Lunch in avocado heaven at Avocado Factory
The world has gone crazy for avocado and do you blame anyone for loving this smooth and healthy deliciousness! You may spread it on bread or even on your face or in your hair. Its one of natures gifts that we can use in so many ways and is good for so many things!
Here in Bali the avocados drop from the trees above you and so its no surprise that you’ll find avocado on so many menus in cafes and restaurants. However there is one cafe that overrules them all. Its Avocado Factory that does true to its name and has created a menu that includes avocado in every single dish. Here you’ll truly find yourself in avocado heaven.
I just love getting comfy in the laid back chairs as I take a sip of my coffee while overlooking the green rice fields. Its a beautiful spot and the perfect place to hang out and enjoy a breakfast or lunch.
As I mentioned before the menu is based on avocado, so anything your order automatically becomes delicious! The menu offers everything from avocado juices to avocado salads and ‘Avo Nasi Campur‘ – a traditional Balinese dish made with a twist.
My favourite juice to start the day with is the ‘Avo good day‘ juice (35k Idr/ 1.75 pounds), which consists of avocado, spinach, pineapple and mint. Its super refreshing and a little sweet while you still get all of the green goodness to give your body a great boost at the start of your day.
After my juice I always start my day with a coffee and as the owners of the cafe are Italian I would expect a killer coffee! And I must say that they have done their country proud! In the morning I usually get a soya cappuccino here. I do find it rather hard to get a nice coffee in Bali, but Avocado Factory is a really good spot!
For brunch I love getting the ‘Avo hummus‘ (60k Idr/3.10 pounds) which consists of avocado hummus and an avocado rose served on a mixed seed sourdough topped with crunchy chickpeas, green peas and red radish. Whats originally a delicious and simple dish is made a little more interesting with a little twist to add some extra crunchiness and flavours.
If I fancy a salad I usually go for the ‘Avo tofu salad‘ (65k Idr/3.40 pounds) or ‘Avo makes my hearth beat salad‘ (60k Idr/3.10 pounds). They are both super delicious and full of colour, flavour and textures!
Where to go
The Avocado Factory is open everyday from 7am – 11.30pm and you’ll find them in Canggu, North Kuta, Bali. Enjoy an amazing early breakfast as the perfect start of your day or end it with some avocado goodness for dinner! Im sure you’ll fall in love with this little piece of avocado heaven just as much as I did!
