In the heart of Canggu, on your way to Batu Bolong beach, you will find a small restaurant called Fika. Home to gravlax and meatballs, Fika is a gulp of Nordic freshness in the Bali heat. It’s been three months since they first opened their doors to the Canggu crowd and their Swedish-influenced dishes have fast become favorites among local foodies.
In the daytime, Fika is a casual Scandinavian-inspired café, serving tasty Western fare using the freshest produce, such as gravlax bagels, hickory smoke chicken sandwiches, SoCal-style red rice bowls, acai berry bowls, chia pannacotta and two types of pancakes; thick and creamy, ricotta pancakes and thinner Swedish pancakes.
At 6pm, the place transforms into a warm, cozy restaurant with lit candles and a different menu that offers a choice of a la carte, two or three course meals. Dinner essentially revolves around home cooking and Nordic comfort food with a modern twist, and the menu changes seasonally. That being said, the Swedish meatballs, served with their homemade berry jam and rustic mashed potatoes, is their signature dish and will stay on the menu as long as Fika stays in Canggu.
