I have a very vague memory of Australia. Last time I was there was about 20 years ago. Sadly, I really don’t remember anything, most especially the food. I think I was too young to appreciate it back then.

Anyway, I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about Bondi & Bourke when it opened a new branch in BGC so being the curious me, I started researching about the place and what type of food they serve. To my surprise, I learned that they have an older branch in Legaspi Village, Makati. So, I invited my husband to try it out one day.

To be honest, I’m not really a fan of western food, but my husband is into it. Bondi & Bourke serves Australian cuisine. I did my homework by reading blogs and finding out what’s good to eat or if there’s anything that would interest my taste. When we got to the place, I was already fixed on what to order.

The place is very spacious, modern and minimalist. I like the feel that their kitchen is open and I can see the staff preparing the food. It brings a little excitement just before they actually serve the food.

As mentioned earlier, I was already fixed with my order. I got the STEAK AND MUSHROOM PIE WITH FRIES ON THE SIDE - Php495 (braised beef ragout, garlic mushroom, puff pastry). I ended up eating just half portion it. For some reason, I really didn’t enjoy the taste (I liked the fries), but my husband said that they do it very well. I’m not surprised since I’m a big fan of Japanese, French & Filipino cuisine. My taste palete is totally different.

I also ordered the CALAMANSI PANDAN ICED TEA (not sure if this is correct) and it was really refreshing! I’ve never had something like this before.

I’m glad I tried it here though! It's a good preview on what to expect with regards to food the next time I step in Australia! 128523

Happy Eating!!!

I would recommend the Mediterranean Parmas and the Slow Braised Beef Ribs. The beef and mushroom pie is also good but what stood out are the parmas and ribs. A parmas is like pizza, except that its crust is chicken fillet instead of pizza dough. There are 2 large servings per order. We tried the classic parmas also, but for me it was just like the ordinary chicken parmigiana. Mediterranean parmas is better. The slow braised beef is tender and flavorful and I could tell it has truffle too. It smelled and tasted really good. It is served with mashed potato. These 2 dishes are already good for sharing. We also ordered salad but it was nothing extraordinary. I could do better at home.

Aaand the star of the night is the sticky toffee pudding which is absolutely to die for. I would even go back here just for this dessert. It also has this butter caramel sauce which makes it more dangerously delicious. Oh my, you should try it!

I loved the modern interiors and the warm lighting. The place is really clean too. It tends to get packed on Friday nights so better make a reservation. Average price for most of the food is around Php 600-800 but the steaks are a different story 128516!
Anyway, the servings are big enough. Remember, this is Australian food we are talking about. So happy eatin', mate!

Walked-in dinner time with no reservations for a table good for 9, and luckily got seated in their spacious, modern-looking function room!

Everything was EXCELLENT- service, food, and even their playlist! I think they were playing some jazz music at the background.

My favorites:

US prime rib paired with potato puree
Classic australian (chicken) parma
Salad (forgot the name.. oops!)
Steak & bacon pie
Ox tail pasta
And the PANNA COTTA was so SO GOOD!

Price points are jusified by quantity (all good for sharing) and quality of course!

B&B is prolly now my top 1 favorite resto in the area. Looking forward to dining here again!

Bondi reminds me alot of great memories, one of it was the rows of restaurants with just a stone throw away from the fine white sands. So came this resto on an area at makati that i seldom passed by, one thing for sure is that it would be of great help to have a reservation before coming here on a friday night.

This place is on the expensive side, and if its an australian resto, you cant go wrong with steak or burger and i went with the latter. Order a australian burger at 700, it was a really huge burger with thick patty, steak, beetroot, caramelized onions, etc. So again, this is a huge burger. After finishing our dinner, we were given a complentary white chocolate brownies so we decided to order flat white and again we were given complementary macarons. 128522

The ambiance was great and so is the service. Its quite pricey so I expected more from the flavors. We ordered the Salmon and some kind of beef pie, Somebody else ordered for the group so I can't remember. If I am paying 5-star hotel food prices I expect hotel quality but I don't think it even came close. Its not bad but I just don't think its worth it. I say "like" because I didn't pay for it but if I will spend my money here I will think twice. There are tons of options in Makati after all.

Been eyeing this restaurant for months now. I usually passed by it when I crave for Charlie's grind and grill burgers and fries as it is near the area. Also, have been reading good reviews about it and the pictures are just so inviting.

Since it was in Makati area, where I am always around, Teemee T and I decided to eat here after work. The restaurant serves Australian cuisine.

When we entered, we were greeted by a server and I informed them that i had a reservation for 2. One of the server nicely asked for my bag and helped me put it at the hook under the table.

Since it was our first time, we decided that we should try their pies (since pies seems to be a very common food in australia). We ordered their Steak and Mushroom pie with fries as sides. The pie seem small when served but once you cut it open, you will be welcomed by a lot of tender beef chunk slices (and i mean a lot) which was oozing out of the pie dough. The beef was saucy, sweet with a hint of salt and pepper-y. While i was eating it, i was thinking "masarap iulam sa kanin". The pie dough was also buttery, milky and soft. The fries was also delicious, not salty too.

We also ordered their Australian Burger, which was described in their menu as "Everything the Australian way" so another reason to be ordered by first timers. It had a thick burger patty, bacon, egg, greens, tomato cheese and steak slice. But what i liked about this burger is the sauced used with it. It was very delicious. The burger was really heavy even if i only ate half of it.

They provided water without us even asking, which was a plus for me. Their restroom was also very clean and the interior was nice, which was another plus for me. The restaurant was also very classy, even the people eating in it, they were dressed nicely. It wasn't very noisy either which is a very good place for catching up with small groups of families, friends or even for an intimate date as you will be able to hear each other. I also noticed that their menu was really short, just 2 pages for appetizers, mains and desserts. Everything that goes out of the kitchen looks delicious as well.

I am craving pizza and chicken so I went for the classic australian parma and it is undeniably good as always. My colleagues ordered oysters and I am drooling to try one but I have to resist the urge since I have stomach flu that day. Going back. My chicken parma is delicious as it is really tender and cheezy and you can choose between salad or fries and the fries tasted like a truffle fries. I should have ordered their chocolate lamingtons coz I know they have really good lamingtons but I am just too full to eat one. Maybe next time. 128522

Had a lovely dinner with my workmates here. I haven't heard of this restaurant prior to our dinner so I was surprised to see how busy the place was.

All the food served to our table looked and tasted fresh and delicious. I've tried the following: Prawn Salad, Steak and Bacon Pie and Prawn Linguine (shown on pic). I enjoyed the salad & the pasta. The pie was delicious but maybe Aussie pies aren't really my cup of tea. Two of my workmates ordered burgers. They were huge.

Ambience was nice though can be a bit intimidating imo. Saw some familiar faces. We also saw Ben Chan arrived with his group. They headed straight to the private area of the resto🤓

Too bad we were all in a hurry for our next meetings so we didn't have time for desserts. I'll go back & try them next time128522

​No plans​ of eating out last Thursday but I suddenly got a call from JP G. that he’s in the area with Chichi T. and Kirby G. and they’re about to have lunch. I just finished eating but I told me them that I’ll drop by. So hard to say no. Hahaha!

We met at Your Local but they were full and we were put on the waiting list. No patience to wait and the three were already starving since it was almost 1PM, so we just waited for Yina M. to arrive before moving to Bondi and Bourke.

They two guys and Chichi ordered a Steak and Bacon Pie and an Australian Burger to share. The burger was huge and it looks really epic! Piled high with prime beef patty, egg, cheese, bacon and strip steak. Meatlovers rejoice! Not a big fan of pies, but the Steak and Bacon Pie​​ looked delicious too. Puff pastry stuffed with bacon and beef ragout, topped with more bacon. Sounds sinful, right? I’ll probably reconsider to try this on my next visit.

Yina wanted dessert so she ordered a lamington and shared it with me. I don’t remember how the chocolate lamington tastes like anymore since I think I enjoyed the strawberry one more the last time we ate here. Moist chocolate sponge cake filled with a thin layer of cream, coated with desiccated coconut. Not too sweet, very light. Yumm!9786

300th post! 127881

Looloo, may forever tayo. 128153

We went here last Christmas for lunch and we easily made late reservations. Although they were holding a private event a few hours later, we really didn't feel that we were being rushed to leave. Nonetheless, a steady flow of lunch crowds were also entertained by the resto. 128077🏼

We ordered A LOT of food (we were a party of 8) so we shared the dishes. Good thing to note that most of their plates are good for sharing, but don't expect to feel stuffed if you're just dining here for two and you decide to order just two dishes.

For me the highlight of my meal was the steak. 128046 the Creekstone Ribeye was served after 40 mins and surprisingly after ordering a lot of appetizers and other mains, we still felt so hungry when this was served. They split the steak into two trays so each table could have a fair share. The meat was cooked to medium rare perfection.

Although some people are not really into the whole bloody meat thing, the certified carnivores in our table were quite pleased with this simple yet flavorful steak.

The veggies and mashed potato that came with it really went well with the meat. For the 6k price tag? It's worth it. Just make sure you order this when you're dining with at least 10 people so you still have enough money and appetite to try the rest of the dishes! 128514

Make it a point to order their ribeye when you visit Bondi because it will truly be the highlight of your dining experience here. Sulit talaga! 128077🏼

Of course we got the usual carbonara (truffle!), the fresh focaccia (so addicting), and the prawn salad. The steak and chicken pies were okay, not really a fan of savory pies.

The sticky toffee pudding was the bomb! 127881 We ordered an off the menu dessert which was similar to a bundt cake but it wasn't really that memorable for me.

Their specialty drinks were okay, I wish that they provide some sort of strainer for some of their drinks, it felt awkward when I had to remove some of the leafy ingredients from my mouth after every sip! 128514

Ambiance was great, Chef Wade was there who was literally very hands on on every dish that came out of the kitchen. You know what they say, the more well-prepared your dish looks, the more hands and fingers have touched it. 128541

Oh. And their comfort room is super clean! With built-in bidet! 128701

Adios! 128111

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, oi, oi!

The takaw group of self-proclaimed kaladkarins met up here to try this Australian restaurant along Salcedo Street, together with a few newly found acquaintances. Thanks to the manicism of Jayson, 11 of the 12 of us tried Bondi for the first time. Kristin came in here previously only to try the meat pie so she was still equally excited to dine here. When we were all discussing where to eat days before, everyone unanimously said B&B. I was in a Looloo hiatus for a while so I wasn’t aware of this place.

We met at 7:00PM and discussed what to order in the patio before we went in. Let me say that the outdoor seating was very comfy and cool. I was happy to see Chef Wade in and out of the kitchen as it was an assurance to me that he was actually there to oversee my food. I’ve noticed that some restaurants just use a famous chef but really just eventually leave the kitchen to his executive chef.

Going into the restaurant it was very amusing how excited these Looloo bellies are. I was just really hungry and couldn’t wait to eat. Decor is clean and bright. The table was just wide and beautiful. Not stone though as I initially thought. We ordered food to share. Each plate was passed on from end to end so everyone could try it. It was great too that people made sure to get just enough food so everyone in the group could try them and indulged themselves with a second and third helping only when everyone was served.

Some in our group had comments about the service, especially the water refills. I’m glad I didn’t feel that lack of service because I was probably busy looking, smelling and eating the food. I forgot to be thirsty!

Here are my 127775127775127775127775127775

127873Slow Braised Beef Ribs
Truffle mash, greens, mushroom jus, sprouts.
Holy heavens! Ang sarap! If this place wasn’t swanky I’d grab the bone and lick it. Which reminds me, I should’ve brought it home for my dog. Oh well. Anyway, if you’ve noticed my posts I do love myself a good braised beef. Fall off the bone. The mash was so creamy. I kinda had to make a pitch for this to be added to our list. Buti na lang pumayag! I was about to complain that there’s not enough meat for its 995-peso price tag. However looking at the photo now, there was actually lot of meat for 1, enough beef if shared by 2, but definitely not enough for 12 of us.

127873Penne Truffle Carbonara
I wasn’t expecting to love this. Because I find carbonara unexciting as it’s so easy to make. They executed this dish perfectly, and it’s not just because of the truffle. We ordered a second serving for this because everyone loved this.

127873Mediterranean Chicken Parma
Olives, basil, feta, capers, lemon, Savino’s sauce, ham, mozzarella and fries.
Took me by surprise too. The serving is bigger than my face. Now I know why this is considered as Australian comfort food. Eat it immediately as its best enjoyed from the oven where the cheese is still . I read the fries were supposed to be good here but nah, I’d rather order it again with a salad.

127873Sticky Toffee Pudding
Mother of Pearl! I must’ve been on the brink of a food coma because I thought I was dreaming and seeing the pudding swimming in liquid gold. Oh the sparkle in my eyes when it was delivered to our table. Soft, gooey, just the right sweetness complimented by the cream sauce.

127873Mango Shortcake
It was a good change of flavor as we just ate absurdly rich food. I love anything ripe mango. Off the menu.

Other recommended dishes are their pies & lamingtons. Did you know you can cut the lamington’s into 12 pieces to share?

When deciding to order the Creekstone Prime Rib-Eye I actually suggested to pass on this. Parang nalungkot mga tao. There was a short silence of heartbreak. Yun pala it’s been heavily reviewed here that’s why they all wanted to dine here. We grill our own USDA steaks at home, including ribe-eyes, so I wasn’t too excited to try this. Pre-ordered 40 minutes in advance, this was still served last, maybe done so to be the pièce de résistance of the night. Sadly, we didn’t get the maddening high we were expecting. We kinda looked at each other for confirmation. The steak itself was cooked perfectly to our liking – medium, great char, pink on the inside, seasoned simply with just salt and pepper to bring out the purity of the beef. It had all the components of a great steak. The problem was the meat itself. It was almost tough and almost hard to chew. Not buttery, melt in your mouth. You all know what I mean. I wanted to tell the chef his meat supplier might have given him terrible portion. Maybe I should’ve. I actually felt sad the meal was to end this way. We needed dessert to cheer us up and we happily accepted the complimentary desserts in addition to our lamingtons. That sticky toffee pudding put the flutter back in my heart.

The steak & mushroom pie, lamb pie, 2 sticky toffee puddings, and 2 mango shortcakes were given to us compliments of Chef Wade. I already decided on my rating before the desserts came, so I don't think these items could've swayed my ranking.

It was great to have dined with Isha S, Jayson J, Kristin A, Marc David M, Maureen S, Roy Lambert T, Uael C and the | gods. When you come say hi to bad-ass twins Bondi & Burke that help secure the restaurant. They can even park your car for you.

While I was on an extended hiatus, Looloo welcomed me back as if I never left. I have been using this app since 2013, been here long enough to even have that limited edition white tee. So why do I love |? I’ve had wonderful conversations with strangers, received recommendations for places I’d never heard of and eventually loved eating in, met a bunch of crazy people who just talk about food, food, and food. All reviews are important, no one ever bullies anyone into thinking their opinion matters more than the others. I especially love reviews of places I’ve never been to. I have heard some chismis though that people have gone maniacal when they didn’t win a contest, which I just amusingly laughed at. Seryosohan talaga hahaha. Parang Miss Colombia at Miss Germany.

127881127881127881Merry Christmas everyone and here’s to more feasting in the coming 2016!127881127881127881

Me and my friends had dinner a couple of weeks ago to try the most talked about Australian Restaurant ib Makati.

We had the lamb & tomato pie and it was good 128077🏼 we also had the carbonara, bourke (salad) with arugula, almonds, cherry tomatoes, orange, goat cheese and parma ham and it was really good and for dessert we had the big lamingtons, we had the strawberry and lemon and they were good too!

The place was jammed packed when we aarived but we had a reservation so we were seated right away, the service was soooo poor128078🏼128078🏼128078🏼 because they were slow and the servers weren't really attentive, because when we asked for another bottle of wine, we had to call her again after 30mins ,she totally forgot about the wine 128532
I asked for a water refill and she came back after like 15 mins.. WTF?! Right?!

Bondi, is a popular beach and Bourke, is a town in north-west New South Wales, Australia. For whatever reason these places are chosen to be the resto's namesake; one thing is clear to me - Bondi&Bourke offers comfort food well-loved from the down under.

I got invited by fellow looloo reviewers for B&B dining. When i came in, Jayson J Kristin A Christina R Maureen S Roy Lambert T And Isha S were already waiting for our turn to settle in. They ordered in advance as the creekstone takes 40 minutes to prepare. Chef wade arranged for us in the private room, good for about 30-35 guests.

128204 Steak and Mushroom Pie 127775127775127775127775
The braised beef was fork tender. It went reall well with garlic mushroom, encapsulated by puff pastry.

128204 Lamb Pie 127775127775127775127775
Similar with steak and mushroom and without the muttony aftertaste. It came with classic salad with balsamic and olive oil dressing. Australians do great pies are indeed!

128204 Mediteranean chicken parma 127775127775127775127775
Served with savino sauce, the chicken breast was tender, and thankfully not as dry as it usually is. It is topped with ham and a good dash of parmesan. This dish is good for 2.

128204 Penne Truffle Carbonara 127775127775127775127775
My favourite because of the thick bechemel and the undeniable essence of truffle. I can eat it by myself. 5 stars!

128204 Seared Salmon 127775127775127775127775
Reliable for it's savoury taste. A stand out because of its subtle taste vs the roster of dishes we've tried. (See pic)

128204 US beef ribs 127775127775127775127775127775
I really enjoyed this ensemble bedded with truffle to infused mashed potato. Beef is fork tender and that thick sauce is a beauty, i wanna cry :) 5 stars!

128204 Creekstone Prime ribeye 127775127775127775
The 40 minute waiting time to bring this 1.2 kg medium rare ribeye is just so-so. It costs 6,000 bucks, wich is a different discussion altogether. Nothing spectacular but it is still good.

128204 Lamingtons127775127775127775127775
This is an aussie treat, made of sponge cake, raspberry jam, coated with dessicated coconut. We had chocolate and lemon, which is perfect to cleanse the palate cleansing.

128204 Sticky Toffee Pudding 127775127775127775127775127775
Its an edible OMG! The pudding has hints of berry and nutmeg. It is drenched with a creamy vanilla and caramel sauce. Perfecto!

128204 Mango shortcake 127775127775127775127775
It has a texture of Cornbread but really good. Its not in the menu, and was whipped pro bonno because our mark's bday bash :)

What makes this place unique? Its their fine selection of pies and Lamingtons. Bondi and bourke is a great place to experience the land down under in a gastronomic lense. Service is great, but price is a bit intimidating. Should i be back? Yes! But I'll order one dish at a time :) nice to see you as well Peanut D and Odell R :) belated happy birthday Marc David M! :)

Food was good but felt a little overrated.

I was excited for that Creekstone but when I tried it, well it didn't meet my expectation after reading a lot of raves about it. Good thing I shared it with a group otherwise it's 5,9++ I'm not gonna get back.. Don't get me wrong, It's a good chunk of steak and is cooked right but there was nothing special about it aside from it's sheer size. I liked the Mustard though 128522

The Beef ribs were actually much better (Pictured above). I enjoyed this one but again a bit on the expensive side considering the serving size.

400th review and my final entry for this year's looloo explorer pack giveaway! 128588🏻

I don't think we'll ever get tired of dining here at Bondi & Burke. It's become one of, if not, our favorite restaurant to date! Why? Because we're guaranteed a good time! Who wouldn't want awesome food with the awesome company, right?

This is a late review since this happened last month pa. It was supposed to be a surprise birthday celebration for Julie J and Neil R. But it turned out that they were also surprising me early for my birthday! I knew because the boyfriend could not keep secrets from me. HAHAHAHA! Sorry, guys!

They ordered ahead of time so I wasn't sure what we'll be eating that day, but I was sure of the Creekstone Ribeye. We always get it medium rare so we can have a bit of time to take pictures before it becomes medium. This never fails to make us sigh with happiness and content. THEIR STEAK IS THE BOMB. Walang wala si Mamou. 128527

We also had their Moroccan Chicken Salad which was made with cracked wheat and had tahini sauce. A good alternative for those who don't want too much greens.

They had something new on the menu that time so we ordered one of their Pides. It's like a pizza, but on a bread. It's hard to explain but it's really really good. They were very generous with the padano on top which is 128076🏻! I love cheese!

Chef Wade also made something off the menu for us that day: gnocchi! I LOVE IT! sorry but I love my carbs. 128514 The sauce really complimented the potato dumplings. 128588🏻

We had a pahabol order of their beef ribs, which was so good that I wanted to eat it all by myself. It was very tender and flavorful! Good thing I was already full that time.

We also had their oysters, chicken parm, a salmon dish, chicken fettuccine, and their truffle carbonara. I'm not a fan of salmon so it's just okay for me. You can check out my comments on the other dishes mentioned in my previous reviews. 9786

Even if we had too much to eat, we still got their desserts. 3 big lamingtons, and a sticky toffee pudding. My favorite remains to be the strawberry lamington! 9786

In the middle of our lunch, we found out that Chef Wade was treating us that day. We didn't want him to sponsor our lunch but he insisted and said "I like you guys. This is on me." His words, not mine. So thank you Chef Wade! 128536

What made this lunch more memorable is that K was officially introduced to #TeamClingy. And that Doc April H and Ruth A came too!

I'm sure we'll be back again this year! Doc, yung hindi na traffic para you can try the entrees as well 128514

Thank you #TeamClingy for always making us feel special on our birthdays! You the best, guys. Labyululs foreverrrr Carla M Chichi T Dastine S Kirby G JP G Neil R (will tag the rest below128517)

DISCLAIMER: My rating is in no way affected by his treat as we all paid our share in advance. 9786

Ain't this a beaut?!

This chocolate filled cookie pie is the reason i was back at Bondi in 14 hours. I convinced Carla M and Kirby G to come along with me for lunch! Since one of us was rushing to get to work (name starts with a K and ends with an irby) we had the food served all together even the dessert.

We ordered our faves:

127807127811 Moroccan chicken salad - this is quinoa filled and i remember that it had more greens. I liked it better with more greens but this is never disappointing and i think i had too much greens this week already.

128019 chicken fettuccini pasta - a fave of Carly and Kirby's. I remember the flavor being a lot stronger that didn't make it a favorite. Upon trying it again, sarap na sarap ako!!!!

127837 truffle penne pasta - suuuuper indulgent and rich! Pure 10084️! Even chef wade was laughing at me for being so giddy about this. "Really?" Dude, i wasn't kidding nor acting - i love pasta!!! Carla also likes this one, i was afraid she wouldn't eat it because sometimes truffle can taste like gas (although none of us have tried gas, hmm or maybe yung sa fishball?)

127850 chocolate filled cookie pie or should I say nutella filled cookie pie? This round concoction is around six to eight inches in diameter and found in its center is nutella. If you think that's not enough, the whole pie is doused in condensed milk! So it looks like a volcano in island. The crust is still a cookie so it needs to be sliced with a knife and served. Believe me, this isn't a dessert you can tackle alone! And i am so, so, so very glad i had two friends have it with me. The best part is that they enjoyed it, too!!!! 128522 yay!!! I felt victorious!! 128588🏽128588🏽 It's a shame Julie J couldn't make it.

I still get kilig thinking of this cookie! 128522128522128522

Someone craved for a cookie pie today so minutes before lunch break, she was convincing me and Kirby G to have lunch at Bondi & Bourke. Take note, she just had dinner there last night. You probably know her, Yina M? *ehem* 128540

But of course, Kirby and I gave in. #TeamClingy loves Bondi & Bourke! I’ve been here several times and I was always satisfied with their food and top notch service. I brought my family here as well and we stepped out of the restaurant with happy tummies. 128512

We chose three dishes to share for our FriYAY lunch. These are actually our favorites and are always present every time we dine here. Got two pasta dishes—Penne Carbonara and Chicken Fettuccine, and a Moroccan Chicken Salad (I always find myself craving for this). I skipped the Chicken Fettuccine since I’ve had it in almost all of my previous visits. Surprisingly, I enjoyed their Penne Carbonara today! 128539 Yina knows I dislike anything with truffle oil because it’s “lasang gas” but Bondi & Bourke’s pasta isn’t! The truffle taste was just subtle and didn't leave any weird aftertaste. I loved how creamy and flavorful this dish was. 128556

But the star of today’s lunch was the Chocolate Filled Cookie Pie. This is actually the main reason why we ate here. Yina and I drools every time we see anything chocolate chip on Instagram and Facebook. She tried this last night and was too excited to let me try it too. Say hello to this supersized, chewy chocolate chip cookie pie stuffed with Nutella and drenched in condensed milk. Rich, decadent, so chocolatey. What's not to love? I can just imagine this with a dollop of vanilla ice cream... ahhh heaven. 128525

Never gonna get tired of having lunch with these 'karen guys errday. Yes, we're clingy like that. 128129🏻 Julie J Chichi T sayaaaang you guys didn't go!

Smile 128523 we told each and every dishes that was served. But I wanted to give myself a facepalm after reviewing the photos I took from our unofficial Looloo meet-and-eat 128514128514128514 some were really good but also capturing someone else's plate. I lost my senses after waiting for 2 hrs before we got to eat dinner... Imagine the control 128513128513128513 so in this spirit, I decided to get real and just post a picture that captures not just one but 2 plates 128514128514128514128514128514 #magpakatotoo including their owners' hands

I have long been eyeing Bondi&Burke but I never really read the reviews even hahaha irony of life! So when Jayson J was planning for our Team Kaladkarin part 2: the unofficial eat-up, I suggested this place. I have extremely high expectations after seeing quite a flood of reviews and notifications.

Finally after 1-2 weeks and close to 400+ FB messages, there were 11 of us in B&B. We ordered as much as our pockets would allow us.

Creekstone US Prime steak - the blackhole of wallets wasn't exactly my piece of meat 128541 I think it was good but not something i would wait another 40 mins for. But happy to be in a big group so we get to consume together 1.2kg of meat! Share the fats 128586

Seared Salmon Fillet - I regretted this dish 128563 it's really bland..

Lamb pie and steak&mushroom pies - quite unique but I hope that the sauce wasn't that overpowering and could have been distinct depending on the meat. I felt it tasted the same for both pies 128528

Truffle carbonara - really yummy and start of our team's love affair with truffle hehe

Mediterranean Chicken Parma - oh I love the combination of tomato sauce, tender chicken meat and arugula. Just perfect! 128076🏻

Beef ribs - refer to picture hehe, this one was really good! I will come back for this! Though i prefer lesser bones 128541 show me the meat! Hahaha i love the potato puree drizzled with truffle, which went to well with the tender beef 128523

Lamingtons - this was our first dessert for the night. We got lemon and chocolate flavor. I prefer lemon one, especially after a string of gamey dishes.

Mango shortcake - i like this dessert the most. It's light and refreshing with a little bit of jelly-like layer.

Toffee pudding - not in the menu, thanks to Chef Wade for letting us try this for free! (Along with the other desserts, and the pies!). This is quite a heavy dessert and served warm. I think it is best eaten with afternoon tea! Almost everyone loved this sweet ending 9786

PS. If you're having trouble finding parking slots or making antay your sundo 128514 Kuya Bondi and Kuya Burke will assist you hahahaa. Too bad I wasn't able to take a picture with their attentive and friendly parking attendants. They also look like twins 128516

Got invited to my first eatup albeit unofficially. 128514 Thanks Roy Lambert T for tagging me along and Jayson J, the main organizer, for letting me come! It was great meeting some of the other looloo reviewers and part of the looloo team as well including Peanut D, Odell R, Kiko G, Marc David M, Kristin A, Christina R, Uael C and Maureen S!

When I found out where we were going to eat, my heart did a couple somersaults of joy. I've been eyeing Bondi and Bourke for quite a while and now I had an excuse to actually go out and eat there!

We were able to dine in their private room, which we shared that evening with another big group. The place in general looked nice and classy but not too intimidating. Now let's cut to the food:

127837 One of my favorite dishes that night was the Penne Carbonara! Serving was good for about 2 people but since we had to share across the table, I only had a bit. Huhu. I'm super glad we asked for another order of this dish! It was super creamy and flavorful.

127830 My other favorite dish was the Slow Braised Beef Ribs. Tender, flavorful ribs atop a bed of super creamy mashed potatoes drenched in a delightful savory sauce. Mmm. Unfortunately, it was almost all bone, though. Would have wanted seconds (and thirds and fourths..) of this dish.

⚫️ We also had two of their classic Australian pie variations - the Lamb as well as the Steak and Mushroom. I enjoyed the crisp outer pie crust and the soft insides containing a hefty portion of the savory filling. I was able to try the Lamb pie and it was good. It had the distinct lamb taste to it without it being too overwhelming. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try the Steak and Mushroom pie as it was gone by the time I started looking for it haha. You can have the pies served with either fries or a garden salad. We were able to try both. They were okay. Just enough to fill the void in between bites.

⚫️ We ordered the Seared Salmon fillet as well so our table wouldn't be filled with too much meat. This was an okay dish, tasted quite ordinary for me.

⚫️ Aaand we had their Mediterranean Parma. Big serving, enough for all of us across the table! I liked this as well. Chicken breast cooked just right topped with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. Although I'm still not super crazy about things with tomato sauce, this was admittedly good.

11088️ Dun dun duun! And for the star of the night: The Creekstone Prime Rib-Eye Steak! We actually ordered this ahead of time because it takes 40 minutes preparation (more or less, depending on doneness). This item is actually super intimidating to order with the almost 6,000 peso price tag attached to it. With that asking price, expectations were set high (at least mine was). We had this steak cooked medium and were waiting patiently for it. Finally, it arrived after all the other dishes. And oh, what a sight it was! Served in a pan, sliced in equal parts was 1.2 kgs of meat, brown at the edges, nice and pink in the center. It was served with a small pot of mashed potatoes and a dish of mustard. It was not as tender as I was expecting although taste-wise, it was good, accentuated nicely by the mustard and paired well with the mashed potatoes.

After a sumptuous dinner, it was on to dessert. So glad and grateful that these were on the house! 128522 Thanks a lot, Chef Wade!

⚫️ First up were the Lamingtons in lemon and chocolate. It was my first time to try this and it's apparently like a sponge cake with some type of jam sandwiched in between and then covered with desiccated coconut. It was light and not too sweet. I liked the lemon variant more than the chocolate as the zesty twist made it more refreshing!

⚫️ Next was the shortcake. Again, this dessert was not too sweet, tasted fine as well.

⚫️ My favorite of the desserts though, was the Sticky Toffee Pudding! It really was sticky although soft but firm. It was definitely one for the sweet tooths and naturally, I enjoyed it.

So that's it for the food! Prices are all a bit on the high side. Although, I did enjoy everything I had (just some more than others).

As for the service, it was just okay. One of the servers at the beginning was very helpful and gave us good recommendations but throughout dinner, we constantly had to ask for water refills, etc.

Overall, definitely a great experience! Good food and good company definitely go together.
