Mar Bali Canggu
Officially opened to the public on 15 December 2021, Mar Bali aims to serve honest authentic seafood in a way that respects the seafood and its bounty.
The founders of Mar Bali feel that Bali’s lack of coastal Portuguese cuisine is a gap in the market for simple, well-made seafood.
Typical Portuguese Cuisine Style By Mar Bali
Mar Bali’s signature style of Portuguese cuisine is very strong, a style of dish using seawater to match the level of saltiness in the food with the salinity of the sea.
By using seawater as a cooking liquid, Mar Bali dishes retain the essence of the sea and bring the taste of the sea to the customer’s palette.
Trifecta is three simple spices, garlic, lemon, and olive oil. Either fish or shellfish will be prepared with three simple Portuguese spices.
After the food is prepared, guests will get a wide variety of international dipping sauces prepared by the Balinese kitchen team. Starting from the typical Balinese matah sauce to lemon sauce, butter, Mediterranean garlic.
Utilizing Local Fishermen
This restaurant is able to support the local fishing community. Sustainable fishing practices are also part of Mar Bali’s policy.
Only lobster above 250 grams, shrimp above 75 grams, shrimp over 25 grams, and fish over 10 kg are allowed to enter the menu.
As local fishermen rely heavily on seasonal ebb and flow, the kitchen team at Mar Bali is able to appreciate what nature has to offer year-round while ensuring a unique and affordable sea-to-table experience for their customers.
The Mar Bali team hopes this restaurant will not only serve as a complement to Canggu’s seafood scene but also as an opportunity to uplift local fishermen and workers.
