Canggu favorite Billy Ho returns as Asian boteco after pandemic slumber
Already a fixture in the Batu Bolong food and beverage scene, Billy Ho was forced to close for the past few years due to the pandemic. Formerly an izakaya gastropub, Billy Ho has now re-emerged from its slumber and has reinvented itself as a late night Asian boteco. Think a clandestine space that has embraced darker shades, is decorated with moody lighting and plenty of bronze accents. The menu, too, has undergone an overhaul, with the focus moving away from lunch service towards dinner and late-night nibbles. Still, Billy Ho dishes embrace a distinct Asian edge, but snacks are now at the forefront, and the menu is divided into Dim Sum, Sushi and Nigiri, Small Plates, and Large. You have sweet tooth? Protip: Try their Japanese milk bun and be prepared to have your mind blown.
Opens everyday from 5pm to 12am. Find Billy Ho here.
