Review - Harry's Bar & Dining

This week Alex Harmon investigates a Bondi hotspot that caters to the caveman diet...

A Bondi institution has joined the 21st century – this launderette-cum-convenience store is now a dining destination complete with organic produce, cold-pressed juices and paleo. options.

The turquoise espresso machine is the calling card of Harry Lambropoulos, his sister and brother-in-law, who have teamed up with Bryan O’Callaghan (formerly of the Tilbury Hotel).

For a fancy breakfast, try the Crispy Rolled Egg ($19.50) with black beans, chorizo, avocado and cherry tomatoes, topped with coriander and lime.

Moving into lunch, the talk of the town is Seared Scallops ($18), juicy and plump with turmeric puree and crispy parsnip and pomegranate chips.

With brekky and lunch going off, they quickly opened for dinner - even without a liquor license (watch this space). Dinner is small but excellent with Pan Roasted Holmbrae Chicken ($29) the standout. This juicy chook from the Southern Highlands has been pampered, and the chef delivers it in a dish with poise.

Eton Mess ($12)
is anything but untidy with micro herbs and puffs of Chantilly cream.

Try a Homemade Soda ($6) - watermelon and mint, or ginger beer - popping with flavour; there’s nothing watered down about these puppies.

Coffee is married with almond and macadamia milk – the barista goes through five litres a day and it’s still not enough. Harry, you know your audience!
