I am starting to like Setia Walk in Puchong to be appear another main joint of drinking and eatery place. Spreading out their lovely landscaping that is one of the main crowd puller that provides great ambiance which is something unique compare to other mall. Bondi Junction.

This would be my second time here as still find parking here is a bit confusing or there weren’t proper signage up yet at the moment. Last round that I came, I visited Sushi Tei and now came back here for second round, we are in hunt for one Mediterranean food located at Block F level one. First timer here looking for this shop, surely will be lost locating. Just look for Ding Tea, and its above it.

Bondi (1)

A simple casual dining place whereby you can just hop in anytime. A place whereby its decorated with simple hanging decorations, and why Australia flag is there, its because mainly the influence are from Australia, hence Bondi Junction is the name of the shop whereby its a place in Sydney.

Its pretty amazing that they have this open concept kitchen yet you don feel that the smoke from kitchen is coming out. Maybe its non-air condition and pretty well ventilation around the area that do not make us feel it.

Bondi (7)

A simple menu with good offerings for us to hunt from. Price of dish are pretty decent.

I have tried this previously when we first drop by after my meal at Sushi Tei and instally we fall for this Focaccia Bread with 4 dips @ RM25. Made freshly by the chef with only limited offerings available. When it was place onto the table, the aroma of the freshly bake bread with rosemary and olives dotting the flat loaf entrails into our nose and just couldn’t wait to get a bite of it. .

Comes with 4 dips: sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, black olives and balsamic vinegar, and I prefer the sundried tomato and feta cheeze are awesome combination.

Bondi (9)

Wild Mushroom Soup @ RM 11 are all in homemade style with fresh ingredients that cook on the spot. Its flavourful that we need not even add in any black pepper that the taste is already there. How could we resist the temptation of this.

Bondi (10)

Roasted Pumpkin and Red Capsicum Soup @ RM 11 would be something unique for the night as there are hint of little spicy pepper taste and both are equally good. In the end, we order the soup again for another round.

Bondi (11)

This doesnt look like pizza as the own version of Bondi Junction Meat LoversRM25 topped with turkey ham, pepperoni, minced beef, onions, capsicum, olives and mozzarella. The dough are prepared daily for pizza and made fresh. Its slightly different from any other pizza that I had as the crust is thin and near to bread. I prefer meat lovers more.

Bondi (12)

Bondi Special @ RM27 – with basil pesto, olives, sundried tomatoes, capsicum, pepperoni, egg, onions and mozzarella.

Bondi (13)

To me, super star of the night would be Beef Lasagna @  RM18. After one bite of this, it instantly hit onto my top chart as one of the best. Soft filling inside out with carefully baked melted cheeze on top, with chef special tomato base sauce that make it outstanding. -Highly recommended for Beef as I think it taste much better than Chicken.

Bondi (14)

Beef Bolognese Spaghetti @ RM15 Minced beef  in Napolitana sauce with basil and parmigiano. I think this is not bad as I had the lasagna first and I think it had overpower the taste this. Spaghetti is al-dante.

Bondi (15)

Most people would misfire this dish – Chicken Gordon Bleu @ RM30 for one of a simple reason that the chicken breast would end up very dry. As for here, it suprise us that its not dry yet still quite juicy and aromatic with cheeze & ham taste in it. Well done.

Bondi (16)

Stuffed Seafood Chicken @ RM30 is one of a unique this that I have come across as  pan-seared chicken roulade stuffed with chopped seafood served with pistachio sauce, greens and grilled herbed potatoes. Its a very well balance dish with greens, roasted potato and the sauce of pistachio taste unique. What makes it perfect is with red wine that pulls the taste up very well.

Bondi (17)

Roasted Salmon with Red Pesto @ RM32 a dish that looks very healthy to me. With colourful veggie and lemon for you to squeeze on.

Bondi (18)

Comes dessert time, rarely no one will say no.

Bondi (19)

Crème Brulee, Classic Apple Pie and French Lemon Tart, @ RM10 each.

Bondi (20)

At that point, we were pretty stuff and yet the picture of this Russian Benny @ RM17 – fatty salmon, mushrooms and toast with the thick creamy Hollandaise sauce keep calling our name. Its  agreat breakfast that we order 2 portion. Do let the waiter know you prefer runny yolk as one dish the yolk are pretty cook. Of course with this great breakfast would not be complete with. . . Coffee.

Bondi (21)

Coffee in Bondi Junction are pretty good. I love their Mocha and Flat white. They are price in between RM6 and RM9

Valentines is just around the corner and looking for something pretty simple with great food, definitely this outlet would be another recommendation by me even for ordinary dining with friends and family.

To me, if I have nothing much I would not have been over to Subang Empire, as this new classy mall which is one of the upper class mall in Subang had attracted many restaurants to open in here and we are certainly spoilt with choices. One of the new discovery on the outlets here are The Vanilla Place which is located on the 1st floor of the mall that a floor below the giant slide.

[close down since 2014]

Most of us would thought that The Vanilla place is a cafe that suitable to come here perfect for their breakfast or tea beacuse of their decoration that shows more like it. When we look thru on the menu, we were quite suprise that they served some Italian and homemade pie. Price seems very reasonable for this cafe to be in this mall.

Love their decorations more like kids english style that decorate with hand paintings on the wall. . .

Poach Salmon Fillet with Saffron Sauce served with 2 huge chunk of salmon that makes our eyes turn big with just RM25.80.
