almost one of everything on the menu and highly recommend the carnitas and veggie burrito. Go at happy hour to enjoy one of the cheap cocktails to go with your meal.
