  • Makan Yuk!

    Living in one of the largest, if not the largest archipelago of the planet, one could think it’s easy finding a variety of local cuisines at every corner of the streets. Nay.

    I’m a firm believer that food is art, this is particularly evident in Japanese cuisine. Meticulous presentation and flavor combination. If you want to experience just how beautiful a meal could be, go to Indigo, the latest Japanese restaurant in Berawa Canggu. Step inside and the intimate experience begins immediately.
