Traveljunkieindonesia.com – I first heard of this place through a good friend of mine in Bali who says it’s one of her favorite places in Sydney. Oh Jesus, Destination NSW and Garuda Indonesia took me to North Bondi Italian Food (NBIF) for a perfecto lunch. Lucky travel blogger!
“My favourite ingredients is restraint.” – Robert Marchetti.
Eat, Drink, Travel, Life!!! North Bondi Italian Food is a new age Roman Trattoria. Their used only line caught fish, local seasonal produce and free range ethically raised meat chemical and stress free.
I came here and loved the Location across the street from Bondi beach. It has a great view of the ocean if you are seated by the window or in the front of the restaurant. The decor is gorgeous and the view is amazing. PERFECTO!
All of the wait staff wore blue overall covers and white T-shirts and there was a steady flow of food coming from the kitchen next to the bar.
The vibe is lively, loud and has a casual beach vibe. When I eat here I can taste the ocean, the sunshine, the people, and the earth. Their food is lovely.
Well, for our entree. We enjoyed the Crispy Potatoes with Garlic, Rosemary and the Arancini and 3 bottles of red wine.
A little later, my mains arrived – Spaghetti “Cartoccio Style” with Spanner Crab, and Spaghetti Pomodoro was very nice and everyone else seemed to think their meals were ok, although the starters were the highlight of the meal.
My friends mains – Rigatoni, Berkshine Pork Sausages Sauce, Wild N.T. Barramundi, etc. And, for dolci, we enjoyed “My Idea of Gelato Affogato”, Tiramisu, Baked Dark Chocolate Pot, etc. It was a great party!
The dining experience is one of no bookings, paper mat menus, unisex toilets and grab your own cutlery. I felt in Seminyak, Bali. I love all this about NBIF. I think we all do because it’s what keeps it real.
And you know what? NBIF is an ambassador and a proud supporter of animalsaustralia.org fighting for the legal rights for animals and an end to factory farming. Buonappetito!
So I do plan to come back for summer dinner the next time here!
Happy Sustainable Travels!
