Vinny’s Warung opened in 2017 in Berawa and has just sprouted a new location in Batu Bolong, Canggu. While the menu is 100% vegan, the underlying philosophy is rooted in the celebration of authentic Balinese and Indonesian recipes made with fresh, nutritious ingredients. All produce is locally sourced, certified organic, and only pure, homemade coconut oil is used in the cooked meals. Unlike many vegan restaurants in the area who strive to make vegan food more palatable for the average consumer, often at the expense of the nutritional value of the food, Vinny’s maintains a plant-based menu while successfully utilizing traditional spices that allow natural flavours to shine through without anything artificial. The dishes here are preservative and additive free, 100% plant-based, 90% gluten free, and allergy-friendly. There are also a wide variety of homemade sauces and condiments available which amazingly recreate some of the most popular commercial sauces without anything artificial, and often with unique twists that actually improve these widely loved favourites. Everything is made with love by a team of positive, hardworking local staff who are passionate about the philosophy and enjoy working together to create regular new recipes. The vibes here are all about family, community and well-rounded sustainability, making Vinny’s stand out from the rest of Canggu’s plant-based crowd.
