My twin brothers are certified meatatarians. This is what they call themselves because where vegetarians love veggies, they love their meat with equal ardor. This is why Bondi and Bourke in BGC is the perfect spot for them because the roasted prime rib-eye here will definitely fill their tummies to the brim. Bondi&Bourke is an oasis where guests can enjoy a quintessential Modern Australian, all-day experience, headed by award-winning chef, Wade Watson.
We started with the Warm Mushroom Salad which was filled with microgreens. When I initially saw it, I was hesitant because I saw a lot of greens and I wasn't really a big fan of salad but I actually took a second heaping of this. The mushroom was complemented by the many microgreens that you see in the photo. It wasn't icky to eat. It was really appetizing.
The foie gras was my favorite and also the favorite of my brother. It was only recently that I started to fall in love with foie gras but I fell hard. These 3 you see in the photo? I ate all of it by myself.
The prawn cocktail was good but I really have a slight aversion to cold shrimp. It's not this dish. It's me. Really.
Before the main star was served, we had the Lebanese Chicken Skewers with Yogurt Sauce on a bed of tomato and cucumber salsa which was wonderfully refreshing and really tasty. It may look simple but trust me when I say that I had 2 skewers of this and I wanted more.
Now to wash down all the calories we had, we tried out their smoothies. My brother had the cranberry which I had a sip of and felt my body instantly recoil from. Apparently, it was too healthy for me so I had the mango-blueberry smoothie which was quite sweet.
I also ordered the Cafe Latte and this was really good. If I wasn't experiencing some acidity issue, I would have gotten 5 cups minimum.
We ended our lunch with the Sticky Toffee Pudding and this was where we were a little confused. Perhaps because it was cooked one after the other, one ended up a little dry and the other was perfect. Thankfully, I got the perfect version haha. This wasn't too sweet and I finished once piece all by myself.
My brother, Chef Kirk and I, also had champagne. It's amazing that my tummy didn't go bad from trying out so many different drinks.
Thank you so much Chef Wade Watson for hosting this wonderful lunch. It was truly gastronomic.
