Hands down, the best lunch I’ve had in a seriously long time!
On our first day in Bondi Junction, my sister and I sat inside Bondi Harvest on Oxford Street, in a small booth where we had views to the inside of Westfield Mall (meaning we could people watch) and also amongst a very relaxed “farm yard style” dining setting.
The lunch menu is relatively small with only a list of several salads to choose from, added protein options and a few sandwiches too. But the options that are on the menu, are incredible! Each of the available salads are on display by the counter for customers to see as they walk in.
We were starving from our plane trip from Perth, so ordered straight away! Thankfully the staff were very efficient and friendly too! I ordered a half/half salad ($15) which allowed me to sample two different salads and added chargrilled chicken to it ($6). I went with the Quinoa Salad: A duo of quinoa, roasted pumpkin, fennel, chickpeas, salted peptic seeds, dates capers, goats cheese and salsa verde and the Chargrilled Mediterranean Salad: Pumpkin,sweet potato, heirloom carrots, eggplant, capsicum, baby broccolini, baby spinach, squash, zucchini, red onion, pine nuts all tossed in kale pesto. The chargrilled organic chicken breast was so very generous in size too- I couldn’t believe it was so big for only $6!
As you can see from the photos above and the different plates used- I’m guilty of returning to the same restaurant, twice in one week and ordering the EXACT SAME MEAL! It was so good, I couldn’t convince myself to switch it up. My sister sampled different salads and added proteins each time and she commented that she couldn’t choose a favourite as they were all so delicious. I actually think the second time I ate at Bondi Harvest that the portion size was even larger (which may be because we ate so late in the day and they were preparing to close up!)
