Zebra Green is located just outside the hustle and bustle of Bondi Junction Westfield on Bronte Road. We turned up one Saturday night to find a quirkily decorated diner with an eclectic mix of furniture and an array of spaces to choose from, from the charming courtyard out the back to a cosy loft bar area for lounging upstairs.
We started off our dinner with some crispy Hand Cut Chips, triple cooked and paired with your choice of some strong aioli with seeded mustard and a range of Zebra Green’s house made sauces for you to mix and match to your tastebuds’ content. From the quality of their sauces, its easy to see why they’re known as the sauce experts – my favourite sauce was their addictive Smokey Apple Sweet Chilli, while the boy preferred the Burger Relish and the Habanero.
Hand Cut Chips, $8
Next up were the Corn Fritters which came on a bed of avocado and were coated in more of the Smokey Apple Sweet Chilli sauce. Once again, these were fried to perfection and complemented well by the smashed avocado.
Corn Fritters, $9
We then got our hands (very) dirty with the Chicken Wings, which were either coated in sticky delicious smokey BBQ sauce or a tangy habanero with lime chilli sauce which I preferred for more of a kick. As if there wasn’t enough sauce on these wings already, they were then dunked in the ranch dressing on the side for maximum satisfaction.
Wings 2 Ways, $12
Our tastebuds were already primed from all the flavoursome entrees, and the strong flavours and textures continued with the Pork Belly which had a super crispy crackling contrasting with the softness of the fatty pork belly meat. All that porky goodness was cut through with a side of sweet potato puree and some roast fennel and kale.
Pork Belly, $23
The boy went for the Humpty Doo Saltwater Barramundi which was pan-fried and finished with a side of corn puffs (very similar to the corn fritters we had for entrees), surprisingly delicious crushed peas, tomato and lemon. We found the fish very fresh with crispy, well-seasoned skin on it. The boy particularly liked the softness of the crushed peas and how the crunchy skin gave it some texture.
Humpty Doo Saltwater Barramundi, $23
Zebra Green is a quiet achiever, delivering unexpectedly good value for casual dining in Bondi – their dishes are delicious and well-executed, and the laidback atmosphere makes it a great spot to catch up with friends either in the sunny courtyard during the day or for a cocktail nightcap in the evening.
