After months of speculation and a barrage of teasers, BONDI&BOURKE has revealed its second home at Forbes Town Center, Bonifacio Global City.

The 106-seater space is located along the stretch of Forbes Town Road in Manila’s trendy Burgos Circle neighborhood. Bondi&Bourke offers a fun, casual vibe with a bigger dining area (two floors), high ceiling, brightly lit interiors perfect for brunch or dinner, and a brand new barfor late night lingering affairs. Alfresco dining is also an option for smokers or for diners who wish to feel Manila’s recent light cloudy day breeze.

The secret of Bondi&Bourke’s success begins with multi-awarded Australian chef and owner, Wade Watson, who curates straightforward, comfort food favorites and prepares them with the best ingredients. He has cooked around the world, with postings in Canada and Australia, and as Executive Chef to the famed Lan Kwai Fong group in Hong Kong. He was previously the Executive Chef of the Abaca Boutique Resort in Cebu.

Chef Wade credits the atmosphere, service, and hard work to the restaurant’s success.

“We are focused on good food. It’s basically dishes you want to come home to after a day’s work,” he says. “There is no magic to it, really. It’s just simple food in a relaxed atmosphere, and having a team of dedicated, hardworking staff.”

Apart from a view of the chef working busily in the open kitchen, the dishes come with an added bonus: all servings are in good size portions enough for big groups to share.

Bondi&Bourke boasts a collection of imported meats and seafood, offering choices of U.S., Australian, and Creekstone Prime rib-eye steaks, Australian lamb chops, and snapper fillets accompanied by delicious side dishes. For those who cannot decide on the meat, try the best-selling Mussel and Oyster selections: Spicy Red Thai Curry, Moules Mariniere, Kilpatrick, Mornay, and Fresh-Shucked with mignonette.

When dining at Bondi&Bourke, why not eat a burger the Australian way — “With The Lot” as it is coined, stacked with a layer of U.S. prime ground beef, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, tomato, and slices of beetroot topped with fried egg.

For dessert, the Sticky Toffee Pudding is a crowd favorite as well as the land down under’s signature creation, the Lamington (available flavors are chocolate, strawberry and pandan).
