The Fat Turtle- Breakfast in Bali
BEACH, SLEEP, BRUNCHHHHHHH, REPEAT. If that's not how you're doing Bali, sorry NOT sorry but you are doing it ALL wrong. With amazing cafes and ballin brunch joints, do yourself a favor and by pass the breakfast included " at your resort and start your day off RIGHT. Whatever your morning vibes are diggin there is undoubtedly a brunch spot for you! Whether you wake up wanting something fresh and fruity or a fatty feast you will be anything BUT underwhelmed with the wide variety of warungs (Indonesian style family-run restaurants), organic cafes and killer coffee shops.
Located in Seminyak, Bali, The Fat Turtle is a wicked coffee joint that pumps out fab coffee (obviously) and cray cray breakfast that will have you skipping out the front door with a satisfied sweet tooth and a full camera roll! Serving up a wide variety of divine breakfast dishes and delectable baked goods, I guarantee, one visit won't be enough.
I definitely liked it a latteeeeeeeeee.... But seriously. Their coffee is amazing. Obviously the perfect opening to an even better breakfast.
Incase you didn't know, I'm obsessed with CRUFFINS.... The Fat Turtle must have heard ;)
Salted Egg Yolk Cruffin
Ever had a dim sum custard bun? Picture that oozy sweet custard inside a CRUFFINNNNNNN. I can die happy now. The pastry was perfectly flaky on the outside and chewy on the inside and delightfully enriched with the sweet custard filling piped down the middle.
Switchin it up with something savory...
Kaffir Lime Leaf Sweet Corn Fritters
So if you are at all familiar with traditional Indonesia food, you'll know that they make AMAZING sweet corn fritters (also known as Perkedel Jagung). The Fat Turtle took these amazing crispy fritters to the next level by infusing them with fragrant kaffir lime leaves (which are used in many Thai and Indonesia dishes) topping them with crispy bacon, perfectly poached eggs, avocado hollandaise and tomato relish. NOM NOM NOMMMMMMM. This has to be one of the best breakfasts I have had... Ever. Full stop. We out.
Now for the star of the show...
Red Velvet Pancakes
OH MY WORD. AS IF TWO OF MY FAVORITE THINGS IN THE WORLD COULD GET ANY BETTER.... Well they mated each other so yeah... They just got better. There are no words. Red velvet cake meets pancakes. This truly is a sight for sore eyes! This sweet treat was topped with cream cheese mousse (WOW), chocolate cookie crumbs, and vanilla ice cream. You're welcome. If there is one thing I am thankful for in this world, it's people who make it socially acceptable to eat dessert for breakfast. I am forever indebted.
The Fat Turtle NEEDS to bechecked out whilst in Bali. I can guarantee that you won't think twice about the hotel breakfast you passed on because frankly, there is no chance it's topping this!
