When we got too hot in Sanur, which if you read my last post, you know was very often, we’d duck into cafes and restaurants for a dessert or granita. I’m not a foodie by any means, I’ll eat anything from anywhere, and when I find a restaurant I like, I go back again and again (which I know makes me a shame to travelers everywhere.)
My favorite place in Sanur was Grocer & Grind. I had at least one lime granita per day, and the space was open and airy. I was hooked the first time we tried this place, we posted up often using their speedy wifi and I ate their Sweet Corn Fritters and Ricotta Hotcakes more than I care to admit.
Another place we loved was Three Table Spoons, which is right up the street from Grocer & Grind. Their outdoor patio was covered in these tiles I just died over. If you make it there, my perfect meal looks like this: a Watermelon + Mint Fizz, Twice Baked Beef Bao (drooling), and Laklak – mini pancakes with fruit and coconut ice cream – to top it off. The prices were great (the entire meal I mentioned above was about $6) and even though the cafe was open to the street, it was quiet.
If a stellar view is what you’re after, try the beach side restaurant in front of the Puri Santrian Hotel. I actually don’t know what it’s called, but walk down to the hotel and you’ll see this little gem. I’d read they served an inexpensive afternoon tea (like $8 for two people, which is insane for a full tea), but we were never around to have it. The main draw here is the view of one of the cleanest of Sanur’s beaches, the food is just average.
