Venture through the best spots in Canggu with Good Indonesian Food Tour, the first gastronomic trip designer in Indonesia.
On Wednesday, 12 December 2018, Good Food Indonesian Tour invited several Media friends and Food Bloggers on a ‘GastroTrip at Nomadic Destination’. As the first gastronomic trip designer in Indonesia, Good Indonesian Food Tour has a vision to showcase Indonesia’s culinary heritage to the world. Good Indonesian Food Tour has recently announced the launching of their Year-End GastroTrip with 14 variable activities officially available. They aim to take well-culture food aficionados and travelers to an immersive culinary excursion to spend the last moments of 2018 on a fresh path to the three most culturally iconic cities in Indonesia; Bali, Yogyakarta, and Jakarta.
Today, millennial travelers are craving for more authentic and engaging travel experiences when exploring new destinations. They want to immerse themselves in the authentic local lifestyle, customs and culture of these places they travel to, to have a connection with the people and discover the core of the culture of a destination. Food is a large aspect of travelling as it is a way for travelers to learn the history and culture of the destination they travel to.
The GastroTrip that was offered during the trip was the ‘Canggu Instafood Hunting with Skutis’ program which presented the invitees with an immersive journey to explore the sights, sounds and rich flavors of Indonesia through three of Canggu’s most popular nomadic dining spots whilst riding electric scooters. The guests got the chance to savor local cuisines presented with an international twist on a 3-hour tour. The first stop during the trip was Parachute, a hip new restaurant that is famous for its homemade fresh breads and pastries along with delectable spreads and selections of coffee. Next stop of the tour was Warung Gouthe, which serves authentic comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests had the chance to try their famous grilled chicken, fish and beef skewers, served with French fries and sautéed garlic green beans. The third stop of the tour was to the vegan joint the Shady Shack. The Shady Shack offers a wide range of delicious healthy food where guests had the pleasure of trying their best-selling Tempe Burger.
