Revolutionary Mantis Dish Ignites Canggu’s Culinary Scene!

Khao Soi - A Journey of Taste through Northern Thailand.Nestled on the lively Batu Bolong street of Canggu, a beacon of Southeast Asian culinary innovation emerges. Mantis, a restaurant celebrated for its daring culinary exploits, has once again pushed the boundaries of flavour and experience. With the introduction of Khao Soi, a creamy Northern Thai curry that is as complex as it is comforting, Mantis invites patrons on a culinary journey that transcends borders.

The brainchild of a visionary group of young Indonesians, Mantis has carved a niche in the competitive landscape of Canggu’s dining scene. The restaurant’s design, a vibrant collaboration with the esteemed Brian Gondo of Gondo-Jules Co, encapsulates the essence of a fun summer vibe. Its open façade welcomes diners into a world where colours pop, and flavours explode, setting the stage for an unforgettable gastronomic adventure.

At the heart of Mantis’ menu lies Khao Soi, a dish that encapsulates the soul of Northern Thailand. Crafted with tender beef short ribs and a coconut broth that sings with subtlety and depth, this dish is a testament to the culinary prowess of Head Chef Naldi Budhyarto. Applying classical French techniques to Southeast Asian flavours, Budhyarto has created an innovative and authentic menu. The Seafood Khao Soi, the latest addition to this culinary lineup, weaves succulent seafood and fragrant coconut curry prawn broth, crowned with crispy fried noodles and fresh accents of mustard greens and lime.
