Lacalita Bar y Cocina, sister to Seminyak’s Lacalaca Cantina Mexicana, is an evolution of modern Mexican dining in Canggu. This food is fresh, and drinks are an art form. The walls are full of colour and ceilings dripping in flowers accompanied by rock n roll tunes through the ages. Their dining experience is made for sharing and if you don’t have anyone to share with, you’ve always got their Jalapeño infused tequila.
When Mexican is done well it’s full of flavour and verve. It’s a joy to smell, see and taste. And, because it’s simple, it’s wholesome and healthy. Lacalita are proponents of this good type of Mexican. The menu is peppered with bits of awesome, as rumour has it: the ahi poke ceviche is badass, the carnitas are sublime and the corn on the cob covered in Parmesan is killer. Drinks are beautifully prepared and there are some dangerous takes on the margarita, which are worthy of a trip to Canggu should you not already be hip enough to living or hanging there.
