Because you can never have too many avocados, The Avocado Factory in Canggu spreads nature’s green gift on everything - cocktails included!
It’s not without reason that Canggu is officially the coolest neighbourhood in Bali. Not only is it home to fabulous bars, spas and some of the most popular surf spots anywhere, this coastal ‘hood is also packed to the tropical brim with incredible restaurants and cafes. And if there’s one name that’s always at the top of our must-eat Canggu list, it’s The Avocado Factory.
You see, at this all-avocado bar, they believe that you can never have enough avocado in your life – and we couldn’t agree more. They honour nature’s green gift in the best way possible – by smothering it on everything. From brekkie and brunch to lunch and even in their coffee, everyone’s fave fruit is the star of the scrummy show here, making an appearance throughout the all-day menus.
The first avocado bar in Southeast Asia
Founded by an avo-obsessed crew who share the same passion for healthy food and natural ingredients, The Avocado Factory is unlike any other restaurant and cafe on the island. It’s the first avocado bar not only in Bali and Indonesia, but also across Southeast Asia – and it’s answered all of our avo-prayers. All of your fave breakfast and lunch classics are taken up a notch here, with a twist and touch of this mighty superfood. Think Avo Island Smoothie Bowls and avo-infused pancakes, to Poke Bowls, Avo Hummus, and of course, the mind-blowing Avo King Burger.
But that’s not all. To top it all off, every item on the menu is crafted with creativity, featuring a visually stunning presentation for both your eyes and the ‘gram. And to really refine that vision of avocado perfection, The Avocado Factory is located amongst the stunning rice fields of Canggu, meaning this easy breezy restaurant comes with dreamy views and an emerald green vista.
New menu: From brunch to cocktails
True to form, The Avocado Factory hasn’t rested on its laurels – instead, these avo experts have found even more ways to feed our avocado fix, with the anticipated launch of their exciting new menu. Throughout brekkie and brunch, you’ll want to try the new Avo Cheese Croissant XL with avocado, cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, and slightly spicy mustard seeds. Or, if you’re a fan of truffles, the creamy Truffle Benedict will be right up your alley, loaded with mushrooms, avocado, poached eggs, truffled hollandaise and black sesame. YUM. And as for lunch? The new Grilled Market Fish with stir fried purple cabbage and an avocado cream is our fave, closely followed by the Viva Las Vegas Burger with mushrooms, avocado, onions, cheese, rucola, barbecue sauce and mayo.
Of course, with founder slash professional mixologist Adis Dozovic behind the bar, you can bet your Rupiah that the new list of cocktail creations here are both epic and based on the humble avocado, too. Rum lovers, try the Avo Pokie Pokie, using caramelised banana, avocado mixed with white rum, fresh lime juice, and spices. Or go tropical with the Avo-Mojito, mixed with avocado stone washed-buttered gin, lime, mint, and soda, served with a frozen avocado stone. And finally, the Basil Crush had us at coconut liqueur, with avocado stone washed-buttered vodka, lime, basil, and a pineapple-avocado-stone infused syrup. Cocktails and avos? Yes please!
As if smothering avocados on everything wasn’t enough to keep us on our hungry toes, this Canggu gem also has morals. Not only healthy and natural, every ingredient used at The Avocado Factory is organic and locally-sourced, as part of its socially-responsible business initiative. And besides working hand-in-hand with local farmers, The Avocado Factory is also dedicated to making everything in-house as much as possible, from its freshly-baked brioche buns to home-roasted coffee beans and handcrafted kombucha. And for even more bonus points? The Avocado Factory also aims to be as sustainable and zero-waste as possible, contributing to a greener Bali by being 92% plastic free and using eco-friendly packaging. Amen to that!
