Bondi Hardware

A stone throw away from the beach, Bondi Hardware was buzzing on a cool autumn night.

The ceiling looks like upside down planter boxes, especially with the hanging plants coming out of them. I found the small water glasses rather cool, it made me feel like I was about to have a shot of vodka each time I went to pick it up for a sip of water.

For the real deal, my friend sipped on a Section Seventy Seven (white rum blended with Pama Pomegranate liqueur, coconut, pineapple, lychees and ice) while I went for the Green Grass (Zubrowka Bison Grass Vodka with pear syrup, lime & home-made green apple juice served very long over rocks with a splash of soda), it was refreshing but definitely had a kick to it.

We weren't very hungry so decided to order a few dishes to share, starting with the Tuna ceviche with avocado & toasted sour dough toasts. For those who are not familiar with ceviche, it is a dish typically made of raw fish marinated in citrus juices such as lemon or lime and spiced with chilli peppers, served with ingredients that compliments its flavours. A simple but amazing dish.

The Nicoise of ocean trout (with tomato, olives, capers, kipfler potato, green beans, boiled egg & white balsamic dressing) not only look good but tasted fabulous. Oh and the Chargrilled Mediterranean vegetables with rosemary & garlic dressing, one word, WOW.

This is a great place to chill with friends, it does get pretty loud as the room fills up, especially during the weekends, but the great cocktails and delicious food, plus super friendly staff makes it all worthwhile.
