There’s a new seaside mermaid lair that’s made a splash in the Canggu social scene, Gu mer-babes and mer-dudes, get to know Fat Mermaid Bali.
Unlike anything this hood has seen before, this commanding double-storey building is architecturally designed with a mezzanine level overlooking the central bar area – perfect for people watching the crowd below. iphones out, for interior checks all your ‘Gram-lovin’ boxes; industrial bare-brick walls paired with tropical textiles and that lush centrepiece floor-to-ceiling jungle wall feature that every Canggu mermaid needs on their Instagram feed.
Open from the early AM for a brunch fit for ocean-loving champions, swim on in after your morning beach sesh for healthy & satisfying feed. The Legendary Brekky will leave no mermaid or merdude hungry, and the Octo San Scramble is genuinely the best scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon to be seen this side of the ocean. The Barong Barong Benedict is the obvious go-to choice for the savoury-inclined, while the Kelapa Treat chia seed pudding is a perfect sweet balance to the rest of the feast. Selamat Pagi indeed! It’s a flippin’ fabulous spot to start your Canggu day.
Come evening, bask under the neon lights and settle into a booth for a night of live music acts and tasty International cuisine. Fat Mermaid boasts a well-rounded menu, with a selection of healthy, organic and veggo-friendly dishes, as well as all those naughty-but-nice options for Canggu mermaids of all shapes and sizes! Think burgers, steaks, pastas & salads, all enjoyed along to a killer imported wine list (oh heyyy! New Zealand Sav Blanc!). There’s high chairs and a kids menu for the little swimmers too, making Fat Mermaid a total family affair.
With a daily cocktail happy hour, some dope DJ event nights, and their weekly acoustic sessions, Fat Mermaid is bringing a new kinda sophistication to the Batu Bolong party scene. A must-try on every Mermaid & Mermans Canggu sand-bucket list.
