5. Two Fingers
A sophisticated Cali-Mex spot, Two Fingers displays a cheeky concept by the same group that brought you Nude in Canggu, Kembali Bumbak, and Front Café Pererenan.
Two Fingers promises you a fun night of devouring burritos and sipping on sexy martinis. Insider’s note: there’s no sloppy nachos, no ponchos, sombreros, nor Mariachi blasting.
Go big with their signature serve, “Two Finger Banquet” packed with guacamole and chips, your choice of two tacos, jalapeno poppers, charred street corn and a cheesy quesadilla stack.
