About Me

Food is one of my many joys in life. It is a common bond I share among my friends and family. Combining food and travel makes it all the more interesting. I enjoy going out for a good meal with friends and family. The array of various cuisines and our fantastic array of produce really makes Sydney such a great city to live in. Blogging is my hobby and my posts on restaurant meals I have had are paid for and not gratis. Any gratis provided to me will always be stated beforehand.

Mondial is a Spanish tapas bar located in the suburb of Grey Lynn. This was an exciting find as we did want to try out hip restaurants with good food at affordable prices. My friend (DD) checked out some blogs and we decided to try Mondial out. There is a no booking policy so it was sheer luck that we did not have to wait to get a couple of seats at the bar.

The restaurant was full and had a very hip buzz. The bartender was constantly busy serving drinks. I really liked the vibe.

We decided to have our meal at the bar as it would take a while to wait for a seated table. Our selection was Chicken liver parfait with Crostini, Prawns with garlic and chilli, Grilled Chorizo with onion jam and the special of the day Poisson Cru with Snapper.

I have to say the favourite dish was the special of the day. The Poisson Cru was delicious, there were subtle flavours of the milk and crunchy cucumbers with tender snapper infused with the milk. The second favourite was the chicken liver parfait. The crostinis worked really well with the liver parfait. The chorizo tasted like the authentic chorizos from Spain, not the version that we typically see at the supermarkets and most delis. The garlic prawns were a little disappointing, the garlic flavour was not strong enough.

In general, I really enjoyed the meal and I will definitely return if given the opportunity.
