One of the trendiest spots in Canggu is Deus Ex Machina. Here you can wonder around in a shop in which you can buy anything that you can call trendy! From surfboards and backpacks to bikes and watches. Buy yourself a brand new surfboard then have a seat in the garden where you can enjoy a delicious burger to celebrate!
Deus Ex Machina has a great atmosphere and its an amazing spot for a delicious dinner and a beer! Or visit on my favourite night which happens to be ‘Tacos-N-Tatt-Teusday‘! Every Tuesday you can enjoy a delicious plate of tacos, a freshly made margarita and of course if you are lucky a whole new tattoo that will be done on the spot!
Tuesday nights aren’t the only fun nights as every day of the week there is a different event. From ‘Aperitivo Saturdays‘ to ‘Sunday roasts Sundays‘.
What I love
For breakfast I love getting the Açai Smoothie bowl (80k Idr/4.20 Gbp). It consists of blended açai with strawberry and banana topped with granola and fresh chia seeds. Its extremely refreshing and super fruity.
For a great lunch I usually get the ‘Pumpkin hummus on rye bread‘ (55k Idr/2.90 Gbp). The bread is thick and crunchy with an amazing pumpkin hummus, topped with sesame seeds and alfalfa – creating a perfect simple plate with delicious flavours.
If you are a pumpkin lover like I am I definitely recommend you to try the ‘Roast Pumpkin soup‘ (50k Idr/2.60 Gbp). This soup is an amazing lunch or perfect as a starter when having dinner. The soup is creamy, comforting and extremely flavoursome. Dip in some of the crunchy gluten free bread and you’ve got yourself a healthy and delicious meal!
When having dinner its always nice to enjoy the live music, great atmosphere and a drink with some comforting food. I personally love the ‘Vegetarian burger‘ (70k Idr/3.65 Gbp) they serve here as it tastes clean, healthy and delicious! The burger consists of a lentil patty topped with tomatoes, lettuce and mashed avocado. Its full of flavour and textures – crunchy bread, fresh tomatoes, smooth avocado and a deliciously flavoured lentil patty. It comes with a side of fries or a crunchy salad, I always choose the salad as for me it adds even more fresh flavours and of course some green goodness!
