Rock 'n' roll and burgers are the most likely of bedfellows, an age-old combination that runs Bondi's casual neighbourhood eatery Bonditony's. Run by longtime Bondi local and music industry pro Tony Gosden, this Glenayr Avenue burger joint mixes rock and burgers better than Elvis Presley ever did (sorry Elvis).
Godsen used to work in the Australian music industry, so has named every last one of the menu's burgers after bands he's managed, promoted or toured —Classic Cog ($12.90), Trippin' Seahorse ($14.90), Lost Valentino ($14.90), Just a Jezabel ($14.90), Johnny Collide ($14.40). Using grass-fed, free-range produce, these burgs team with Bondi's ethically-sound food philosophy. All the beef, bacon, eggs and chicken are supplied by Bondi's own Field to Fork — you'll find them right beside Harris Farm and Da Orazio.
Drinks-wise, you've got music lovers Young Henrys on tap (they also did the sicko street art design on the joint's exterior), handpicked wines, hectic thickshakes and they do cocktails too — try the BT's Bloody Mary on for size. Wash it all down with '70s rock on the speakers and you've got yourself a solid Saturday night.
