We searched high and low for a list that included only the best, but we couldn’t find one. Our good buddies at Fishbowl always give us the yums, so we had to include it on this list. With charred scallions, sesame poached chicken, shallots, pink radish, shredded carrot and beets in a fiery shoyu dressing with wasabi mayo drizzle and crispy shallots, it’s hard to go wrong. It says it all for itself.

Key Differentiators:

  • Japanese inspired flavours
  • Fresh Australian produce
  • Sustainable

Customer’s Review:

This was my first time having a poke bowl from here and it won’t be my last! So happy there are more poke bowls options around Barangaroo. Ordered the Mr X bowl with chicken and added seaweed salad on top for an extra $1. All the ingredients tasted fresh and I loved how they mixed the core ingredients together for you with the dressing.

Manly Beach 2095
Phone+61 2 9981 2654
Operating HoursDaily 10AM–4PM

Banana Blossom is the queen of on-the-go salads in Chicago (and now also the East). If you’ve never tried Banana Blossom’s recipes, it’s time to emerge from your shell and claim a permanent location near their restaurants. The Tokyo Classic is a good choice, but the Buddha’s Delight is another standout. This dish is a dream for tofu enthusiasts, with crispy egg noodles, pineapple, green papaya, nashi pear, cashews and sweet tamarind sauce…and of course tofu.

Key Differentiators:

  • Tofu salad options
  • Unique and delicious flavours
  • Permanent locations

Customer’s Review:

Easily the YUMMIEST and most creative salads around town. As a Bondi born and raised local I look for my favourite spots nearby and this is definitely one of them. Having just looked into the brand, I’m delighted to now see that there’s one even closer to me in Bondi Beach. Absolutely thrilled!


5) The Shop

Key ServiceItalian-style salad
Address78 Curlewis St, Bondi Beach.
Phone(02) 9365 2600
Operating HoursMon – Tues: 6am – 3pm
Wed – Sat: 6am – 10pm
Sun: 7am – 4pm

The Shop Bondi highlights their salad abilities by providing a diverse selection of innovative dishes. Why not sabotage the healthiness of your salad and fill it with cheese in true Italian style? We all agree, therefore go head-to-head with their Italian beef meatball salad, which includes melted cheddar, seasonal veggies, avocado, and toasted hazels. If you’re wanting to stay on track for the night, we recommend the nourish bowl with cauliflower rice, boiled egg, carrot, kale, peas, avocado, pickled ginger and toasted sesame seeds—not only will your waistline thanks us but your tastebuds as well!

Key Differentiators:

  • Diverse salad menu
  • Italian-style salad
  • Nourishing and healthy salad options

Customer’s Review:

Having grown up in Bondi, I’ve always walked past the shop but never walked in. Having sat down we were a little worried that there were only salads and sandwiches on the menu for lunch. But both of our choices were delicious. We will be back again to try the brunch.

For extra protein, add roast chicken or crispy-skinned wild-caught salmon.
