Blanca in Bondi

A fresh twist has arrived to Bondi. Normally a strip of beach cafe’s and over priced restaurants with those who strive to be seen. Nestled back in the Adina apartments building in a cosy restaurant with monochrome interiors you know you are in for something quite special.

The back story is that an ex Longrain chef , Tomi Bjork, found great success in Helsinki and Stockholm – five huge restaurant and a tv gig to be more specific. Now he’s back home and has left us a treat to enjoy.

Start with squid ink steamed bao with soft shell crab, XO mayo, cabbage and vinegar to get into the Asian Fusion mood, with subtle spanish influences. There is a whole section of the menu devoted to vegetables and we very much appreciate, as they are so healthy and delicious.

The wine list is great serving one of my go to favourites – reisingfreak. Also the gin and tonic menu is also worthwhile and fits the food well.
