    Experience a family day in Canggu accompanied by delicious food and drinks at The Joglo House...

    It was a sunny day and the traffic to Canggu was quite busy, just like any other day in the midweek. But as my family and I arrived at The Joglo restaurant and walked into its dining area, a thought crossed my mind, “This is the place where I want to be on my next lazy weekend!” I mean, how could I not love this place where almost everything is available under one roof?

    The Joglo is nestled amidst Canggu’s lively neighborhood. It is known for its whole nutritious food, but it also offers a variety of dining experiences in every corner. Under this gigantic Javanese teakwood roof, The Joglo welcomes everyone and makes sure that their guests have everything they need. It does not only serve as a restaurant presenting delicious Indonesian and western food, but it is also a tropical café for guests to enjoy local coffee, juices and cocktails with a spacious kid’s playground on one of the corners to keep the little ones busy and a wholefood market on the other corner for guests to find organic food. There is also a Yoga and Pilates studio at the rooftop.

    The space is multifunctional and becomes some kind of a melting pot where different crowds from every part of Bali, from families, couples, fitness enthusiasts to wholefoods lovers, come to unwind.

    Dining In
    Before we went to The Joglo, some of my friends already gave recommendations on the food. So, we followed their suggestions and ordered the signature Nasi Campur. We were also tempted to try a little bit of the Western flavor, and we decided to have the most recommended one – the Mahi-mahi Steak served with aglio e olio and pecorino, drizzled with lemon caper sauce.

    For those who love spicy Asian food, the Nasi Campur (Rp. 45,000) is the perfect choice. It is different from any other Nasi Campur on the island that I’ve ever tasted – The Joglo’s Nasi Campur is more flavorful, even spicier than I expected. And even before I took my first bite, I could smell the delicious aroma from the dish that worked up my appetite. The Mahi-mahi Steak was also our favorite. The lemon caper sauce gave a fresh and sour twist to the whole dish. The portion is just right and it is available at Rp. 95,000.

    Another must-have here is the Seared Tenderloin where a juicy grilled tenderloin cut is served with soft baked baby potato and three choices of homemade sauce; mushroom, black pepper and broccoli puree sauce. The latter was the champion for us as the broccoli puree sauce complemented the steak perfectly. Some of the yogis sitting next to our table ordered a pan of thin crispy crust Vegetariana Pizza, and we just couldn’t resist ordering the same dish. The pizza consists of mushrooms, slices of eggplant, onion, bell pepper and mixed veggies, topped with fresh homemade tomato sauce – even a carnivore like me loved every bite of it.

    As I indulged our last meal, I took a look around and fell even more in love with the ambience of this dining spot. Even when the day was hot, the breeze from the trees surrounding us was perfect to accompany our meal time. At the end of our lunch time, I decided to freshen up a little bit with a refreshing drink – The Barbados Vodka which is an orange juice mixed with grenadine and a little drop of vodka was excellent to complete my dining experience. And while sipping my drink, I was sure that I wanted to bring my family back here. Maybe on my next visit, we would also join the Pilates and Yoga classes to burn some calories, while our little ones play at the kid’s playground. How does that sound?
