Five Monkeys - Fresh Burgers & Cold Beers
Its all about burgers. Five Monkeys has become the go-to burger joint in Legian for its generously sized burgers, soft homemade buns and luscious honey barbeque sauce. Centrally located, it is a great break away from boutique shopping along Jalan Legian, with its excellent selection of local and international beers.
The menu is simple, offering a choice of tasty burgers and hotdogs and refreshing drinks throughout the day, all prepared in an open kitchen. You can enjoy your meals outside on a shaded counter or within the air-conditioned interior featuring retro Coca-Cola and beer ads on its walls.
The large menu is straightforward; you have a selection of six homemade burgers made from fresh beef, fish or chicken patties, all served with the bar' signature sauce and your selection of sides, namely French fries, curly fries and onion rings. Seating options include at the counter on tall stools, bar-style, where you can view your burgers being prepared in the open kitchen and even chat with the friendly staff. You can also pick a spot among the colourful recycled-wood tables that add to the quirkiness of this joint. On the walls are framed posters of rock bands and graphic artwork with parodies on 60s magazine ads and famous paintings, such as Mona Lisa holding a cigar.
For those who wish to stay a bit longer, further distraction comes in the form of a large LED TV showing live international sport feeds. You can also opt for the shaded alfresco counters at the front where you can enjoy watching the world go by.
