Sea Circus is a quirky and colourful café located on Jalan Kayu Aya. If you feel like having a healthy breakfast or a cheeky cocktail, this is the place to go. Just a short walk from popular spots such as Bodyworks Day Spa and Potato Head Beach Club, you couldn’t miss the creative artwork painted on their shopfront.
On a busy day of exploring what Seminyak had to offer, my family and I popped into Sea Circus for light refreshments and snacks. After browsing various Instagram images and perusing through the menu, we decided to order the Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa (3 for 110 000 rupiah). The tacos came out on a wooden board, with three side dishes of guacamole, mango salsa and jalapenos. When combined together, the soft taco tasted fresh and delicious, and we were very satisfied with the flavours.
My sister Joan, ordered an Acai Smoothie (65 000 rupiah), which was topped with banana, strawberry and bee pollen. Joan still claims today, that this is the best Acai smoothie she’s ever had, and she's tried quite a few. She was also pretty disappointed she didn’t come back to try their Acai bowl for brekky.
After hearing how good the frozen margaritas were at Sea Circus, I ordered the Passion fruit & Guava Margarita (90 000 rupiah), which is made of Jose Cuervo tequila, passionfruit, guava, triple sec and lime. Mum decided on the Strawberry and Lychee Margarita (90 000 rupiah) made of Jose Cuervo tequila, strawberry, lychee, triple sec & lime. Both the cocktails were strong, icey and refreshing, just right for Bali’s extremely humid weather.
To finish off we tried the Hot Churros with Dark Chocolate Dipping Sauce (45 000 rupiah), which were quite average. Not something I would order again, as they tasted premade and not very fresh.
On a separate occasion we came back for a few more refreshments, and my sister ordered another Acai Smoothie. I’ve forgotten the rest of the names but they ranged between 25 000 to 30 000 rupiah and can be served as a granita (frappe) or ice-cold juice.
Sea Circus have a menu with such variety, there is something for everyone at an inexpensive price. If I’m ever holidaying in Bali again, I’d definitely come back to try more of their dishes.
