Anatoli, Bondi Junction

The last time I went to the Eastern hotel was awhile ago, but this multi-level venue connected to Westfield Bondi Junction has since been revamped into a foodie haven. It now features The Publican on the ground floor, Anatoli on the first, Chimmi’s rum cantina on the second and El Topo bar on the rooftop.

The Stuffed Beaver, Bondi

Tucked away just a couple of blocks from the iconic Bondi Beach is Canadian-style pub, The Stuffed Beaver. As you walk in, you can already tell that there is no room for pretentiousness here – just a casual space for mates, sports-watching and rock’n'roll appreciation, coupled with some finger-licking messy food and drinks.

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, Bondi

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is the iconic restaurant perched on top of the cliffs above the famous Bondi Icebergs swimming pool and it has been on my list to visit for a while.

Paper Planes, Bondi

Paper Planes is a trendy Japanese fusion restaurant by the picturesque Bondi Beach which is located in a modern arcade that also houses Miss Chu’s.

We have been wanting to come over to try the Paper Planes menu for awhile so when the opportunity to try their new ramens for the launch of their Ramen Nights popped up, we were keen to see what it was all about.

Truck Stop, Bondi

Last year there has been a massive influx of food trucks on the Sydney dining scene. One of our favourites is the Eat Art Truck which offers a range of delicious snacks (like their amazing Shichimi Chicken Wings) within the Sydney CBD. They’re also one of the first trucks to open a permanent joint so you don’t have to go hunting for them anymore.
