Fat Rupert’s, Bondi
When you hear that there’s a place in Bondi that’s making people faint from delight after eating their chocolate brownies, then you run, not walk, there. Fat Rupert’s in Bondi is serving up one helluva menu, with Mini Yeezy Burgers, Green Papaya Piggy and Haloumi Salad just some of the devilish goodness you’ll be devouring.
“(There’s) great food if you’re trying to impress that special someone,” says owner Aaron Pearce.
“In the coming months both the food and drinks lists will be changed, so expect a little difference each time you come.” Ears prick up at the mention of ‘drinks’? We can’t blame you – you won’t be able to put down your The Randy Rupert and the Bloody Merry Cocktails are a delightful twist on an old classic. “It’s a new age feel on old school favourites; if you liked the old offering at 249 Bondi Road, you’ll luuuurve the new one,” says Aaron. “Whether you’re hungry, or just want a few drinks, we have you covered.”
After returning from an overseas adventure, Aaron had a self-confessed ‘YOLO’ moment. “I always wanted to have a small bar ever since living near Ching-a-Lings when they first opened,” he says. “And then the opportunity came along for this property…,” and well, the rest is history.
You’ll find your new favourite small bar basking in the glow of red street lanterns on the corners of Bondi Road and Boonara Avenue. Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a thrift shop meets pawn store meets New York loft apartment. Think exposed brick walls, sleek hardwood tables and hanging ferns. “Picture this; we want you to feel like you’re in your own funky home, but being served by our fantastic team. Don’t worry we’ll take care of everything, drink and be merry well into the night!”
Hey, they’ll even take care of the washing up! When asked about three words that described his venue, Aaron replies, “Mum is proud”. Now you gotta love a man who makes his mamma proud. But next to those swoon-worthy brownies? Sorry, but we know whose team we’re batting for.
