Japanese Sunday Brunch: Ji Terrace by the Sea
The lowdown: Every single Sunday at Ji Terrace by the Sea, this stunning Japanese fusion restaurant at Hotel Tugu Bali serves up a creative Japanese brunch menu alongside contemporary cocktails, panoramic ocean views, a slightly salty sea breeze and chill tropical tunes. It’s Canggu’s go-to Sunday grazing spot, with an affordable free-flow of fine wines and cocktails to boot. Hungry brunchers can feast on charcoal-grilled Yakitori, fresh sushi rolls, Wagyu steak with egg, Ahi tuna, beef tataki with garlic crisps and breakfast Udon, to name just a few. Pstt – don’t forget Ji’s Wasabi Bloody Mary to top it all off, and if you’re bringing the kids, there’s a dedicated corner with arts and crafts to keeps young ones occupied…
The deal: The brunch includes endless orders of Japanese bites with complimentary free-flow on selected non-alcoholic drinks. The (recommended) option of adding free-flow cocktails and wines is also available. The brunch runs from 11am – 3pm every Sunday.
