TRIED & TESTED
Slow escape in Canggu
21 July 2017
There’s a guard in front of the restaurant helping me to cross the over busy Seminyak road on Bali. The black corner building with a lot of plants and scooters in front of the door looks very promising. Welcome to The Corner House Bali!
‘Oh yes’ is my first thought while entering The Corner House. A restaurant run by a husband- and wife team. Photographer Matt Neville from Australia and Fashion designer Magali Pascal from France. The restaurant has a colonial atmosphere. Concrete walls, a dark brown bar, fans on the ceiling and a beautiful staircase to the first floor. The restaurant is busy with people coming in for just a cup of Revolver coffee or a delicious breakfast. On the menu you will find easy going dishes like a club sandwich, burger or salads. The corn fritters are the big hit. Everyone seems to order them. At night they serve a delicious chocolate fondant.
Inside you will find a big reading table with magazines. They have a small, yet magical garden with maybe five or six tables. Surrounded by a small temple for the daily offerings. On the first floor they have a bar that comes at life at night. The restaurant is located in Seminyak. On Laksmana street, who’s nickname is Eat Street. Imagine a street full of restaurants and shops going all the way down to the beach.
