Sharing over wine @Parida Bondi Beach

Parida is located on the esplanade at Bondi Beach. It is in a brand new building near the QT hotel and is sophisticated in its set up and styling. It ishe perfect spot for enjoying tapas and wine on a Friday night (or any night for that matter). There are seats overlooking the beach and high tables, set with candles made for a cosy and intimate setting.

Parida also sells breakfast and lunch, but on this occasion we were here for the dinner menu. Recently attaining a liquor license means you get to enjoy a drink after work or with your dinner. We began with a red and white wine and there’s a good range to select from.

The food is a shared style menu with small and larger plates. We went for the polenta chips with truffle mushroom and these were nice and crispy and with a nice and strong truffle flavor and kale.

The chorizo croquettes were also nice and crispy with and cheesy filling. We loved these and actually compared them to “cheese and bacon” balls (the chips) and I would certainly order these again.

The meatballs, filled with cheese, tomato and oregano sauce as well as crispy onion rings. The meat was moist and nicely cooked and the whole combination was very flavoursome.

For the larger plate, we struggled to decide what to pick, with a number of great sounding options. We went for the lamb shank to share. This cooking method meant the meat beautifully fell off the bone. It was sitting atop an extremely good and very creamy pomme puree and a tomato puree sauce.

We polished all the food off in no time and really enjoyed the food and the ambience, as well the friendly service provided by Frida.

Thank you to Frida and Peter for the invitation to dine.
